Tony Penecale Jr - Philadelphia,
It was an excellent fight. I had the
pleasure to doing commentary on the fight
while doing my weekly radio show. It was
an example of what boxing should be. A
good, hard fight between two high-caliber
athletes. It was clean and entertaining
fight. The fans deserve a rematch. A fight
like that is good for boxing.
Karim A. Glover - Durham N.C.
With all the politics surrounding some
boxing matches....This was great! just
like the old days just good old
Boxing/Fighting. And even thought I served
in the NAVY with Steve and the best man
won on 12/11/2008. I think a rematch would
only serve as confirmation of who is the
best. I want to see a K.O. No questions
asked of who the best fighter is for you
or against you. Be Safe, Box Hard, Have
Job well do for both Steve 'USS'
Cunningham, from Philadelphia, PA and
Tomasz 'Goral' Adamek, originally from
Poland now residing in Jersey City, NJ.
Rob Roberts - Brandon, Manitoba,
Amazing fight, so obvious there needs
to be a rematch!
Brandon W - Reading, PA
Louis S. Vine III - Chicago, Il.
Even if it isn't immediate, Cunningham
deserves a shot to reclaim his title. I
personally believe Adamek and his handlers
will give him a rematch, they fought
Brian A. Settles - Flagstaff, AZ.
Such a terrific fight between the two
top cruiserweights in the world deserves a
Filip Komorowski - Dzierzgon,
Adamek won the first battle and he'll
win the second. :P
Ken Hissner - Collegeville USA
I covered this fight for Doghouse
Boxing and had Cunningham ahead 114-111.
Adamek loaded up the entire fight and
forgot his jab and combinations. It takes
more than 3 punches winning 3 rounds due
to knockdowns that he was losing up until
the knockdown to win a fight when you have
lost the other 9 rounds. Adamek and
promoter Kathy Duva were mum after the
fight when the word "rematch" was
mentioned by one of the reporters. If that
doesn't tell you something what does?
Cunningham wins the title in Poland to the
champ and comes to the USA to get
shortchanged by another fighter from
Poland. Go figure. Especially when his
promoter Don King does not complain!
Pawel Janczura - Legnica, Poland
Goral win... again!
Askia Bayne - Toronto, Ontario,
The first fight was very
entertaining... would love to see a
Bartek Gdula - Gdask, Poland
It should be a good fight for both
boxers and their fans. keep prayin' for
Shar'ron Baker - Philadelphia,
Steve absolutely deserves the
opportunity to try and regain his title it
was a great fight and I like many people
would love to these two champs do it again
Chris Brown, Houston, TX, USA
I scored it narrowly for Adamek but
wouldn't have been too bothered by a draw
or a narrow decision either way. It was a
VERY close contest. Sometimes it takes
more than once to "settle matters" between
Adamek/Cunningham appears to have the
makings of that type of matchup.
More importantly, it was an extremely
ENTERTAINING fight. It was the type of
match that boxing in general, and the
division in particular, desperately needs
Best of luck with your effort to bring
about a rematch. I'd certainly watch it!!!
Rob Epstein - New York, NY USA
Not only should the fans get a rematch
this bout should be considered for fight
of the year.
Diane Bennett - New York, NY USA
comment: FIght of the year and without
a doubt these two should go at it again.
If the second is like the first we may be

I was one the few Americans who

Vincent Baira - Reims, France
Great first fight! Great spirit! This
sport ain't dying and this particular
fight is another proof.
Rematch is a must!!
Matt Rogers - Leeds,England.
Samuel R. Townsel III - Virginia
Beach, VA U.S.A.
Being a United States Marine and a
participant and fan of boxing, I've always
wondered how those of us within the
military service would do at the top
levels of boxing. This was my first chance
to witness Steve Cunningham display his
skills and though he had some setbacks,
though discipline and grit, he fought back
and performed admirably. I'd like to see a
rematch because not only was the
controversial decision, the fight itself
displayed the beauty of the "Sweet
Science". The heart and determination of
both men led to a exciting and competitive
bout. Hopefully we get to see it again but
I believe the "USS" Cunningham will sail
his way to victory. Ooh Rah!!
Charles McFarland - Clarkston, GA
Two magnificent guys who bring it every
minute of every round. I could watch 'em
box twenty times. We deserve the fight as
much as they do. Hope they're paid
Symbol Jones - Baltimore, MD
This rematch needs to be aired on
Showtime or HBO. This was a great fight
between two great warriors.
Vernon Villanueva - Wilmington,

GREAT FIGHT! We NEED to see a rematch!
Mike Altamura - Victoria,
Bring these two back! Outstanding fight
that was a credit to the sport. Both are
great gentlemen, both deserving of a
bigger payday for a return bout.
Kevin Finger - Va Beach, VA
After being at Steve's last fight on US
soil prior to this one but having exams
during Cunningham - Adamek I, I want to be
there to see him win the title back!
Bakari Lee - Jersey City (USA)
I was there, front and center, second
row from the floor, rooting hard for the
American!!! Awesome, awesome fight, second
only to Vazquez-Marquez III for FOY.
This fight has GOT to happen again, and
we want it IN NEWARK, NJ!!!!!

