This week, Tomasz Adamek, in a letter written to Marian Muhammad, President, International Boxing Federation, formally vacated his IBF Crusierweight Title. Adamek expressed his regret in having to vacate the title and thanked the IBF for the opportunities he was given.

He stated, I am not leaving the IBF family. I will be fighting October 24 against Andrew Golota for the IBF International Heavyweight Title in Lodz, Poland. Further, when possible I hope to return to reclaim my IBF Title.

Adamek still holds the Ring Belt Cruiserweight Championship Title.
