You can tape as deep and detailed of a look into heavyweight boxing as you like. Starting and stopping at who wins and looses is shallow. When you do that miss out on a great deal. Examples of this are vitaly vs lennox, helenius vs chisora, lennox vs the guy he knocked out with his holding and hitting. Lennoxs holding and hitting in his first title bout it was a wbc title bout. There is a great deal in boxing u miss out on when u start and stop at official wins and losses. Even tonight in alvarado vs rios u had hbo analysts saying “the judges get it right this time”. The integrity of boxing from judging to officiating is garbage. For example there were two cuts on alvarado. How those cuts happened should be one of the jobs of an additional ringside ref watching the best angles of the fights close up and mic’ed up to the ref in the ring as cuts can impact fights so much they get stopped. Cuts can be caused by foul, accidental head butt, and punches many things. And boxing needs to make every effort to ensure the right calls. Its a sport is it not? Boxing is less of a sport and more of a crooked business it seems. I’m into the sport not the crooked business. It needs cleaned up and it needs integrity and the wbc is leading theway. Starting to do what I just said.

The record indicates vitaly klitschKO retired lennox lewis by way of official loss. The record indicates lewis was scared of a vitaly rematch as I point out below. Everyone calls lennox lucky in a narrow escape in a fight he was getting outboxed and loosing. NARROW ESCAPE. That’s what vivek said. Lucky, loosing, getting outboxed, narrow escape

Bears can write the Illiad, the Odessey and War and Peace, the story still ends with Lewis size 15 shoe on Vitalis chest game over… You cannot become the GOAT by winning 4 rounds such metrics are reserved for spirited journeymen not guys who are supposed to be something special…. Let the record reflect Lewis TKO 6 rounds over Vitali Klitschko!!

2-6 years ago, this would have been Vitali would be a one-sided slaughter akin to a Rotweiller against a cat in a 4 by 4 octagon. Now, Diver pot-shots and retreats his way to avictory ala the Valuev fight ( which most observers felt he lost ironically).

Lennox was also outscored/outlanded in every round. nobody had ever done this to lennox in the boxgame just imposed there own style like that. lennox landed just 3 shots of note which were good uppercuts but what was more amazing is that vitaly was unphased and it brought no lull in vitalys action. vitaly was immediately throwing punches following lennox’s shots. those uppercuts were close on the inside because vitaly dominated the range and lennox couldnt really do ANYTHING from any range. lennox came in averaging 31 jabs a round against his opponents (heavyweight best until the klitschKOs hit the scene) in the vitaly vs lennox bout lennox was only credited with 51 total. vitaly turned lennox’s game upside down essentially. every way you look at the rounds boxed in vitaly vs lennox. it was the vitaly klitschKO show. thats why the ringside announcers said vitaly won the event and they thought vitaly was on the verge of winning. thats why the crowd boo’ed lennox and cheered vitaly. and that why the standing champ lennox got retired by vitaly by way of official loss to a CHORUS OF BOO’S. just an amazing part of boxing history

after my post below you can see. vitaly lost to lennox as much as derek chisora lost to helenius. vitaly retired a standing a champ by way of “official” loss. lennox showed he didnt his performance was good at all. obviously lennox knew he had to use his holding and hitting he used HIS WHOLE CARRER. its funny you watch lennox career (on youtube). lennox literally used this foul from his first title fight to his last one. joe cortez yells at him and threatens him in his very first title bout. lennox actually knocked people out with and tua’s camp is famous for calling it out before the fight saying they wanted a ref who would enforce the rules in the ring before they would fight lennox. just type lennox vs tua and cheating into google. not a lot of people know this about lennox because not a lot of people watch tape or really know a great deal about heavy boxing. like sredmond talks out of his A55. lennox looked like crap in the boxgame against vitaly. he laced vitaly with a dirty age old boxing foul thats been around for 100 years and this shmuck redmond lauds lennox for it! LOL! what a chump. the proof is in what lennox did following the vitaly bout. GOT RETIRED WHEN HE COULDNT FACE A NON VITALY KLITSCHKO OPPONENT. when the wbc said they were gonna STRIP HIS A55. so you people out in east side should do some FACT CHECKING

Vitaly is ducking Haye. It’s not true or it’s not full info about Vitaly’s offer to Haye in September. Prime Vitaly would win against Haye, but this time Vitaly has no chance, and he knows about it. I’d love to watch Povetkin against Haye. It would be fun.

