WTF?

Our electricity and gas bills are going up again by between 6 and 8% again on November 15th!

WTF?

Ever since Ukraine had that stand off with Russia regarding their fuel pipe lines and Europe sat and did nothing we have been the victims of extortion on a truly mind boggling scale. Disgusting! Time for the real men to stand up and take action against these money grabbing b*st**ds who have been ripping us off for more than 10 years!

Another delusional thought from Turd, “great day all around”? well if you think that the stinker king Klit out-stunk himself is a great day for the sport, more power to you.
I have to note that the nuthuggers are faithful to their hero, no matter how ridiculous their words make them look to the rest of the world…

His “bad” day was a GOOD day for Wladimir.., 17 million dollars.. A shutout victory over an Undefeated Former Olympic Heavyweight Champion and present Heavyweight Champion.. and he never got hit with a good shot all night … Wilder hit him harder in sparring sessions.

Great day all around … and screw the haters.

When Kofax had a bad day, he and his team felt it. When Klit has his usual bad day the sport and the fans have a bad day, big difference…

The comments kind of petered out… People know the fight wasn’t up to Klitschko’s standard.. Makes no difference..

Sandy Kofax had good days and bad days too… But on his bad days he got blown off the mound… He didn’t pitch a shutout and wiff the side in 4 different innings.

Lucas ; from the way you talk about Wlad , and the way you write your posts , you sound like a narrow minded , jealous fan , whose heroes are probably ; Wach , Adamek , and Sosnowski . If you did not like this fight , maybe you enjoyed what Wlad did to the undefeated Wach ( there was not much clinching there , except when Wach was hammered almost senseless ) ,
or how Vitaly completely disposed of Sosnowski and Adamek ? Personally ,
I have to agree with you I liked those fights much better myself . Normally ,
Polish fans , are respectful of the Champions , you however seem to be an exception . Never mind , thankfully there are many more of the knowledgeable fans , than the kind you represent !

Wach was not a “terrible” fighter… Wach scored an easy one punch KO over a guy who stopped Mike Tyson. Wach was 27-0 when he faced Wladimir and was coming off 7 straight KO’s.

Check out Wach’s KO of Christian Hammer if you want to see great hand speed and a cataclysmic KTFO KO.

Wach cannot even get anyone into a ring with him since the Wladimir fight… Even Deontay Wilder, who nobody wants to fight because he hits like a ton of bricks, doesn’t want to face him.

David Haye, “Wach is the toughest man I’ve ever shared a ring with. I don’t think you could hurt him with a baseball bat.”

People be honest with yourselfs. Did somebody like Wladimir style in last fight? Maybe only his mother. If someone knows little bit about boxing shouldn’t say it was good performance. He was scared mixing up with smaller opponent. He did not gain more fans. He lost a lot. To be a champion act like a champion. Wlad is definely not my hero!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Time and again , they try their feeble ” arguments ” on him , only to find themselves totally outclassed and schooled , kind of like ; Wlad and Povetkin !

Tark is a SAD desperado Ali provided PLENTY of EPIC clashes that have names etched in history “Rumble in the Jungle” “Thrilla in Manilla”… Wladimir Klitschko has NOT been in an EPIC ANYTHING!!! His 2 biggest name fights he STUNK out the arena (Haye and Povetkin)… Ali could draw more fans in Vegas today fighting at 70 plus with Parkinsons than Wlad could after that HORRID showing the other night… He is being BASHED all over the place for his tactics and style… Tarks weak attempt to defame Ali or point out a less than stellar night as an attempt to mitigate Wlads consistent stinkfests, weak opponents and sparring partners has as per usual FALLEN FLAT…There is a DAMN good reason US audiences are NOT tuning in to see this good looking, well spoken athlete and the answer is “boxings not a modeling contest” and as a HW of his stature the expectations for excitement and bravery are NOT being met…. Wlad wins but somehow manages to LOSE fans in the process… The other night was the FINAL nail in his coffin as a potential US attraction he will NEVER resonate with fans here… Across seas they cheer him fighting ANY BUM he can dig up (Mormeck 40 year old washed up Cruiser, Pianeta NON WORLD CLASS Sparring partner) Wach NON World Class no skill having, Frankenstein, then he faces a ducker who once had some decent credentials and he HUGS the man 181 times in a 12 round bout by some official counts!…

Wlad needs to think about hanging up the boxing gloves. He’s proved to be a waste of time and a bore to boxing. It’s obvious he’s juiced up and almost runs out of gas when pressed. He’s showing that he terrified of that he might actually get hit and opts to grab hold and hit while holding. No will pay to see him fight anymore. I hope the plants here on this site make good money to defend him. No one cares. Mayweather is keeping the sport alive on a global scale. Klinchko and his corny non personality brother may be the most boring and unentertaining boxers of the last 20 years. They may be dominant but they bring no excitement to the sport.

Yes it was a boring fight ,but that said every time Povetkin got close he bent down to Klits waist!! What would you do in that situation? I would have done the same thing if I was Wlad . I think it was just a clash of styles or lack of style.

It’s very rare that I agree with Teddy Atlas . And he rarely misses an opportunity to down the Klitchkos , but the one thing I have to agree with him on is ; he knew exactly what he was doing when he wouldn’t let Porvetkiin
even come close to Wlad . Povetin is not now or will EVER be ready to
be in the same ring with either Brother , period .

Rod: I predicted Wlad vs David Haye would be a boring fight when just about everyone else fell for the “fight of the century hype”.
Wlad is a great long range puncher but he is too scared by the KO losses to Sanders and Brewster to fully engage in a fight.
The better the opponent is the more Wlad will resort to grabbing and leaning, and it proved so last night, in fact the more Wlad hugs and leans relates to how much respect he has for his opponent.
Haye said that Wlad has arms like an octopus that cling on to you on Povetkin certainly felt the octopus love last night!

Posted October 6, 2013 10:34 pm

Wlad won and is the champ. I predicted it would be a boring fight and it was. Saying that wlad did what a 6’6 man should do. I would love to see wlad against another 6’6 plus guy who can punch and unlike wach can actually move around the ring. It is yet to happen.

Let’s put it this way BEARS, I too have read various sites and reviews on the fight and most that I have seen generally think that Wlad despite his dominance “performed” horribly.
Add to that Roy Jones Junior said that it was a good win for Klitschko but not a good performance.
Even Wlad himself admits that he could have performed better last night.

Sedrmen, it seems the only time, for the most part klitschko gets scared is when he fights a light skined fighter. You use the word hillybilly often, your a citybilly. You and hillybillys are one in the same, you both say ya’LL and eat the same foods, like cornbread and greens. The only diffrence is hillybillys live in the country and citybillys livd in the city. I coined CITYBILLY, when I lived in the city with your people and relized the getto people were the same as hillbillys and coined citybilly, so you really stop talking about your people hillybillys are your first cousins.

Really can’t see how anyone can justify the fight. It was terrible end of story. And to say povetkin lunged in with his head so Wlad can push his back down is crazy. I won’t put myself through to watch that mess again but I know what I saw the 1st time. Bad Ref and really dirty tactics.

Posted October 6, 2013 7:53 pm

Quote from Wlad:
“It’s always a dream of mine to dominate a fight so much that the opponent has no chance to hurt me and I knock him out.”

Sounds like Floyd and Ward dream too,except without the knockout. Except they put more variety of skills into it. Like when Ward was criticized for laying on Alan Green’s chest the whole fight, he came back with more interesting style the next few fights. And look at Bradley who reacted to criticism by almost getting himself zombified by Provodnikov. But Wlad seems to really not care about entertainment value.”Sorry but I have to keep my belts”-postfight Ibragimov snoozefest.

OVER 100 fights between the Kbros and really one of the only ones worth discussing saw Vitali moaning in the ring postfight like a wounded Goat…Wlad has mastered winning while losing objective US based fans, now he hits a NEW LOW clutching and tossing Povetkin about while the ref looks on! The SAD part is that Klits was NOT hurt, he just lives in fear of being harmed so despite his advantages he uses his massive frame to stop the action…Announcers and boxing folk all around are wondering what the hell they just saw…If a fighter were tossing Klits around like that Bears would go with his sling shot, a bag of hillbilly heroin, sell his mothers Headstone and book a flight to save Wladdy… Klits harmed his reputation with that display, folks are talking…

we can complain about the officiating in many a boxing bout. We can complain about the judging but nobodys cleaning it up. We can complain that the best contenders are not being FORCED to fight eachother. But these are the consequences of deep corruption and the freedom each fighter has or their promoter has. In the ufc fighters have no say or freedom and do not promote themselves. Its very fighter unfriendly. they have limited contracts their pay is limited and they are told when, where, and who they will fight and for how much. This is better for the fan and not the fighter. I think an extra ref ringside watching the camera angles and mic’ed up to the ref in the ring is a great idea to ensure the proper officiating. officiating failed in the vitaly klitschko vs lennox lewis match. Would have been a decision win for vitaly had they got it right. I’m all for proper officiating being enforced but I also think wlad fought within the rules in terms of the clinching. There is no rule that quantifies an agreeable ammount of holding. Its just somebodies subjective view. That will not due that leaves the rule open to interpretation and too subjective. sports cant have rules like that. clinching is a big part of boxing so really pitching a fit about it is really history repeating itself. this has been going on since before any of us were born.

