The sick bias against the Klitschkos in America is wrong. However, most boxing fans in America actually like Klitschkos and want to see them fight, but Home Buttocks Office boycotts them, pushes others to boycott them because of their personal prejudice. Glad EPIX has finally decided to show them.

HBO pulled the plug on them because the American boxing fans are bored of them and have given up on the heavyweight division years ago. The numbers prove that. The last time either Klit did good numbers, was when Vitali fought Arreola. Reason being, America is full of latino's who wanted to see their first heavyweight champ.

Both Klits have no personalities, and only one puts on decent fights in the ring (Vitali).

Vitali Vs. Arreola fight was HBO's highest rated fight of the year! When Vitali fought Kirk Johnson MSG sold out during a huge snowstorm! Vitali and Vlad are exciting, it's just that they keep on knocking your heroes. How exciting was Austin/Solis fight?

Like I said in my post, Vitali/Arreola did very well. Main reason being the high latino population in the states which allowed for the fight to be such a huge success. HBO recognized this, and that's why they picked the fight up.

Vitali also held another record, lowest PPV sells for a heavyweight fight. In 04 when he fought Danny Williams, it did horrible numbers. It was also the last time either Klit was on PPV.

The Klitchkos are bigger than everyone, That helps. If the Klitchkos had to fight a Mike Tyson skilled fighter who was 6-1 265 pounds they would lose in one or two rounds. They are just so big.

He was Ali's heaviest opponent by about 20-25lbs. His average opponent was about 30-40 lbs lighter. He is also about the same weight as an average Klitschko opponent. He did go the distance with Ali though. I would say people these days may well have a stronger frame than back then as well because of better diets through childhood. The heavy weights of today are obviously not in as good shape though.

I agree and yet you make it look like an obsession. They will get their praise when they retire (in case they continue their unbeaten run), be patient. Once they are gone everyone in the boxing scene will realize how valuable they were.
