Adamek and Feijao Win Big

Are the Klitschko's in Adamek's future?
Former light-heavyweight and cruiserweight champion Tomasz Adamek won yet again in New Jersey against former heavyweight title challenger Michael Grant. So now the question all boxing fans want to know: Are the Klitschko's in Adamek's future?

While Adamek should get all the credit in the world for his huge leap in weight and for fighting like a champion there is one fighter Adamek should fight to test his box office appeal. A European showdown against David Haye, a fighter more his size and speed. Let's face it, if either Klitschko was hurts Adadmek the way Grant did, they would not let him off the hook. Yes, Grant is big and strong, but his punch output is not as fluid as either Klitschko (Wladimir's a bit smoother than Vitali) which is why he lost the unanimous decision.

Either way, when Adamek fights, fans would be foolish not to tune in. He's what the heavyweight division needs until a dominant heavyweight appears.

Strikeforce's New Middleweight King

Strikeforce, meet your new middlleweight ruler ... for now.
Rafael "Feijao" Calvacante successfully took the middleweight title from cocky, soon-to-be-ex champ, Mohammed "King Mo" Lawal via 3rd-round TKO. "Feijao" never showed any fear in striking with Lawal and was never dominated on the ground. The end came when he landed a knee to Lawal's jaw, who was digging crippling hooks to the body, and then rained elbows on a spent and hurt Lawal.
 
Next up could be a possible rematch with Lawal or a match with ratings-friendly Robbie Lawler.
