    I'm wondering when Wladimir Klitschko will defend against mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin. Its been awhile since Povetkin beat Chambers in the eliminator, and since Klitschko beat Thompson for his mandatory WBO defense.

    Referendum this fight is already set for December. I made mention to this in the Vitali vs Peter thread. Povetkin is very talented but he's not going to win this one. Also take a look at this article. http://www.badlefthook.com/story/2008/1/27/34513/5083

    This guy makes me sick. Saying Chambers won the fight? Chambers is possibly the best pure fighter out there. It never stops.Edited by: whiteathlete33

    Even Chambers freely admits he lost the fight.

    Did anyone read the latest sports illustrated. There is an article about Wlad and Vitali. It said that either the division is so competetive that Vitali beat Peter or it's so weak that a guy can come out of retirement after four years and beat a champ. Well first of all Vitali was the best heavyweight before retiring. So what if he hadn't boxed in 4 years. As long as he stayed in shape which he obviously did he shouldn't have a problem.

    I do not like this fight. It will just be a discouragement for Povetkin. Povetkin beat Chambers but he ate a lot of jabs from the light puncher to do so. Wladimir's jabs hurt. Wladimir can win this fight based on his jab and movement alone. Povetkin has never seen anything like Wladimir in his life and he will look amateurish. Povetkin is better off fighting a Ruiz or someone else and learning something.

    It's definetly too early for this fight. Povetkin should face a few more contenders before he goes after Klitschko. This is another fight I won't watch because I love both of these guys.

    I like both of these fighters as well. I really cannot see it going more than 4 or 5 rounds. Povetkin gets hits alot by straight rights. We seen that in the Chambers fight. Only difference is, it is one thing for Eddie Chambers to land a half dozen straight rights on ya, and something completely different when Wlad Klitschko lands straight rights on you. I will watch it if I can because I love boxing. Wlad KO 5.

    I believe this fight will be a better fight than most people think.

    Povetkin IMO seems to get hit too easily. I think this will be a KO for Wlad.

    It will be entertaining. Povetkin is a ring warrior who won't go into a defensive shell after being hit a few times, like Chambers and Rahman did. He'll land more on Wlad than anyone has in awhile.

    But I think he'll be KOed sometime in the middle to late rounds.

    A fight I would love to see is Klitschko-Boystov. Boystov is probably the fourth best heavyweight right now and I think he could give Wlad some problems.

    Klitschko-Povetkin: K2 Wins With a Huge Bid

    More from espn.com:

    So the Jewish Supremacist HBO boss Ross Greenburg doesn't want to show two former Olympic heavyweight champions fighting for the IBF, IBO, WBO and Ring heavyweight titles. Is it because Wlad is white?

    Parody, if I recall correctly almost all of Lennox Lewis's fights were shown on US television. It didn't seem to bother them then that there was a heavyweight champion that wasn't from the US. Plus Lewis is considered an all time "great."

    It would be tragic having two of the top three HW's face off and not have the fight shown in the States. Povetkin is easily the biggest threat to Wlad in the HW division right now and AP will be the top dog (IMHO) when the KlitschkO brothers retire... Show the damn fight, that's why I pay for HBO and Showtime! [​IMG]

    Lennox Lewis only had one of his championship fights not broadcast on HBO. That was his first which was a DKP PPV against Tony Tucker.

    I just hope if they do, they give Al Bernstein the night off. He'll need to strain himself to say anything positive about either fighter, since both are white.

    Having just Steve Albert and Antonio Tarver cover it would be better. Albert is Jewish too, but he's generally not as negative in his comments about white boxers as Bernstein. And Tarver doesn't seem to be at all racist.

    I like to save the videos of these fights and watch them again from time to time. Like most people I prefer English commentary, but not if it's too negative like Teddy's commentary during Gomez-Vitali, or Bernstein's commentary during Calzaghe-Mitchell and Calzaghe-Sheika.Edited by: Parody

    Blacks have the advantage when Jewish Supremacists make the decisions for the sports networks. They don't like negroes much either, but they don't hate them as much as they hate white gentiles.

    Right! black.s are only a tool of the jewish media, back in the 70's and 80's,
    if a black fighter lost to a white guy, the media would go all out too destory them. Edited by: lost

    Blacks also got corrupt decisions back in the 40's and 50's against White fighters too. Back then Black fighters were largely mob controlled and got crooked judging if they went up against a top notch freelance White fighter. Even Joe Louis was managed by Black mobsters, but he didn't seem to have bought and paid for judges. Edited by: white is right

    HBO is apparently tired of the Klitschko's. Tribesman Ross Greenburg says HBO has no interest in televising Klitschko fights unless it's against David Haye(he's ducked them numerous times) or Tomasz Adamek. From Fightnews:

    HBO Sports President
    Ross Greenburg has again ripped the Klitschko brothers. IBF/WBO/IBO
    heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (54-3, 48 KOs) and WBC
    heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (40-2, 38 KOs) have both have
    previously fought on the network numerous times and routinely fill huge
    soccer stadiums when they fight, but Greenburg says there is no longer
    any interest in them from HBO. "I'm really souring on the heavyweights,"Â￾
    Greenburg was quoted as saying strangely on ESPN's website, rather than
    that of his own network. "There doesn't seem to be any interest in the
    U.S. and there doesn't seem to be any heavyweights besides David Haye
    who would have any juice in challenging the Klitschkos. We're out of the
    heavyweight division. We're not playing in that sandbox right now. It
    doesn't make any sense for us. The fights happen over there [in Europe],
    they're on tape delay. There is just very little interest in this
    country."Â￾ Greenburg added that HBO definitely will not televise Wladimir
    Klitschko against unbeaten Teddy Atlas-trained Olympic gold medal
    winner Alexander Povetkin (19-0, 14 KOs), nor Vitali Klitschko's next
    fight unless the opponent is David Haye or Tomacz Adamek. Previously
    Greenburg had famously stated that the American public can't tell which
    brother is which.</font></font>


    That last sentence is just too much. The DWF's apparently can't tell which Klitschko is which but they have no problem telling their favorite negro affletes apart.