Sredmond still pivoting to purritty sanders and brewster since july 2011

Lol and who among you would believe that sanders, purritty or brewster are greater than the great wlad klitschKo!!!! NONE OF YOU. which renders sredmonds statement irrelevant.

What heavyweight never lost before? a white one named rocky marciano so by sredmonds “sanders, purritty, brewster logic rocky is the best ever right?

What heavyweight has never been knocked down, knocked out, or given a standing 8 or even been loosing on the cards? a white one. the great vitaly klitschKO. You know vitlay clean sheeted lennox outlanding him every round of the fight and 66% of it with one eye. Beat on him so bad he retired when the wbc forced the rematch old lennox got retired and the last thing he heard was a crowd booing him and he was a boxer no more. FORCED out by the great vitaly.

If were judging fighters by the worst they ever looked man its not good for any heavyweight but pretty much rocky and vitaly. lol @ sredmond

There is NOTHING that Bears, or the Clit Crusaders can say to get the STENCH of last nights bout out of the noses of the public…We have seen regular Klit supporters call out the rancid nature of last nights bout… Writers and announcers spelled it out clearly… Wlads reign is marked by very poor contests and NOT because he dominates it’s the OLD foes, the hugging, the timidity of this massive HW, now this dreadful exhibition… Even his brother though beaten bloody and TKOed in 6 was in a fight where he really went for it… The younger Klit despite his physical gifts is a man who’s insecurities about his chin after serial KO’s have left him as VERY effective but unwatchable…!!! I can still hear the now dead Manny Steward screaming at him to “step it up” get Chambers and Chagaev outta there!! No matter Klits career is ending on a down note Povetkin was his first “name” defense in YEARS and Klits decided he wanted to wrestle…Bears has gone after EVERY ref in history who presided over a fight this hillbilly did not like yet he applauds Povetkin being tossed to the ground for 12 rounds… Povetkin would not have gotten past 6 with Lennox Lewis

Got me all hot and excited. I want me a real man to breath down my neck, me being a big bear an all. I want him to hold me real close and squeeze me real tight like a good old klit can do. Umm. Yum yum, I got me so excited I just forgot to spit and swallowed me some old chewing tobaccy! Yeash! Oh well. A dose of dosey do with a klit will clean out the old pipes.

The only time I see fans go on for hours about the fighters purse is when it s dudes like sedmen or whatever his name is. I find it strange to be honest. I guess when you come from the hood it s a more important than everything else. Moving on up weezy, no more grape coolaid and romen noodles. Sedmen is for sure rascist and wont admitt it, but theres a lot of white rascist, mexican rascit to on here. If I ever here sedmen say 1 possitive thing about I white fighter I ll crap my pants lol.

Tony “Tiger” Thompson does not have an athletic build but a southpaw with that power and size is formidable. To suggest Larry Donald could have beat “Tiger” Thompson is absurd. The only heavyweight I would have beating “Tiger” Thompson from the over hyped 90′s era is Lennox Lewis and that fight would not have been a give me. Holyfield and Tyson certainly would not have had the size to have competed with “Tiger” Thompson.

Nicholas, Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto, land Lennox Lewis are NOT US natives yet they were able to become financially successful here.. The Klits had opportunities but lack the “Wow” factor and quality of opponents to prosper here.. We cannot make excuses! Why do you think Vitali wanted a Lewis rematch so bad? It was his only shot at making serious coin and raising his profile..But alas he failed to get what would have been a career changing win…Mayweathers a BOSS more money than any other sportsman the past 2 years and he only needed 144 minutes over that span to make that cake… Amazing!!

You did the SAME with Canelo, you KNEW the terms of the bout and SWORE on your stripper daughters life that Canelo would smash Mayweather and now You are making excuses… Classic Bears!! Obviously the paying public loved Guerrero and Ortiz because they rewarded Mayweather with the biggest PPV by revenue in history…Meanwhile Wlad just reminded us why the HW division is in the doldrums…If you and the rest of the BUMS you run with on here are not impressed with Floyd then why all the matchmaking and trying to pair him against 160 pounders with padded resumes?

There has been talk of compairing klitschko / mayweather in terms of defence and or not getting hit. Its obvious you can not compair the two fighter. Floyd weighs 147 and wald.. weighs 241 and is 6′ 6. Everbody knows a little guy like floyd is going to be more atheletic than a giant like klit… jim lamply was half right, max keller man wss only half tight aswell. Max kellerman had me cracking up with his stupid bloody dead bull storie before the cotto fight. Klitschko did cheat in this fight no doubt about it. I belive alexander povk… would have done a lot better if klit… wasent fouling so much, maybe even ko klitschko in 6. Klitschko knew it to , hence all the holding. I wouldlike to sed a fair rematch, with a honest and fair ref, with a clean fight. Even thou kellermans a klitscho hater, the fight was not my cup of tea, bad perfofmAnce by klit… its seems to be the case evertime hbo gets involved lol.

Posted October 6, 2013 3:45 pm 


Nicolas

SREDMOND: First, In most of Europe there is no pay per view, so the amount of money that Klitschko can make there is no where in comparison of what Mayweather can make in the US. Also look at the pay per view ticket prices that were charged for the last fight. ALso it was severtal fighters who were able to finally bring Mayweather into the limelight. First wws Arturo Gatti, very popular in Atlantic City where he fought him. Finally he took on Oscar Da La Hoya, and then Ricky Hatton in Las Vegas, where there seemed to be more Hatton fans than Mayweather fans for that fight. Fnally his last fight with Alvarez, he was taking on a man who was showing himself to be a major box office star in boxing, if not also an overrated fighter. Finally what also helped put him in the limelight was the fighter he never fought, Manny Pacquiao. Certainly I agree that Wlad is not as popular in the US as Mayweather, but I would wonder, except for Gerat Britain if Mayweather would be of less intrest in Europe than Wlad is in America.

If Wladimir fights and manages to defeat Kubrat Pulev next, he will have beat Tony “Tiger” Thompson, Alexander Povetkin and Kubrat Pulev in 3 of his last 4 fights. in any other era Povetkin, Pulev and Thompson all would have been champions. If Wladimir is to defeat them all almost with in a year that will truly go down as one of the most amazing accomplishments in the history of boxing.

And it was till LESS than Half of Mayweathers 41.5 million dollar base guarantee!! Excluding PPV upside and promotions which project to net him around 70 mill plus for one bout… Mayweather is a small fighter so the expectations are different, a nervous close to 7 footer rubs peeps the wrong way…THATS why the Wlad was on the Cotto undercard in the US, no ones gonna pay to see his brand of boxing here whereas Floyd Mayweather is being paid more than any fighter in history for his work….

Hidalgo aint right

And didn’t Wlad recently PUMMEL an opponent who was both taller and outweighed him recently (Wach)? A fight that should have been stopped in the 8th, a fight that was a total WHITE WASH on all the cards. If the Klits only get by because of their size “advantages” then surely logic would dictate that when they fight guys their own size then they should struggle a bit. On the contrary! If anything they EAT UP guys their own size or bigger! Jefferson KO2 Austen KO2 Wach WHITE-WASH. Hoffman WHITE-WASH. Mc Cline KO10 (schooled rounds 1-9). Ironically it’s the smaller guys that have given the Klitschkos that rare bit of trouble! Peter (1st fight). Byrd. Brock (although KOd in 7, had arguably given Wlad a tough time in the early goings) Chisora. Although it only lasted a round but Solis (just 6’1″) managed to connect on Vitali a lot more than any other fighter had in recent memory. So EXPLAIN that one haters?? You STILL calling for a new division?

Hidalgo aint right

Now compare Valuev clearly losing to Chagaev to the one-sided domination Wlad inflicted upon him. Those saying the Klits only win because of their size, well then explain why Valuev couldn’t do a thing against Chagaev?? It wouldn’t happen to be because of the fact that they are simply light years better and more skilled than all the rest?? Adamek famously said that it wouldn’t have mattered if Vitali was 4 inches shorter on the night, he still wouldn’t have won. Vitali was simply too well schooled and skilled a boxer for him. Adamek should know too, having already bested behemoths Mc Bride and Grant. And while all three-Mc Bride, Klitschko, Grant, are about the same size, only ONE of them was able to DOMINATE and DESTROY the Pole. Credit where it’s due HATERS.

Posted October 6, 2013 3:14 pm 


Hidalgo aint right

Valuev won that WBA strap with a questionable MD over Ruiz. He defended it 3 times against mediocre opposition and then in his 4th defence, when he actually stepped up in comp to fight his mandatory, he was CLEARLY beaten by 5’9″ Chagaev! His OVER one foot and about 100 pound weight “advantage” didn’t help too much there, did it? He won the WBA again via controversial dec. over Holyfield, and lost it in his first defence. My point is that people calling for a new Division now are people who are slating the Klitschkos. WHY should there be one created? Because the bros are THAT good?? Bowe was champ but only made 2 defences before being dethroned by “blown up cruiser” Holyfield. BS those who claim a new division is needed. BASED ON WHAT EVIDENCE? WHAT FACTS?

