Bears I had to chuckle at your statement:”Lyle dropped foreman multiple times making him faceplant. If lyle can do that I would say haye could hypothetically stop foreman.”……….did you forget that Haye took a battering from 40 year old Thompson & got dropped by Mormeck and Barrett………….If they could do that to Haye, hypothetically Foreman to render Haye comatose!

Meanwhile, as the losers keep arguing over a fight Vitali lost ten years ago(three years after he quit in the ring), Lennox is living the high life and enjoying his accomplishments. Nice…

Vitali Klitschko clearly outboxed Lewis and FORCED him into retirement at just 37-years-old. Bottom line. Enough said. Period.

We all know that Lewis definitely would’ve stuck around for at least another 5 years and beat journeyman & tomato cans for mega millions — if he would’ve had that option.

Bears,” statistically no one did to Lewis what Vitali did”. Thats great, but in reality no one did to Vitali what Lewis did and that is bust his face up real good and hit him like no one has hit him before (due to the fact that Vitali never faced real quality opposition before and thereafter) and tkoed him!

Ali has an underlying medical condition, another crass and “brain dead” comparison. 1. I never saw Ali crawling around the ring after being clipped by a journeyman like I saw Wlad do, or getting bounced up and down by a flatfoot like ‘Stationary’Sam ‘Plodder’ Peter. Purrity literally carried him around the ring 2. Wlad can carry on because the era is so poor. Ali had a prime hungry Holmes to contend with along with the onset of Parkinson’s disease. Wlad has guys who uppercut themselves in the face. Today’s prospects are so bad they are testing themselves with obese middle aged former middleweights.

Ali got punched so often he’s brain dead… At a youthful 37 Wladimir is still going strong. At a youthful 36 Ali couldn’t even keep 197-pound amateur, Leon Stinks, off of him. At least Stinks was better than Alfredo Evangelista. Stinks flattened Evangelista in no time—while Ali went 15 peaceful rounds with the pathetic excuse for a boxer.

Johnny Carson said…, “Folks, this breaking news, just off the wire…Muhammad Ali and Alfredo Evangelista have just been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize—for promoting non-violence in Boxing.” That was Carson’s hit joke of the night. When the audience finally stopped laughing Carson shook his head, stamped his feet, and started laughing again—and the audience LTFAO again. Non-violence in Boxing was a new concept — brought to us by Muhammad Ali.

At 37 Wladimir Klitschko is still improving his technical skills. He’ll probably be champion for another 2 or 3 years. Vitali Klitschko is retired at 41—so Wladimir is considered the best heavyweight alive.

At 38 Ali was out-punched about 1,000 to 2 by a 30-year-old Larry Holmes. During the buildup Ali promised to destroy Holmes… Another joke.

Gee Whiz Blue Horizon… Forget Frazier. Joe was 5’9″ X 205, very fat at that weight, and exposed by a green-assed Foreman who was 3 times as strong. All you needed to beat the wide open, defenseless, amateurish Foreman was a good jab, good strong mobile legs, decent heavyweight size, (6’3″X210) and superior boxing skills. Frazier had none of these attributes. David Haye has all of them in spades.

Sugar Ray Leonard, one of the greatest boxers ever, said Dereck Chisora has “a great jab” called him “a good boxer” and called Haye, “unbelievable.” Chisora weighs a tight 247 without being as fat as Foreman, and beat towering Robert Helenius by a consensus 10 rounds to 2. Haye took Chisora to school, won every minute of every round, and barely got hit with a single punch before flattening Chiroa with precision combinations to head and body that Ali never dreamed of throwing — because Ali didn’t even have a body attack. That’s how incomplete and inept Ali was. Ali got ripped with left hooks like a novice boxer because he pulled straight back from punches.

Haye is no walk-in punching bag one trick pony like Joe Frazier. Forget it. Frazier had nothing for a big powerful hard puncher because he was wide open. So was Ali. Ali even got hit by fat globules blobs like Chuck Wepner—who’s not even a tenth as good as Helenius. Ali was one of the worst defender ever and he’s paying for it today.

