TOTOWA, NJ - October 16, 2012 - Main Events and Ziggy Promotions officially announced today former world champions Tomasz Adamek, 47-2, 29 KO's, and Steve Cunningham, 25-4, 12 KO's, will meet again in a highly anticipated rematch when professional boxing returns to afternoon broadcast network television on NBC, Saturday, December 22. The fight will be held at Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem.
Adamek spoke of meeting Cunningham again, "This is a chance for Cunningham to have a rematch with me. The first time we fought there was knockdown and it was a very exciting fight, the fans loved it. I think this is going to be a very exciting fight for our fans again." Adamek added, "I am ready for a tough fight. I love a tough fight, because after every big fight I have more fans. I am looking forward to this fight with Cunningham. It has been my dream to be the champion of the world and this is important to me, I will be ready."
"This is a fight my team and I have wanted since the first one," explained Cunningham. "Adamek and I have been on two different paths, but in December our paths will collide again. I have respect for Adamek he has done great things in his career, but I'm confident I'll get the victory. I'm looking forward to it, on December 22nd I'll be the best Steve Cunningham anyone has seen yet!"
Kathy Duva, CEO of Main Events, was ecstatic,"The first fight was a fight of the year candidate in 2008 when Adamek and Cunningham were cruiserweights. The heavyweight rematch will be bigger and better so don't fill out those FOTY ballots just yet!"
The fight is promoted by Main Events and Ziggy Promotions in association with Peltz Boxing. Ticket info will be announced shortly.
