Does anybody think he can find some sort of success, even minor? He had some skills back in the day. I hope he kept in shape all this time.

I take it he needs money? He never really had a lot of success in his prime.

He'll certainly be rated higher that real contenders Chauncey Welliver, David Rodriquez and Mariusz Wach.

There are 2 ATG HW's fighting today. 1 is Doctor Wladimir Klitschko. The other, Doctor Vitali Klitschko.

It's not their size. It's not their raw power. It's not their defense, and it's not their styles. It's the combinations of all those factors in which they make their opponents looks like novices and worse than they really are.

Aside from them, there are about 15 or so fighters who have 2, maybe 3, of those same intangibles that the K2 have. Size, power, speed, defense, ring generalship. Welliver, Wach, and Rodriguez are 3 of those guys. And NO ONE will fight them because they do.

Helenius is the NEXT dominant HW champ, and will prbably be the first UNDISPUTED HW champ since Lewis. Not because he is so much better than the rest of the division, which he is, but because his mgmt gets him the fights he needs to maintain his ranking, and so long as he avoids the unstoppable K2, he'll quietly await their retirement then presume to kTFO of any and all comers en route to his UNDISPUTED title.

The problem I have, and the reason for my latest Rodriguez nuthugger bandwagon is not b/c I think he's the next great HW. I know that is Helenius, and have known it was Helenius since his destruction of Scotty Gammer, but b/c no one will fight these 3 guys. Wach, Welliver, and Rodriguez. And it sickens me to know that the Boystovs, the Fury's, the Arreolas, and the Rahmans will continue to get spoonfed opposition between losses or breaks, while maintaining their relative rankings.

Welliver, Wach, and Rodriguez, however, are criticized for fighting the Firthas, Polleys, Estradas, and Maddalones though, when those journeymen are the only guys who answer their calls.

what is he supposed to be coming back to?
In retirement he was probably as successful as he was as an active pro.

Let's haul out the typical "It's a wide open division", "There's always a place for fighter with Larry's skills" and "If he were in his prime today" statements.

Every old **** who was remotely near a title is trying to make a comeback now on the hope that they will slip up and get a mandatory against one of the Klitschkos.

If he were in his prime today... He would still find away to mess it up!

Donald came along 12 years too late, he would of been classic Lost Generation; all the talent, but none of the confidence/dedication to get the job done.