It was the best fight that I ever saw

Seyun Kim - Sacramento, CA
great exciting fight, two classy
fighters, lets do it again!!
Alexander Sylvan - New York, USA
Possible Fight of the Year, certainly
close enough and more than entertaining
enough to warrant a rematch possibly on

I'd pay ppv money for a rematch
Mauro Hermida - Frederick, MD
Bring on the rematch.
Pierre Cox - New York, NY USA
It would be a shame if for some reason
there isn't a rematch of this fight. With
stinkers such as Dawson - Tarver II being
finalized, there is no reason this
shouldn't get done. I would love to see
HBO or Showtime pick this one up.
Angel Colon - Orlando, Florida
Best Fight of the Year! There has to be

Who wouldn't want to see this again?
Amazing, amazing fight. Put it in chicago

Great fight...some fights don't need
petition for a rematch...just have a major
station replay the first fight and the
masses will follow!
Ben Mcculloch - Sydney,
Go Cunningham! Heart balls and an great
attitude make you a fan favourite and why
we want to see the rematch.
WILSON SAMOT - Kissimmee, Florida
Great fight, lets give boxing what it

Rematch is needed!!!!!!!!!!!

Grzegorz Kouodziej - Katowice
Cunnigham WIN FIRST MATCH !!! STEVE you
are the BEST !!!
Roger Gray - Guelph Canada
There is no way Cunningham lost that
fight -he won almost every round ,and the
rounds he was knocked down in he was
winning ,so they should have been scored
as even rounds Another example of
ridiculous judging .....
Phil Rem - Somerset NJ
I was at the fight and they did boxing
proud. Let's see it again!!
David DeLeon - Dallas, Tx United
Boxing needs more fighters and fights
like this. Make it happen! The first was a
Christopher Marrero - Philadelphia,
It was a great fight, ppv worthy.
Omar Alvarez - Los Angeles, USA
A candidate for fight of the year and i
can't wait for the rematch. Please make
this happen. Fight should take place in
New Jersey again.
Luis M. Torres - El Paso, Tx,
gotta do it again!
Daxx Kahn - New York, USA
This is a fight that must be made, 2 of
the best big men in boxing, the HW
division is dead and fans have lost hope
in the upper tier of fighters over 168lbs,
We have a bout worthy of fight of the year
status in the cruiserweight division, the
first since Holyfield Vs Qawi in the
1980's and possibly the first worthy
trilogy since Holyfield Vs Bowe.
It would be a crime to not make this
happen, Once even twice may not be enough.
Sign the contract!!
Ray Simmons - Columbus Ohio ,.. U.S.
this fight was more entertaining than
many I've bought on PPV,.. can't wait to
see a rematch
John Bracken - Baltimore,USA
uss was the champ,he should have keep
John Ashwin - Chicago, IL USA
Adamek and Cunningham are the 2 best
fighters of the division and even though I
though Cunningham took a close decision,
the knockdowns by Adamek took a few points
away from Steve. Nonetheless, it was a
close fight that could've gone either way.
I like Adamek, but I gotta go for the
American Cunningham. I think he will be
better prepared and will correct his
mistakes in the rematch. I wanna see Steve
unify the division. The only thing he
doesn't have is one-punch KO power,
otherwise he's the complete package.
Jayson Sia - Philadelphia,PA,
Watching the Cunningham and Adamek
fight was remarkably a close one.Close to
being a draw in my opinion.Each threw
thousands of punches one after another.And
at the end,i was very shocked towards the
split decision and as well with the bunch
of other people i was watching back at
home with.I would love to see a rematch!
Cruz Cordero - Philadelphia, USA
It was a great fight that even the one
who lost (debatable)gained more fans.
Steve Cunningham simply needs to keep his
hands up, stay off the ropes and box and
he will reclaim his belt. The rematch
needs to take place FAST!
Arsen Karagoz - Toronto, Canada
Great fight...Deserves to be on HBO or
Showtime for the rematch.
Jason Alvarez - Brooklyn NY USA
Great fight i commend both fighters
& Steve deserves a rematch thanx for
the memory guys
Manny " Bumper " Howard -
It was a tremendous war of two
titans!!! A rematch is inevitable. We the
people want to be overjoyed with another
wonderful boxing match. God Bless everyone
and happy new year!!
Michele Kern - Franklinville,
Great fight! It would only be greater
to watch another fight between these
Antonio M. Bangalisan - Malabon
I like to see a REMATCH.
Timothy S. Donaldson - Elmer, NJ,
Whether you thought Cunningham won or
Adamek won, as a boxing fan, you would be
crazy not to want to see a rematch. The
fans deserve a rematch.
George Jimenez - Ridgefield Park, NJ
Great fight, I went to see it live and
enjoyed myself. Let's see this again.
Victoria Villa - Ridgefield Park, NJ
John DiSanto - Mantua, NJ, USA
It was a great fight and there isn't a
more natural rematch out there.
Gee E. Cullmer - Philadelphia ,PA,
STEVE SHOULD STILL BE CHAMP EVEN IN THE
ROUNDS HE WAS KNOCKED DOWN IN HE HAD WON
MORE THAN MOST OF THE ROUND YOU CAN'T GIVE
A MAN A TEN EIGHT ROUND WHEN HE WINS
NEARLY THE WHOLE ROUND THERE WAS ALOT OF
CHEERING FOR ADAMEK EVEN WITH STEVE NEAR
HOME IN JERSEY. STEVE EVEN HAD HOME TOWN
HALL OF FAME PROMOTER (RUSSELL P) ROOTING
FOR ADAMEK. TAKE A LOOK IN THE CROWD.

