    The younger Klitschko brother has signed to fight a
    rematch against Chris Bryd.In the first fight a few
    years ago,Klitschko knocked down Bryd 3 times in route
    to a easy victory.They will fight this November and I
    expect it to be another easy win for Wladimir.He will
    have to be convincing though because Chris always seems
    to win fights by decision even if he doesn't deserve to.
    The extra bright point to this is that when Wladimir
    wins,the Klitschko brothers will hold 2 of the 3 major
    Heavyweight Championship Belts.I love it! [​IMG]

    It should be a good spring.We have the Bryd/Klitschko
    fight for the belt.Golatta is going to fight for another
    belt.Golatta has been ripped off in two straight
    decisions.Even Don King agrees with that which suprises
    me.King says Golatta deserves another title shot.Then
    lastly we have V.Klitschko fighting Rahman in what could
    be one of the fights of the year.All 3 fights look good
    to me and we could have 3 of the 4 heavyweight
    championship belts owned by white guys.I like the sound
    of that.Maybe we will get some respect after next month
    is over.I will be watching all of these fights.

    I hope so white lightning. We need to get the belts back and unify the sucker. Then have a white fighter defend it. That's the only way whites will get any fair amount of credit.

    Keep an eye on Nicolay Valuev,he is 6'11 324lbs-his record is 40-0.He KO'd Attila Levin last saturday night and beat him into retirement.Valuev has trouble finding opponents.He has power but also can box!

    Levin is a tough fighter too. i really thought he could have been a contender. Valuev is 6'11 before they had him listed at 7'1 i guess they are going to keep striking him until somebody good agrees to fight him.


    they wanted to get tyson to fight him a few years ago then when freddy roach saw a clip of him he refused to let tyson do it.


    i hope james toney is up to the task.

    I got his height from Boxrec.com-Valuev came to the U.S a few years ago-I heard he had visa problems-does most of his fighting in Germany and Russia.I'd like to see him step it up this year.

    Very bad news for Wladd Klitscho.Bryd has backed out of
    the fight with him for two reasons,one he refuses to
    fight in Germany and two,he wants even more money.He
    was offer 2.5 million to defend his title again Klitschko
    and balked.Don King upped it to 3.5 million and he still
    won't fight.He is scared because he was knocked down
    twice in the last fight & lost badly.He will not fight
    for even 5 million.Don King said that Bryd is a disgrace
    and will never make even half the 3.5 he was promised
    ever again!Can you believe that King actually said
    something intelligent for once in his life.This really
    pisses me off.All Bryd says is that Klitschko didn't
    deserve to fight him anyway because he's a bum.Chris
    Bryd is a scarred little man who's days at the top are
    going to be over very quickley.Good riddens.There is
    still a slight chance but it is 90% a cancelled fight.
    I don't know if he will get any other shots for a long,
    long time.
    As far as the other fight,Rahman still hasn't
    signed again because of money and they are offering
    him 3 million dollars.He's not even champion.What
    a complete joke.It will be worked out though and I
    hope Vitaliy crushes him like the bum he is!

    It's a good sign when they start ducking the white guys!

    Yep, I agree with you jaxvid, a very good sign, but maybe they eventually will fight him, and then Klitscho will unify the title.

    Byrd, I may be wrong, is not going to fight anyone good, anytime soon. The last time he fought a Klitschko, he was diminated, and left the ring with his eyes closed and his face smashed up...and that was done by the brother that everyone thinks is a bum! Now he barely beats McCline, who was also pummeled by Wlad.


    Now if Byrd finally decides to fight one of the Klitschko's, he'll do for Wlad, hoping to cash in on Wlad's current problems. However I think this is very unlikely. The fight most people wanted is a rematch of Byrd and Golota. But, Byrd won't do that either. I'm sure he's looking for a suitable opponent...some like Monte Barrett[​IMG]
