Wlad is a ****ing joke, he is the CHAMP and its not like he have something to prove.
So someone tell me why he got stay busy fights with straight out BUMS?

That was my original thought, but then I thought about it. Who else is there? Seriously?

Not a great defense at all by Wlad, which unfortunately, is becoming common for the champ. Oquendo is a better match up than Mormeck and on par with Thompson and Wach but none of the defenses have had any appeal. Like those other fights Oquendo has almost no chance.

If this fight does happen than thats a good thing for Oquendo. He's been around a while and been on the wrong end of some bad decisions and he'd probably make a nice payday here.

With Wlad-Povetkin being pushed back until summer I wonder if Povetkin sits until then or if he takes a fight in the meantime.

Not for the money that K2 offer & the options they demand.

This can't surely be true although it will be funny seeing the fanboys justify fres as the best available heavyweight.

If everyone else is ducking him, what other choice does he have? It sucks but at least he's staying active.

Oquendo would be a horrible choice. It'd be embarrassing. Oquendo lost a close fight to Mormeck, the bum that got decapitated by Wlad in a total mismatch.

More proof that this division is dead. As much as I like the Klitschkos it's sad to see them resort to such opponents because of a lacking division, though at least Wladimir is active. Whether you like Wladimir or hate him, he would give a lot of top heavyweight hell even in losing, sadly the current division has nothing to fully test him.

Mormeck is a cruiserweight who has been through far too many wars by the time he was forced to move up to heavyweight. I wouldn't overlook that and consider him a "bum" unless you're psychologically challenged to the very core.

While Oquendo probably deserves a payday as much as any boxer, that doesn't justify this fight. Oquendo should be fighting on the undercard against Ustinov or some other marginal contender.

K2 should offer a million dollar purse to Fury, Pulev, and Helenius and see if any of them bite. The fight with Fury would sell itself--obviously that's a big money fight. With Pulev and Helenius it could sell well if it was marketed right. At least with these guys it would be a contest and not a walkover. Are fans really going to pay a PPV fee for Wlad-Oquendo?