Posted October 6, 2013 3:13 pm 


Hidalgo

Demon you little tw*t, the only people who make excuses are the Klitschkos. For instance, when Wlad fought Mormeck he admitted that he had a huge size advantage, but then he followed up by saying “but Mormeck is a different kind of boxer…yadayadayada. Big old Mormeck at 5’11 1/2″ tall. Wlad had a good 7 inches in height on him, a seven inch reach advantage, and he outweighed him by nearly 30 lbs.

Someone said that Wlad beating Tony Thompson 2x makes him “Great”
You gotta be joking! Thompsons a former Klit sparring partner who has ONLY shined against C level Comp and that Hype Job Price… The second bout with Thompson was not even necessary Tony was 41 and clearly not in Wlads league….These are just some of the SAD historical revisions that ONLY play on ESB Thankfully…. Klits is a monument to quantity over quality and his career is winding down in DREARY fashion… Sparring Partners, Old Men, Duckers and a bout where he suddenly decided he wanted to work on his takedowns…??? The good thing for the Klits is that the US WISELY stopped watching their dry bouts years ago! And when they do get a bit of light on premium networks they disappointing (Haye, Povetkin, Charr) Imagine being the guy who signed them to a long term deal? You’d have LONG ago been fired for overpaying a 7 foot man to practice his “Bear Hug”

Posted October 6, 2013 3:01 pm

Tomato Can, in 47 fights Vitali Klitschko has fought:

Four guys who were 5’11
Three guys who were 6’0
Five who were 6’1
Three who were 6’1 1/2
Ten who were 6’2
Two who were 6′ 2 1/2
Nine who were 6’3
Two who were 6’3 1/2
Two who were 6’4
One who was 6 4 1/2
Two who were 6’5
Two who were 6’6
One who was 6’6 1/2
One who was 6’7

36 fights with opponents who were 6’3 or under. That’s a minimum of four inches to as much as seven inches shorter than Vitali. Seven fights with opponents who were 6’0 or less and twelve fights with opponents who were y’1 or less. Not to mention his huge weight advantage that he had over many of these fighters. Out of 47 opponents only 9 were 6’4″ or taller and only one was the same height as Vitali. Clearly the majority of Vitali’s opponents were significantly shorter than him and many were also much lighter.

Why? Because Vitali is a giant. So what, he fought a couple of other giants and beat them.

Size DOES make a difference and these status prove it.

SOMEONE SAID IT WAS THAT BAD LAST NIGHT, IT MADE FURY LOOK GOOD.

Posted October 6, 2013 2:22 pm 


Rise Up

But I was also impressed last night too. Wlad dominated a true, undefeated, and worthy contender. With wins over the likes of Chambers, Byrd, Boswell, Rahman, Huck, Chagaev, Povetkin was tried and tested. There’s a difference between a “prospect” with a padded undefeated record, and a “contender” with an undefeated record. Povetkin was certainly the latter. An Olympic Gold winner to booth. Last night was historical in the sense that it was the first time ever that two Olympic Gold Medal winners fought for the Heavyweight Championship. And Wlad not only shut this solid contender out, winning every round; he did it in the contender’s backyard. That deserves respect. So in brief: I was not impressed with how Wlad FOUGHT but I WAS impressed with how Wlad WON. i.e. not only winning EVERY round against a solid, undefeated contender with a great amateur pedigree, but doing it in the opponent’s home turf. And lest we forget, as ugly as the fight looked in large parts, it was still fought at a very high tempo from start to finish. That impressed me even more. The stamina of Wlad used to be a concern. No more. The chin of Wlad also used to be a concern. I also think that Wlad’s chin is also nowhere near as bad as some of the detractors would have you believe. Wlad is an ATG. No ifs or buts.

Posted October 6, 2013 2:19 pm 


Rise Up

Over 600 comments. From the brief scan I’ve had they seem to fall into one of two extremes; Those slating Wlad completely, and those bigging Wlad up. I want to try give a personal and balanced account. Let me start off by saying that I was a Wlad fan before this fight. And I still remain a Wlad fan after. I was NOT impressed with the excessive clinching. The clinching WAS to be expected in the early goings; Povetkin is a short, aggressive fighter afterall, so the taller man will always be wise to tie him up. And Wlad did just that. I don’t mind that. But after the halfway mark Wlad could have and should have adjusted his style somewhat, clinched less and fought MORE. This was his first “Super” fight since Haye. The first to be aired by HBO since that night in Hamburg. Wlad acknowledged that night that he turned off a majority of the American public and therefore in my view, should have fought a lot more “fan friendly” in the LATTER stages of the fight last night. Povetkin had nothing after 9. But still came forward. And Wlad still clinched, That I didn’t like. However, his leaning his weight on Povetkin, down on his neck, that I have NO problem with at all. It is totally legal. It’s what big fighters should always do to smaller fighters. It’s what Manny thought his big men to do. That’s just common sense.

Hecdog – Povetkin initied a lot of those clinches. He’d throw a right then lunge in and grab Wlad, ala John Ruiz. Wlad was clearly getting annoyed with it, tossing and throwing Povetkin around. Wlad usually boxes beautifully, but this time it required some ugly inside-fighting. All fighters, even champions, have some snoozefests.

I think that Wlad wanted to KO Pov and Wlad threw many right hands and most missed the target. But his left hooks and jabs picked Pov to pieces. Pov put in a respectful night and at least brought the fight to Wlad and performed much much better than haye did. I liked RJJ comments on the fight, and Kellerman stunk up the place. RJJ was spot on with his insights to the game and what the fighters were doing. Good job Roy Jones Jr, good job.

Klitschko should be embarrassed of his hugging, hitting and holding and pushing tactics he used last night. I have never witnessed such an awful display of boxing in my life. The referee obviously was a paid Klitchko ref because there was every reason in the world to DQ him. A horrible display of boxing for a so called heavyweight boxing champion.

KL, true. After 3 rounds Povetkin stopped trying to get inside. Why? Because he felt the power and decided to not get KOed. That’s what most Wlad opponents do and is why these fights become boring. Their fault not his.

Hidalgo – Vitali roughed up Lewis, who was not a “small” man. Also, Wladimir has faced some very dangerous punchers and still got the V, due to those ever elusive “skills”

Matthews, I never said the Klitschkos didn’t have any skills. But their size advantage over many of their opponents does make a distinct advantage. You would know this if you ever fought someone who was significantly smaller than you. Or bigger. Even if you never boxed as an amateur or pro.

Size matters, but not all big guys have adequate skills. Klits are better than some, lesser than others. But their size advantage often makes up when their opponents are actually better.

Koolz” Povetkin gave it his all he was throwing power shots all night looking to get inside”
———

Which fight were you watching Koolz, one of the reason why this fight was no classic was the low output of shots thrown by Povetkin, sure Wlads grab and lean tactic didn’t help Povetkin’s cause, but all the same the highly regarded Povetkin didn’t exactly try to punch his way out of those clinches.

Posted October 6, 2013 1:01 pm

So he should make the fight harder for himself by giving up range and distance. If its only size why aren’t the other big guys having any success.

Posted October 6, 2013 1:00 pm

Wlad once again wins by dominating and beating the fight out of another top opponent. 15 title defenses, 7 year title run that’s 2nd in heavyweight history behind Joe Louis. Not an exciting bout but you gotta give Wlad props for his longevity, discipline and willingness to fight everyone.

“What stoppage besides Sanders was due to Wlads chin. And he was TKOed in that fight not KOed.”

When you have a reach of 81 inches, it becomes very effective against much smaller fighters. Like Povetkin. Wlad is known for hiding behind his jab. And his size. I mean he has to. Povektin proved that.

Posted October 6, 2013 12:57 pm

Tomato Can, they are giants–super heavyweights–fighting in a division in which they often face much smaller opponents.

You know as well as I do that it usually hurts a helluva lot more to get hit with a big rock than a small rock.

The Klitschkos are big rocks who have often enjoyed the advantage of rolling over small rocks.

When you fight in a division that is filled with much smaller opponents, you’re gonna have the opportunity to shine more often. Even Wlad has admitted in the past that his size advantage did make a difference in his fights.

If Wlad admits it, why can’t you?

“The way Klit leaves his jab arm extended for 80% of the bout is pitiful. I have never seen a heavyweight back track and retreat as much as he does. ”

Another element of truth proving that size does matter and that the Klitschkos have often used their size advantage over their opponents because they didn’t have the skills, or chins, to do the job for them.

If the Klits weren’t pushing seven feet all and didn’t often outweigh their opponents by 20-40 pounds, they would have lost a lot more fights.

Klitschko greatness cannot be questioned. Klitschko style may not appeal to a video game society but he is a master at the art of breaking a man down. To suggest Lewis or Holyfiled are in his league at this point is absurd.

Povetkin would come in fast and with a miss grab on to Wladimir. I think there was as much grabbing from both fighter. Wladimir must be watching those later Ali Fights.

I thought this match was pretty intense, Povetkin gave it his all he was throwing power shots all night looking to get inside, hence, the clinching happening all the time.

hard fight but impressive win too.

“Klitschko is an uninspiring Champion” – Then so was Lewis, who also draped himself over tiring opponents. In fact, both fighters were taught this tactic by the same man : Steward. Every time I have trouble sleeping I just watch the Lewis/Holyfield fights and that does the trick. Thanks for all the good sleep, Lewis.

