@ dwc ; this must stand for ; DimWittedChild ! . You quite simply have NO clue what you’re talking about . I have NO idea why you found it necessary to point out to me that soccer was a ” world sport ” ?! Having played it professionally for 12 years , I am well aware of it ! I
asked you to name just FIVE countries , who had viable,
professional , boxers and your answer was ; American , British , Italian ” and so forth ” …. It’s exactly
that ; ” so forth ” , that I’m talking about , it’s the REST of the World ! I’m asking you to give me five countries with
viable , PROFESSIONAL H/Wts , and you give me the : Olympics ! You want to argue Olympics , fine ; tell me how
many DIFFERENT nationalities were AWARDED medals in
boxing in the last Olympics ? I bet you didn’t know it was
25 different nationalities ! In the seventies there weren’t
even 25 nationalities that PARTICIPATED in boxing , let alone WIN medals ! You are ALSO full of beans about Japan and China taking part in boxing ; if you were smarter you’d know, that BOTH Japan AND China have ranked boxers , just not in the H/W division . This is my last post to you , since I’ve always make it a point to never argue with an idiot ; he brags you down to his level and beats you with experience !

Back in the 60s and 70s the iron curtain coutries couldnt compete in the pros on a world stage…BUT they had amatures who were really pro in the sence that they were their best fighters and that was their job behind the iron curtain…to box,just like the pros did in the free world.Therefore at the time when guys like Ali..Foreman..ect…won gold medals…they beat the best those coutries had to offer…at the time.So in that sence it was not unlike what was going on in the pro scence..execpt the free world countries had a disadvantage because those guys were truely amatues..unlike the pro like fighters behind the curtain.Thats why I laugh when people think if the wall was down at the time the russians would have been hvwt. champs…when in reality there best couldnt beat a amature Foreman or Ali or Tillman…AT THAT TIME when the best from the iron curtain countries were pro in every sence of the meaning…except on paper.

One more point,I worked in north Africa years ago,seen some decent amature fighters from there and theres alot of big strong arab kids from there.When Povetkin won his gold medal that year,there were I belive 5 kids from Egypt that won medals in boxing.But afterwards didnt really hear from them or if they turned pro…because boxing is not big in Egypt,like it is in many other countries,and money isnt poured into a boxing programe.At the same time we dont see hvwts coming from Japan or China overall.Now lets say in 15 years from now we see hvwts coming from north africa and Japan getting titles,and they say the reason you didnt see guys like us getting belts in 2014 is because boxing wasnt a world wide sport,but today it is..would that be true?..ofcourse not,because boxing was always a world wide sport overall…its just that some countries are more into it,and put money into good boxing programes…and if north africa for example starts putting money and programes together and produces champs…and boxing goes on the slide say in the U.K. that dosent mean it wasnt a world sport in 2014,just because the landscape changes.Boxing rings could be found all over the world in the last 100yrs its just some countries took to it more then others…thats all.

k2fan…No baseball is not a world sport,but soccer and boxing are world sports.Boxing was in the olympics,when the iron curtain was up…many countries competed against each other even the iron curtain countries competed.The best fighters from behind the curtain(who were really pro in the sence that was their job)faced off against the Americans..British..Italians..so forth…therefore you wouldnt call that a world event??Its not like the iron curtain countries didnt send their best boxers to face Ali…Foreman..ect..Ofcourse its different now in many ways because of how the world changed…but you cant rewrite history,it was what it was at the time..but boxing was still a world wide sport then and now.

Charr is nowhere.., He’s in a lower position than George Groves. Povetkin didn’t have much respect for him and didn’t think he’d have a bit of trouble with him.

Charr also wasn’t trained or ready for a fight of this magnatude.. He’s bratty and mouthy like Groves..

The best cure for brattiness is a crushing KO loss. Shuts you up real good.

After looking at the ko… Mind you I believe Charr was hurt most likely povetkin would’ve stopped him anyway but Damn, the ref didn’t even give him a SPLIT second to see if he was ok or to see if Charr was able to bounce back. Just called it off immediately as he hit the canvas, no count, no nothing. I’m not going to say something stupid or say this stoppage was premature but again , Damn at least count to 2 , look at the guys eyes THEN call it off.

Turb0-H@mster doing science

The weakest era in HW boxing was actually I think the 1970′s.

When you have 3-4 between 5″11-6″3 US fighters, with poor technique, passing the belt around like a merry go around that is weak.

It is the sign of a weak non global sport when that happens.

George Foreman has admitted that Lewis and Klitschkos would have smoked his boots any time.

If Wlad is so boring, why does he stop most his opponents? He is an artist at his game and not dumb enough to fight a style not tailored to his strengths. He learned his lesson against Sanders and Brewster. Pace yourself and soften your opponent up before you take him out. Boxing is hit and not get hit and right now Ward, Wlad, Floyd, and Hopkins are the masters of this art, like them or not.

Posted May 31, 2014 11:24 pm

Cooper it is obvious you never even watched Wlad fight. Wlad actually doesn’t hug or tie up fighters that don’t come in low on him. Ever see him against Mercer or anybody else before Steward the man was all action destruction. But Your too ignorant and jealous to even accept the facts, so you never will. Haters can never appreciate someone better than their heros.

