Agreed. “Experts” are complaining how boring the Klitschkos are because they use their boxing skills instead of rushing stupidly in. They are put down because they won’;t take chances? Whatever.

scat man you cannot name ten heavy weights ever who could be vitali in his prime. the first group you name shavers was a puncher at 190 lbs he had no chin tired early . no chance jerry quarry tough guy koed shavers in 2 beat ron lyle in good match quarry was to small cut easy no chance. norton cowarderd from big punchers like (( foreman shavers cooney) only one he could beat was ali. norton no chance. So that leaves foreman strong big puncher couldnt box crude vitali iron chin holds up and he out boxes and out last foreman .frazier was hard as hell but he was small also 5ft11 201 in shape. boavena knock him down twice joe bugner gave him trouble on size alone . he has a chance but vitalli to big holds him off.that leaves ali ali was great but not like you belive he could be hit and hit often look at him today .bonevena gave him hell cooper decked him .he was hit hard and often by small guys like doug jones midenberger . with tall fighters he couldnt lean back the way he did .he still got hit. look what norton did to him bugner hit him. he went down 4 times he wasnt a big puncher many guys walked throuh him he best thing was his ability to take a punch and out last everyone that fight would be be a toss up the only way I see ali winning is to cut vitali like lewis did but lewis never wanted to try it again even for 50 million dollars so there no way you going to find 10 guys who could have beaqat a prime vitali he one of the all time greats face it

What.A.Joke.This fight looked like Vitali doing a spot of sparring.This is why fans like me get hacked off with the Klitchkos and so many other “fighters”….it’s not that Vitali isnt a great heavyweight,because he is,it’s because of fights like this…fighting some lame C-class fighter like Charr,the guy looked like he couldnt move from the waist up…didnt have any power to bother VK and didnt have the athleticism or skills necessary to close down the gap,that’s why he was chosen as an opponent..and please don’t tell me it’s because there’s nobody else in the division better that Vitali could have fought.Just really sad to see mismatches like this so late in a champions career.yes,i know it happens to a lot of fighters,but it’s still sad to watch.The stoppage was premature and it was ironic that Vitali won from slicing up Charr…nice touch from Vitali with that twist and rub of the glove.I thought with all that chipfat on Charr’s head it may have afforded him some protection from cuts via a slippery facial residue…

I am a K fan but have to agree here. I did not have a problem with Wlad fighting hopeless Mormeck as he had betaen the best contenders (Chagaev, Ibragoimov, Chambers, Haye…) the years before that but Vitali is just cherrypicking too much. Charr; Sosnowski, Chisora, Briggs… realistically none of these guys were top 20 when he fought them. I realize there is not much out there, and I realize that some ‘contenders’ are simply waiting for the K’s to retire, but for me it’s quite clear that Wlad has a far better resume over the last few years then Vitali. I hope the winner of Pulev vs Ustinov is next for Vitali. If he wants to continue fighting guys that are 30 or 40 in the world…he’d better retire

wladimir didnt get beaten up by purrity, what fight did you watch? wlad beat his ass up and down the ring at one point scoring an 8 punch combo. If anyone “got their ass beat” it was purritty who took MOST the beating in the fight with the kid 20 or 21 year old wlad. its simple wladimir had not PEAKED. in his losses. sdunek through the towell in with a gassing kid against purrity. sanders caught a wide open wlad with bad footwork and what really was an uncoordinated fighter in wladimir klitschko before working with steward. wladimirs footwork, handwork, speed of both, timing and precision of his strikes and the power. wlad has now peaked. we seen what happens in wlads rematches. his opponents get burried. so we can put the losses in proper perspective. this is heavyweight boxing one can get hit and hurt like ali got hit in every fight he fought and cooper floored his ass. when you look at the years of consisten and utter domination by wladimir, you dont have much to compare it to in the annals of heavyweight boxing history. we know wlads gonna continue and his comp down the road is looking good and i would say wlad has defeated some pretty good fighters. alis coach angelo dundee compared haye to ali and said he could fight like ali. said he would beat wlad. turns out haye got UTTERLY DOMINATED. we can clearly dismiss wlads lowest points in the youngest and unpeaked portion of his career. wlads already smoked far supperior fighters to purritty, sanders and he did smoke brewster. he picked up where he left off before gassing against brewster. brewster took the worst punishment in both fights. lol. these haters want to try and judge a klitschko by their lowest point in their career and judge others by their highest. desperation. we know the super heavies are the best heavies in time. thats the klitschkos and lennox. lion king says it best