Klitschko is an uninspiring Champion, his style at HW is like a vegan diet, you can survive but you’re still hungry… The US has passed on this RANCID era of boxing LONG ago… Who really thinks tha Alexander Povetkin is a special fighter??? Not even Pivetkin believes that and that’s backed up by him running from this beating for years… I don’t blame Wlad for taking the fight it was somewhat of a loose end as Alexander was invest hyped but that was years ago… Beating OLD versions of Rahman and Boswell, struggling with Huck and rampant ducking of his biggest career payday have told us the truth… He is just ANOTHER average fighter spawned during the Klit era who would not have lasted 5 minutes during more robust periods of HW boxing…Wlad has delivered some STINKERS in his biggest bouts on paper (his opponents share some blame) but Haye and Povetkin were guys he was supposed to ruthlessly bludgeon and dispatch! Instead the ghosts of Corrie Sanders, Ross Purrity and Lamon Brewster had him clinching and playing it relatively safe… Wlads NEVER gonna have a defining bout, instead the specter of his upsets will always be discussed… Lewis was stopped 2x but shows brutality, and cruelness upon his return bouts and against fighters like Briggs, Golota and Grant… He showed a disinterest in defense against Wlads brother as an older fighter and still rallied to make his face look like the AIDS quilt… I respect Klitschkos steadiness but his true quality and Championship mettle will ALWAYS be in question…

Pratt – Fury is not on the Klitschkos level, and the brothers have had the better opposition. Fury is a club fighter who was badly hurt by a journeyman. As for taller fighters, Wlad has dominated them as well. “Tall” actually works better in Wlad’s favor, then he can fight on the outside where he use his height and range to his advantage, instead of having to do ugly inside-fighting with smaller opponents.

True that. As said before Povetkin was half if not the bigger reason of all the clinches coming in with his head first. But what most people didn’t see is Povetkin actually fought the best fight he could against WK – he didn’t get KOd (well nearly but still didn’t) and took away Wlad’s best tools for the most part and Wlad was annoyed with those clinches indeed by throwing and wrestling Pov around.

He would throw a right hand on the way in then immediately lean down and grabbed Klitschko around the waist, so Wlad leaned on him. Lewis used the same tactic. Wlad has outboxed some very dangerous fighters in his career and had a very dangerous, hard-hitting Peter starched on the canvas, as well as knocking out a huge man with his left hand only. If this fight was not aesthetically pleasing, then Povetkin shares some of the blame. Lewis had some snoozefests as well.

@Tomato Can: let the excuses begin. This is superheavyweight with no limits and you have historically silly differences in sizes – i.e. Lewis vs Tua, Valuev vs Haye etc with the smaller guy always having a chance when he gets the job done right. Also 16 pound difference means nothing in the superheavyes. WK and AP weight difference was around 7% of their bodyweight, nelglible. In superheavies 30+lb starts to play but if you’ve gained that “advantage” in fat – aganst a skillful and fit warrior it’ll show!

Super HWs (220+lb) has always been the true skill game since HW unlike any other division 1-punch can change all the game. This is where “not get hit” part of the hit-game plays a way bigger role than in any other weight class. Many superheavyes get their success with brute force (KOs and TKOs – i.e. Tua, Tyson, etc) but until they step in with a true technician they’ll be finally tested. This is what I like about HW boxing and with the upcoming contenders the state of HWs is very good if you ask me plus Wlad is 37 already with massive 60+ HW fights (imagine the wear on his body) meaning his days are numbered.

Povetkin’s only chance last night was to catch Wlad with a few wild blows on his way in. Wlad wouldn’t give him much chances with his clinching. Wlad did have too much size and power for AP though. I give Povetkin for his showing last night. No one is going to outpoint WK though…

Mo-Box, all you Klit supporters keep bringing up Lewis v Tua as being a snooze fest. Lewis did this because Tua was a dangerous and massive puncher. What’s Wlad’s excuse for employing the exact same tactic for every fight he’s been in since 2003? They can’t all be massive punchers, but he holds on like a baby does to his mother every time they get near him. Pathetic and so boring to watch.

At least FMJ uses skills to negate his opponents offence and he’s usually the much smaller competitor in his fights. Agreed, Hopkins uses the same dirty tactics as Wlad, and like Wlad is a cancer on the sport…

I remember watching the first Holyfield Bowe fight live, and being exhilarated by that fantastic fight with the 2 best boxers in the world giving it there all. I wish I could say the same for last night.
Now quite rightly, Wladimir’s excessive grabbing and leaning shares the most bleme, even Wlad himself says he could have performed better, that said Povetkin was a disappointment.The result was how I predicted, a points win for Wlad, but you would have thought the well rated Povetkin could get at least a couple of good rounds in the bag.
If supposedly one of the best fighters in the world can’t make a fight of it or at least can’t make Wlad fight, then you have to ask who can?
Sadly as long as Wlad remains champ, Holyfield vs Bowe will remain a distant memory.

Both know what? Really dont know what your gumming about. You said i was someone here called Sredmond , told you from the comment below i wasn’t. You toothing about “i know it, you know it”. My wild guess will be that your saying its untrue that Wladimir Klitchko doesn’t intentionally outweight his opponents so he can lean on them. Well i let you into a little secret Lewis used to put weight on so he can take shots better . SEE THE NEW LOOK LEWIS AFTER THE Mcall stoppage. Also the bonus was that he could use it in a fight by leaning on his opponents. But not to the extreme that we are seeing today with Wladimir Klitchko. Additional weight slows you down. It might give you power but you fatigue quickly. Go back and watch even some of Mike tyson’s clip when he was trained by Kevin Rooney and how they used to get on Mike Tyson’s ass for putting on weight even as smal anl heavyweight as he was. Fair dues Wladimir Klitchko is the champion now but its not a very good reign. A prime Tyson with his speed and positioning of angles would have chopped down this champion. Especially Wladimir Klitchko that will almost poo himself and grab whenever there is an assault. (Watch what Tyson did to Bruno 2nd fight when he was grabbing so much). On a different note dont forget the bit where danger is averted whenever there is a dangerous opponent gunning for Wladimir only for big brother Vitali to fight them quickly.

You should’ve left this line out as it made it too obvious SREDMOND. I remember seeing you say the exact same thing before. Word for word

”A guy who has to make sure he outweighs his opponent so that can use it to lean on opponents to win fights”

OBSERVER

How much did this wlad guy get for the fight again. 17-25mil. I wanted to post a comment yesterday but thought not worth it. Stopped watching this guy even from youtube downloads 5yrs ago. A champion that is too scared to take a punch. (He immediately grabs for his dear life). Bottom oine is he cant take a punch hence the excessive grabbing and leaning over. And its sad for his apologists comparing him to greats like Ali, Lewis. Even Lewis who Wladimir Klitchko modeled his career on(lets be honest, the ice cold staredown, the cool demeanour, the long range jab, and the bad habit of leaning on opponents)knew atimes you can’t be in the rain and not get wet. These Klitchkoes apologists should watch Lewis vs Grant, Lewis v Mercer, Lewis vs Holyfield1 & 2, Lewis vs Briggs, Lewis vs Morrison, Lewis vs mavrovich etc). These were fights he got hit and knew he had to fight back. Some CLOWN HERE WAS EVEN SAYING WLADIMIR KLITCHKO WSD TOLD TO TAKE IT EASY ON THE OTHER GUY, WHAT?. Laughable. How embarrassing that the boxing community had been on a high for a month (from the Mayweather vs canelo and record making attendance , fight itself etc. To a low once a Klitchko shows up. Someone should tell this guy that gloves are there to be used to protect the chin instead of his usual dirty tactic of leaning, grabbingetc. A guy who has to make sure he outweighs his opponent so that can use it to lean on opponents to win fights. What about the fighting itself, entertaining the paying fans etc. Hmmmmmm

Come on folks.. Klitschko got paid 17 000 000 $ by russian promotors.. one of the conditions was that he doesn’t knock Povetkin out .. hence he let him off the hook numerous times and mothballed his right hand almost totally.. the fight was ugly but klitschko fought smart for this type of scenario

Swedish Boxing Fan

Congratulations to Wladimir Klitschko (61-3-0 KO’s 51) for finaly defeating Alexander Povetkin (26-1-0) after have waited 4 years for the fight and knocking down Povetkin 4 times was great in the process. This was Wladimir’s 14th straight world title defence and 24th title fight in total and still counting as his title reign is so far the 3rd best in heavyweight history with 7 years as champ. Only Larry Holmes with his 7 years and 20 title defences at 2nd place and Nr.1 Joe Louis with record 11 years and 25 world title defences. BUT the fact is that Wladimir Klitschko did not fight his best performance against Alexander Povetkin and even if the scorecards unanimusly clear said 119-104 and 4 knockdowns for the credit of Klitschko, it was still not the fight all expected from the champ. All that clinching and holding just did not deliverd a world class title fight and the referee Luis Pabon was sadly a poore choise of a referee for this fight as he let Wladimir clinch that much without giving him a single warning or point reduction for that. I mean I wanted to see Wladimir doo better here and I will blame the referee a lot here for not putting some rule pressure on Wladimir as he is a very smart champion and would naturally fight in a diffrent way then BUT becouse the referee never did what he should, he could go away with it. In the end I’m very glad that Wladimir Klitschko won and defeated Povetkin but he could several times have knocked Povetkin out. Wladimir just don’t have that killer instinct to KO his opponents when he haves the chanse like Lennox Lewis was great at. I guess with-out Emanuel Stewart he mabey lacks that little extra but hopfully I’m wrong.