Are Vitali slower than Valuev, and is his punches also weaker ? Apart from throwing himself to the canvas all the time Haye fought the same way against Valuev as he did against Wlad.

Posted March 28, 2013 1:06 pm

Red78 : hold on did you see Hayes fight against Wladimir ? Didnt you see haye land one big haymaker ? It had no affect on Wlad at all. Now Vitali has one of boxing historys best chins, so why should we think that Haye are going to flattend Vitali ? Sure Haye has good punching power, but it takes more than one punch to ko Vitali, and Hayes Stamina and chin isnt all that great. And why should we believe Haye would fight different from when he fought Wlad and Valuev ?

Tyson, Lewis could NOT have been ducking Vitali because he gave Klitschko a PRIME opportunity to win his belts… Vitalis FAILURE to capitalize and his subsequent quest to build his legacy off of winning 4 rounds and sacrificing his face at the altar against an ATG are actually Vitalis problem… If you want to make and apples to apples comparison between Vitali and Lewis when did Vitali EVER fight David Haye?? Vitali has NOT been HALF the Champion Lewis was and thats validated by the fractional claim that the elder Klit has on the HW title…. Wlad has multiple belts, Lewis was undisputed, Vitali nothing more than the WBC beltholder… Even Bowe, Holyfield and Tyson carried more belts to the ring that Vitali…. Just stating hard facts man, its starting to look like little Haye is a fight Vitali and his fans are nervous about…. Lewis took on a Behemoth of a man on short notice, his balls cannot be questioned….

Posted March 28, 2013 10:56 am 


Red78

I do not know if Vitali is ducking Haye or not, but: 1) I clearly remember Vitali`s team saying that Vitali will face the winner of Haye v Chisora. 2) Vitali made no mention of the offer he made to Haye. In boxing a really bad offer is just another way of saying that you do not want to fight someone. 3) Style-wise Haye is all wrong for Vitali. Haye is one of the hardest pound-for-pound punchers in the sport, even a fighter as durable as Vitali would not be able to take too many hayemakers. Haye is also very quick, Vitali is slowing down, and he never was as slick and fast as his younger brother. 4) Vitali is nearing the end of his career both physically and mentally. Physically he did not look happy near the end of his fight with Derek Chisora, mentally he is looking at entering politics and keeping his legacy intact. Fighting David Haye is a very risky strategy, and if he were to lose, it might damage his legacy. 5) This is a point maybe nobody has considered. Vitali`s younger brother, Wladimir, has already beaten Haye. If Haye were to beat Vitali, his younger brother Wlad would always have one up on him. That is a hard pill for a big brother to swallow. Vitali`s loss against Byrd, that Wlad avenged, did seem like just an unfortunate shoulder injury. A more conclusive loss against Haye would be much harder to swallow. I certainly agree that Haye has not earned another shot at the title. However, Haye versus Vitali is a very competitive 50/50 fight, it would be very hard to call a winner in this fight. Style-wise it would also be an interesting fight. I want to see competitive heavyweight fights, not another obscure European with a padded record being brought in to be slaughtered by a Klitschko, please, no more!

He was an OLD ass Criuiser who had been inactive for a couple years and never looked better than CRAP at HW….. Arreola again? Who did he beat in between Vitali knocking him out??

Posted March 28, 2013 10:02 am

Tyson – Question: Who did Charr (or over-the-hill Briggs for that matter) fight to deserve a crack at Vitali? As I said in my earlier post, if Haye would have looked bad against Chisora, the fight with Vitali would be a done deal. Fact is Haye looked good… really good! Due to the clash of styles… Wlads reluctance to engage, and Haye being a counter-puncher… if they fought 10 times, 8 of them would be stinkers. Vitali on the other hand has always been more willing to “fight”, and thus would pose a serious danger of getting counter-punched by Haye. Say what you want about him, but the reality is that Haye brings excitement whenever he fights (bar the Wlad fight and Valuev fight… in which he had Valuev doing the “crazy-leg” in the 12th round by the way). Again, if Vitali chooses to retire, so be it.

