    In the German media there are reports wlad plans to fight fury for the wbc in a one fight comeback.
    I want to see that!!!

    And wlad told fury that he should stay classy with his words (usyk and joshua) because he was tested positive before his fight with klitschko :boxing1

    I don't. I'd rather see Fury-Usyk.

    I'm not sure what the Klitschko brothers and Usyk's relationship truly is. Usyk didn't seem too pleased when Vitali climbed up on the ring apron and congratulated him after Usyk defeated Joshua.

    The Klitschkos WERE the Ukrainian boxing scene. They were the top dogs.

    Now, Usyk is a heavyweight champion. He has all the belts Wlad held.

    And Wlad wants to fight Fury? Sounds like Wlad (and Vitali) are trying to prevent Usyk from fighting Fury (and possibly winning).

    If Usyk did win, Usyk would win ALL the heavyweight belts ... something neither Wlad nor Vitali ever did.

    Wlad is a "nice guy" and so is Usyk. But this seems like Wlad trying to one-up Usyk ... in a "nice guy" way, without ever mentioning Usyk.

    So the Klitschkos can retain their lofty positions.

    I wouldn't be surprised if their relationship was more like Jack Johnson and Joe Louis ... Louis and Ali ... they are just more polite about it.

    @Dubblechin I agree, there's something fishy going on between Usyk and Klitschkos.

    All those friendship thing between Usyk and Vitaly Klitschko seemed fake, Usyk looked he isn't really happy with Vitaly's "support". You sense something is not sincere when you look at it.

    I would say Klitschkos are jealous of Usyk's success.

    Fury posted a video this week saying he thought Usyk was on PEDs.

    Usyk didn't respond. But WLAD did.

    Wlad responded directly to Fury saying Fury was the one who tested positive before their fight. And Wlad totally inserted himself in between them trying to start something with Fury and shift the discussion away from Fury-Usyk, which Fury was trying to hype.

    Wlad didn't defend Usyk so much as attack Fury. Wlad wants to fight Fury before Usyk does.

    The Klitschkos are hyper competitive. They don't want a fellow Ukrainian boxer accomplishing MORE at heavyweight than they did.

    Isn’t it more of a political rift between the Klitschko brothers and Loma and Usyk? I’m not even going to pretend to be an expert on Ukraine vs Russia politics, but from what I’ve heard, Loma and Usyk are perhaps a little more sympathetic towards Russia than the Klitschkos are. I might have this totally wrong but I believe this is what I’ve heard from others more knowledgeable on the subject than myself.

    Well usually I'd say a guy that old and inactive should keep out of it but todays heavys ain't all that and Fury seems a lot more flat footed lately

    Klitschkos had 15 years at the top. They should have good grace, sportsmanship and know when to give someone else their glory and accolades.

    Wlad is still obsessed with what Fury did to him.

    This seems to go beyond Wlad being obsessed with what Fury did to him.

    Fury posted video after video insisting he's never cheated before the last Wilder fight. Wlad never said anything. Wlad never said anything when Fury and Joshua looked like they were going to fight.

    Wlad didn't respond directly to Fury on social media for years about PED use until Fury posted a video about Usyk and PEDs this week ... because Fury has begun beating the drums for a Usyk fight.

    THAT seemed to cause Wlad to start attacking Fury.

    That message from Wlad was his version of "Let's Go Champ!"

    Wlad didn't seem to mind when it looked like Joshua could win all the belts or Fury could win all the belts.

    But it seems like Wlad doesn't want to entertain the possibilty that Usyk (a fellow Ukrainian) might beat Fury and win all the belts. The Klitschkos never could win all the belts.

    I would love to see it! If the version of Fury from the 3rd Wilder fight showed up, then Wlad would be very very game. If Fury shows up in shape then it will be a long, hard, and frustrating night for Wlad. Either way I'd love to see it as Wlad is the man.

    Fury stops Wlad today & easily.

    Better fight than Whyte though, probably more money also.

    The superfight nobody expected.

    Pretty sure Fury will pressure or be going after Wlad if they fought again...

    Fury isn't going back to 250 pounds slippery boxing off a Flicking jab anymore. He is getting old. He can beat Wlad with his activity and gas tank. Wlad will gas and fall.

    Jab and grab won't work against Fury.

    I think Wlad should fight Shannon Briggs. It might attract audience. And it would be a more fair fight.
