Fury does need 2 more fights really.

But who on here has ever seen this guy fight?

Of 62 fights, he took 8 Oh's. Pianetta will be 9. It's just what he does. 12 others only had 1 loss. Boxrec obviously, but still interesting. I wonder if anyone has taken more Oh's?

Wlad has also scored at least one KO/TKO in every round 1-12!

wasnt there a round that got removed? DQ or something

Ya, DQ and TD in the 5th. He was TKO'd in 5 though against Brewster (that I didnt need Boxrec for lol)

Wlad is just milking every penny
Just because you never heard of him it does not mean that he is a bum.
Pianeta is a good boxer.

I wish someone would come forward and really push for a fight with Wlad. I suppose Haye would make sense but I can understand K2 not wanting to work with Hayemaker again. I'll certainly watch this Pianeta fight but it isn't a fight I'll be wildly excited about. The champ has to stay busy I suppose

Larry Holmes and Joe Louis had some worse title defenses than Pianeta.

Holmes title fights:

Mike Weaver (41-18 ) (1979)
Ossie Ocasio (23-13) (1979)
David Bey (18-11) (1985)

Joe Louis title fights:

Johnny Paychek (not ranked top 10)
Arturo Godoy
Al McCoy (3-3 in previous 6, not ranked top 10)
Red Burman (not ranked top 10)
Gus Dorazio (not ranked top 10)
Abe Simon (coming off loss to 15-11 Jim Thompson)
Tony Musto (was 2-4 in previous 6, not ranked top 10)

Why is Pianeta's fighting old McCall any worse than Ali fighting age 47 Archie Moore? Or Mike Moorer being KOed by an old Foreman?

Pianeta is:

BoxRec #17
WBO #9
WBA #12
- undefeated 28-0
- 6'5", 240 pounds (no blown up cruiserweight)
- young at age 28 and in his physical prime (no shot old guy)
- 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

Decent opponent for Wlad right now. I'm looking forward to it!

My guess is that it's to help prepare for a bout with Fury (Fury or Price until last weekend) . . . just my guess.

Pianeta is a decent world level fighter, the matchup would be OK, the problem is getting this fight after Mormeck, TT and then Wach. It's just a bad and long run, no world top 10 rated fighter on that list, it was about time we got to watch something bigger.

Anyway, a fight is always better than no fight. Enough with the talking and let's get it on.

WTF so beating boxers who were not even good in they're primes in mid-late 90's and now are in they're late 40's (Botha, Mcall) now gets you a shot at the HW title

I'd rather see him fight Harrison ffs at least they would be some comedy aspect....this fight is nothing.

I don't know how Wlad finds the motivation to fight these cans

Following is a post that was made a few days ago by the admins of the Klitschko FanPage on Facebook. This is not the official Klitschko facebook page, but they do always seem to be "in the know" and most of the time post updates before other sources.

Quote:
"Vitali Klitschko will attend kiteboarding competitions on snow - SnowKite Fest 2013 in Kiev.

Vitali has been actively interested in kitesurfing for several years, however this time because of a recent surgery of the knee joint. Vitali will be present at the festival as a guest of honor.

The event will be held from 9am till 7pm on March 2 in front of the Kiev exclusive cottage village club Riviera Villas (20 km from Kiev). "
So, from this quote, at least the way it is worded, it seems they are saying that Vitali has already had another knee surgery. Again, don't know how accurate this is, just passing it along.

The highest ranked opponent he's defeated was ranked #18 at the time by the IBO computer.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Timothy Bradley's next opponent Provodnikov is ranked BoxRec #24 in a lighter weight division than Bradley (he's never fought at 147 before). The highest ranked fighter Provodnikov ever defeated was ranked #58 by the IBO computer! Even though Bradley in contrast to Provodnikov is generally ranked in the top 10 P4P, nobody is complaining about Bradley-Provodnikov.

Why are people so hard on the Klitschkos?
Bradley isn't unifed welter weight champ and isn't fighting his 4th bum in a row. He only won the belt in his last fight. Not comparable.