If Emanuel Steward was still alive, he would’ve been really mad that Wlad did not score the knockout. I’m not anti Wladimir but that was one of his sloppiest showings even in winning every round. Maybe the worst he’s looked since the Ibragimov fight back in 08.

The U.S. heavies of to taday lack the skill of the Heavies of time past. Holyfield, Bowe, Tucker, Tyson, Ali, Homles and others had great jabs, great power and great all around boxing skills. Yes at this point Heavy Weight boxing is dead in the U.S. Just look all of the new heavy weights in the U.S. are not coming out of amatuer programs. They are coming out of College football or basketball, until we can get a heavy weight to come up through a amatuer program we will not see another great heavy weight champion from the U.S.

Haye landed his best punch in the 12th and he managed to stun wlad for a few seconds but then what happened. Wlad went after his ass the rest of the round with more aggression than anytime in the fight. Haye ain’t beating wlad in a rematch would just be the same thing over again.

Posted October 6, 2013 6:29 am 


Dr. Sergey, Odessa, Ukraine

I think it is quite WRONG to say that Vlad Klichko is bad for world boxing because he has a dull style.

Vlad is a very intelligent man (PhD), and a very skilled boxer also.

He never spits upon his opponent, never insults to smb’s dignity.

I can say the same about Povetkin. Povetkin has obtained 3 university degrees, he is polite and he is a gentleman always.

So, Klichko and Povetkin give a strong example of right behaviour to young men.

The boxing style of Klichko is very safe, but american fighters had 9 years for beating Vlad and theу have not been able !

Sasha Povetkin has shown that it is quite possible to beat Vlad if Vlad’s opponent has a great strength of will.

Hence, American boxers simply have not been able to show an enough strength of will for 9 years !

Yes, from this point of view the heavy-weight division is dead in USA !

But not in the world :-))).

Popkins, Haye doesn’t stand a chance against Klit as long as the referees let him get away with constantly holding. I though it was embarrassing last night, every time he missed with a shot he would be looking to hold on, like a 2 year old does with his favourite teddy bear.

Some styles don’t mix and you get a lot of head clashes and holding etc. However, every fight involving Wlad he’s looking to grapple and the refs should start acting upon this and warning him or deducting points.

@Hollow original, it is a matter of taste. Again, he is a smart fighter. Klitschko is odd, approaches boxing from a different angle, does not want to end up like ALI, whose brain is just gone by all the blows or Tyson who is a lunatic to begin with AND definitely does not want to satisfy you and all the other “don’t know anything about boxing” people your blood thirsty lusts.

Can you give me a fight that he was in that ranks in the all time top 50 heavyweight fights? Quite worrying when you consider he’s been champ for 9 years. This is why heavyweight boxing is dead.

His style is basically illegal… Jab, hold, headlock, throw…

This was absolutely one of the worst heavy weight championship fights ever. It was boring, it was dull. Only morons or Bears or other absolute Klitshko fan can get kicks with that. There was not a single good round in whole fight. Referee did not do his job, so I hope they don’t pay any wage for him. He should have taken point from Klitshko every time when Wladimir laid on Povetkin´s back and hit Sasha. He should have never count when Wladimir threw Aleksander to canvas. Just look how Cotton act in Lewis-Tyson fight and compare.
Was Wladimir the better man? Yes, no doubt of that. Is he one of dullest fighters ever? Yes, he unquestionably belongs to top 5. Is he All Time Great? Yes, if you calculate wrestlers but the name of the game is boxing or am I wrong?

I was surprised Povetkin didn’t tap out. Wlad’s most effective weapon was that guillotine headlock he uses every time he misses a shot. It’s amazing how this manoeuvre is favoured over an inside game. You’d have thought being champion of the world for so long, he would be able to fight on the inside, rather than wrestle and basically cheat.

Never thought Povetkin stood a chance, but it amazes me that Wlad rarely gets pulled up by referees for his blatant cheating throughout the fight, even when he’s not fighting in his own backyard.

Heavyweight boxing is dead, it died many years ago sadly.

Dr. Sergey, Odessa, Ukraine

Beaver,
every champion is good for boxing :-).

The difference of styles makes the fight interesting !

I do not like the style of Vlad, but Vlad. Klichko is unconquerable for 9 years…

I meant that Povetkin has proved that Vlad can not a very agressive fighter even if this agressor is weaker and smaller.
That is, all the Klichko opponents need is to be more agressive and not be afraid of Vlad.
So, Povetkin was not afraid of Vlad and Sasha could fight Vlad for the full distance.
If somebody more big and strong will fight Vlad with the courage of Povetkin, then Vlad will be beaten.

Posted October 6, 2013 3:23 am 


Dr. Sergey, Odessa, Ukraine

Dionysus,

before this fight almost everybody was saying that Klichko will knock-out Povetkin for sure.
The matter is Povetkin’s defence is traditionnaly very bad and his defence is his attack using
his very short hands and his great strength of will.
Povetkin showed that Klichko can not knock-out a VERY ACTIVELY ATTACKING opponent even if this opponent is a smaller and a weaker fighter.

Adrian, I read Tim Witherspoon’s comments. He was from another planet. He also said that Manual Steward taught Wlad offense, where he was the trainer of defense to Wlad and to Lennox against smaller fighters. If you find my comments under that article, you would read that I said about 5 days ago that Povetkin has no chance against Wlad..

Posted October 6, 2013 2:25 am 


Farmboxer

Vlad showed that he can fight on the inside, he had Povetkin out on his feet, but in the next round, Vlad just jabbed and let Povetkin off the hook. He hurt Povetkin several times, but did not bother to knock him out. Lewis used to do the same thing, but Steward would raise Hell and kick his arse out of the corner and make him fight. Lewis held Tua the entire fight, etc., but if Steward had been in Vlad’s corner tonight, he would have raised Hell. Vlad would have knocked Povetkin out, no doubt about it. After watching Banks let Seth Mitchell off the hook and allow him to win a decision, I wonder if Vlad should hire another trainer? Perhaps Stevenson’s Kronk trainer, or even Roach.

The display of perfection and power, but during the fight it is strange movie in the R-mode.

If these two losses do not devastate Manny’s psycholgical coinfidence, then he should still be a dominating champ for awhile.

Mo-Box

Hell, I remember how much the HWs used to clinch in the past eras! This was similar, but one guys was bigger and the other came in head first into Wlad’s stomach making it actually easy to lean on him :)

Spectators always see things from the bigger man’s perspective since he represents the bigger display in the ring.

The ref saw things this way – Pov came in head first and Wlad stepped forward = clinch in awkward position, Pov with head down and Wlad while leaning on from the momentum of his step he stretches out his hand like he can do nothing about it. Ref separetes them. Repeat, repeat, repeat the same situation… He could as well give warning to Povetkin.

Hence the ref saw the clinching as a two way street which is the correct way handling this, or give warnings to both IMO.

What do you expect from heavyweights Arturo Gotti and Micky Ward?

Posted October 6, 2013 1:43 am 


Mo-Box

It takes TWO to TANGO! :)

So don’t blame only Wlad. Pov’s style and tactic made a huge factor of the outcome.

Styles make fights. It was similar to Iggy vs Wlad when also Iggy was a chamption. Wlad did gave Pov too much respect much like Iggy. It’s a slavic mentality to respect your counterpart, westerners don’t understand this ancient eastern mentality. (With less respect I believe Wlad would had finished with an impressive KO after the first knockdowns).

Anyways we all knew Povs whole gameplan was to get and work in the inside – thus although he was a smaller man we saw he moved forward the whole time and Wlad fighting backwards all the time. This tactic allowed taking away all the power from Wlad’s main offensive weapons.

Big difference between Iggy and is that Pov has a massive amateur career and can cut off ring VERY skillfully, hence Wlad’s excellent footwork had a hard time coping with Pov’s long strokes on foot on each offence. He looked like he trained to land right hand on Wlads chin just when the first clinch grab happens – you see it multiple times when he almost got Wlad from this awkward unusual position while almost in clinch.

I believe that was Pov’s main gameplan and a big factor causing all the cliches since Wlad had nowhere to go. While Wlad tried he couldn’t fight backwards effectively. In the end he settled on hoping to catch Pov with left hook just before he came for the offence, it worked at times but also not effective.

Hence Pov actually fought the best fight he could with his tactics since Wlad was largely emptied from his biggest weapons – Right hand Hand Left Hook.

