Default ESPN's HW Lineage Page

I can't post the link or else the mods will flip out, but if you go to ESPN's site and check their boxing page you'll find a very cool HW Championship Lineage timeline. It goes all the way back to the 1880's with Sullivan - complete with photos and even videos of most of the fighters.

Go to the boxing page and about half way down on the right side you'll see a link to the gallery. A VERY cool feature that all HW boxing fans should check out. For you newbies and youngsters on this board, it'd be a good reference to catch up on some history.

Didn't know that either! It was genius on Johansson's part.

so all esb dumb haters should take a look at that vid. mike tyson really knows his boxing, not because of what he said in the vid, but his past and his knowledge about boxing. and now look how much praise he gives the klitschkos, because he knows they are the real deal

I think in return, K2 fans should give Tyson the respect he deserves as well. He was quite a 'target' on here for awhile.

i think he at this point in his life is just straight to the point, no hidden agenda trying to push for ratings (cough HBO)

he tells it like it is and i agree with what he said 100%

america really is crying out for another homegrown heavyweight champ

I'm not a Wlad fan but yes he is certainly the lineal champion. He holds the Ring belt because he beat the top contender.

Lewis retired and vacated the lineal title. Vitali picked it up after beating top contender. Vitali retired thus vacating the lineal title and Wlad picked it up in 2009 with the win over Ruslan Chagaev.
It's simple to follow the heavyweight lineage.

Please, please, please don't start with your anti-Wlad bullshit. This is NOT a love/hate Klitschko thread, it's a historical boxing thread about the HW lineage.



Here's the link guys. Mods - please chill the **** out, this isn't a link to spam or something, it's a boxing related link that could honestly help educate a lot of posters on here.
