That leaves Pulev, who's as ready as he'll ever be and apparently willing to take the challenge.
K2 ball bagged Fury out of the fight. They also dont give a **** about you and will continue to sell you these worthless uncompetitive fights till they feel they've milked enough cash and decide to walk away.

- active, he fought 4 times in 2012
- a southpaw (more difficult style for the champ)
- a known name in Germany, makes the fight bigger there


I know, I'm reaching here. But like I said, trying to find a silver lining.
A completely different tune than the type you play when it comes to Floyd and his opponents

Wlad seems to have overcome any fear of southpaws.

As I remember, Wlad sparred with Pianeta in the run up to the Thompson II fight.

Gotta take a look at some video. What's the best fight with Pianeta in it?

Good fight, looking forward if true. Top 20 in most orgs charts, so a good warm up for Pov.

I feel you, was waiting for this...

The difference is that Floyd fights in a very strong division (WW-JMW) with plenty of willing and deserving challengers that we'd all love to see him fight. Yet he usually fights only once a year and it's rarely against the boxers we'd like to see him face (normally due to him not wanting to make those fights). It's not as if he's extending offers to everyone and being shamelessly ducked.

Am I excited about Klitschko-Pianeta? **** no! But how can you blame Wlad? He's tried to get Povetkin in the ring for years but gets ducked. It took him years (and serious concessions) to get Haye in the ring. In the past he sent offers to Valuev and other top contenders/titlists and was declined. So at this point it's either fight somebody like Jennings (who's just not ready yet) or a guy like Pianeta. What do you want him to do - not fight? Instead, Wlad takes this "stay busy" match then hopes to get the legit fight with Povetkin (#2 HW behind Vitali) in the summer.

I'm not defending Klitschko-Pianeta or saying it's the greatest match up ever, but I'd rather the champion fight somebody in between big bouts then simply sit on the sidelines and not fight at all. If Floyd fought 3 times a year (2 stay busy fights and 1 big fight) I really couldn't complain; especially if he didn't charge $60 PPV for each bout.

Haye who has nothing wouldn't fight this guy in a million years.
Deontay Wilder could fight him and he'd still be ridiculed for not stepping up.
Wlad vs Pianeta.
Wilder vs Pinata.

Wlad vs. Pianeta isn't really all that bad, while obviously Pianeta has absolutely ZERO chance of victory and the result is a foregone conclusion, i.e. mid round KO.

Aside from that he is certainly a better opponent than Oquendo.


Facts:

Pianeta is undefeated

Pianeta has KO power

Pianeta is in his physical prime


We'd all rather see Wlad vs. Fury or Price though

At least is better than the Oquendo fight, between Oquendo and Solis.

So it's everyone's fault but Wlad's? How is it Floyd's fault? Arum has kept all his fighters away from him. Funny how it's OK for others though...

****, when Floyd was even WITH Arum, Arum wouldn't let him fight Margarito and Oscar back to back when renewing his contract. Instead Floyd had to leave and end up fighting Baldomir instead, yet somehow it's ALL Mayweather's fault.