And we had the fight like this, Wlad one hoping to land something quick just before Pov moves in and Pov hoping to land something when he’s in. Take a combo of those tactics, plus big respect for each other and we have a clinch fest between two Olympic champions…

Lennox was fighting time-to-time boring fights too and many of them fights… it is not a point that Wlad has to show up to every his fight. He has such an advantage and he is not dominating as a boxer. It is somehow differently. The referee in the fight should warned Wlad laying on the top of Alexander and warn Alexander not to dive under…. Tho things are disappointing: 1. Wlad is not giving even 60% of his effort on the fight and 2. He has no skills to use, like uppercuts, body shots and close up fighting moves… But Povetking, with the same moves as Haye, was bending over… If you remember in the other fight the referee warned Klichko for pushing down David and then at the end ref took one point from Haye for dropping on the floor… Point is, Haye and Povetking are not the best styles for Wlad to please us…

Can he just get all what he has and put the other boxer down??? I have been in Klit’s camp (fan) from 1999. They started with mentality “there’ll be always tomorrow”, where Vitaliy quit on his stool. Now, it is the same crap. I am thinking more about it.. That’s the reason that HBO do not want to run his fights… that’s the reason Americans cannot watch these fights. In US we have one mentality (some of us or most of us…): we have most of the time one chance, at job interview, in auditions, in many other times… This is F****G world champion’s title fight!!!!! Wlad can you put whatever you can and show up??????????

What do you expect Heavy is a dead division with a bunch of fighters\champions who would have been sparring partners for fighters in the late 80′s early 90′s. C level fighters battling D level fighters dark ages but it is what it is and until a new group of skilled heavy lions come along we are stuck with bordom.

most of the posts are angry at Klichko. I agree that Wlad MUST box and give everything to put up a show. That’s what we all expect. However, when the other fighter is diving in fast and with one punch and then what? Povetkin did not do much either. From the other side, Povetkin was good not letting Wlad to blast him with his jabs from the distance (compare to the other boxers). So, here you have it, from distance Wlad was not effective as he could, from the close up fight Alexander was not good… It was boring defensive fight, even it looked like Povetkin was more at work.

you can’t let one or two ugly fights determine a fighter is dull. Wlad had two boring fights Iggy and this one, he was ugly this fight. If you ever saw Mercer you couldn’t say he doesn’t have the potential to be exciting, like I said Ali and many others have had the ugly and boring fights. There is not question I thought he fought horribly today style wise. He looked disinterested and less balenced than normal, and he did do the Ali clinch crap.

He didn’t need to use his jab in this particular fight. Povetkin was tough, but too small. Wlad usually approaches a fight very cautiously, but he was bullying and tossing this guy around like a rag doll, almost like was not taking it seriously and for once fighting on the inside. The leaning is classic Steward style, as Lewis used to drape himself over smaller opponents to wear them down.

Bears is NOW trying to OVERSELL Povetkin when not so long ago he was BASHING him and hyping Price as a future Klit opponent that would bring some legacy points.. Bears saying Povetkin (who Haye would CRUSH) is “second or 3rd best in the world” GRAPHICALLY ILLUSTRATES THE historic depths the HW division has fallen to… This fight made sense but we all knew Povetkin was bringing NOTHING to the ring and Wlads spoiler tactics as the bigger man only turn off possible fans of the division..Oh well who really cares Cotto is back winning!!

You have to get warned and points taken away before you are DQ’d, so no he should not have been DQ’d, but he did nt look as good as he has the last 5-6 yrs and the ref should be DQ’d for failing to take points away early and losing control og the fight.

Supreme court if one ugly fight kept a fighter from being great Ali would be out of the running. I actually stopped watching boxing for a while because some of Ali’s fights were so ugly and he held so much. Wlad is a great chamipion and over time he will break most of the records. He stunk this time, and the Iggy fight, but most his other fights have been lessons in the sweet science.

After watching the fight again I am convinced that Banks has to go. Wlad needs someone that can teach him something new and push him harder. He is just too much better, but seems to lost some of the balance and positiong he used to have in the last 3-4 years. I also hope this ref gets a good lecture about what to allow in a fight. He was disgraceful, and allowed Wlad to blow this huge opportunity on HBO again. Wlad looked like Banks in there, had the power, had the talent, but just couldn’t cut loose. It is like he digressed 5 yrs in this fight. So diassapointed in one of greatest champions of all time.

Haymon’s flagship fighter, of course, is Floyd Mayweather.

On June 24, 2013, at a media sitdown before the kick-off press conference for Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez, Leonard Ellerbe (CEO of Mayweather Promotions) told reporters, “We’ve put in place a mechanism where all Mayweather Promotions fighters will do mandatory blood and urine testing 365-24-7 by USADA.”

USADA declined a request from this writer for comment on the truth of Ellerbe’s contention. Al Haymon also declined comment for this article. And questions remain regarding the issue of whether or not, several years ago, Mayweather “A” samples tested positive on three occasions.

VK didn’t HAVE to survive.. The fight was OVER.. You go to the scorecards.. Vitali was winning on ALL cards — Unanimous Technical Decision, end of 6 rounds of 12.. Cuts caused by holding and hitting with the edge, heel, and palm of the glove. The initial eye cut was caused by a thumb strike. Easy to see on the replay. The other cuts that stopped the fight were ripped open by illegal blows.

Haymon also represents Adrien Broner.

Broner, Antonio DeMarco, Golden Boy (Broner’s promoter), and the United States Anti-Doping Agency signed a contract for USADA testing prior to the November 17, 2012, Broner-DeMarco fight. But according to DeMarco, he wasn’t tested by USADA for that bout, nor was Broner.

Then, on June 22, 2013, Broner fought Paulie Malignaggi.

“I wanted VADA testing,” Malignaggi recalls. “And I was told, ‘No, we won’t do VADA. If you insist on VADA, there won’t be a fight.’ Finally, I said, ‘F— it. I’m getting seven figures.

Referencing that issue, Dan Rafael stated during a November 21, 2012, online chat, “I need to see proof before I accuse somebody of something so serious. What is fact, however, is that the settlement in the Pacquiao-Mayweather lawsuit happened after the Pacquiao camp tried to get Mayweather’s USADA testing records. So maybe where there is smoke there is fire.”

So here’s a suggestion. Why doesn’t Floyd Mayweather enroll in VADA’s 24-7-365 program? And let him state publicly, “Any fighter who wants to be eligible to fight me must enroll in VADA’s 24-7-365 program NOW.”

And let’s take it a step further. In addition to Mayweather, Broner, Quillin, Berto, and Love, Al Haymon currently represents Danny Garcia, Devon Alexander, Lucas Matthysse, Marcos Maidana, Leo Santa Cruz, Keith Thurman, Austin Trout, Omar Figueroa, Gary Russell Jr, Sakio Bika, Josesito Lopez, Erislandy Lara, Shawn Porter, Errol Spence, Chris Arreola, Seth Mitchell, and Deontay Wilder.

Let’s assume that all of these fighters are clean. Let them all enter a 24-7-365 VADA testing program. I can’t speak for anyone else. But that would certainly make a believer out of me.

Al and Floyd have enough money to fund it.

It’s easy to talk the talk. Let’s see who walks the walk.

Mike Tyson was one of the BIGGEST draws in the history of boxing Lewis made around 35 mill to face him and would have made more in a rematch of course he explored
The possibility… Vitali cannot sell out a high school gym at this point and the Klits are fighting rematches against guys like Thompson for relative peanuts.. Reality is that Vitali was a last minute replacement who fought hard for a few rounds then starting getting his face peeled like an orange..That said Klitschko has NOT been able to create a moment or fight with real cache thus him being stuck in the past… Lewis is pushing 50 and the fact is Vitali didn’t have what it takes..

Wilder is the only threat to Klitchco. Its a very remote threat at that though. However, at least he has the size and power that the miracle shot to the glass jaw is somewhat feasible. Since Klitchco will never lose on points this seems like the only real challenger out there.

Like it or lump it, you’re a turd. He won from a cut stoppage. Don’t start misleading with your idiocy. He wasn’t pushihing Vitali back and for the record, Arreola was chasing Vitali the whole fight even though Vitali beat him to shreds. The truth is that Vitali pretty much technically made Lewis look worst than in any other fight Lewis has had in his career.

Anonymouse.., Wladimir wasn’t going to knock Povetkin out… He tried like a SOB to knock him TFO. He loaded leaping left hooks to get him like he did Chambers. Maybe with Emmanuel Steward riding his ass in the corner he would have knocked Povetkin out.. A KO just wasn’t mandatory.. He had every minute of every round locked up like a drum.

But I can still hear Manny Steward screaming at Lennox Lewis to KO Mike Tyson, “Knock this MFer out.. Get that MFer out of here… he’s DANGEROUS.” … Steward screamed at Wladimir to knock out Chambers after Wladimir won every single round and it was the last round. Emmanuel shouted, “He’s another Ibragimov.. Don’t let him escape like that MFer.. We gotta knock this MFer out in this round.”

I’ll never understand it, but that was Emmanuel Steward.

Any brain dead person with one weak eye would have scored this fight 119-104… So were these officials good enough for that??? Yeah. You can’t tell unless you had them judge the Mayweather-Alavarez fight.

This fight was very interesting because Povetkin used a very smart strategy of slipping inside and throwing left hooks and short overhand rights.. He couldn’t get the right hand off but never stopped trying.. He was dangerous at all times. Povetkin was an undefeated World Heavyweight Champion and Olympic Gold Medal winner, so the result was pretty amazing.

Wladimir’s jab was a bazooka. He couldn’t nail Povetkin with his right or leaping left hooks like he hit Chambers with. He sure as Hell wanted to flatten Povetkin and tried like crazy to get his hook on him.

