Razor Ruddock is coming back!! He's 48 now, i do believe, and he wants the Klitschko's like everybody else. lol Ruddock says he's fighting 3 fights this summer. From the article I read, he's in great physical condition... Who Knows?
David Hayve and Chisiro are fighting..
"you glassed me!"
Yeah, these two idiots should make for some fireworks on July 14th.
Watched the last Kimbo fight, way to bore me, Brian Green, some little slugging undersized white boi, put a whoppin on him for all 4 rounds, but when it counted, Kimbo knocked him out, just 3 seconds left in the 4 round bang'er.. Scorpion 4 might be a great alternative, or maybe Batista and him can team up in the wrestling ring, since Batista was Mr. I wanna fight mMa guy.
enough of me rambling..
Should Wladimir Klitschko fight Vitali Klitschko?
we all know it won't happen, but SHOULD IT?
I say yes
and also say that Vitali would win.

OK I will take this down off the board since the time remaining seems to be counting up and not down.
Should they fight? In any other sport there would be no question but in boxing I say leave it up the to brothers. Boxing is a different kind of sport than most others. In most other sports you can go all out without putting your opponent in any real physical danger, or it is usually very remote. In boxing you are trying to concuss your opponent. If they don't feel comfortable doing this why force it? You won't get a good fight as they will be holding back and not even a great indication who is better.
Who wins? 5 years ago there was no question in my mind. Vitali IMO is the more fluid fighter, had the better chin, better endurance and was the more aggressive fighter. All Wladimir has is the better one punch power where Vitali gets his guys out with an accumulation of punches.
Today Wladimir wins. Vitali is now 40 and he is showing major signs of slowing down. His stamina isn't what it used to be which was a big part of his game. Vitali for the first time is now the more vulnerable of the two brothers. Vitali himself knows this as he has said his retirement is near.

Vitali is older and wiser...
Vitali also has, A GREAT CHIN...
my boi Sam Peter, who's falln off the earth beat wladimir to the punch 3 times..
years ago, Vitali's old, get it!
But Vitali has been the most dominant Klitschko and will remain.
Wladi hasn't fought anybody like Vitali, and Vitali, he just basically retired Lennos Lewis, scared of the almight L..
Vitali might have slowed down, and Wladi's gained a step or two, but that's not enough..
When you think of the Klitschko's, and i don't see how you can pick the younger one.
More than being the "big bro", Vitali, he's the better boxer.

The Vitali that fought Lewis no longer exists. That Vitali would clean Wladimir's clock but not anymore.
Vitali was huffing and puffin vs Chisora, a guy who lost to Tyson Fury. The Vitali that fought Lewis knocks that bum out. This is how far he has fallen.
Wladimir was never that far behind his brother as you would think. Father time has taken enough away form Vitali that he wouldn't be able to beat his brother anymore. Happens to us all. Wladimir has been a dominant champion, do you really think it would take anything less than a prime top fighter to beat him? This guy barely ever loses a round, only Mayweather has been more dominant.
The problem with your reasoning is when YOU think Klitschko brothers you think they are both in their prime. That is not a fact anymore. Vitali WAS the better boxer but in recent fights he hasn't been as strong or as quick as he used to be. His little bro now has him in these categories.
You don't just make comments like "yea, yea" in boxing about someone getting old. Shane Mosley got old too and look how different he is. Vitali isn't completely shot but he can't face the best anymore.

Neither Klitschko is in his prime in my opinion..
It's just that Vitali has the KNoWN better chin, and he's a more polished boxer. Vitali would get in on Wladi's odd stance.
Vitali has been knocked down when?
that's my question to YOU.
Vitali might have looked old in the Chisora fight, but who's to say ,what Chisora would do with Wladi..
If David Haye WOULDA actually BOXED, and not tried to run and just throw the "big one", Wladi might be coming off an L...
I'm not the biggest Wladi fan,and we all know the heavyweight division is weak sauce.
Yes, Wladi and Vitali deserve their due, not matter the competition, but Vitali is far better than his little bro, which isn't saying anything bad on Wladi's part, he's not too far behind.
Father time is cool, but with age, the wiser you are. Vitali's skills>Wladi's, sorry!
Wladi can knock 98% of the heavyweight division, but Vitali, he's the same breed, different and stronger warrior.

I never said Vitali has been knocked down [outside of kickboxing, one KO there]. I am telling you his stamina and strength aren't what they used to be.
Wladimir isn't a weakling in the ring, in fact he as dominant a fighter as you can find right now. David Haye fought the way he did because he would have knocked out had he engaged Wladimir, there is no if here. Ifs and buts are a poor way to argue anyways.
If you look at the recent fights Wladimir has looked far better and he is taking on the better competition. Vitali has been facing guys like Albert Sosnowski and Shannon Briggs and going the distance or going far too late in the fight. Wladimir has earned his spot at champion of the division by defeating Chagaev, Chambers and Haye.
Wladimir's stance isn't odd as you would say, it is actually textbook perfect. He is trained by Emmanuel Steward who known for preaching balance and having his fighters stand tall. His stance isn't odd in the least.
Father time has made Vitali slow and his style doesn't do well with slowing down. I like Vitali far more but I have also watched him since his Olympic days, the Vitali you speak of no longer lives, little bro is better now.
