    Here's Zipperface picking against Wlad http://youtube.com/watch?v=Fm7ePupL74k Every time he picks against Wladimir he says it's because he might be weak mentally and can be beat if someone pressures him. Well Teddy.......Thompson did that and it didn't work [​IMG] So you'll have to come up with another cover up reason to pick against Wlad.

    Boy, that Teddy Atlas is one heck of an objective analyst. LOL.The hatreddirected towards Klitschko and the Euro fighters by the media is very intense.

    I really thought Thompson would get knocked out much earlier in the fight. He was a little better than I thought but finally one of the last great black hopes lost.

    I just hope the Muslims don't blow up England before Wlad can kill the big mouth British spook Haye. [​IMG]

    Exactly.

    Yes, victory is most important, and of course we're all glad that Wlad Won. But entertainment does count for something. I want to watch a fun fight. To be fair, any HW will look awkward against Thompson. Wlad, Peter, Chagaev, all of them. Nonetheless, it was not a good fight, it was not aesthetically pleasing.

    I wish that he would mix it up more. He showed glimpses of what he's capable of, like when he threw a right hook to the body, and followed it up with a right uppercut. Sweet! He also doubled up the hook, to the body and to the head. Nice! Why can't he do more of that? And not just pawing jab- pawing jab- pawing jab- right cross? Surely being less predictable would make him more effective, not to mention more entertaining as well.
