Wladimir Is Am All-Time Great

“APART from the clinching, which I find annoying and not the most developed part of his arsenal, Klitschko is a GREAT classic boxer, with some of the finest abilities to time and place punches at different speeds and angles, not to mention extreme cool, anticipation, and calculation, as good in some respects as anyone we've ever seen in the division – he is NEVER caught unaware or off-guard, not since the Sanders fight – and his KO percentage has not gone down, so clearly there's some serious punching going on. It is NOT exciting the way our fan-favorites are, because it is never allowed to heat up….but, in answer to your question, for disciplined, classic, precision boxing, 90% of his game makes me look forward to his fights. If he had Larry Holmes' blood-lust – an average puncher but an ATF jab-cross ring general who loved bringing the pain – Wlad would be more enjoyable for the masses. But, it is what it is, and, to be fair, most of his overwhelming wins DID NOT involve much clinching, and were so utterly one-sided that you'd have to be blind not to appreciate the discipline and sheer mastery of the style. You do say you recognize his effectiveness, so, I think you get it.” –Mortcola gives a rock-solid assessment of what Wlad brings to the table

Another stellar year from our Forum crew, the best in this known universe. Results for Reader of the Year are still being tabulated. In a moment of weakness, I hired CJ Ross to help with the computation and, well, it didn’t go well. Happy New Year to the best and brightest amateur scribes! –Editor Mike

“Boxing is full of optical illusions. And I give Money May MAD props for doing a mix of Houdini and Marlin The Magician. Wow! Money May fought a club-fighting-like humbug in “The Cali Ghost.” And a hyped-up B fighter in Canelo. The promotions were grand to get eyeballs and easy impressionable minds behind those PPV screens. Because the live gates didn’t sell out.” –Radam isn’t sold on this being the year of Money May

“It must be said that even a wounded, war torn Martinez is still a more dangerous threat than Canelo for Cotto. The powers that be must be expecting a phenomenal turnout.” —Brown Sugar says that Martinez is a tougher out for Cotto than Canelo