Stop all the foolishness. There is no way the little guys from the past would stand a chance against the klitsckos. Even today the smaller guys look great great against each other just like the equal size guys back then did. But in the ring with intelligent,gifted,physical giants they look boyish. Those old guys wouldnt be able to touch the new champs. Adamak and haye etc all are in the same boat with the old guys when it comes to Klitschkos (absolutely no chance).

Posted September 9, 2012 8:24 am 


Mr Rubes

So you only have the Klitschkos top 20 at best because of their competition?? 75 % past their prime etc? That means you must also have Larry Holmes, Joe Louis, and Rocky Marciano only top 20, perhaps even top 30? If you consider the likes of Holmes higher than top 30 or 20, then EXPLAIN why. WHO did they beat that wasn’t passed their prime, that wasn’t a blown up light heavyweight, that was a world beater, legend of the ring?

Posted September 9, 2012 5:23 am 


Squared Circle (a.k.a. LionKing)

The Klitschko brothers and Lewis are the most dominate heavyweights in history. The shorter, lighter, weaker HWs of the 70s — with inferior nutrition, science-based training methods, weight training, and sports medicine — wouldn’t stand a chance against them. Boxing is the the only sport in the world that has has overly nostalgic, unrealistic fans who place past champions on an unreachable pedestal and refuse to acknowledge that modern athletes are superior and dominate in every way in EVERY sport. You don’t see delusional MMA, football, basketball, hockey, baseball, track & field and Olympics fans claiming that their athletes from the 70′s are better than those of today. Boxing is unique, special and retarded in this way. The small HW’s from the 70′s would be no match for the bigger, faster, stronger, smarter and more disciplined modern Super HW’s greats. The top three ATG positions belong to Lewis and the K-Bros!
And it’s too early to reveal the order of the top 3 ATG because the K-bros are still fighting.

Take off the rose-tinted glasses. The 70s guys vs. the Klitschkos would have been like Carl Lewis running vs. Usain Bolt or Mark Spitz swimming vs. Michael Phelps: no competition. Times change, boxing became more athletic, and those huge behemoths who are not only big, but also very fast, clever, and have a great sense of balance, would KILL the 70s guys.

Posted September 9, 2012 2:54 am 


Scatman Crothers

Both tKO Brothers ARE the most dominate fighters out there right now; however if they had fought back in the 70′s when some of the best boxers were on the scene.

The journeymen would have been a good test for the KO Brothers and these journeymen were in their prime, fighters such as Shavers, Young, Quarry, had punching power and could take a punch and they had heart they weren’t afraid to fight. 75% of the KO Brothers are past prime ham and eggers that would have been demolished the same way the KO’s did to them had they fought back in the 70′s. A prime Foreman, Holmes, Norton, Frazier, and Ali would have made much more interesting fights for the KO Brothers. I don’t think they would have been as dominate though. Wladimir chin would have facing some hard hitters during one era that would have made a difference if he could take a punch. If the fighters had studied Vitali kickboxing films they would have found that he is exploited to being vulnerable to boxers such as Ali that would have kept him off balanced. Both KO Brothers deserve to be be Top 20 at best but never Top 10 fighters of all time…. I don’t fault this on their skill but rather their quality of opponents whom initially there to pad their records as their full potential was never tested……

Posted September 9, 2012 2:28 am

Congrats Vitali. There is no one out there that is close to being a threat anymore.
It’s time to bow out of boxing with your head held high, unlike most others.
You’ve been a great ambassador through the years , but it’s time to let some kids dream big and step up.
Don’t stand in their way.

