I'm going to say it's. Hmm, No Krunk Saturday.

Yeah, yeah, remember Larry Merchant "This....fight...should....be...KRUNK!" So, you were going to go to his house, but there is No Krunk Saturday. The wife didn't approve. That's my theory and I'm sticking with it.

I like Eddie, but good. Who the hell wants to see him fight for the right to get rolled by Wlad again?

Eddie needs to win a cruiser belt, then re-invade the heavies when Wlad and Vitaly are gone.

On the brightside we almost got to see two contenders fighting each other instead of cashing in on a Klitschko beating. Almost.

He's gone on record many times saying that he isn't gonna do that.

As much as it sucks, the two guys who can provide the best possible challenge to Wlad and are most deserving of the chance are two guys he's already dominated.

I do not concur that they are the two best. What big fights has either won since their respective losses?

I read that Thompson believes that Chambers knew he had a problem but didn't inform in time for the cancellation

Well, Chambers won an unnecessary rematch over a guy he comprehensively beat years earlier, but who'd gotten himself highly ranked (although he didn't look his best in doing so).

Thompson cleaned out a handful of fringe contenders and for the most part looked decent against them.

Resume aside - in h2h ability, they both have to be seen as right up there...no more than a couple of spaces removed from K2 (although K2 pretty much batters anyone behind them, including these two).

Chambers is a competitor. He wouldn't back out for no good reason. He knows what's at stake. Get off his (lower) back, man. He'll return and kick Thompson's ass.

Chambers should just forget about Thompson and fight Povetkin. The winner should fight Wladimir.
