Welcome to WeWantARematch.Com

On Thursday, December 11th 2008 a magnificent boxing match took place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, between the then reigning International Boxing Federation cruiserweight champion, Steve 'USS' Cunningham, from Philadelphia, PA. and former World Boxing Council light heavyweight champion, Tomasz 'Goral' Adamek, originally from Poland but now residing in Jersey City, NJ.

The atmosphere was electric when Steve and Tomasz entered the arena and what followed was one of the most exciting and intriguing boxing matches I and many of those watching had ever seen, This is not just my opinion as almost every media report on the bout claimed it to either be a candidate for 'Fight Of The Year' or called for a rematch, and in many cases both.

What made this event so special isn't that this was actually a properly matched event between the number one and two rated fighters in their weight class, but because of the two combatants commitment, and approach to this event both prior to fight night and in the ring itself.

Right away at the very first press conference to announce that Steve 'USS' Cunningham was going to defend his International Boxing Federation World Cruiserweight Title against Tomasz 'Goral' Adamek it was clear that this was going to be a very different fight to most these days. For a start both protagonists are deeply religious family men and as such there was no brash 'in your face' slagging matches so often seen these days, each man showed total respect for his opponent.

Throughout the promotion for the event both men behaved impeccably, neither uttering a bad word about the other. Their behaviour made me wonder if this is how gentlemen duelers behaved all those centuries ago.

By fight night it seemed hard to think that either man would actually try and hit the other. Boy was that misleading. As soon as the bell rang for round 1 world war three broke out. What followed was twelve rounds of pugilistic heaven, or should that be hell, as both Steve and Tomasz threw power punch after power punch. Now don't get me wrong, this wasn't a slug fest this was pure art at the highest level. If you haven't seen the fight go to the video page and watch it now, I'm sure you will agree that this was indeed a very special fight.

The purpose of this website is to inform people of this magnificent event that took place on 11th December 2008 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. It was an experience that should be shared, one that everyone should see and one that should be repeated. We, as do many others, feel Cunningham vs. Adamek II would be even better than the first.

Please take the time to check out all the sections that make up this website and afterwards should you agree with us that we deserve to see a rematch, join the campaign and act on the strategies supplied in the Lobby Info section and let the television networks and the promoters, Don King Productions and Main Events, know that you want to see Cunningham vs. Adamek II. and/or add your name to our on-line petition.

Come back often as the website is very new and there will be further unique content, including articles and features from well known boxing journalists, photographs and video added regularly as well as a question and answer sessions on the message board from Steve 'USS' Cunningham and, hopefully, also Tomasz 'Goral' Adamek.