Ali was floored BAD by cooper. Who weighed 180 pounds. Team ali was so desperate they resorted to cheating. Them guys were all smal they were all slower. You watch foreman vs lyle even howard cosell at one point says “this fight is devoid of any skill” there standing flat footed just letting there hands go and dropping eachother multiple times. The fights on youtube. Foreman weighed like 220. You have to remember these guys were not getting by 250 pound bombs. They never experienced a klitschko bomb. But todays fighters have faced fighters every bit as faster and faster and more powerful than the 60s and 70s fighters. I think its obvious how boxing has progressed. Foreman said the klitschkos are better than he was. Maybe tooslick earnie and prince know better than foreman himself. Jim rome on rome is burning recently had wlad on the show where he rome said wlad would ko ali. So we see people by and large are not delusional like earnie, prince, and 2slick. Not even the guy directly involved in the situation foreman thinks he is better than the klitschkos. Its ok the earnies, princes, and 2slicks are dieing out. It becomes very difficult for nonsense to thrive

Perhaps in sports like track and field, where small changes in training and nutrition can shave a few miliseconds off of a time. But that will plateau eventually. It does not represent actual pyhsical evolution. Harry Wills, with modern training, would look bigger in a ring than David Haye. And boxing isn’t simply about athleticism, it is a craft. Besides guys who don’t fight, don’t train and have bad nutrition (ala the supposedly superior to Frazier Chisora) are the opposite of that.

Blue – There are less guys now, fighting less often and the best avoid each other (not a problem limited to today, granted). The Klitschkos themselves had extensive amateur careers and have fought hundreds of rounds – that is big part of what sets them apart. Hopefully changes to the amatuer game will help bring back some of the craft but these lazy heavyweight CONTENDERS who don’t fight regularly and in the case of Chisora, barely even bother to train correctly, cannot be seriously compared to a locked HOF and ATG like Frazier. It’s not worth ‘debating’ with these people. I suspect the majority of them are on a wind up anyway ;-)

So far Lewis and the Klit and maybe Bowe are the only big mens who possess skills ever, and the ones who could compete in any eras. But for those who said that bigger is better, it’s stupid comment e.g. : Helenius hardly beat 2 small old bums heavyweight in Sherman Williams and Sprott, and was behind on points agaisnt the shot Peter before the ko good deal !
Fury is big and tall, but lack of power with a suspect chin, and he’s not the next great thing in Heavyweight. Price already collapsed against an old veteran and
we’ll see what happen in the rematch. Dimitrenko, Wack, Ustinov are big punching bag with 0 skills and no heart, awfull to watch. Wilder only figt bums etc…

Blue Horizon – Comparisons between Frazier and Chisora are facile and show these people up entirely for what they are. Chisora is a crude club-fighter, he is wild, he is open, he lacks power, he has no amatuer pedigree, his fundementals are poor. And Frazier was a big puncher, this seems to have been forgotten with time. He had Ali down and Ali has one of the best HW chins in history. Frazier is NOT comparable to Chisora, he had a solid amatuer grounding, fought hundreds of rounds, won the Olympic Gold medal, beat HOF fighters and Ali for crhisakes. Chisora is a photocopy of a photocopy of a photocopy of an old newspaper clipping of Frazier, on a broken photocopier operated by a blind man. It’s laughable that people make that comparison – they can only be trolling as nobody could seriously be that retarded.

Lennox Lewis is just about the worst possible HW in history for Wlad. It is widely accepted that Vitali is the tougher, more resilient of the brothers and he failed to produce the goods againts the worst version of Lewis (with the possible eception of Rahman I, where Rahman managed the feat that proved too far for a prime Vitali). Wlad would try and clinch and he would get knocked out. I’m sorry but there is no way that Wlad would eat the uppercut that Vitali took from Lewis. Wlad would be outmuscled by Lewis, Lewis could also be very dirty at times. Wlad would fight cautious and Lewis would be all over him. Same goes for Foreman. Foreman of the Frazier fight would, again, bully Wlad on the inevitable Wlad instigated clinches and Wlad will get knocked out.
Granted Wlad is nothing like Frazier but take away Wlads physical advantages on the clinch, like these, two of the strongest HW’s ever would, whilst fighting back with huge uppercuts and dirty tactics on the inside and Wlad is in BIG trouble. I’m not going to point to Wlads losses as that is not the way to go about comparing greats (and I’m not disputing Wlad is ‘a’ great) but for me the Sam Peter fight is very important here. For me one of Wlads best performances, he was in against a known banger, a dangerous quantity, he was hit, he was hurt, he was down, he showed resilience and spirit and won the fight. A good performance from a prime, hungry and on his guard Wlad. A fight I would point to to corroborate his status as a great. BUT it was against Sam Peter, possibly the worst (if we exclude WBO) HW champ I have seen in my time. Peter is wilder than Foreman (I won’t even compare him on that score with Lewis, who was not wild except in his inception), he is easier to hit, slower, more ponderous, hits hard but not AS hard as either Lewis or Foreman. How anyone can watch that fight and then Watch Foreman and Lewis as their destructive bests and claim Wlad KTFORD1 any version of either, strikes me as blind fanboyish lunacy only as I cannot see it. Lewis and Foreman have too much dog for Wlad.