I think Wilder has extreme potential due to his physical attributes, just like the klits, he now needs to be really tested.

Dont forget, wilder is going toward his prime, klit will probably soon start to go down, happens to every boxer with age.

Wilder will do something yeah… He hasn’t been matched that well, or moved that well, but the raw talent in there. Everybody knows this who knows anything about Boxing.

If Deontay controls his emotions and doesn’t get into trouble with the law, he’s going to make an impact on the division. He’s a little edgy. Not like Ike Ibeabuchi… but an edge is there he could go over.

Wilder needs rounds, that’s for sure… That’s what the liakhovich and Scott fights were supposed to be for… to get him past the 4th round.

I still like him against Stiverne. I just think it’s going to be another early night … Jennings, Glazkov, and Fury would give Wilder a bunch of rounds. He needs a couple fights like that.

I actually don’t like Povetkin for Wilder.. Povetkin has so much amateur and pro experience that he can find a seam if it’s there.. Haye as well.

Posted May 31, 2014 6:29 pm

Wilder has some real advantages as people have said. I feel he has a chance to be an excellent fighter, but really he has only KO’d 3 people that haven’t been KO’d before, compare that to Wlads 18 KO’s of fighters that had never been stopped before. Which by the way is twice as many as his brother and Surprisingly Holmes, the next two champions closest to him. With the fact these fighters have been KO’d before it is hard to say what will happen when he gets in there with some of the better fighters. With his hand speed and reach he may well be able to hurt even the best, time will tell. My biggest question is his ability to take punishment, not his power.

Wilder exemplifies one major problem with boxing. Fighters don’t have to earn a shot at the title. Padded records and loads of hype. Im not anti wilder as an individual but i am anti his right to the ranking he has because he simply hasn’t earned it. I hope he can be a live contender but until he fights a series of live opponents we are left wondering. So prove you warrant the shot at any world title by beating someone who is breathing

Liakhovich was on the decline? He’d was fighting once a year and had lost 4 of his last 6. He’d been stopped in 3 of them, 2 via brutal KO, and those 2 wins came against no marks. He even took a terrible beating in one of them before finding the bunch to bail himself out. He was nothing more than a human punch bag.

people knocking wlider don’t know boxing. height, size, reach, punching range, strength, speed, and power are all big advantages.

liakhovich was on the decline, but he still went a lot of rounds with everyone else. scott was beating chisora when he got a quick count, and he drew with glazkov. jennings predicted scott would score a staggering upset.

wilder has had good coaching and many rounds sparring with wladimir klitschko, david haye, and other top fighters who have given him tips on how to improve. not every boxer gets opportunities to work with the top guys in their division.

Screwy louie, I never put anything in ink I do not belive.
I can only assume your comment is in regards to wilder after reviewing your pro-wilder post.

Wilder to me is like trying to guess how many pounds of air is in a tire without an air gauge, because all the bums and nobody s he has fought so I can only base my decision on his observable talents in which are few to none outside of what appears to be power.

He windmills and looks very amateur in his over all boxing ability, average footwork so on and so forth, I dont need to list everything.

Bermain is a solid fighter and is that gauge in some respect to really see where wilder is.

Im open to learning something new and or discovering if wilder really has talent, even becoming a fan, so it appears that maybe you should question if you really belive what your writing not me.

the video shows charr throwing a 3 punch combination by rote, bing, bing, bing, automatic. povetkin knocked him out with a 5 punch combo, but each punch was selected in real time as the opening manifested itself. huge difference in expertise.

Posted May 31, 2014 1:12 pm 


TARK

Wladimir Klitschko is still the only one to KO Fast Eddie Chambers, whose only previous loss in 36 fights was to Povetkin. Chambers-Povetkin was a competitive fight.

Povetkin is much improved defensively, and in his overall physical condition since the Chambers fight, which was about 6 years ago or so. Chambers seems worse if anything. He doesn’t look right physically.

Wlad won every round by a wide margin, and then caught Chambers with a lightning short left hook that put him down for a thousand. One of the most devastating KO’s I’ve ever seen.

Well Eddie, let’s see Perez Mago, or even Arreolla Stiverne was good, and a number of others depending on how far back you want to go. Basically when the contenders are fighting each other we get good fights, because they have the same skill levels like back in the 70′s. Unfortunately the Bros are so much better than each other the fights aren’t competitive.

Povetkin’s in the mix after this. His strength and conditioning looked much better than against Huck and Chagaev. But also Charr didn’t look ready for a major fight. Maybe that’s why he kept his T on at the weigh-in.

I think Povetkin can take guys like Perez, Browne, Takam, Solis, Ruiz, Stiverne, Chisora, Thompson, Cunningham, Price, and Ustinov. I’m wouldn’t be thrilled with those fights. Maybe Stiverne, but I believe he beats him easy. He’s faster fisted and more skilled.

