This rematch should have happened years ago. Adamek clearly has the the power advantage and Cunningham has the speed and boxing advantage.

Both fighters are no longer the same from the 1st time they fought but I still believe this is as 50/50 fight. I believe the key to this fight is Cunningham staying upright and using his speed to frustrate Adamek. It is interesting that Team Cunningham decided to weighin at 203 and not put on any extra weight. We will not know if its going to bite him in the butt or not but I think it'll help.

I think if Cunningham doesn't hit the canvas he will box his way to a win. I'll gladly take the underdog in a 50/50 fight. If I remember correctly Cunningham was more than a 2 to 1 favorite the last time! Also the over/under rounds is set at 11.5 which is a good sign it's going to a decision.

I wouldn't break the bank on this play but there is value in it when its a 50/50 fight in my eyes.

Cunningham +260
Cunningham by decision +400

I have it 4 rounds to 0 Cunningham. He's nailing Adamek with his right now but I'm a little concerned. Don't get overconfident and get caught

wow what a joke of a decision.

First they say its a BS DRAW then they change the scorecards and say Adamek won by SD

What a joke boxing has become.

Well frank, we both broke it down the same way and we were both right.Cunningham threw more and landed more at a higher percentage and controlled most of the rounds in what should have been an easy win. That's all you can do. The way I see it, boxing doesn't have freak turnovers that create 14 point swings like in football, so this is the equivalent. Know you nailed the pick and move on.

I feel worse for Cunningham than us. The guy has never gotten what he deserved in his career and he finally said, "fine, I'm just going to take it." He did it and they robbed him anyway.

Steve Cunningham got robbed. His upset wife, Livvy, just said "He works too hard for this." No one on press row scored it for TA

Yeah, I have a twitter account for following nothing but boxing people. Literally 100% saw it as a Cunningham win.

I bet adamek but did not get to see the fight util today (dec 24) and It tells you the subjectivity of certain fights as you guys are screaming robbery and I see an ademek win, with some room to spare. cunningham did well early on but did nothing in the second half,  adamek was landing the heavy shot in this one, I don't give cunningham a huge amount of credit for those weak behind jabs that if you watch closely were being blocked and parried for the most part,....

You're entitled to your opinion but you are in a small minority.  The press surveyed here: http://fightscorecollector.blogspot.co.uk/ had it this way. 

Press Score Total - (23), Cunningham (20), Adamek (1), Draw (2)
