Default Re: Sultan Ibragimov vs Ruslan Chagaev

I had Valuev winning that fight, so I'll go with Ibragimov, although it's a close call.
Another good consequence of this (considering that the WBC is tied up for two fights, and so may be the IBF if Wlad agrees to fight the WBA-WBO winner) may be that the top contenders will have to face off against each other, to give some idea of who will be worthy to face the unified champion in the end. We could end up with fighters like Valuev, Lyakhovich, all the older guys (Morrison, McCall, Holyfield, etc) and the young ones (Povetkin, Greenberg, etc) fighting each other instead of outsiders. Genuine top ten match-ups should produce a consensus challenger to a consensus champion, and hopefully Ray Austin won't be involved!