Chisora can’t break an egg, even little Frazier hits harder, and if he was still alive he could learn to Chisora how to boobing and weawing properly because Chisora has the same style but only 10% the skills Frazier had. Chisora is an easy target, he stop shots with his head, Foreman would decapited him faster than Haye.

blue, Davey Haye has every advantage over George Forman. Speed, power, defense, offense, legs, brain, boxing skills, it all plays in favor of Haye. Foreman has always been a defenseless slugger, no defense, no footwork, he ate everything that was flying at him. HAYE KNOCKS STUPID SLUGGERS LIKE CHISORO OR FORMAN OUT EASILY. THAT’S HIS COUNTERPUNCHER STYLE.

The Cobb claim is just laughable, cobb was a bum. Prime current Wlad destroys any version of Lewis. Both are great fighters but Wlad has more speed, more power, more experience, much better defense, better left hook, better one two combination, much lighter on his legs, more agile and fast overall. Wlad lands the missile first and Lewis falls flat like he already did against McCall and Rahman.

Tark, about Chuvalo by unstoppable I meant never been Koed.
And once again to dismish Foreman, as usual you refer the depressed version against Jimmy young rather than the killing machine against Frazier, that one who have beat Haye, who been floored by the midget Mormeck.
Wlad fought scared and too cautious against Haye whereas Foreman would engage by landing visious hooks and Uppercuts on Haye. Even Golota of 1996 would test Wlad, he was beautiful to watch : good jab, nice right, beautiful combinations, defense, he’s better than any opponents that wald fougt besides Haye maybe.
And the studip comment froml the idiot who said Wach would rule the 70 era,
Wach is nothing more than the new randall tex Cobb but slow as hell with less skills.
Any version of Lewis destroy wlad, lewis is more versatile and could restructure
a fight when he’s behind on points, wlad is a true professionnal and athletic but
never been tested since his defeat against Sanders.

how could lewis have even won any rounds? he was outland every round. giving a guy rounds for a couple good shots is weak. and one of those rounds lewis was givin the judges were in disagreement with. vitaly was smoking lewis in the boxgame and 66% of the fight he did it with one eye. thats the GOAT son

prime holyfield!!! was a featherfist any version of holyfield was a featherfist and somone who couldnt hold onto a title. someone who got smoked by micheal morrer of all people and bowe the only guy he could beat was holyfield. golata was smoking bowe and outboxing him. all kinds of people beat on holyfield. when was holy’s chin ever really tested? bowe dropped his A55. you can be certain a klitschKO would. in fact vitaly the k bro who doesnt hit as hard smoke herbie hide in 2 rounds knocking him out and stiff with a JAB SON!! it took bowe how many rounds to stop hide??? little hide???? now if that was holy it would be quicker work. plus the klitschKOs raised the compubox bar for heavyweights through the roof. lewis couldnt keep up with vitaly. vitaly clean sheeted lennox lewis. he OUTLANDED HIM EVERY ROUND. VITALY dominated range, ring generalship, compubox, agression. EVERY PHASE OF THE GAME. lennox could only land after the foul cut. your clearly biased against the klitschkos. your garbage son you dont know about heavyweight boxing to even talk

Just like you think his record is subjective I can say the same about the Klitchkos opponents. Yes Kewis won by a cut that Vitalis cut made made worse. But as for who was winning, I had it a draw when they stopped it. Vitali winning the first 3 and Lewis winning the next 3

What about heart? Ali and Frazier were in wars with each other and some of their opponents, yet wouldn’t quit no matter how bad it was. Those type of performances are one of the qualities that have made them legendary. As good of people as the Klits are, fans won’t even mention them in forty years. Most all will have even forgotten the bout when Vitali quit, but never forget Ali fighting on with a broken jaw, and Frazier fighting on near death. It’s just the history of the sport, nothing to do with skin color. I am a big Kessler, Froch and Golovkin fan, but don’t care for Ward, Broner or Mayflower, so does that make it a color thing? Idiots who use skin color as their reasoning behind who someone is are really pitiful.

