Default If I were Wladimir Klitschko's general manager

This is how I would line him up for 2013


March 2013- Alexander Povetkin - WBA Champion


August 2013- Kubrat Pulev - IBF Mandatory


December 2013- Robert Helenius- WBO # 1


I think those are 3 very legitimate opponents, all pose some kind of threat to Wlad(though Wlad is the huge favorite). All 3 are undefeated, ring magazine ranked contenders.

Wlad could certainly do worse than that line-up.

Wouldn't mind seeing a schedule like that for him this year.

That would be the best year for him in a while. If he would win all of them, which is very likely, he'd have a strong case for a fighter of the year with that resume.

Helenius is not a top 10 HW. And if he is, he is #9-10. Honestly, I'd value a Chambers re-match victory as highly despite the one sided first meeting.

Povetkin and Pulev are the two best fights for either Klitschko, though.

Hopefully either Helenius/Boytsov or Fury/Boytsov will happen for the WBO mandatory and that winner can be the 3rd fight.

No kidding. Povetkin avoids Wlad at all cost. But I really wish this lineup would go through, so he can start cleaning up the british stiffs the year after.
PS: my bet would be the winner of arrolla/stivern will be his opponent a unification bout after Vitali vacates.

WBC recently stated that they won't allow any WBC belt holders to unify Arreola will stay protected as **** with the WBC having bums being rated #1 for Chris to fight while Mexicans gush over their HW "Champion".

Ever since losing to Adamek he's been fighting journeymen for the past two years with the WBC fixing their rankings and rating him #1 for having done nothing while he waits for Vitali to retire and he turned down 2 title fight offers from Volodymyr. You really think once he gets gifted a belt that he'll start taking on real challenges?

If we could get just the first two, we could consider ourselves awfully, awfully lucky. Hell, if we got them squared away, especially after all the fussing with Povetkin, the third could be Kimbo Slice and I wouldn't give a shit.

Well Banks just won a WBC semi-eliminator so he's in line to fight for that championship. Arreola/Banks and Arreola/Fury are both pretty good matchups imo. None of these guys are on Wlad's level. Like the OP, I hope Wlad fights Pulev and Povetkin next.

if this happens and i'am by far not sure this will happen, then wlad will have beaten 3 top 5 ring rated fighters with unbeaten records in one year and i'am more then sure he will ko them.

He will be in the p4p top 3 and of course fighter of the year.

when was the last time a champion did this?

Guys all three fighters are with Sauerland. Povetkin, Pulev and Helenius.

They will not send in all of their three HW hopefuls against Wlad one after another. If all 3 fail they are in deep shit. They will go slow and maybe send in one guy per year, hoping Wlad ages and becomes slower.
