Realistically there's no reason why he can't carry on for another decade, there's nobody out there anywhere near capable of challenging him.
Cant see him hanging around that long but you are probably right,there isnt anyone who looks likely to cause him any problems. He proved against Peter that these days even if he does get hurt he can ride it out.
The only way he loses is through complacency,I dont mean in training as he is a supreme athlete and always in bang on shape. Just where he thinks for a bit that nobody can bother him and does something a bit slack defense wise.

I think the way in which he dominated Haye shows just how far he is above everyone else.

I think that, minus Vitali, Haye beats everyone else (at this moment in time anyway), yet Wladimir beat him out of sight.

Yep and they use every trick in the book to unsettle there opponents ie Chisoras handwraps and the Haye having to walk through the crowd debacle not like i blame them i don`t, but some people try to make out that they are beyond all that when they are not.They are still good ambassadors for the sport imo

You are probably right about Haye,its a shame he isnt a bit bigger and liked to fight a bit more often.
The Wlad fight was predictable,I was on a trip with a load of casual fans all talking about which round Haye would land the KO. It reminded me of Hatton v Manny. I kept telling them"our lad has a chance but its going to be ****ing hard". Wlad did everything I expected that night and made Haye look not daft but totally ineffective.

What is there to dislike about Wlad? He seems like a great guy.

Yeah I like wlad and would want him to win anyway, David Haye managed to turn me into a klitschko fan during the build up when he kept embarrassing himself.

From what I've seen of wach he's too basic to cause any problems anyway, his best hope issue to get in close and make it messy

Pretty amazed how much credit he gets, especially from the Brittish
Always going to be haters, and yeah he can be boring sometime... but honestly there isn't much to hate about him.

Plus as ambassador to give boxing a good name, what more do you want?

The man seems class all around, and the fact he said he wants to do everything he can to keep Kronk open gives me a ton of respect for him.

Go Wlad, make Steward proud!

Jeebus, Beeston. There's no reason he can't have a sixteen-year reign until he's 46, over a 26-year-career? There's no reason he can't go on ten years after 61 pro fights? He's not Superman and contrary to popular belief, the rest of the division are not bums. That is way overshooting realism, brother.

Happy for Wlad. I wouldn't mind Wlad losing for the sake of shaking up the division but I'm glad it wasn't tonight.

You are right, there doesn't look like there is anyone out there capable of beating him at the moment but I think that that says more about the shit state of the division than it does about Wlads ability. He is absolutely shit to watch, and lets be frank, watching is what its all about.

I fully understand everyones sentiments as regards Steward but lets be straight here, Wlad isn't anywhere close to his greatest creation.

I was clearly jesting, but there's nobody out there that's going to come close to beating him at any point in the near future.

Povetkin was smacked around and bullied at times by the very average Marco Huck.... who received a questionable decision over a 100 year old Arslan.

Others, such as Pulev and Price, good operators but just not on the level.

The rest are ****ing shit.

I don't mind watching him, the Iggy fight was brutal as were the Chambers and Haye fights, though at least part of the responsibility must go to the opponents who didn't want to fight.

Hearns is obviously Steward's #1 fighter, probably amongst the top 5 boxers ever in terms of skills and power.... it was only an average chin and less than brilliant stamina that stopped him from being unbeatable.
