When Superpowers Collide

On December 11, 2008, it was a cold wet night in Newark, New Jersey, but things were getting ready to heat up inside the Prudential Center. On this night the first major boxing event in Newark in over 60 years was getting ready to take place. Steve "USS" Cunningham was ready to put his IBF cruiserweight title on the line against the formidable Tomasz Amadek. The arena was packed and the energy unreal as these two super powers were set to collide. The bell sounded for the first round and the crowed ignited with cheer and exhilaration for what they were about to see, 12 rounds of the most exiting boxing New Jersey had seen in years. When the smoke cleared a new champion was crowned, but not before these two modern day warriors gave every thing they had. Cunningham used his strategic planning to land pin point shots at his worthy opponent. While Amadek was showing he has a jaw of steal that was virtually impenetrable to the Navel officer's barrage of combinations. On the other side, Adamek was throwing bombs of his own. Three of Adamek's bombs connected and momentarily dropped the Champ, but this proud American soldier regrouped to finish the fight strong and in Championship style.

Now, here we stand getting ready to start the New Year. And what a year for boxing 2009 is going to be, but only one bout maybe missing Cunningham vs. Amadek II. Yes, Seems the newly crowned champ is looking toward other opponents instead of dealing with the one that he should face. Tomasz has been looking into possible match ups against BJ Flores, and Bernard Hopkins. He has even contemplated moving up to the heavyweight division. Truth is the only fight that makes sense in his future is a rematch between him and the man who he narrowly defeated for the IBF crown. Such a fight at the scene of the crime would not only bring a bigger crowed to the Prudential Center, but HBO and a slew of big name sponsors would follow.

Checkout the highlights. Come to your own decision. And if you feel the same way I do, come join us at www.wewantarematch.com get involved in bringing this huge fight to reality.
