Adamek - Cunningham Scorecard

Finally got the chance to watch the Adamek-Cunningam fight today. So many people beforehand had asked me my score and if i could collect scores for the fight. In my last article i was able to collect 98 scores from the Press and the Fans. I would probably have got more but i was at work in the middle of a 12 hour shift. My results showed that the vast majority had Steve Cunningham winning the fight. Of the 98 scores, 85 scored for Cunningham, 9 for Adamek and 4 a draw.

Now that i have watched the fight, i am in that vast majority that thought Cunningham won the fight. My scorecard of 116-113 (7-4-1 in rounds) is below. I cannot see how Adamek was given the decision. The only thing that could have happened is the flurries at the end of most rounds by Adamek must have fooled the judges into scoring the round for him. I'm sorry but fighting and landing only in the last 30-20 seconds of the round doesn't win you the fight especially when Cunningham was landing his jab followed by numerous right hand throughout the fight. Adamek merely followed Cunningham around for too much of the fight landing nothing of note. The rounds that Adamek won, it was clear that the Pole upped his work rate and actually matched his lighter opponent. The opening round was the only round where i scored a 10-10. It was a quiet round with the only scoring punches landed by the Cunningham jab. Adamek did land a few hooks in the last 20 seconds of the round. This is what swayed me to score 10-10, it was a quiet round where one flurry could alter the scoring of the round.

I will be writing one final article in 2012. The 3 worst decisions of the year. The Cunningham-Adamek fight will not be there. It came in a close 4th.