W. Klitschko is a dominant champion, but I’d rather count the blades of grass on a football field than watch one of his fights. Everyone knows he has weak chin. To counteract that, Emmanuel Steward trained Klitschko to not fight inside, to tie up/clinch his opponents instead. While it’s effective, it can turn a fight into a dreadful Hopkins-esque clinchfest. To have received so few warnings in this fight was a travesty. It’s not cheating (as some are suggesting). It’s terrible refereeing. It’s an effective tactic that allows Klitschko to keep his opponents on the outside so he can use his best weapon, his sledgehammer jabs. Still, how many fights that feature 4 knockdowns are that awful to watch? Klitschko’s reign seems like it’ll last forever. Still, I am not a fan.

I wouldn’t rule out something like that. Even though it sounds silly. It’s symbolic. Like beig beaten but not giving up, down but not out, never say die. Not to mention lots of business involved, Povetkin being laid out would shutter business on many levels mainly because he would not be as big of a draw in the future. But since he put up a valiant effort and kept getting up and showing heart and fought back till the end, people will continue to pay and watch because he “always has a chance and fights till the end”.

Klitschko is a wooden stiff bore who now has he ability to put people asleep in their chairs during a bout. The reason he wins fights is nothing to do with boxing talent and everything to do with holding grabbing leaning and forearms to the head. He a bore and so is his brother i cant wait till he is exposed for the bore he is. I thought Haye might have ended the tedium but he just made sad excuses and coulnt get around the leaning and holding. I long for the Hollyfield, Bowe, lewis era there was excitement and talent every fight. Now all thats left in the heavyweight division is jab, jab lean, step back jab jab right hand lean. Boring!

JoeKidd, who was the “facker” :-). It is very simple and I repeat. Povetkin has no skills for this level. NO SKILLS! He did not offer anything!!! He was bouncing with his head not to get clocked and was coming in with one right upper-hand and ducking his head under. EVERY TIME!!! Once he is in hugging and loving position, Kilchko, being the bigger guy and having no inside skills, had nothing to offer but to lien on. So, we have a world champ without inside fighting skills. But I am blaming Klichko for not using uppercuts, body shots and combinations. However, Haye, Povetking and Chagaev are too fast and too dangerous. Fighting them is very difficult.

His non-stop crouching and ducking to get inside and underneath K, to get punches in from close range and to avoid as much time as possible away from K’s jabs and right hand was evident from the beginning to the end of the fight. If you watch a replay count the times P does this or record how much time he spent doing this. It’s outrageous. K or any other fighter’s only option with that strategy is to lean on and counteract that ploy. It’s pretty simple, no P crouching, no K leaning, end of story. Don’t blame or bad-mouth K. P’s tactic of crouching and spending most of the fight underneath and away from K’s punches took away from the fight and ultimately saved him from an embarrassing and tremendous beating. Give K credit and respect.

Wlad tried to beat the living hell out of Wach, was he being to defensive then. Even against Pianetta , who basically did the same as Povetkin, he closed him out when it was time. Pov was a drunk and Wlad would just look at him, no right hands a few jabs clinching, push him down rinse and repeat. If he wasn’t influenced, WK was just lazy in this fight then.

to all conspiracy bloggers… there would be people, who can tell Wlad not to finish Povetkin, but there would be other, not less powerful people, to tell him otherwise… The problem is that Wlas was toooo defensive and couscous that does not make this fight a title fight, especially a unification title fight… At least, Povetkin came to fight, yes he was not good enough, but he was trying… Wlad was trying NOT to get into the fight… Wlad needs to rethink his boxing position. Hire a trainer with offensive mentality.

The brothers are both multilingual and degreed. They are both well aware of the long-term effects of concussive blows; therefore, any “fight” in which they are engaged is one in which the primary concern is that they are not damaged.

Guys as someone who lived there most of my life, I guarantee you, Wlad was TOLD not to KO Povo no matter what, it is Putin’s birthday today and Russians cannot have that at this time. Wlad is not a madman to ignore a warning if he got one.

Boring fight like always but right now the referee was horrible. Even though Klitchko would win without that, he should have been disqualified or penalized very quickly for his pushing, leaning…

I respect the Klitchkos but fighting like that will not make him (yes specially Vladimir) remembered as a great great.

By the way, respect to Povetkin, he would have been a more dangerous opponent with a good referee.

Ali and Foreman were masters at holding ( FMJ as well ), shoving down and pushing yet never had points taken away, or warned. That aside, Klitschko demonstrated some awesome subtle technical aspects…his power is obviously a major deterent.

Too much clinching and hugging, but Wlad did the job in the end. He had too much size and power for Povetkin, but he should have got AP out of there. Wlad doesn’t want to take chances though. Age and wear and tear will beat Wlad before any of those fellers out there.

I think some of the european bloggers are right. The only reason Wladimir would not use his right was out of respect for mother Russia or his hand was hurt. If that was not true, I think his realm is coming to an end. I don’t care how big he is, if all he can now do is jab and lean, he’s in for some deep trouble. Emmanual Stewart is rolling over after that fight today. I just hope Wladimir hasn’t forgotten everything he was taught to be a more fan friendly fighter.

Povekin is fast and strong. Haye is the same. How do you fight these guys when you are tall and heavy? You cannot expect Wlad to be an idiot and run after Povetkin. But I agree that Wlad should use uppercuts and other tactics to make this fight a boxing fight. Povetkin should be doing his part also differently, running into Klichko and bending over without any punches is not what you expect from the title fight…

Wlad is boxing like an aging Hopkins or Ali, using the dirty stuff, all the tricks the ref will allow… and he allowed a lot. Still, Wlad put some new wrinkles in his game with the uppercut and more use of the lead left hook.

Wlad was clearly hurt in the 11th round by a good bodyshot and pov got to his face in th 12 too….none of that would have happened if wlad had just finished him after 7th round instead Povetkin got two rounds to recover and it ws clear that he was back in the 10th round…Could have been a fatal mistake…And I agree if Wlad doesn’t want to pull the trigger he needs someone with a headphone shouting it to him in his corner.

Cognitor

First, I am a Klitschko supporter. Second, I know when I’ve seen a crappy fight. We have witnessed what will happen in Wladimir’s future fights with the loss of Emmanuel Stewart. Banks is too introverted to be in the corner. Emmanuel would have said after the 4th round, go out there throw a right hand and knock this guy out now! I’ve never seen a HW so scared of letting a punch get close to his head. Wladimir’s holding and pressing down on Povetkin would be considered a lousy move even in MMA. Lenox used the move but at least Lenox would punch while pulling that stunt. For all of his Mike Tyson talk, Povetkin was the furthest thing from a Mike Tyson. One of the worse HW championship match I have ever seen.

The most frustrating part about the fight (and HW division in general these days) is that, although Wlad hugged Povetkin like they were going to the Prom together, the truth is Povetkin did not have the skills to negate those tactics. Has any one of today’s HWs heard of a body punch or a combination punch. Disgraceful!

Posted October 5, 2013 5:11 pm 


al bundy

It was a horrible fight… I expected Wlad’s complete dominance. I also expected for Povetkin bending and Wlad would use uppercut. Wlad did not use much of anything, such as punching combinations. However, you cannot put all the blame on Wlad. He is tall. Povetkin is small and jerky. It would be hard chasing Povektin. Plus, Povetkin was closing in without throwing any punch, or trying to with lowering his head and throwing overland. Both fighters were in the circle of insanity – trying the same thing, which does not work, over and over… BUT WHAT DID YOU EXPECT FROM THE FIGHT, WHERE ONE BOXER IS MUCH BIGGER AND THE SECOND IS MUCH SMALLER?

Dan: Pov came lunging in trying to throw overhand hooks with his head down….And clearly wanted to hold afterwards…If you wanna see walking down and using your weight…There has to be forward movement from the bigger guy(Wlad) which there wasn’t….You can’t really walk someone down and use weight as an advantage if you’re standing still, which wlad did.

What was Ref Luis Pabon waiting for? Not one warning to Klit for pushing down on Povetkin. The fight was a bore mainly because Kilt would throw a punch jump in clinch and put all his weight on Povetkin. Povetkin was there to put on a good fight, Klit was there to win lousy.

Wlad won every round bar the one he got deducted.
Wlad too good for Povetkin, but the ref should have penalized Wlad much earlier in the fight, it wouldn’t have changed the result, but might have allowed Povetkin to win a couple of rounds outright.
Not a pretty fight to watch,even those that maintain that Wlad is “exciting” must surely concur.

SO THIS IS WHATS CALLED A GREAT HW TODAY,THROW A JAB AND HOLD ALL NIGHT,BEYOND A JOKE.

Point reduction Klitschko for shoving his opponent.

Agreed it’s very very odd

I’m very dissapointed with Klitschko. He has not fired off ANY combinations all night. He’s just jabbing grabbing and leaning like hell. He’s really rough-housed Povetkin. This is is like the way he ruined his rematch with Peter when he could have scored an early KO. Povetkin tried to make the fight he’s been brave and unsettled Wlad early. When you see this you start to understand why Haye refused to ever be held. It just kills your back and stops you being dangerous.