David Haye fought like a coward against the younger brother, and he would probably replicate this with the older brother. I’m not saying he is a coward, but on that night last July he fought like a coward and justified his cowardly fighting style (on that one night) with a really lame excuse.
He’s a good cruiserweight, and he can do good against slow heavyweights, but he is just not in a Klitschko league. I’d like to see him against that fat kid that Vitali already beat to a pulp . . ., um, oh yeah Arreola. Yeah lets see if he can handle Arreola like Goral did. Of course a lot of people want to see Arreola fight Wladimir–can’t figure that one out–they must hate the poor guy and wanna see his eyes swell shut again. If Goral survives the freight train tonight he looks more deserving (at least on paper) than Arreola and haye combined.

In the words of the “great” Sam Peter. Who next? There is no next. We have witnessed and enjoyed the greatest heavyweight champion in history. For me it has been an honour and a privilege to watch Vitali’s career pan out. The guy is a beast who has no equal. Not today not last year, decade nor last century. He may not be the prettiest on the eye but who cares. Vitali has no equal. There is not a heavyweight champion in the world that would last the 12 rds with hi,. All I say say is that it has been an honour.

Funny yet not surprising the David Faye nut slurpers show up tonight. Vitali wins by KO yet again and that’s supposed to mean Faye has a chance at beating him. Sure, because against Wlad when ran like a coward, lost and blamed his toe it qualified him for a shot at Vitali. It also suggest he’d have a chance of beating Vitali — when you’re drunk on Kool-Aid or simply deranged.

You guys can’t discount a quality fighter like Jameel McCline…yes, he’s past his prime but he was at one time a legitimate contender and is a five time title challenger…he’s no journeyman. This was the toughest test to date for Mago. Verdict is still out on the big Russian.

Maybe not competitive but this is a fun card. Mago-McCline sounds like a wild brawl and as everyone expected Vitali issued a beatdown. Hey, that’s why we like heavyweights right? Watching big men score KOs.

Let me see if I got this right. Some of you figure since Vitaly is a 41-year-old with more than 50 fights under him, he old enough and slowed down enough that Haye would have a shot at him? Really?
Evem if you were right, what would it prove? I think Haye could probably beat Holyfield right now, but that would hardly make him a better fighter.
The K Brothers have been great champs and they have nothing left to prove. The best thing that could happen to the heavyweight division is for both of them to retire and let the contenders battle it out. We could have some really good matchups if we could get enough of these guys to actually fight each other.

Shame about Magu – he’s shown tonight that he’s a hypejob, any top 10 HW would have taken him out tonight. Apart from Adamek, “Goral” to his friends, who has slightly less punching power than my arthritic 55 year old mother. I don’t know why some posters are howling when others say they’d like to see VK vs Haye. I’m one of the people who thinks that fight would be infinitely more interesting than watching VK vs Charr and I don’t see how anyone in their right mind could argue otherwise. People were saying that Haye would be knocked out by WK’s jab before the fight. Guess what, it didn’t happen. Haye does not have a great chin like VK but he has a decent one. It’s not like Amir Khan’s and was good enough to get him to undisputed CW champion. He got hit flush by WK’s right hand relatively frequently and didn’t go down, he wasn’t even in trouble. Yes he ran but Haye is a speed counterpuncher with great power. Anyone who expected him to stand there and trade off with WK (even if WK had been prepared to…) is a fool. Haye was looking for 2 big consecutive power punches and they didn’t come, so the result was a WK points win. All very predictable. He did have WK in some trouble in the 12th though where he was hanging on for most of a minute. SO…at this stage in VK’s career, and no-one is I think suggesting that a prime VK would not have demolished Haye in 5 rounds, it is an interesting fight. IMO. Vitali is slower and easier to hit. Haye wouldn’t knock him out, i don’t think, but I think he would slip enough and land enough to make the fight competitive. The evidence of that is the Chisora fight. Chisora took perhaps 4 rounds of that right and he doesn’t have any speed to speak of.

