    It was Klitschko's STYLE that made the HW scene such a borefest.

    And yes - COVID is having a very bad effect on the sport right now - but that will change....

    Thanks for the correction this makes it even worse. USADA shows up and catches him in the act at home.. You can’t make this up..

    Wlad stood at the top of the mountain at least and took on all challengers. Fury barely fights at all. Hasn’t even defended a belt yet. Lol.

    It's not at an all time low, however...

    When it comes to these exhibitions, there needs to be a clear separation between an exhibition and a bona fide high level/title/unification fight. Perhaps it needs to be organised, like a 'legends' circuit, so some of the more gullible out there understand what they're watching.

    I told people this would happen years ago. Was very easy to see what was looming on the horizon.

    I think the pandemic has amplified its shortcomings. While the UFC is building a mega-facility in Mexico, boxing can barely put a big card together. The lack of structure is appalling.