Pov looks like a horror-movie…whoa…He shaked wlad there…

Posted October 5, 2013 4:39 pm 


scottyboy

Klitschko is very dominant and is clearly winning but a good finisher would have got Povetkin out of there by now. He is just so easy to hit. His head and feet movement are both completely gone.

Count the times Vladimir used his right… 0
Something’s wrong, I guess.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:38 pm 


Big Al

I wouldn’t mind one of those “robbery” decisions in povetkin’s favor. only to rid us of klitschko if nothing else.

Memo to Vladimir K: YOU ALSO GOT A RIGHT HAND!!!!!!!!!!

Pov looks like he’s recovered in the 10th…Wlad should have finished him…But won’t matter…

Posted October 5, 2013 4:36 pm 


mayweather 86

I predicted ab 8th round stoppage for wlad, but he seriously looks like a different fighter in this one and not in a good way. He’s won every round tho

Kiltschiko is getting away with murder tonight. All he has done is hold and the ref has only warned him once.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:35 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

Crazy…..This should have been over… Vlad is toying with him…

Posted October 5, 2013 4:34 pm 


Lenin

Klitschkos NEEDS to knock Povetkin out. You never know what could happen in Russia going to the score cards…

Posted October 5, 2013 4:32 pm 


Lenin

Looks like Klitschko smashed Povetkin’s nose.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:31 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

Next round is the last…Povetkin left all he had out there in the 8th….He can barely walk.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:30 pm 


mayweather 86

Wow, a lot of apologies going around for klit. Very poor fight. Maybe starting to show his age

Posted October 5, 2013 4:30 pm 


Lenin

Round 8 was lame. Klitschko should have ended the fight in round 7.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:29 pm 


Big Al

lenin, i never condone dirty tactics, but sometimes the situation calls for it. povetkin needs to intentionally hit him in the balls to get some respect.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:27 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

Povetkin is all in…

Posted October 5, 2013 4:27 pm 


Lenin

Big Al, that’s kind of obvious. You’re blinded by it.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:26 pm 


Lenin

Klitschko had the chance to finish Povetkin but didn’t use it. That is a mistake.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:26 pm 


Big Al

I f’ing hate klitschko. dirty mofo.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:25 pm

Hey finally a little action in the 7th. Holding is not an allowable defensive tactic or it shouldn’t be.

Big Al, or from Povetkin for ducking deep and using his elbows? Povetkin in deep trouble now. And he’s down.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:24 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

60 – 53 Wlad is punishing pov….The leaning comes because of the way pov is fighting….Watch who does the forward motion to see who’s at fault…

Posted October 5, 2013 4:24 pm 


Pantsula

Povetkin shud hit Klitoris on his ball. What the fuccckk is wrong with him with all the holding and leaning!! Ref is horrible!! One of the worst fights I’ve watched!

Posted October 5, 2013 4:23 pm 


Big Al

disgrace that klitschko is allowed to do that. its not even tying your opponent up, it’s just grabbing him and holding him down when hes in range.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:23 pm 


huckster

how can anyone be considered winning a fight when all the person does is tie them up. povetkin is making this fight.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:22 pm 


doc

This a freakin hugging match! I have Povetkin up 4-2 after 6.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:22 pm 


scottyboy

Klitschko has done his homework. He knows that Pov’s only hope of landing anything big is to slip inside under the jab so Wlad is using his left hook, often leading with it as Pov comes in.

Woad is lucky we have no more Holyfields or Lewises anymore.

Bonecrusher Smith is watching this saying “…daaaamnn….”

Posted October 5, 2013 4:21 pm 


Big Al

why aren’t they taking points from klitscko for holding and leaning ontop of povetkin?

Posted October 5, 2013 4:20 pm 


BigMikeTampa

Lenin- LOL!

Posted October 5, 2013 4:19 pm 


scottyboy

I have to say that this is a terrible fight to watch. I don’t think it’s either boxer’s fault but povetkin’s plan is obviously to try and get inside which means he is trying to time the klitschko jab and slip underneath. Wlad is then tying him up and leaning. I can’t see that changing as this is the only hope he has of landing anything.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:18 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

Judge needs to stop the ducked head from pov….Let’s see some boxing…50- 44 vlad..

Posted October 5, 2013 4:18 pm 


Lenin

Akinwande was much more aggressive than Klitschko. You connot compare them.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:17 pm 


mayweather 86

Wlad needs to be penalized seriously

Posted October 5, 2013 4:17 pm 


Lenin

Vladimir got more than once Povetkin’s elbow into his face.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:17 pm 


BigMikeTampa

Is Kiit doing his impression of Akiwande?

Missed the first three rounds, any punches in them?

Posted October 5, 2013 4:16 pm

OUCH! Big hand by Klitschko, but Povetkin took it.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:16 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

40 – 35 …Pov is eating them jabs…

Posted October 5, 2013 4:14 pm 


Lenin

4th round also to Klitschko. Povetkin is trying to hurt Vladimir with bodyshots, but Vladimir simply takes them and rams his jab into Povetkin’s face.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:14 pm 


Lenin

Povetkin is eating a lot of jabs, but he sometimes lands some shots on Vladimir’s well trained body.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:13 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

Pov – is getting jabbed to death….30-26 vlad

Posted October 5, 2013 4:11 pm

Povetkin fighting the smartest fight he can

He looked out of shape at the weigh in

Posted October 5, 2013 4:10 pm

Tell ya what, povetkin impressing me so far. He isn’t winning but he is making wlad look very uncomfortable

Posted October 5, 2013 4:10 pm 


Lenin

Slower 3rd round. Is Povetkin gasing?

Posted October 5, 2013 4:09 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

20 – 17 vlad…I think pov slipped more than he was hurt though….

Posted October 5, 2013 4:08 pm 


Marty c

Keep it coming lemin I have money on this and no tv coverage

Posted October 5, 2013 4:07 pm 


Lenin

Round 2 also to Vlad. Povetkin’s wild boxing style is putting pressure on Vlad, but lets Povetkin open to get hurt.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:06 pm 


Lenin

And Povetkin got hurt.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:05 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

Vlad wins 1st round…Pov tries to match-spoil….So far theres one truth though Pov is faster than vlad but in order to use that speed …He’s gonna have to take a beating.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:03 pm 


Lenin

Povetkin is trying hard and actually landed two good shots, but Klitschko landed more good, hard jabs.

Posted October 5, 2013 4:02 pm

Thanks again, Soothsayer–it’s a lil’ slow but it’s working!

No Putin because he doesn’t want to witness the public execution of his friend! Here he cannot fake to be a hero – if Putin would enter the ring, the K Bros would sort of nuke him.

Posted October 5, 2013 3:48 pm

And here he comes: Vladimir Klitschko. And I love the Red Hot Chili Peppers song!

Posted October 5, 2013 3:47 pm

And no Putin at ringside…

Posted October 5, 2013 3:45 pm

Okay, one of the biggest questions has been answered: Povetkin actually entered the ring!

Posted October 5, 2013 3:44 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

This is actually a very good fight-promo they’re airing….All of the BS usually found in american promos was gone…Just two strong men respectful but ready to fight…

Posted October 5, 2013 3:43 pm

wladimir ko win round 6 or 7 is my forecast. if povetkin shells up and goes defensive round 10 or 11

Posted October 5, 2013 3:34 pm

Thanks, Soothsayer!

Posted October 5, 2013 3:30 pm

Alonz – on national telly here…But only the title fight…I believe most tv-stations have only bought 1 fight and not a package of fights…So keep updating.

This is a legitimate Champion vs Ranked Contender match up – Many of the top 20 guys have faced each other over the last year or so or are scheduled to do so over the not too distant future – The ONLY guy who refuses to fight anyone near the top 50 is Wilder!!

Posted October 5, 2013 3:28 pm 


Killing Moon The Soothsayer

Have Wlad by ko R7 …But will be interesting to see how he’ll react to 15.000 screaming russian fans….Can’t remember a fight , where there’s so many against him…

Posted October 5, 2013 3:25 pm 


Lenin

Vlad wins by (T)KO within 8 rounds. Povetkin will be game for two or three rounds, then he will be broken. That’s my prediction.

Posted October 5, 2013 3:19 pm 


punch

Maternak was out of his element, he was trying too hard instead fighting on the counter he was just walking into some of Grigory’s punches and actually his defence wasn’t as tight as I thought. Anyway, the better man won. Congrats to both as they lived up to the hype.

Posted October 5, 2013 3:06 pm 


arturo gatti

Masternak got glassy chin, horrible footwork and decent power. Drozd was better

Posted October 5, 2013 3:05 pm 


Brazilian Boxing Fan

I was correct in all of my predictions so far… Chagaev, Chakhkiev and Drozd won… my final prediction for today is that Wlad will beat Povetkin. If I am wrong, that´s part of life.

Posted October 5, 2013 3:02 pm

Grigory Drozd vs Masternak is definately going to be the fight of the Night. Great fight absolutely great fight.

both chaggys won that’s good

Posted October 5, 2013 2:26 pm 


Brazilian Boxing Fan

I am very happy about Ruslan Chagaev´s victory over Jovo Pudar, because a buddy of mine, Raphael Zumbano, was robbed by the judges against Pudar. I hope Chagaev fights Zumbano next. I am confident Zumbano can beat him.