Not so fast with putting Vitaly out to pasture , Limey . And please don’t parade that phony ass Toe Fairy as
a fierce Dragon to frighten Vitaly with ! We all saw how Hayes pissed his pants as soon as he was walking up to the ring , the rest of the ” fight “, he was just RAN, trying to find a corner to hide in . Admitedly Vitaly IS past his prime , but it would take a whole lot more fighter to put him down , even now , than the Toe Fairy can ever hope to be ! And those my boy , are the facts!

Please shut up about Haye, he has had his chance to fight Vitali before. And why not let haye fight his way to a titlefight ?.

If this was Vitali’s swan song, it was hardly a competitive one; I’m betting his pride will make him take a long look at David Haye before the Ukrainian moves from one dirty profession into an even dirtier one (called politics).

Abdusalamov’s cloak of perceived invincibility was removed and showed that he is quite beatable, while McCline showed that he still suffers from the dreaded malady called “closure paralysis.” He needs to retire.

Are you two serious? Have you already forgotten Haye’s non-performance against Klitschko? Let me remind you — HAYE DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Worse, this was after shooting his mouth off for years about how he was going to destroy the Klitschkos. At this point in time, Haye only has his physique and a big mouth — nothing more. He wants another chance at millions and title shot? I say he needs to go out and EARN it.

Posted September 8, 2012 7:03 pm

The poor guy thinks his situation can be compared to Vitali’s when he was forced to give up against Lewis due to a heavy cut. Actually, he tried to imitate Klitschko’s reaction after the fight by not wanting to give up and trying to rouse the audience.

This time again, the most entertaining thing in the Klitschko fights is the comical talent of their opponents. At least, Charr can now fulfill his dream and buy a built-in kitchen for his mother.

Hahaha this obsession with a suped up cruiser is baffling. Harsh facts are that against big heavies Haye is too scared to work his way in to get his shots off. Yeah looked good against chisora but there was no risk of ko! No bottle! You can’t coach that

Ok ok, but Haye waxed Chisora Klit didn’t. That’s enough to entitle Haye with the shot IMO.

Patrick2 – you say he is a clown but he ko’d a guy Vitali couldn’t and brings more excitement and hence money than any contender out there, fact.
Vitali has never really had the huge, blockbuster payday he deserved (though still a very wealthy man), his only chance is vs Haye. Personally I would like Vitali to call it a day, retire with his outstanding record and ride off into the sunset with his faculties in tact. If he fights Haye he could lose on points (something that would have been impossible with a peak Vitali).

This Charr guy was the worst boxer I have seen in years. He was beyond awful. This is not knocking Vitali at all but that Charr guy was appalling, he went life and death with a shot Danny Williams.
If I had paid to actually watch this I would be pretty annoyed.

Posted September 8, 2012 6:38 pm 


Patrick2

Haye is a clown. What has he done to deserve/earn a rematch? Answer: Nothing. To be a legitimate challenger he needs to fight/beat about three top-10 ranked heavies. THEN, he can step back in with a Klitschko. As for Charr — much the same thing — he should have FIRST fought/beat a few top-10 heavies before he ever got a chance to fight Klitschko. Where is the “super 6″ for the heavyweight _contenders_?

In his prime Vitali would’ve knocked this joke out cold in the first round. Time to hang them up champ, not that he can’t continue for years with the current crop of hw’s but he is nowhere near what he was and he was a beast. Should avoid Haye at all costs.
Vitali has done everything he could, there is nothing left for him, except Haye and he could lose that due to age and slowing down. At his peak would’ve absolutely murdered Haye. Time to leave with his legacy intact.

Pans – I do agree with you on the prime Holyfiled analysis. Unfortunately none of today’s HWs even know how to throw a body shot… let alone jab your way inside (a la Tyson). It may seem that I regularly knock the Klit brothers, but in reality I am more upset at the lack of decent, skilled HWs today.