He might fight Arreola who is the #1 champ should Chris defeat #2 Stiverne.
I guess the wbc stills likes a champ to fight the #1 contender from time to time. Arreloa has been inactive and shouldn’t be #1 but then again so has Haye. So Haye takes 2 fights and wins it’ll be a year from now that he takes on Vitali(If he’s still around). I’d rather see Arreola fight Vlad next time really seeing how he already tried Vit. but that’s the rankings. Haye is #1 wba though and Povetkin should be required to fight him.

I gotta say it Vitali is starting to sound like he is ducking David Haye, I have had myriad critiques of the Klits before but “ducking” was not one of them… There is literally NOT another high profile fighter at HW who generates as much buzz or brings a BIGGER paycheck….The idea that he is discussing a possible fight with Arreola in any capacity is baffling… He already beat up Arreola who has NOT shown the ability to get wins over solidly ranked fighters…Haye is easily the most logical name opponent for him to fight…

Wlad didn’t do poorly against haye. He dominated in a fight where his opponent haye kept falling to the canvas fishing for fouls and a DQ win or running away and not engaging. Its ALL ON HAYE AS TO WHY IT SUCKED. Non of that was on wlad so I have to ask what fight were u watching? How can u give someone who won’t fight a pizza face? And to these people comparin bowe and lennox. Lennox and bowe were very different. They had never showed signs of declinein the boxing ring and neither was 42. Vitaly is looking old. He looked hurt in both bouts. We know against chisora he had use of one arm and dan raphael pointed the injury out immediately. Against char it looked like vitay couldn’t pivot he had to step. If vitaly was 37 like lennox then haye would be getting sam pter or shannon briggs style beat downs. As it stands now. Vitaly can see what his health will allow and if it will permit fight haye.

Bears, we all agree that Haye sucked vs Wlad but in reality so did Wlad, if he had dominated and given him the ‘pizza face’ he said he was going to then there is absolutlely no point in them fighting again or even fighting Vitali. I can guarantee that the contract Vitali sent to Haye would have had so many clauses that he would have been his slave for many fights to come. I understand that Haye has to earn a shot but Vitali’s burning desire to KO Hayte seems to have gione, maybe just maybe he knows he is slowing down and would struggle against Haye’s speed. I for one hope that if Haye does beat Povetkin or any of the top contenders and becomes a mandatory the brothers do not give up the belt as it would definately hurt their legacy in the way Bowe refusing tp face Lewis did.

KOrnerman – I fully agree with you. This could be Vitali’s biggest payday by far. If Haye would have looked bad against Chisora, this fight would have been made yesterday. The reality is, Haye destroyed a guy who gave Vitali fits. If Vitali chooses to retire that’s his choice (he has earned it). If he fights another Charr then I think people will seriously question whether he is now ducking Haye. Just my opinion.

Haye has screwed this up by waiting too damn long. If he’d kept fighting and not taken an inordinate break then he could be a mandatory now and call Vitali out properly. If it was a matter of fight Haye or lose a belt then we would really be able to see just how much he wants the fight. In my opinion Vitali would be insane to fight Haye at this stage of his career. He’s incredibly intelligent, wise and has other interests outside of boxing. He will likely be one of the few successful retirement stories. Why you would want to risk your legacy against Haye. There’s a very real possibility Vitali could lose this fight and people wont give him much credit if he wins it. I wouldn’t advise Vitali to fight Haye now. A loss is too costly

Hayedoesnt deserve unearned paydays because when he fights a klitschko he is absolutely disgraceful and the guy has failed to make how many klitschko fights? 100? Yeah it seems like haye has fell through countless times and now he demands a klitschko fight before retirement? Gtfo. That’s one guy u make earn it. If haye came and fought vitaly like he did wlad it would be shame on the klitschkos. The last thing they want is haye making their fans mad like haye did germany. Haye was the efinition of suck. Flopping onto the canvas every 30 seconds. Giving chisora his third loss or fourth loss in a row in no way shape or form qualifies. U fight into contention at this point if your haye. You owe the fans and boxing if your david haye. And now haye isdoing what the klitschkos have forced him to do and fight. The klitschkos called hayes retirement bluff and WON! Haye got dominated in andout of the ring son

If Vitali fights on, Vitali-Haye is the best fight that can be made imo. People are correct when they say Haye hasn’t earned a Vitali bout but who has a better chance than Haye?

