    Question Am I Missing Something

    The HW division has been dominated by Klit, brother's for a few year's now people keep on telling us
    all how good they are. Am I missing something I don't no about you but they are boring, is it just me but I feel they are killing the HW division.
    Excitement is a word I never use in any of there fight's, I no the division is not bristling with talent but
    would you not like to see both of them retired, I would.

    They're alright.. I guess. They wouldn't all that, if they were in Tyson-Holyfield era.

    That's it they are all right, I can see they don't generate much interest.

    I think they are better than most people would like to admit


    Theyd have lived with the best hws of any era, their style is extremely dull and frustraiting, but very effective

    And yes i hope they are beaten or retire soon, we wont have a decent hw division until they do

    The Klitschkos arent killingthe divison. They are just betterbthan whats around currently. Are we supposed to hope that they retire rather than continue beating people?

    Its a lack of promotion and keeping a flow of young fighters coming in. Boxing is a hard sport and the best fighters are only going to come from the poorer countires where it is a relatively easier way to make money and get themselves out of poverty. Unfortunately for the heavyweight division, the poor countries that produce boxers are generally small men. Unless someone goes and scouts somewhere like Nigeria for a big man that can fight (that would probably be bonkers as they are from Nigeria), then things wont change much.

    The division would only get worse if the Klitschkos left.

    The big headline of this year would likely be Holyfield vs. Povetkin. And I wish that was an exaggeration.

    there not exciting because everyone they fight sucks, not their fault, if someone can give them a challenge it would be a great fight to watch...remember klitchko lewis?

    They are talented, I like watching them fight. The problem is that yeh the division may be weak and you've 'gone through' most but Wlad only adds fuel to already existing scrutiny with a garbage fight like that. It was 100% pointless and more about padding a milestone 50 ko mark. Why validate what is already strong criticism by insulting the fans. I do think the Vitali fight was solid action and needed. When its good its good but you have to keep it on the level.

    You may feel I am over critical of them, but I like to be entertained sorry they are not for me.

    To be fair, I was in complete awe at the handywork of Vitali when he took care of Adamek.

    That style of defense was literally perfect for Adamek.

    But no one has said they are exciting, never here any body rave about there fight's that's the
    point very dull. Bit like Steve Davies the snooker player good but dull.
