Also you gotta laugh at how many non boxers and fat ****ers on here can knock a guy always fit and ready for his fights,but as a fan i guess we have a right to do that,but maybe some should think about the fact they have never even had the guts to get in a ring before slating some of the boxers.

Well said, Joe.

Nope, came up short by LOSING the only two times he ever faced elite fighters. Even though one of them was Chris Byrd and the other was an old, fat Lewis.

Wait until we do it fo really in the ring tomorrow, you can do all this to me tomorrow if you wishes..

He dominated Hide and took his title in about 4 minutes flat..
Without throwing tables over.. LOL

3/10. Must try harder.




I understand English perfectly. It's just that you don't seem to know how to use it.

I wouldn't normally bother pointing out someone's spelling or grammatical errors, but seeing as you were trying to say I was dumb & a kid, you should at least have a grasp of your native language above the level of a 7 year old.





Oh, and I'm English not American.


This is tooooo easy.

A man scared into retirement by Hasim Rahman?

A man who scared Lewis in retirement?

An inury-plagued individual with a boatload of talent?

Just someone majorly overhyped by HBO and The Ring Magazine?

Possibly one of the most dangerous heavyweights in his era?

One of the crappiest heavyweight champions in history?

....what's your take?
There are certain circles in the boxing organization that will never accept Vitlai Klitschko. It matters not. Vitali was the #1 guy for a period of time by all third party opinions that mattered. This includes organizations like Ring Magazine, Fight News, Box Rec, and ESPN. What Joe Hater says means nothing. Here is how Vitlai will be remembered.

1. Vitlai has the highest KO% in the history of boxing at all weight classes.

2. Vitali has the best ratio of rounds won vs round lost among heavyweight champions and was never down on the score cards after round 3 in any of his fights.

3. Vitlai was never floored by a punch.

4. TBA. If Vitlai can take a few years off, and come back to win a belt at age 36, he will join a special club of fighters who have done this. To take many years off and return to the ring at age 36+ to win a title belt is very rare.

Critics might say Vitlai lost to Lewis and Byrd, due to an injury or cut. Ok--but let's keep it real, neither Lewis or Byrd wanted any part of a re-match.

To answer you question, I think Vitlai's legacy will look much better say 20 years from now when people objectively look back at his career.

I love it when people get sensitive and catch feelings because someone is making fun of a boxer on a message board.

I wouldn't really say vitali was a legend, yes he was a classy guy but he lost in his biggest fight and wasn't and will never be a true all time great. He also has the bad luck of having a less tough but more talented younger brother who with overshadow him.

I dont like Vitali, but even a hater like myself has to give him alot of credit for what he did in the ring for that brief period of time. I know only a few fighters that possesed the combination of a granite chin and a very heavy punch that Vitali had, fighters like Vitali are missing in the heavyweight division now adays.

As I ALREADY SAID (damn you're thick! ), I normally wouldn't even mention it, but YOU started talking about me being a dumb kid. Then as soon as I school you, it doesn't matter any more?

Whatever.

Yes, I'm a nothing in the world of professional boxing. So are you. So what? Vitali is a decent former belt-holder who in all seriousness will be remembered by boxing fans or a while, but he's certainly not in the "legend" category.

I'll be remembered by those who matter to me long after I'm dead, whereas Vitali isn't known to most of them even now. See, it's all relative.
