Press Release: 18th December 2008

WWAR Breaks Out Over Cunningham-Adamek Rematch

A new website - www.WeWantARematch.com - was launched today to gather support from boxing fans worldwide in lobbying television networks, promoters Don King Productions and Main Events for a rematch of last weeks IBF cruiserweight world championship title fight between Steve 'USS' Cunningham and Tomasz 'Goral' Adamek.

The calls for a rematch are not out of sour grapes, anything but, as 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 Organisation light heavyweight champion, Tomasz 'Goral' Adamek, originally from Poland but now residing in Jersey City, NJ., the reason is quite simply the fight was one most exciting and intriguing boxing matches ever seen. The result, a split decision in favour of Tomasz Adamek, could have gone either way and it would have been fair and unarguable as many neutral observers scored it a draw or a single point victory with virtually a 50/50 split between Steve and Tomasz being the victor!

Message boards and forums around the world are still buzzing with comments praising the fight. Videos of the fight were posted on YouTube and combined received exceptional viewing figures in excess of 250,000 in the first day. Just 7 days later the two most watched videos are currently listed as having over 235,000 and 160,000 views, with two others showing 100,000+ viewing figures.

It isn't just the fans that claim it to be special and that it should be repeated - almost every media report on the bout claimed it to be a candidate for 'Fight Of The Year' or called for a rematch, and in many cases both.

The unusual step of creating the website calling for a rematch was taken because the fight was a mandatory defense by Steve and as such there was not a rematch clause in the contract. Any rematch could only happen if both the fighters management and promoters agree to holding one.

Tomasz and his management made it clear that they would only be interested in a rematch if there was "big money and big TV". Steve accepts that this is their prerogative but still has continued to ask for the right to try and regain his title.

The creators of www.wewantarematch.com hope that the website, which features video of the fight, photographs from pre-fight events and the fight night itself, exclusive articles written by well known journalists that support the cause as well as a petition and lobbying information, will generate enough supporters that Tomsaz's requirements for a rematch can be met.

Visit www.wewantarematch.com and pledge your support, it doesn't cost a cent, just a little of your time.