Orlando Quiros - Philadelphia, PA,
Steve deserves a rematch with Adamek.
It was such a great fight
James Kinney - Woodbridge, NJ
This was a great & exciting fight
and should be repeated.
Tom Horner - Chattanooga, TN
The fight between Adamek and Cunningham
was at the highest level of boxing. It has
suspense, brutality and beauty. I was so
excited that it was on free cable
television. This is a big "hooray" for the
Versus channel. Let's do it again.
Michael Nagloski - Kalisz Poland
Vasili Volkoff - Virginia, United
This would be a good rematch.
Cunningham did not get knocked out and
showed a lot of heart. Adamek showed he
wanted the championship, now he's the
World champion. Let's do it again!
Jeff Rogers - Taunton, Ma. USA
This fight and the new season of "The
Contender" are just what the Cruiserweight
division needed. What a great couple of
Stefan Kalloo - Queens, NY, USA
Great Fight. Put it in the same arena
Goobeef - Sydney Australia
Mike Corona - Hartford, CT USA
The first fight was way too close to
let judges decide. There needs to be a
rematch to decide the real king of the
cruiserweight division. Besides, there are
no bigger fights out there for either
Daniel Zavala - Buena Park, Ca.
Let's keep the Cruisers picking up
steam, and what a fight to make the big
men look good.
Mphumzi Sizani - Cape town SA
Please let these two warriors go at it
Shaun Brown - Kelso, Scotland
Cunningham and the fans deserve a
rematch. For once can the money men not
think of their pockets and think of the
fans. Or does Christmas really only come
once a year?
Gabriel Veras jr - Philadelphia PA
I felt it should have been a draw at
the least. uss came back strong and went
the 12th, not going back but foward. its
good 4 television, good 4 boxing! so come
on lets get it moving. steve is ranked #2
ademek at the 1spot, their 1st encounter
was a great 1. who else is deserving 4 a
crack at ademek? ...ademek beat
bell/mormeck is in another realm no where
2 b found. enzo lost 2 haye.... my point
exactly, no 1 but the #2 ranked man. Steve
USS Cunningham should be next!
Damien Hair - Houston, TX USA
A rematch is a good move, but a better
move would be for Adamek to fight
Macarenelli and Cunningingham to fight
Jean Mark-Mormeck on the same fight card.
If either wins or lose, it would stage a
great rematch fight which provides more
exposure for every fighter and weight
Christopher Michalski - Glenside Pa.
Easily the best fight Versus has ever
shown sofar.No reason for them to not have
another if HBO or Showtime doesn't snap it
up 1st.Good Job,both fighters,very close
all the way,great drama down the
stretch.No one would have been upset
paying for this one on PPV.I would
actually like a trilogy like
Ward-Gatti,with one in Poland and a rubber
match in Philly.Let's do it again!
Joe Caulfield - Minnesota, USA
Cunningham next undisputed (RING mag)
Veronda Majett - Philadelphia, PA
I completely agree with all and say
this was the fight of the year 2008.
Rematch is definitely needed.

have to do it again !

a great co-feature. Make it happen!

Peter Czymbor - Brockton, MA USA
I just watched the fight rerun on
Versus and I scored it 114-113 for
Cunningham...though there were a few
rounds that could have gone either way.
Since it was so close and full of
action, I'd hope a TV network would cough
up the dough and make it happen again.
John P. Merkel - Cranford, NJ,
I was there the first time, I'm dying
for the chance to see another.
