I dont see how people cant believe something was wrong with his health.
He was basically falling asleep in the ring, ive never seen anything like it. It was more than just being "tired"
When I was watching the fight live, I had suspected he had a bad concusion from the way he was acting.
We do have blood test results and his blood sugar was all out of wack.

Whether or not you want to buy into poisoning conspiracy theories, it is obvious he was NOT in good health that night.

I don't HATE Wlad. In fact, I think he's an admirable person who seems genuinely decent and he is a specimen in the ring. Nimble for a giant heavyweight with sound technical ability and ample power-what's not to like? BUT, I find myself rooting against him and wanting him to get KTFO in every fight. I figured out that the reason why is because of his fans, particularly on this site. Honestly, if I were to watch boxing with the sound turned off and I never visited a boxing website, I'd probably be a Wlad Fan.

PBF is the only one right now.

I'd love to see someone knock him out or at least shut his mouth, but I don't see that happening.

I agree with the word hate, a lil harsh, but I dislike Klit. I find myself routing against him in all of his fight.

If I hate a fighter, I seldom give them anything, because I only hate guys for specific reasons. But there is one however that I do dislike a whole lot and give props and that is Floyd Mayweather.

The rest of the bunch that I hate is just pathetic all of the way around.

I give credit to pretty much all the fighters I dislike provided they deserve it.

The ones I seem to do most are Lennox Lewis and Marvin Hagler. I never liked either of them, but I find myself always defending them from people who underrate Lewis and say he had a glass chin, or those who think Hagler was a brawler without much skill.

Lewis's chin was decent and Hagler was a highly skilled, versatile boxer-puncher who could brawl with success as well.

paul williams - well i dont hate him but before the margo fight i thought he was just hype, his fights didn't impress me and in the margo fight its like he changed his style and got better almost overnight, he wasn't all over the place throwing wild punches like his earlier fights, and i also didn't think he can take a shot because his chin used to be up in the air.

cory spinks - he does what he has to do to win, boring as hell but no one wants to fight him because he can make anyone look bad.
Oscar De La Hoya - I think Hoya had many tools and at times showed a warriors heart. He possess plenty of skill, fortitude and ring intellegence. I dunno I just find his attitude fabricated and a bit annoying.

Tito I really didn't care for him when he was fighting but the man never ducked anyone and had a heart anyone can respect.

I hate no fighters. All boxers get my respect, because standing in that ring is brave. No matter what shit they talk (PBF, Mundine....)

And the people who questioning some fighters heart (in that case Klitschko) I wanna see in a real fight. I am sure a couple of them would be real pussies...
