OMG!

What if Safetypin wins, (wich is very possible) do we get Vitali vs Johnson II "12 rounds of nothing"?

Was Klitschko vs. Charr I (while it lasted) "something"?

I guess everything is relative.

So many WBC HW eliminators going on its hard to keep track, Banks-Mitchell was apparently a WBC semi-eliminator, Arreola-Stiverne is a WBC final eliminator also.

Of course it's relative, but the 4 rounds of Vit vs Diamond Boy were slightly more exciting as all 144 rounds of Vitali vs Johnson.

I really didn't think this would happen because of KJ's extremely low ranking (too low, really), but I have underestimated Sulaiman once again, it seems.

Let us not forget that this is just a semi-elim. Even if KJ does win, he'd still have to take on Stiverne-Arreola winner (Stiverne). So it's not like we'd get 12 rounds of that again.

Plus, WBC is weak enforcing mandatories. They'd probably just rewrite the script again like they've done countless amounts of times if KJ wins and Vitali is still champ.

Wait, wait. WHAT??
I thought Fury was expected as Wladimirs next opponent, not Vitalis?!
And what about KJ's loss against BigVit and his showings afterwards?

Agreed. It's a good fight, really. Just funny how their rankings don't reflect it.

But Banks vs Mitchell was also a semi so thats 3 WBC semi-finals how does that work?

I think Arreola beats Stiverne.
