Pianeta has a gift draw against Sosnowski, how the hell does he get a title shot, its ridiculous.

The heavyweight division pisses me off,no one exciting seems to be desperate to step up to challenge,only recycled opponents or washed up oldtimers looking for a payday,none of the contenders seem to want to face each other either,think a lot are just kinda waiting around for something to happen.

Helenius: promoted by Sauerland, different TV contract

Fury: he may or may not want the fight himself, but his trainer said "not yet" a couple of days ago

Boytsov: involved in a promotional dispute


So for various reasons, the 28-0-1 Pianeta (BoxRec #17, WBO #9) is one of the best available opponents. I'd sooner see Wladimir fight one of those five top ten heavyweights mentioned above. Wladimir would prefer to be fighting one of them, but the situation is what it is.

Its like posters on here think wlad can just look at the list and say "him" and its done.
Many of the top dogs are in position or a fight or 2 away from being in position for a MANDATORY fight. Why fight a voluntary, for less when they are close to a Mandatory?
I don't think it's hard, in reality, for them to understand. I think they DO get it, they DO understand what it takes, the mindset of the other fighters, etc...

However, that does not fit the "hater" agenda, and so they must ignore it.
