Default Maskaev strategy makes sense.

He will wait on the sideline for Klitchko-senior (who conviniently got out of a scheduled fight) to get to Peter and beat him (and he will). Then Maskaev will have a fight with Klitchko for big $$ - that he wanted all along.

makes a lot of sense...get the belt youve supposedly wanted your whole life and then act like a complete coward once you do have it.

he would have made more money if he was to beat peter, but then again, if he is that unsure of himself then it is a good move. He still had a punchers chance though. He has a nice short powerful right hand.

No, Peter-Maskaev will happen for the WBC Heavyweight Title and the winner has to fight Vitali if he is able to fight anymore. Vitali is not going to come back to fight Peter for the Interim title. When/if he comes back, it's going to be an easier tune-up or right away for a title shot.

No offense, but this is a terrible strategy and I sincerely doubt this is really the case. There's absolutely no guarantee that Vitali will be able to fight again. Faking an injury would be a big financial risk.

Exactly, Vitaly doesn't want to fight Peter for he doesn't want to get his ass beat. If Peter didn't even get wobbled by Wlad until he was dead tired in the 12th after chasing him and getting caught, then Peter will walk through Vitaly unphased by anything he lands and knock VK out. That's the reality and VK knows it. That is the reason we will not see Vitaly fight Peter...

A healthy Vitali even now just toys with Peter by boxing him from
distance. Vitali easily backs out of range from Peter's wide, looping
powershots and then nails him consistantly with accurate and powerful
counterpunches. Honestly, I can't think of a more perfect fighter
for Vitaly to feast on than Peter in his comeback to the ring. This
fight is a stylistic nightmare for Peter.

if vitaly comes back and goes straight for peter he will be in for a nightmarish surprise.

Yeah makes sense for a fighter who is trying to hang on to his dear career.

He can bring his title all the way six feet under the ground for all I CARE . . . but he won't ever get respect for long as he doesn't fight Peter who has worked his way to the title contention.

****i'n *****!

Beating washed out James "Steroids'n'Donuts" Toney 1.5 times - and a few complete bums in addition - is not "working his way to the title" in my book.

He will be just the same type of a phony WBC "champ" as Rahman was, and will end up just the same: knocked out in a corner. Maskaev may be too old, and deserves just one payday - somebody else will do that for him.

The sound you are hearing is the cash register "ka-ching" - from the sanctioning "bodies" and promoters.

I think this is a legit injury, but it'll certainly work out better for Maskaev, in the long run..

Yes, I think he's not too worried about the turn of events, as he sees a big money title fight with Vitali sometime in 2008.

Maskaev will make alot more fighting Vitali than he would fighting Peter right now. This injury is not such a bad thing for Maskaev.
