Tarver: Wladimir Klitschko is avoiding me

By Vitali Shaposhnikov: I assume that most of us have already heard the rumors that Antonio Tarver (29-6-0) claims he is the only fighter today who has all the tools needed to dethrone Wladimir Klitschko (56-3-0), despite the fact that his only victory in the heavyweight division came against Nagy Aguilera (16-6-0) via a 10 round U.D.

ďA year ago, Klitschko had mentioned that he wants to fight me, but since then never said a word about this. I have a feeling that he is avoiding me. Wladimir clearly understands that only I could beat him, and doesnít believe in himself. I have everything needed to beat him,Ē said Tarver in a recent interview. ( I wonder what those tools needed to beat Wladimir he is talking about. Is it Tarverís extensive experience in the heavyweight division?

Despite the fact that this is simply absurd in mine, and many boxing fansí opinion, Emanuel Steward thinks itís doable: ďWe donít have a big choice. Itís either Tarver or Arreola. I think that Tarver is a pretty good candidate. Also, Tarver is a good trash talker, and could promote this very well.Ē

I am pretty speechless about the fact that this is even being discussed. Not only will Wlad dominate and knock Tarver out, but this fight brings absolutely no mystery to the result. I may be wrong here, so am very interested in hearing what you guys have to say about this proposal.
