Re: Wladimir Klitschko now holds the record for the longest reign in heavyweight boxi
The K Bros are the dominant heavyweight champions of this era.
Wladimir is the king of the heavyweight division, and he has been since he beat THE hot prospect(Sam Peter) and the #1 heavyweight(Chris Byrd) consecutively.
His competition isn't amazing, but the 7+ years he's going to have with the title will put him up there on any ATG list. Not getting beat, night to night to night, is the HARDEST thing in this sport, frankly, consistency deserves more credit then it gets.
He's gone longer then Mike Tyson before running into a Buster Douglas, and Lennox Lewis before running into a Hasim Rahman. That should be applauded/