Go and watch the videos, you’ll see. Nowadays, because of doping, training, and nutrition programs, the best heavies can go for 12 rounds. It’ s like saying “Jesse Owens would outrun Usain Bolt”.

Noway the Klitchkos are top 10 heavies. Top 20 sure, top 10 nope. There resume does not beat Lewis sorry. So Lewis stopped Vitali when he want even training for Vitali, took him on with 2 weeks notice and stopped him and you say he is scarred. That’s just dumb. Yeah so what he retired. He didn’t have it anymore. If you are not 100% into boxing then it’s time to retire. Lennox hasn’t even came back which means he is done. Vitali has retired and come back. Which ment he wasn’t ready to leave. But a lot of the fighters they’ve beat would not be able to compete in the era of Ali

Hey Ernie Enema Schnozzle…. Too bad they kicked you out of the neighborhood. You smell so bad, and are so damned ugly I don’t blame them.

The reason Young flooring Foreman is significant — if a light hitter like Young can knock Foreman down, a great puncher like Haye would knock George stiff — as fast as David did that other slow poke, Dereck Chisora — who outweighed Haye by 37 pounds. Actually I think Chisora is a little faster than George, because he beat the gigantic Robert Helenius with ease, and slipped many of Helenius’s ponderous jabs. Haye nailed Dereck flush in the face with every jab he threw.

There is no denying that Wlad and Vitali are great heavies. But top 10 na they are not, well not in my option. Everybody will have there own opinion, I don’t think they could of beat Lewis. Vitali already lost to Lewis. Yada yada about a rematch, Lewis beat Vitali when he wasn’t training for Johnson so that says something right there. I don’t think Wlad would of been able to handle Lewis either but that is just my opinion. As for trying to compare or do mythical match ups with older fighters, that is really impossible to do.

LMFAO!!! Unstoppable Chuvalo???? I guess Chuvalo’s fights against Foreman and Frazier—both of whom were very green—and stopped Chuvalo early in the 3rd and 4th rounds, don’t count??? … Chuvalo was stoppable by any great puncher, because he stopped a lot of punches with his face.

“Foreman who would have destroyed Haye in two” GTFOOH. Foreman couldn’t even hit feather punching Jimmy Young with a good punch. George couldn’t handle a quick jab. Weak little Jimmy knocked George on his ass. Young was 20-5 with losses to terrible fighters. Haye had only one early loss when he had 10 fights—to a crafty veteran with around 35 fights. Haye has a better combination of boxing and punching skills than anyone from the 1960’s or 1970’s. Only Holmes boxed better from that era. Haye slips and ducks punches much better than Ali did and punches one HELL of a lot harder than Ali did. Haye’s arms and torso make Ali look like a girl.

6’4” X 225 southpaw Corrie Sanders beat Wladimir—SO WHAT? How many southpaw punchers of Sanders’ size were around in the 1960’s and 70’s? NONE!!! Wladimir could punch very hard and box a little in those days—but he couldn’t clinch, defend well, or move well, and he didn’t have a stance. Wladimir couldn’t slip punches well circa 1996-2004. Ten years with Steward made Wladimir a master boxer. The Wladimir of the last 7 years has been a progressively greater heavyweight. WK is not a natural fighter like Vitali—so he had to learn everything from a master trainer like Steward.

unbiased dane, what has my nationality to do with who I like as a fighter? And I am neither American nor British! So, clearly a sign of running out of arguments as you have to bring up sht like this!