I’d like to see him fight Glazkov, Jennings, Fury, Pulev, or Wilder. They’re competitive

If Povetkin brings his A game, he beats ANYONE not named Wladimir. It’s that simple. I expect Stiveren to nurse his belt against other American/British challengers for the foreseeable future. Pulev, Povetkin, and Klitschko are the top 3 in the division with Tony Thompson, and Tyson Fury underneath. Wilder, Joshua, Stiverne, etc are just lucky at the moment at that Vitali hung it up. If he didn’t, then Vitali would still have the belt.

Povetkin was way below par against Huck (who like the other guy said is a good fighter) because he was obviously badly out of shape. How many fighters in history have lost or looked bad to lesser fighters due them not taking their opponent seriously enough or being out of shape? The list is almost endless never mind the amount who’ve actually lost or got KO’d. Povetkin’s amateur career is ridiculous and he’s done very nicely as a pro despite his lazy habits and hooking up with the career wrecker Teddy Atlas.

Fighters are allowed bad performances. Anyone who keeps harping on about the Huck fight obviously has an agenda and an axe to grind. They’re probably Klitschko haters using him to belittle Wlad.

Posted May 30, 2014 6:49 pm

Shows what an in-shape Povetkin can do. If the Klits didn’t exist he would be champ (Pov vs. Chagaev would have been a unification bout) and ready for a title challenge from Pulev. Instead he has nowhere to go as he’s not going to beat Wlad and Wlad wants to reign for 10 (!) more years.

you punks seem to forget HUCK really beat POV’s ass??? so he”s now 2nd best for beating a slow like a snail Charr in this fight?

Impressive finish from Povetkin, if David Haye is coming out of retirement and wants to be taken seriously again a fight with Alexander would be interesting. Povetkin and Haye should take their careers stateside to widen their appeal, theirs some good action fights for them there with Wilder and Jennings high in the rankings.

another great heavyweight fight from the mother land.

Hats off to Povetkin, Charr is a tough guy and Povetkin did better than I thought he would, sure Charr skills are not world class but Povetkin by Ko’ing Charr has re announced his hat in the ring after being forgotten after his rather poor performance against Wlad.

Pov is indeed the second best heavyweight out there and would be a champion in other eras. Just shows you how good Wlad really is, a class of his own.

Povetkin looked very good in this fight. Charr is limited but far from bum! That only shows how good wladimir is … Maybe greatest ever?
Povetkin got great skillz and grrat ring iq but he couldent even touch wlad…

And to think some people were saying David Haye bailed out against this guy because he was scared. Repect Charr for trying but just isn’t that good.

Eric, you can’t possibly believe the words that you type.

Pov easy 2nd best heavyweight.
Jennings and josh looks good but wilder appears to be a bum.

Wlad aint getting any younger. Wilder needs to step up to a top ten boxer at heavy than try to beat the champ. Talent dont equal heart. Pov has lots of heart

Sean PH…Read my breakdown on Povetkin career so far on the other article about this fight…yes he did tonight what he needed to do…but still a road ahead..lets see..

Sean, he doesn’t have that name yet. Just like GGG, but their obviously very talented. Stiverne won’t beat Wilder like everyone hopes. Neither will Povetkin. A matchup with Wlad is inevitable.

Dwc. Olympic gold medalist and former wba champ. Good so far

Beating Charr in 7 isnt like beating a prime Larry Holmes..but fair play he did what he was suppose to do.Now lets see how he moves forward…because at 34 its time….

Povetkin is easily the 2nd best heavyweight in the world behind Vlad. If he was bigger he could be the number 1. He looked in good shape tonight too.

Louie who did wilder beat in the top ten?

Wilder is next. His talent cannot be dismissed. I cannot wait to see him beat these pretenders.

Congratulations to Pov.

Pov beats wilder. Wilder fights losing fighters. Pov is far more proven. Gold medal pov bronze wilder.

eubanksconcretechin

Skier47 : Wilder and especially Joshua have proven nothing in the pro ranks lol what are you talking about Especially Joshua ! Joshua has only just turned pro and is learning the pro game . He has all the attributes to go far indeed but why would he have proven anything yet ?

Were the kids saying charr would whip povs ass?

Povetkin is an excellent fighter and will beat anyone except Klitschko.

Wilder is gonna kill this bum

Nice KO by Povetkin. And I am not so sure Deon beats Pov. Pov may KO Deon Wilder if birdlegs will come out the closet and fight him. Pov is a better boxer than Wilder, my money says Pov KO’s Wilder in round 9.

Well, That was a good Knockout!!! That’s the price you pay for taking your opponent lightly and showing up out of shape.

Posted May 30, 2014 3:32 pm 


Skier47

Wilder and especially Joshua have proven nothing in the pro ranks so far. Povetkin is far more accomplished and looked really finally in excellent shape for this latest victory. Maybe lasting the distance with Wlad gave him a burst of confidence. Great win for Povetkin and clearly the second best heavyweight now.

Nice job by the Russian, im not really all that surprised to be honest.

Posted May 30, 2014 3:27 pm 


Cooper

Nice KO by POVETKIN, but Wilder, Anthony Joshua and of course Wlad Klit would beat him (Pov)
