Sep 10. Wroclaw, POL, Miejski Stadium, est 40 000, K 2
Vitali Klitschko, 110,2, Ukr TKO 10 Tomasz Adamek, 98,0, Pol/US
Klitschko retained the WBC heavyweight title with a one sided tenth round stoppage of the capable but too small Adamek, who tried lateral movement and quick counters. Nothing worked though as the much bigger champ cut the ring off and found the range with a clubbing jab and a heavy right. Adamek almost floored in the second with only the ropes holding him up and it got worse in the sixth and this time the ref counted.
