Tomasz Adamek received his bonus on Saturday for beating Steve Cunningham in December: THE RING cruiserweight championship belt.

Nigel Collins, editor of THE RING magazine, presented a beaming Adamek with the belt at Breadman Cafe in North Bergen, N.J.

Adamek (36-1, 24 KOs) defeated Cunningham by a split decision in an action-packed fight on Dec. 11 in Newark, N.J., to claim the vacant world championship.

He is the first Pole to win a RING belt.



“I'm happy and it's a great honor ro be named RING champion,” Adamek said. “I'm also happy to be the first Polish fighter to ever get THE RING belt. This is something that's very important to me, and be included with all the great fighters who got this belt.”

Adamek is scheduled to fight Johnathon Banks (20-0, 14 KOs) on Feb. 27 in Newark.