The key word here is quality and skill! You look at Ali, Tyson, Lewis, Holyfield, Bowe , they have very good skills and dont just rely on their size! The Klitschkos only rule because they are taller than all the others. Skillwise they are mediocre at best. And we have seen, when a skilled fighter faces them, they are in trouble. Vitali got beat by Lewis and Wlad was beaten by a fighters who are not in the same league as the above-mentioned. So if Sanders can annihilate Wlad, what would Tyson have done?
And btw, Bowe is not better than Holyfield. Bowe won the 3rd fight cause Holy had a health problem going into that fight.

No Tark, you watch the fight, I don’t need to. Kenny Norton was way past his prime when he lost to Cooney. In your typical douche-nozzle style, you take a bad showing from a particular fighter’s career, then match it up with one of your favorite’s better performances and claim you know something. That would be like taking a good stoppage by Gentleman Gerry and matching that performance against the Wlad that was repeatedly flattened by the South African part time boxer/full time golfer, late Corrie Sanders. You think the golfer did a number on him? Gerry would have killed the fool.

prince says, “What do you think the Ali of 1967 would have done to the same Holmes?” … Not a thing. Holmes was just too damned good for Ali. There were no big, tall, masterful boxing heavyweights in the 1960’s. Ali was the only big, tall heavyweight who could box at all. There were no Klitschko brothers, no Tyson Fury’s, No Kubrat Pulev’s, and no David Haye’s, or even Eddie Chambers.. There were a couple of decent boxing heavyweights in the 70’s and they whipped Ali’s behind.

You know the only reason Holmes didn’t fight Ali years earlier than he did??? Because Ali was more interested in fighting Leon Stinks.

This is pathetic. I saw my first Wlad fight in 2000. I was 10 yrs old. He has been my favorite fighter for the longest time. These arguments are ridiculous. Wlad has many great accomplishments and has been dominant. His title reign has been incredible. That being said ALI is the greatest HWT of all time. You can’t blame him for the fact that American HWTs were better back then and that Parts of the world didnt fight pro.

Head2Head in perfect prime wlad would be a tough fight for all great HWTs. His mastering of distance and controlling the pace of a fight are his best attributes on top of power. Wlad is one of 3 great super hwts. That being said would wlad be able to keep Tyson away from him early on. I dont know. Would Ali slip the jab all night and win on PTS I dont know.

Posted April 18, 2013 3:28 pm

Tark, a prime Tyson of 21 yrs old would have killed Wlad! Wlad panicks when put under pressure and Tyson was putting pressure on everybody in his prime, bobbing and weaving while coming forward and not giving him time to breathe.

Holy in his prime would have floored Wlad like he floored Bowe in their third fight, a fight he only lost cause he was sick!

Dont know if Bowe would have beaten either Klit but he would have given them more trouble than the guys they are fighting now!

Lewis had the momentum when they stopped the fight with Vitali and Klitschko was getting pummeled with left hooks and those eyecaching uppercuts. The judges had the fight 4 :2 for Klitschko but most people had it even after the 6th round.

Also, many Klitschko fans where surprised that Klitschko got hit so often. The explanation for that is simple. It was the first time he ever faced a quality opponent who had the size, reach, strength and skill

On one point I agree with you: Rigondeaux is probably the best amateur boxer ever, along with Mario Kindelan who was great as well.

Posted April 18, 2013 3:01 pm

I think Americans are doing pretty well… I particularly like the super tough Bryant Jennings… He would have clobbered the daylights out of the weak chinned Norton and itty bitty Leon Stinks.

Rigondeaux was the greatest amateur boxing in boxing history. I’ve been saying that for 10 years. 400 wins is nothing to sneeze at. Rigo has twice as many professional wins as Leon Stinks had when Stinks faced Ali.

Ali was past it just after the thrilla in manilla and was sick, and didn’t
train against Spinks and had hand problems just after the Young fight. However It’s true Ali didn’t age very well in the ring.
Tark, based on your statement, I guess a prime P4P Donaire lost against a neophyte too since Rigo had only 11 fight before the meeting ?

Ali wouldn’t have humbled Lewis or the heavyweights of today… Ali would have been hammered to death.

Wladimir is 37… When Ali was 36 he was humiliated by Leon Stinks, a 197-pound novice with 6 wins. When Ali was 31 he was beaten up by Ken Norton, an uncoordinated, weak chinned, 210lb heavyweight. Norton was a 10-1 underdog because he was previously knocked flat by a 188-pound novice with 12 wins. Ali was badly out-landed in both fights, and took serious punishment.

