Adamek v Cunningham 2 Boxing Betting Tips

Essential Betting Facts


On Saturday December 22nd These two fighters square off against each other four years after their first meeting live on NBC 4pm EDT which will be the first fight shown live on the network for eight years.

Both of these fighters have made transitions from lighter weights through to the heavyweight division but Cunningham is the smaller fighter and will have the most to do if he is going to win this fight.

Whatever happens this is a rematch of their 2008 bout when they met for the cruiserweight championship which was a massively entertaining fight and there is no reason not to expect more of the same from these two exciting fighters.

The Polish Adamek (47, 2, 29KO) fought his first fight in March 1999 in Manchester where he defeated Israel Khumalo, winning by TKO.

Adamek went on to win the vacant WBC Light Heavyweight title in 2005 defeating Paul Briggs by a majority decision on 21 May 2005. That fight was one of the most bloody ever with Briggs suffering a huge cut above his eye and Adamek bleeding from his nose continually throughout the fight.

Adamek went on to successfully defend his title twice in 2005 and 2006 but eventually lost it in controversial fashion to Chad Dawson after tripping over his feet but having the slip ruled as a knockdown. Ademek then moved up to cruiserweight and beat Saturday's opponent Cunningham in 2008 for the IBF cruiserweight title.

In 2009 he moved up to heavyweight and defeated Andrew Goleta on his way to being beaten in 2011 by Vitali Klitschko – only the second defeat of his career.

Cunningham (25-4, 12 KO) engaged in a war for the cruiserweight championship against Adamek and despite being knocked down three times it was a close fight that finished by judges split decision. Of course everyone wanted a rematch but Adamek made the move up a division and that rematch never took place until now.

Cunningham stayed in the Cruiserweight division winning, losing and then regaining his IBF title but stepping up to heavyweight division at this stage of his career is surely going to be too much to ask?

Adamek is the more experienced boxer at this level and having gone 10 rounds with Klitschko he will arguably place himself in line for another title shot if he wins this fight.

Adamek is the bookies favourite at 3/10 with Bet365 although the odds on Cunningham upsetting the rankings has shortened to 3/1 at the time of writing but that is possibly more money being put on fond remembrance than today's reality. Maybe Cunningham has more of a chance than I am giving him?

This is going to be one of those fights that are worth staying up for depending on your time zone and it is definitely worth using your £50 free bet at Ladbrokes to get on Cunningham to win.
