2005-10-15 Tomasz Adamek w co 6 Thomas Ulrich, Multipurpose Hall, Dusseldorf, Germany - WBC. Referee: Ian John-Lewis. Setting off at a fast pace the challenger was always in the fight right up until the sixth round. Ulrich (174¾) certainly made Adamek (174¾) work hard even though he was cut over the left eye as early as the second round. With both men throwing quality punches from both hands the fight was exciting as Ulrich continually came forward before tiring towards the end of the fifth. Picking it up in the sixth Adamek began to work on Ulrich’s damaged eye, and after slipping inside an overarm right he smashed in a right-hand counter of his own that landed flush on the jaw. Crashing to the floor, Ulrich was counted out at 1.57 of the session.