Haye’s name would improve Vitali’s resume more than any other current name imo.

I think Vitali wins a UD if the fight takes place, but, i just don’t think Vitali has any motivation left for boxing and it wouldn’t be the easiest of fights considering he’s now a pensioner.

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

Haye already proved that he doesn’t belong in the ring with a Klitschko. His dismal performance vs. Wlad should have been a national embarrassment to the entire UK. Vitali already offered Haye a couple different fights in the past and he refused both times. No one ever said it was a permanent, open invitation. Enough said… let’s move on.

Hate is not the best contender at heavyweight. That is crap. Yeah he may be the best taller but talking only gets you so far. He barked and barked before Wlad and then after the fight he cried about his Pinky Toe. Stay retired Haye

no but I bet someone who has won 10 from 10 that nobody has heard of will intrest you as usual. SHOCK!!!

Vitali wont fight Haye, he wont fight Pulev, he wont fight Fury hell he wont even go near David Price. Vitali wants to fight Charr again or maybe Sosnowski again or fatty Solis.

Boxtradamus, I see your point. However, you fail to comment on the fact that Huye was offered to fight Vitali last September (unless you do not believe, for some reason, Vitali’s words). It looks like Huye is just waiting for Vitali to get older. He also does not seem to be very exited about getting a second fight with Wlad (this is to address “facing the BEST” portion of your comment).

If Haye versus Vitali does not interest you, then you don`t know much about boxing. Haye would certainly take his chances against the slower-older brother. Vitali would certainly feel like his consistent power could gradually wear away his smaller opponent. This fight would most likely not reach the scorecards.

CORRECTION. ..”Contender in the World. .”

Boxtradamus

When facing the BEST is no longer interesting to you then it’s time to RETIRE. Haye is the BEST HW Cintender in the World. Either face him or vacate

What this atricle lays out is a perfect fight schedule for heavy with top contenders fighting to earn a shot at a klitschKO. Fury takes on cunningham and pulev, arreolavs stiverne winner facing haye. Oh yeah. Not letting hae talk himself into a titleshot has worked well for everyone

Something is wrong here. The problem is, outside of Haye, I cannot think of any heavyweights, barring an in shape Solis, who would pose much of a threat to Vitali. I think Vitali is starting to feel like Lennox Lewis did in 2003. Make no mistakes here, Haye is a very dangerous opponent for Vitali, who is nowhere near as fast and fluid as his younger brother. Haye`s speed, and power, could cause very big problems for Vitali. My guess is that Vitali wants out of boxing with a good legacy, and into politics. There is nothing wrong with avoiding a very dangerous younger opponent when you are clearly past your prime. As I said, Vitali is starting to feel like Lennox Lewis did in 2003.

Do not care

as vitali said, he offered, haye refused, end of story.

Apologies
That should be Vitalis eye twitching and pupils dilating

You see , though?
I rest my case

Posted March 28, 2013 12:02 am 


DMX

Clearly it is the most interesting Heavyweight fight out there
Is it deserved ?
Probably not, but to breath some life into an dying division it should happen

Either Klitschko would knock the bejesus out of Tyson Fury
It would be embarrassing ,
he is the most ungainly uncoordinated poorly trained big man since Tye Fields

Besides the build up would be brilliant
Hayemaker would most definetly push the right buttons to get Vlads pupils dilating and left eye twitching

Vitali is completely correct. Who cares about Haye. He definitely does not come close to earning a shot. All he can do is talk. He did all that talking agains Wlad and then blamed his small toe. Terribly Weak

My dearest Vittles–it ain’t interesting to me either. And it shouldn’t be interesting to anyone with half a brain.

Haye does not deserve a shot at Vitali. Vitali must fight the Arreola-Stiverne winner. Haye can fight the loser.

Boente knows that as this point in time Vitali would lose to Haye and won’t allow to let the fight happen.

If Aerrola wins his next fight; if I were Haye; I would gun for a fight with Chris. If he gets pass Chris Vitali will have no choice but to face him or look the same way he tried to make Lennox look when Lennox refused him a rematch!!!!!

Vitali is right. What have little toe Haye done to decide when he wanna meet Vitali, when he already had the chance.
