08.01.05 - By Jim Amato: There are strong indications that Don King is going to match Vitali Klitschko against former champion Hasim "Rock" Rahman sometime in May. Rahman may be the best fighter Vitali has yet to face.When motivated Rahman can be a very dangerous adversary.This could be the hardest fight of Vitali's career. On the other hand, an impressive win by Vitali against one of the two men who defeated Lennox Lewis may draw Lewis out of retirement..
I like Rahman's chances, especially if he is in peak condition. I hope he trains hard because more then likely this will be his last shot. Still, it makes me worry a bit about a Rahman victory when I remember "Rock" was defeated by John Ruiz. Nevertheless, if this fight does come off it should give us a better gauge in determing if Vitali is the real thing.