Wladimir has only been behind on points in one fight — against 6’4″X225lb southpaw puncher, Corrie Sanders. Ali was behind on points numerous times because he didn’t defend very well.

The only big heavyweight Ali ever faced who was a great boxer — who boxed anywhere near as well as the Klitschko’s, was Larry Holmes. Ali landed 2 punches and took about 1,000.

WK says.., “Although I just turned 37, I feel much better than at the age of 27.” When you have 10 additional years to perfect your craft under the tutelage of one of the greatest trainers ever—a man who had a boxing knowledge base of over 60 years to draw on when he passed away last year—you should feel good. After 25 world title fights you’ve pretty much reached your technical zenith. However Francesco Pianeta, although undefeated, hasn’t beaten a contender, or beaten anyone who most boxing fans ever heard of.

Kubrat Pulev is undefeated, a very dangerous puncher, and knocked out Alexander Dimitrenko (32-1) and Alexander Ustinov (27-0), two towering, hulking heavyweights boxing fans have actually heard of. What’s wrong with fighting Pulev? It promises to be a very interesting contest—and I’m sure this fight will only be mildly interesting, like your last one.

Read Mark Silver’s ARC of Boxing. It talks about then vs now. I like it. I don’t agree with all of it but it is informative about the skills of the old fighters. Manny Steward was interviewed in it as well as other well known boxing insiders

prince: what are you moaning for ? Haye hasnt been given a titleshot, so he have to earn it, that means more fights for your boxer, hopefully against top ranked fighters, and then he will get his titlefight against Wlad. I dont see the problem.

Killing Moon; why is it you think that boxers apart from eny other athletes doesnt improve during time.
When i look at past fighters i see a lot of flaws, that the very best fighters of today would take advantage of. And you have a Foreman saying that the Klitschko´s was better than he ever was.

Another great defense by the boring Klitschkos. Who is Pianeta? These guys are just ridiculous, instead of giving Haye a rematch, who still has the best chance (despite a disappointing performance two yrs ago), they defend their title against people like Mormeck, Charr, Sosnowski, Thompson and now Pianeta. The Klitschkos (especially Wlad) are just jokes!

Hidalgo said” Francesco Planeta. Talk about an unknown. He’s not listed on Boxrec.com, he’s not on wikipedia.com. He’s not a top 10 rated heavyweight or top ten rated P4P”. Tsk tsk, So eager to criticize Wlad for enything possible. No wonder you cant find a boxer named Planeta on boxrec. his name is Pianeta you fool, and his worldranking is #14.

Whether or not the ones from the past would have beat K-bros …Who knows…But easy?

Get some knowledge….Nobody beats these two easy in their prime.

Hidalgo: What are you talking about Pianeta is rated 14 HW on boxrec…Has a wiki-page etc….Maybe you and the internet isn’t the best of friends.

Actually Ali won the real heavyweight championship of the world from another fighter in Liston. Neither Klitchko actually beat the reigning world champ. So your statement is wrong.

Wlad Klitschko is the reigning heavyweight champion of the world. But he is standing on top of a very tiny mountain. When he looks around all he sees now are these giant mostly overweight freaks with feeble boxing skills. Lennox Lewis in his prime would’ve destroyed Wlad without breaking a sweat, and Muhammad Ali in his prime would’ve humbled Lewis over 15 rounds. Time passes. Everyone forgets.

Squared-Circle (a.k.a. LionKing)

Ali is the most overrated fighter in boxing history. Hands down, bar none.
Just because he called himself “The Grestest” every time he opened his mouth, doesn’t mean that he truly was. Ali was a feather-fisted bicyclist, who took way too many shots, and had an average defense. Little 5’10” cruiser weight Joe Frazier beat the living hell outta him twice, and many boxing pundits agree that Joe would’ve have won their 3rd fight if his corner wouldn’t have betrayed him and threw in the towel before the 15th round.
Go back and listen to Ali and his corner after the 14th, and you’ll see that there’s no way possible he would’ve answered the bell for the final round. He went to hospital and pissed blood for weeks after that beating. 56-37-5 is a really good record, but not the mark of the so-called GOAT. And out of 37 knockouts, ONLY 12 of those were real KOs — the rest were TKOs.
Again, he was lacking power — not a trait of the real GOAT. But “The Louisville Lip” may very well be the greatest trash-talker of all time. We’ll all give him credit for that “skill.”

