HWs aren't big main events anymore. Ok. What does that have anything to do with Wladimir Klitschko? HBO is the company in charge of producing those events. If they can't appeal to the american market, it's their problem.
Exactly,Lost once to a absolutely nobody,Lost again and then again,And he's so great? It proves his correct about his mental strength, After one lose he should have changed but that's not it,The level of competition has decreased dramatically to a point where just about every HW contender will not be remembered.
HW's arent big events because although the public may believe the hype in a fight they want to see a SKILLED fight. Even they see Wladimir is a one dimensional fighter,a flat flooted jabber, who beats up bums who can't last 4 rounds. Exciting. Not. If you can't avoid a jab you're not one tenth a fighter of the past. By the way his jab would be useless against Rocky,His side crouch made it near possible to jab or he would just block it with his right(Which was always near his head) then just goto school.
