Default W. Klitshcko to bring heavyweight boxing back to the mainstream -

Looking at the wasteland of heavyweight fighters, especially regarding the WBA, IBF, WBO ranking guys who arent worthy why dosent Wlad go on a rampage...and clear the deadwood- This is what i suggest of course subject to each changeling contender to Wlad continuing to win. So ive picked guys who i think due to their match making will still be winning come fight night.

Il give reasons and the background to these fighters and why it could happen and Where.


2011

USA - Oct C. Arreola - Currently 33-2 - Fight time 34-2
Looks like he will be fighting in 2 months time (Aug)...perfect fight for Wlad to take on a guy who could well be 34-2. IBF 5th / WBA 15th/ WBO 13th

Germany - Dec A. Ustinov - Currently 23-0 - Fight time 24-0
Unbeaten Russian who at 6'7 and half and over 280 would be a marketable fight. IBF 13th/ WBA 4th/

2012

France - Jan J.M. Mormeck - Currently 36-4 - Fight time 37-4
Former Undisputed Cruiserweight champion, Wlad takes it to him in his hometown. IBF 12th/ WBA 7th

Germany - Apr A. Povetkin - Currenty 21-0 - Fight time 23-0
Unbeaten Olympic Gold medal winner and holder of the WBA regular belt. IBF 10th/ WBA 2nd/ WBO 4th

USA - Jun C. Boswell - Currently 35-1 - Fight time 37-1
Top level journeyman who holds wins over prospects and former champs, time to get rid of this man from the rankings. WBA 14th

Germany - Aug A. Dimtrenko Currently 32-1 - Fight time 35-1
Carefully matched contender, and fellow ukranian big man. WBA 6th/ IBF 9th/ WBO 7th

USA - Oct D. Boystov Currently 28-0 - Fight time 30-0
Another good but carefully matched prospect - IBF 6th/ WBA 3rd/ WBO 5th

USA - Dec R. Helenius Currently 15-0 Fight time 19-0
Dangerous fighter and perhpas the best of this years bunch. IBF 3rd/ WBA 8th/ WBO 2nd


This would be a sure way to bring back heavyweight boxing. Some of the fights could be on free to air tv, and becuase of the consistency and sheer activity I dont think people would mind watching the champ take care of business roughly every 2 months.

Didn't I hear that he wants to fight the winner of Chisora/Fury?

Not quite the "rampage" you were hoping for.

I know it sounds negative but the problem is most of them are likely to be dull fights.

I think to attempt to kickstart the division the contenders need to start facing each other. Before Haye-Klitschko the last heavyweight fight that featured two fighters rated at the time by The Ring magazine (in effect the top 11) was Klitschko-Chambers back in March 2010 - that's pretty awful.

I don't think anyone is good enough to beat Wlad (bar Vitali) but at least if challengers were a bit more proven the antcipation of his fights might grow.

the mormeck fight is probably worse than fighting the winner of fury-chisora.

anyway, i dont see wlad fighting more than 3 times a year. nice idea though

The reason I didnt put that fight up is if Fury wins i doubt he or his management will throw him against Wlad.

Also Fury is not ranked.

If Chisora wins then yes he could well go on and fight Wlad.

Gazoc your right in alot of ways fella BUT then main thing is stamp authority over a division...its honestly useless to fight twice a year. Wlad said he is more motivated than ever. Also of course some of the fights would not be a great interest BUT then he cant fight the best of the best fight after fight...it would take its toll and unfortunately some of them would not go in the ring with Wlad.

Alot of the fights he could just take a cheque of 1 or 2 mill....free tv, free internet...then when the big one comes or the more exciting fights like Povetkin or Helenius...its PPV.

Also side note but Tyson did this-

1986
Nov T. Berbick

1987
Mar J. Smith

May P. Thomas

Aug T. Tucker

Oct T. Biggs

1988

Jan L. Holmes

Mar T. Tubbs

Jun M. Spinks

Was meant to then fight the following under the Cayton/ Rooney influence...

Sept F. Bruno

Nov C. Williams

But of course his life spiralled out of control and instead fought Bruno and Williams in 1989....so from June 1988 to Feb 1990 which is 22 months...Tyson had 2 fights.

From Nov 86 to June 88 which is 19 months...he had 8 fights.

Yet again its interesting in the fact that his best form was when active, sometimes you have bad fights ala J. Smith...but you constantly improve...which Tyson did. When Tyson came under D. King then he had 6 fights less and 3 months more.


Alot of fighters have like 8 to 12 week training camp....well if you fought often, you really only 4 to 5 week camp, as your so active...forget getting into shape ...as you already are in shape...

Wlad should clean the division literally from top to bottom.

Winner of Chisora/Fury
Arreola
Boystov
Ustinov
Dimtrenko
Povetkin
Helenuis

Job done.