Francesco Planeta. Talk about an unknown. He’s not listed on Boxrec.com, he’s not on wikipedia.com. He’s not a top 10 rated heavyweight or top ten rated P4P. Oh what a choice for a great fighter like Wlad Klitschko to fight. OMG, the challenge! :)

JT, KlichKOs do not worship nobody especially Ali, they just respect the old champions and btw both Wladimir and Vitaliy said many times that their only boxing hero is Max Schmelling, primarily cause of his achievements outside the ring during the Hitler reigning. that’s it. and the fact is it was an American championship, no matter for what reason. American patriots tend to discredit KlichKOs dominance although in fact they are real WORLD CHAMPIONS, only because they are from eastern Europe. The fact is KlichKO brothers are more worthy champions than Ali, Schmelling, Tyson or Lewis. I definitely respect KlichKOs more than Ali, Tyson or Lewis.

and for ernie, your just a cheap ho, hired troll

It’s Me, Ernie

It’s obvious your weak attempts to impersonate me are silly. I actually write using the English language. I just stated yesterday that the Klits are very respectable people, just aren’t the greatest fighters of all time. They are huge, tremendous athletes who reign in a very weak era of competition. Their styles are boring for the most part, sorta like you and your life.

Even the KBROs worship ALI and say hes the greatest. He also fought his fair share of Europeans and a few South Americans. Yes Wlad has fought more ppl from differ countries but back then US fighters were better. You should be happy. US fighters have declined and the flood gate of the Soviet Union spilled open and a bunch of hungry technically skilled fighters came out. HARRY be real, the KBROS are great but you cant discredit the title held before them because you are disrespecting the title they hold now.

guess you can’t think. Clay was a US champion at best. WORLD WASN’T INVOLVED IN THAT COMPETITION.

no he hasn’t. sorry to burst your bubble, but Clay was just a local US champion cause then we didn’t have a WORLDWIDE COMPETITION. It was a US CHAMPIONSHIP. Plus Clay in fact was just a fat lightheavyweight.

I hate to burst your bubble but Ali has fought in more different countries than Wlad. Obviously Ali fought primarily in the US against US comp but to say USA champ is pretty ridiculous. As a fan it is nice to see somebody step up to the plate to take on Wlad

WLAD IS THE BEST/ STRONGEST REAL HEAVYWEIGHT OF ALL TIME. GENUINE WORLD CHAMPION.

in fact nobody knows mayvazer or packiao in both Europes besides hardcore boxing fans. And this is a BIGGEST CONTINENT ON PLANET EARTH.

Not that happy with pianeta being the next opponent but Wlad is simply brilliant. The perfect example of a tall athletic power boxer. Amazing jab, devastating cross, sneaky and powerful hook. A master of maintaining distance and an athletic freak. Way too fast on his feet and with his hands for a man his size. I would just like to see him fight more guys his own size or taller who are good/proven. Oh well at least pianeta is 6’5. Better than the mormeck fight.

Erm, Wlad and Vit have taken I mean…

A poor choice of “keep me busy” opponent but also interesting. Wlad particulary seem to be obsessed bringing the HW boxing out of USA and popularizing it worldwide. To bring interest worldwide and other countries to start training their own HWs and give the World Champion titles a real meaning, not just “North-America” title as it has been.

Wlad particulary taken not only mandatories but also voluntary challangers from so many different countries: Ibragimov (Russia), Chagaev (Uzbekistan), Wach (Poland), Peter (Nigeria), Haye (UK), Mormeck (France), Charr (Syria) now Pianeta (Italy) with only mostly US mandatories (Thompson, Chambers) since there’s not much mandatories from US right now (Arreola, Wilder etc are still a couple of fights away from mandatory title shot).

I guess they’re trying to take the HW scene into new worldwide levels and pretty sure it will change in the future as well – look how much fighters come out of “middle of nowhere” developing countries on traditional boxing map (US, Mexico, UK, Cuba) these days – Eastern Europe, China, Phillipines, Indonesia, etc. One good example is that Wlad is way more known household name here in Europe than Mayweather for example. While in the US it’s vice-versa.
