Clarence Richard Adams (born July 6, 1974 in Henderson, Kentucky) is a former boxer. He has won a world title in the Super Bantamweight weight division.

Professional career[edit]

Adams turned pro in 1990 and in 2000 defeated Néstor Garza for the WBA super bantamweight title by unanimous decision. In his first defense he beat Andres Fernandez by 6th-round TKO. The fight ended when the referee stopped the fight and the ringside physician, Armando Sanchez, determined that Fernandez could not continue due to cuts.

Adams defended the title one more time before vacating to fight Paulie Ayala. He lost the bout by split decision in 2001, and also lost a rematch in 2002. Adams retired in 2003 after drawing with journeyman Manuel Sepeda, but returned to boxing in 2006.

On June 12, 2009, Adams defeated veteran Alex "Ali" Baba in an 8th-round TKO.
