Default Re: List opponents you'd want W.Klitschko to face

As of now Wlads legacy is gone down the shitter.

He needs to beat these top names more than they need him. Low balling and handing out slave contracts that deter theses guys might suit him now but in the long run will kick him up the ass.
He's in Fury's era now.

I dont want to see Wladimir (a big HW) with a Cruiser. Huck and YPH still have problems at Cruiser...why fighting Wladimir?
I mean Huck allready lost against Lebedev and Arslan.Haha
Outside the top ten heavies the next best are the top two cruisers.

There are better HWS then Huck outhere. Boytsov would beat him. Charr would beat him. every other good HW outside the top ten would beat him. Huck looked good against fat Povetkin but thats all. Huck lost against old Arslan and Lebedev. I just dont want to see a Cruiser against a HW champ if he is not unified champ.

YPH is really good, but i dont want to see him against Wlad. Wouldnt be good for him. One right hand and he is ko.
This is why I'm not gonna debate with you - were wlad to sign either fight you'd have a sudden change of heart and say they're the best fights available.

Saying Huck and YPH are the best options besides the top ten HW is just nonsense. Fact!.
The public doesn't give a rat's ass about any of that duuuude
In the general public's eyes Huck is the guy that handed Povetkin his ass and there is literally no better move to promote the upcoming Povetkin bout than to behead Huck prior to that. That would get the opposing camps all worked up and excited about the next fight.

Default Re: List opponents you'd want W.Klitschko to face

Alexander Povetkin
Tyson Fury
Denis Boytsov
Kubrat Pulev
Francesco Pianeta
Luis Ortiz
Tomasz Adamek
Robert Helenius

And in a year or two:

Magomed Abdusalamov
David Price
Bryant Jennings
Deontay Wilder

It would be better if some of those guys would fight each other first, so as to become better qualified for the shot at Wlad.

That logic brings us nowhere. If so, boxers should not fight each other at all and outcomes should be decided on boxing forums among boxing fans, as we already know who's better than who

fury gunna beat cunningham im pretty confident in that

I don't understand all this interest with Wlad fighting Povetkin. Really? Povetkin couldn't beat Huck, well not decisively anyway.
Huck's been knocked out by Cunningham, who isn't a big hitting Cruiserweight. Wlad vs Povetkin isn't really going to be competitive.

To be fair, there isn't that many fights out there for him, but I'm gonna go down the list out of worthy contenders:

Pulev - Why not, he knocked out a 300lb fighter, he isn't fat and shot to sh**.
Adamek - Hell no. Just look at the Vitali fight.
Haye - Let him fight Vitali first.
Fury - Yes, mainly because he's been running his mouth and actually hasn't fought a good fighter besides Chisora. Either way, he's getting sparked.
Solis - I don't mind this, as long as Solis doesn't come in heavy. The dude is a lot more skilled than a lot of these contenders.
Helenius - Not really. Just look at his physique, his waist is bigger than his chest.
Arreola - If he beats Stiverne and is in better shape, than yes. He comes to fight and has alot of heart. He ain't going to quite or turn up for a paycheck.
Wilder - Simply needs more fights. But it'd definitely be exciting.
Price - If my money were on anyone, it would be Price. Maybe later on in 2013, he needs more fights and needs to do it quick.

So as you can see from the list, there ain't many. These are the best contenders and still some of them aren't in the best shape, it's just a bit of a disgrace to be honest. However, I feel that Price has the tools to beat Wlad. He's bigger than him, maybe just as strong, but that right hand he has is killer.

Wlad had 3 fights in 2012. Wach - Just wack, he's big, got a heck of a chin, but seriously lacking in skill. Thompson - Old. In bad shape. Mormeck - Old. Small. Washed up.

The young hungry fighters we have in the Heavyweight division have got to STEP UP. It's not good for boxing, it's not good for the Klitschko's legacy either.

Yes, because you're talking absolute terms. It's like saying "I prefer Tyson vs Ali to anything else". But we must be realistic. Huck is realistic and is the best option right now

Default Re: List opponents you'd want W.Klitschko to face

Vitali or Vlad will beat all fighters fighting today, in any weight division. I would like Vitali or Vlad to fight SOB Ward next because Ward claims to be the best fighter in any weight division and will only fight in his home town with his personal referee, judges, ring, commentators, etc., afterall, if you are the best fighter in the world you should be able to beat "ALL" fighters in the world. Mayweather should fight Klitschkos also...........................I would like to see Vitali or Vlad fight Wilder also, Wilder has zero chance, but Wilder is an American hero, so the fight would sell out at MSG. Vitali Vs. Johnson sold out during a huge snow storm at MSG. Let Ward put his fists where his mouth is, there are others who came up from lightheavyweight to heavyweight. As far as Void Mayweather.................well....................he should put his fists where his mouth is also, but Ward is lightheavyweight, so that one should be first. As far as Fury, no chance, Price, no chance, Pulev, no chance, Boytsov, no chance, Wilder, no chance, so let's watch Klitschkos fight the one who claims to be the best in any weight division, why not, would be a knockout, but so would the others..............I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SEE KLITSCHKOS STEP IN AND FIGHT MITCHELL, BUT IF JENNINGS WOULD FIGHT HIM THAT WOULD BE FINE, THE WINNER COULD FIGHT KLITSCHKOS!!!!!!!

Something like:

1. Povetkin
2. Pulev/Adamek winner (I'm assuming Pulev)
3. Fury
4. Glazkov/Scott winner
5. Haye rematch
6. Arreola/Stiverne winner (I'm assuming Arreola)
7. Solis (much rather be saying something like Solis/Boytsov winner)
8. Boytsov (much rather be saying something like Boytsov/Solis winner)
9. Jennings (much rather be saying something like Jennings/Helenius winner)
10. Helenius (much rather be saying something like Helenius/Jennings winner)

Two clear and only top choices:
Povetkin
Pulev

Sometime soon but not immediately likely at least two of:
Fury
Price
Jennings
Wilder

If he were to win impressively some more, I'm open to:
Haye II

I've said it before and I will say it again. Haye can do as much if not more for Volo's resume in the short term than Volo himself can, by just taking fights and making himself a more impactful figure on the division's history. It wouldn't take much. I think he would impress against guys like Fury and Helenius if he went in with the mentality he's not shown against one of the division's tall men yet. I think he's capable of shining in a way he hasn't yet and being maybe an arguable case as the premier name on Volo's resume, where I currently have Byrd.

Iceman71 is going to really enjoy this post, I feel.
