Former light heavy and cruiserweight world champ Tomasz Adamek's two year quest at heavyweight will finally reach it's goal this evening as the Polish hero will challenge WBC kingpin Vitali Klitschko at Stadion Miejski in Wroclaw, Poland.
Klitschko, 42-2 (39), has won all seven of his WBC title bouts since returning from a four year hiatus and at age 40, could be looking at his best opponent since losing a close bout on cuts to Lennox Lewis eight years ago.
Despite the home advantage, Adamek, 44-1 (28), who ironically has only fought twice in his homeland since 2004, will have a tough hill to climb as Klitschko is perhaps the most difficult adversary to face in all of boxing.
Possessing monumental punching power, particularly the right hand, along with a solid chin, and a very awkward style that features punches from unusual angles, Klitschko is also unexpectedly quick for a boxer standing 6'7 tall.
These attributes will undoubtedly present problems for Adamek but the Pole will bring excellent boxing skills to the contest and should give Klitschko his first genuine test since the Corrie Sanders bout in 2004. More...

In a big night of boxing at the Stade de l’Est in Saint Denis on the beautiful Indian Ocean island of Reunion (a French overseas department), reigning WBF womens light welterweight champion Myriam Lamare (18-3, 10 KO’s) will make the second defense of her world title against the experienced former world champion Lely Luz Florez (16-5, 7 KO’s) from Columbia on September 9.
Local favorite Lamare captured the WBF belt in 2009 with a dominating decision win over Ann Saccurato (the WBF 2009 Female Fight Of The Year). She made her first title defence a successful one when she thoroughly dominated and stopped highly ranked Lucia Morelli from Italy last November in the sixth round of their bout.
Morelli has since won the WIBF lightweight world title and is still considered to be one of the best in the game. From 2004 to 2006, the 36-years old Lamara was the WBA light welterweight championess, defending that title five times. She held the WIBF strap briefly as well.
Currently residing in Marseille, France, she is known for her hard and accurate punching. Before turning professional in 2003, she won European and world titles on the amateur level.

Tonight's bout against Berto, 27-1 (21), is Zaveck's fourth defense of the IBF and is likely to be his most difficult professional fight to date