Kid Blast, I think VK, has already maned up, its the guy with the hurt Toe that has to man up, just like Safety Pin, full of excuses. Dude got knocked out by an old, light heavyweight, think he knows his chances against VK, fight will never happen cause Haye’s just a big talker..

Posted September 8, 2012 6:32 pm 


doc

night train – Yes I did watch the Solis fight. Solis did not throw a lot of punches (fighting as a counter-puncher), but when he did he landed. Chisora also landed regularly (once he started to let his hands go) and had Vitali looking very tired in the 12th round. Even tonight, Charr who has no boxing skills at all, was able to land when he threw punches. My point was that if Vitali can be hit regularly by guys with limited skills (Chisora and Charr), then Haye would definitely land at some point and quite regularly. Will Haye win? Who knows? I just want to see the fight as a fight fan. Peace.

Posted September 8, 2012 6:27 pm 


Pans

Nope, Chisora got hit clean with everything Haye threw because he haplessly walked forward thinking Haye’s shots couldn’t hurt him. If you think Vitali would be that easy to hit you’re deluded. Vitali has more than enough power to keep Haye honest and dictate distance. Vitali would struggle more with an inside pressure fighter like a prime Holyfield. Haye doesn’t have the style, and he doesn’t have the chin to be able to tee off on Vitali himself with reckless abandon without risking gettin KO’d himself. Chisora wasn’t one shotted by Haye, he was getting hit flush with regularity.

Doc. did you actually watch the Solis fight, he landed one fair right hook, that VK took without noticing. By the end of round one, he was back peddling into the ropes and on the taking end of things, when you back peddle against VK with that reach advantage it won’t be long, and it wasn’t..

Posted September 8, 2012 6:18 pm 


righthook

Haye doesn’t have the kind of power you think he has and it would without a doubt be similar to every other fight Vitali is in. Don’t kid yourself if you are actually looking for that fight to be exciting. One sided fight for Vitali yet again. Don’t forget he’s never been hurt in a fight. If Lennox can’t hurt him…..little boy Haye has no chance.

How did Mormeck do better than Charr. Mormeck only threw 2 punches in the first round of the fight, and basically took a dive. at least Charr seemed to have some sort of strategy (cover up the first 2 minutes of each round, and then fight the last minute). One other thing: That was the quickest fight stoppage due to a cut that I have ever seen. Charr didn’t even have the opportunity to let his corner work on it in-between rounds. When Vitali got cut by Lewis he was allowed to fight 3 more rounds before the doctor was forced to stop the fight. Not to say that Charr had any chance to win….

Vitali looked old but Haye would run around the ring and lose practically every round against pensioner Klitschko, prime Vitali would knock Haye’s head into the third row.

Posted September 8, 2012 6:12 pm

He dominated Charr from the opening bell and busted him up to a stoppage, a far cry from Lewis Klitschko. No need to see this again, it was way too one sided. Get your head examined.

Posted September 8, 2012 6:10 pm

If Vitali gets hit as easily as he has in his last 3 fights (Solis, Chisora, and even no-hope Charr), he had better steer way clear of Haye at this stage in his career. Love him or hate him, Haye is a devastating counter-puncher . The fact that Vitali likes to fight (unlike his younger brother who runs and/or holds when pressured), could mean big trouble against Haye. I just hope the fight happens.

@Lenin What’s Haye done to deserve a Vitali fight? (Much less a Vitali fight in GB). I hope Vitali does fight Haye next because he’s getting old and he’s in danger of a Haye fight being competitive if he waits any longer.

Vitalyi is getting older with every fight. For his standards he was terrible today… So slow and easy to hit. He’s a great champ, but should hang the gloves up.
Charr was really funny after the fight :-)

If Charr would have been as active as he was after the fight actually DURING the fight, he wouldn’t have looked like a human punching bag. Bad performance, and he looked very soft. Train harder, Charr! Vitali TKO 4

Fight over: HUGE cut at Charr’s right eye, blinding him. Blood all over his chest. He’s furious, wants to fight on, but no way with him bleeding like that. Vitali winner in a VERY one-sided fight by TKO.
