The Barbershop- Sept. 6, 2011

Happy Tuesday, fans!
Welcome to this week’s edition of “The Barbershop,” a column designed to give you a forum to speak your mind about our question(s) of the week or any boxing-related issue that you would like to comment on. We welcome and appreciate your participation, so take a minute, scroll down and leave your comment below.

Now, on to today’s question:
Popular Polish heavyweight Tomasz Adamek started his career at light heavyweight and enjoyed a near-eight-year stretch there, winning a major belt along the way. After his run at 175, Adamek ventured to cruiserweight where he stayed for two years, grabbing another belt during his stay. In the grand tradition of smaller men traveling north to challenge for the biggest prize in boxing, this Saturday night, Adamek gets his shot at heavyweight greatness when he faces WBC heavyweight champ Vitali Klitschko. Roy Jones was successful against John Ruiz in 2003. Can Adamek do it in 2011? If so, how long can he hold on to the belt in the land of giants? Plus, if Adamek defeats Vitali, what chance does he have to unify the entire division at long last?
You pay the bills, fans, so what do you think?
Don’t forget to join the fun on Friday nights as I join Randy Gordon and Gerry Cooney on their “Friday Night at the Fights” satellite radio show on Sirius channel 94 and XM channel 208.
We’ll be discussing the “Barbershop” question of the week and whatever else is on your mind.
The show runs from 7 PM to 9 PM EST and you can call in and let us know what you think by dialing 1-866-522-2846.
We look forward to hearing from you!
