I have not seen Povetkin fight.
Just wondering how people rate his chances against Wlad?
Wlad by KO.
Does anyone give a fuck? The heavyweight division stinks.
Lewis did an interview with a magazine over here this week saying he has no doubt he could come back and bust all the heavies up again if he wanted to.....I believe him.
Oh but the good news is Amir Khan is making a comeback in December, HURRAH!!!!
I anticipate he'll be making his next comeback sometime around June.
It will be entertaining as long as it lasts.
Wlad by brutal KO.
The fight is of, Povetkin injured - Wlad is fighting Rahman.
Khan hired Freddie Roach as his new trainer even though Roach won't be in his corner because of Pacquiao-De La Hoya. Somebody thought that one out well.
Oh shit they could market that as "The Battle of China"
Could end in a double KO :eeeeeky:
Rahman has as much chance of knocking out Wlad as me marrying Penelope Cruz.
Last act of a desperate man....."it wasn't my chin, it was the trainers fault" :lol:
I was amazed that a credible guy like Roach would be associated with such a piece of shit to be honest. The saddest thing about all of this is Khan is already rich, he's made a fortune out of boxing despite being useless.
I haven't seen Rahman since he fought Ruiz to be honest, presumably he's slipped? If the Rahman that fought Lewis in SA somehow shows up I'd say Wlad is in for a fight, but I suspect that version of Rahman died years ago. The double KO thing was just a joke....
Oleg Maskaev knocked him the fuck out twice...and he barely hung on to a pathetic draw with a fat and old James Toney (who has no business fighting as a heavy).
Wlad vs. Rahman is not a fight at all. Presumably HBO will televise it as a true heavy championship match up and in the end a great hard fought victory by Wlad Klitschko.
All I can say is Lampley will be in true form on that night.
Got to agree that it's probably going to be one sided. But Rahman knows Wlad has a glass chin and if he taps it he might strike gold. I mean, brewster and peter are some of the people who have put wlad down. rahman is probably below their levels but not by much if anything. After watching Wlad against Ibraghimov, I could never bet on him to beat someone like Rahman. He's too tentative and safety first. Has a great arsenal but too tentative with it IMO. We'll see a lot of jabbing by Wlad and some right hands from time to time. he'll probably stop rahman in the mid to late rounds but i wouldnt count on it
He seems to get more and more tentative and safety first from fight to fight. Effective but somewhat tedious.
Can we say the same of Ricky Hatton who has hired Mayweather Sr.? If you need some extra money I've heard the Hatton camp is looking for a translator.
Wlad by KO in one round...
