Default Rumor on Vitaliís come back opponent. Guess who!

Vitali Kltischko has been in the gym in Germany and looking rather sharp. When asked who his next opponent will be, Vitlai who usually as serious as a heart attack could not hold back his smile and said someone who is world ranked and familiar to the fans in Germany. Ah, but who!

There is a rumor that negotiations are underway for a dual Klitschko card in Germany. Wladimir will matched vs Corrie Sanders. Vitlai will get his chance for revenge on Chris Byrd.

Wlad-Sanders II ?!?!?!
Vitali-Byrd II !!??!?!

Both men avenging the losses that most haunt their careers? It'll put the asses in the seats in Germany, that's for sure. I'll tune in.

I heard Wlad vs Brewster was a sold out show. 22,000 people purchased tickets. A potential repeat or revenge match with both K Brothers vs Sanders and Byrd would sell double the amount of tickets. It might have to take place in a futbol stadium.

These infos are wrong. Vitali is signed to fight McCline - there will be a presser next Monday to announce the fight and it will be shown on Showtime in the US /on tape delay).

For Wladimir: If he will fight again this year it will be in the US, though no opponent is chosen yet.

For the attendance at the CologneArena last Saturday: It wasn't sold out and therefore not fully packed. Though there were about 18.000 people in attendance.

There's absolutely no justification for VITLAY v Byrd or WALDO v Sanders at this point, none. I doubt it'll happen but if it does it'll be interesting to hear the spin merchants trying to defend it

good point, Sanders is probably way out of shape plaing golf and Byrd is done with. I don't really see Vitali fighting Byrd either. Actually I don't see Vitali coming back since he's already 'lied' about it 3 times i believe, but no doubt the redemption factor would almost guarantee a sold out crowd.

Sanders was already over the hill when he KO'd WALDO the last time, if there was to be a rematch it should have happened back then - beating up on Sanders now would prove nothing. Same thing with VITLAY and Byrd, VITLAY had plenty of time to fight Byrd, avenge his defeat and unify when he was champion but chose to sit on the title and do nothing significant instead.

As I said, I doubt this will happen, but I can't wait to hear the excuses for it if it does

I think Kessler/Calzaghe has a better chance of happeing

Mr. Fighting Weight,

Are you aware that Byrd was lucky in the first fight wit h Vitali. If not for the injury, Vitlai wins for sure. Byrd is still a top ten ranked opponent. This is a fine comeback fight. When Tyson came back he fought Peter McNeeley. When Foreman came back, he fought a bunch of stiffs. Vitali is going for a top guy right away, and wants to avenge the loss. Why not?

As for Wlad, he has an opportunity to pick a non mandatory title defense. In case you have not noticed, guys like Owen Beck, Monte Barrett, and Peter Okello were in title defenses recently. Sanders is better and more dangerous than Beck, Barrett or Okello. So in the context of things, picking Sanders as a non mandatory fight is not so bad.

Iíll venture to guess you donít like the Kltischko brothers. This is fine. As Ali used to say, I donít care if they want to see me win or lose. Either way itís another rear end in the seat. Carry on with your loud protest. It will only hype the event if it happens.

What sort of justification is needed for Vitali vs Byrd? However, we are most likely looking at Brock vs Byrd for the IBF eliminator anyways.

The fact that Byrd has been slipping for years, took a beating off WALDO and is more likely than not all shot to shit.

Of course I was expecting you to act like it's a legitimate match up, that's what Klit huggers do when their guy is matched up with yet another bum
