if wlad has a glass chin then why hasn’t he been even close to knocked down in nearly 10 years? time to let go of the past, dumb ass, and realize that wlad is making history. won’t be stopping anytime soon either as he has a good 4-5 years left. larry holmes, say bye bye to your defense record soon…Posted May 4, 2013 9:49 pm
Wlad = All class.Posted May 3, 2013 4:43 pm
It seems obvious to me why Wlad picked Pianetta, he obviously admires the guy for having battled cancer and coming back into the ring.

Vitaly is the superior boxer of the brothers, I like his style, audience friendly, but he is aging.
On the other hand, I can’t remember a single exciting moment, in a WK fight. Not one.
To compare WK with a HW great, like Lennox Lewis, is just not logical.

OK Fact hole guy- What ATG’s has Wladdie fought? You say he has cleaned out the division, well if you mean one of the weakest line-ups in history and a bunch of cruisers, then I see your point.Posted May 2, 2013 11:02 pm

Lennox defeated EVERY OPPONENT HE HAS FACED.Posted May 2, 2013 10:58 pm
He could have at least fought his mandatory, but no. He wants an easy payday first. As for vitali, everyone knows he is ducking hate. Thats an alternativePosted May 2, 2013 8:26 pm
Pathetic fight. No interest whatsoever. Easiest payday in sportPosted May 2, 2013 6:44 pm

i guess haye was a “beer belly” too eh? i think he said that about the k’s opponents before flopping his way to a loss. sosnowski was in excellent shape as was damaek and charr and as has been most of the kbros opponents. just none of them are good enough to beat the great K-2.Posted May 2, 2013 6:39 pm

vitali, never down or knocked out (unlike lewis), never behind on the cards in any fight, taken on all that he has been asked to (ducked valuev, lol) and a future hall of famer. just let the whiners and complainers try to convince themselves otherwise on this forum.Posted May 2, 2013 6:37 pm
MK ; obviously an ” expert ” !Posted May 2, 2013 6:30 pm
I think it’ll look a lot like big brother Vittles fight with Sosnowski. 10th round koPosted May 2, 2013 5:54 pm
Vitaly has never met anyone close to his size except Lewis. His technic is poor, no KO punch, and his only advantage is a reach. He avoided even Valuev, who was a very bad boxer. I wouldn’t even consider Vitaly as a great boxer, and of course would not compare him with anyone who could box. Wlad is a different story. He has glassy chin, but managed to stay as a champion for long time. Thanks to Emanuel Stewart he has good defence, also KO punch from both hands, speed and brain. He could be compared to some champions.Posted May 2, 2013 5:19 pm
Fight with povetikin is expected to be in moscow. Klit must KO povetkin, otherwise they will give victory to Povetkin, even if he is beaten as a goat.Posted May 2, 2013 5:03 pm
WK and VK are the superior HWs, in this period, but the HW division is filled with beer bellies and eastern European bums.
WKs style is almost impossible to do anything about (Stiff jab, hold and move), but his fights are as exciting as Andre Ward fights.
A prime VK, whom I am a fan of, had great trouble with an old Lennox Lewis, who was getting to him, but a prime Lewis would obviously beat him, along with a prime Tyson and a prime Holyfield, on neutral grounds.
WK would not stand a chance against the above 3 fighters, in their prime.
WK has met 0 top class boxers
My opinion: The HW division is historically weak.Posted May 2, 2013 3:10 pm
all fights are nice safe fights for wlad including a fight with povetkin. author is a clown.Posted May 2, 2013 11:50 am

The champ looks in shape in this photo. I understand he feels good as well which will mean a long (or a short) night for the challenger. Real nice of Wlad to give the cancer survivor Pianeta a chance to take those belts. The Klitschko brothers are a class act in and out of the ring.Posted May 2, 2013 11:23 am
Redmond is a cancer on this site and in society. A bottom feeding scumbag.Posted May 2, 2013 9:04 am
All the k2 haters are bottom feeders of society. Real lowlives.Posted May 2, 2013 9:03 am
Brainless is insulting to the comments section. Klitschko in your dreams boy? Needless to say in some folks case it is more a nightmare than a dream. Being the best like K-2 seems to cause all sorts to come out of the woodwork.Posted May 2, 2013 4:59 am
who cares about this fight. 1 – 50 on Wlad is a joke and insult to boxing.Posted May 1, 2013 10:12 pm
Bears sounds like he’s got Sred’s number . I think everybody else is pretty

The Author says “Pianeta, a weak puncher without hand speed, defense or stamina”… Has he watched Pianeta at all? The guy has mad power and excellent shell defense and has never shown to been gassed in a fight since his fighting style is low output countering… Seriously…
That being said. Pianeta’s style isn’t the type to beat Wlad. Pianta likes to keep a high guard while absorbing punishment and then exploding upon his opponent. Wlad will find his way around this guard and wreck Pianeta. Though Wlad should probably make sure to avoid gassing out and pace himself. Many boxers have not given Pianeta’s power enough respect and have gotten Ko’d
I think they are rushing Pianeta. He needs to fight some top 10 opponents again before fighting Wlad.Posted May 1, 2013 1:22 pm
If Pianeta were an American he would be the best HW out of USA…..Posted May 1, 2013 1:18 pm

Big Dan–how about a free agent, NBA player (albeit non-Slav) instead? (Mondays news in the U.S.)Posted May 1, 2013 11:08 am
yeah. I have only one issue with the KBros and it is there opposition. But it is clearly undeniable that they are freaking awesome champs in and out of the ring. Sred come on mate. Give them some credit. If you think Lennox can beat then ok but who else could. Not many is any at all. They would be great in any era and are great right now.Posted May 1, 2013 8:06 am

I could just melt into those big slavic arms, Pianeta is a lucky guy up close and personal with all that sweaty hot clinching. Love you WK, toodles D-RafPosted May 1, 2013 4:49 am
who cares about the crackpot redmond. he is east side’s version of the homeless guy standing at the street corner with a sign that reads “the end is near”. he’s the resident delusional crackpot. he talks all this klitschko detracting but everything and everyone around him disputes it. the money, the statistics, the turnout at the fights (even the money making mandatories like mormek), the records, the professionals around the sport and sports professionals just talk up the klitschKOs saying things like”you would ko ali”. there is NOBODY in the professional world of sports detracting from the klitschKOs. and if you can find someone let me know. CAUSE YOU CANT. all you cant find is the solo crackpot on the corner with his detractor sign. all alone. a delusional clown. his name, SREDMOND. ask him to furnish just one person who concurs with his views. he is unable to. he is not even worth responding to. he’s in his own little world that is OWNED BY THE KLITSCHKOs. what a pathetic existence. redmond is actually a slave to the klitschKOs. he gives them his whole attention day in and day out. he has klitschKOs on his head and in his mouth 24-7. THEY HAVE DEFILED HIS SOUL AND WEARIED HIS HEART.Posted May 1, 2013 4:14 am
