    not just too small but not good enough. povetkin was treated like a child by wladimir, but that same povetkin has produced some of the best hw KO's in the last decade.

    Wlad would have been disqualified by a ref who actually followed rules to even a little degree.

    Disgusting performance from Klinchko

    Povetkins lucky Wlad held as much as he did. Probably would have been retired by Wlad that night had Wlad not spent half the fight grabbing him instead of punching him.

    Wlad spent half his time clinching and still had Povetkin on the canvas however many times, was it half a dozen? I forgot.

    Wlad spent half his time clinching because if he didn't he'd be sparked out.. There's a clear reason he clinches and that's because he doesn't know how to deal with opponents without it

    Jean-Marc Mormeck vs. Wlad Klitschko

    That matchup also works for..."HWs too old for their opponents"

    Yeah...I seem to recall Haye more-or-less dominating that fight...though it was a stinker.

    Valuev vs. Haye: "HWs too arthritic for their opponent".
