Weekend Results: Adamek Stops Bell

TOTOWA, NJ (April 19, 2008) – IBF #3 cruiserweight contender Tomasz Adamek secured a world title opportunity today by stopping IBF #7 contender O’ Neil Bell at Spodek Arena in Katowice, Poland, it was announced today by Main Events CEO Kathy Duva. Adamek floored Bell in the opening round and then schooled the former undisputed world cruiserweight champion for the next six rounds, forcing Bell to retire on his stool prior to round eight (TKO 7).

Following the bout Adamek made his plans clear: “Next is Cunningham and then a unification bout against David Haye.”

Adamek’s victory earned him the IBF’s #1 mandatory position. Both IBF champion Steve Cunningham and Adamek are mandated to battle each other in their next bouts.

At the time of the stoppage all three judges had Adamek ahead on the scorecards (69-63, 68-64, and 67 65). After surrendering following the completion of round seven, Bell complained of “dizziness” and said he “felt ill”.

“Bell was the most dangerous opponent I’ve faced,” said Adamek. “I trained hard and showed what I can do. This was my best performance. I am looking forward to the title fight.”
