Maybe he meant to say "unwatchable"

Nonsense, both have been beaten multiple times.

If Wlad gets past Pulev, he will face Stiverne or Wilder next. Either guy has more than enough power to KO Wlad. Plus, he's not getting any younger.

Wlad continues to polarize the boxing community. Mostly butthurt blacks and Hispanics. Simply because he is too good... And white.

Hilarious.

At least big George can look past the superficial and call it like it is.

Did you watch the fight? The dude fought like he was scared shitless of being hit by a guy with 11 KO's. Throw a jab and immediately reach in to grab, get grazed by a punch an flailing his hands trying to tie up. The fact that he KO'd Pulev by simply throwing a hard left hook should show you that he's fighting way below his potential for sheer safety reasons. When Lewis was in this phase of his career, he had decided to stop fighting safe and go out there and start destroying people. That is what Wlad needs to do.

Apparently he's real big in the gay white boy community though.

Must be fine with you since you've got the lockdown on the Hispanic gay incest side of things.

I watched a dominating victory by a very smart champion. One who showed skill, speed, power, and athleticism combined with a cagey ability to spoil his opponents offense.

Multiple dominating knockdowns. And that final hook. Awesome.

You must not have watched the same fight I did.  I saw a real champion totally dominate and KO (not TKO, not win by points) a #1 contender.  You must either not be paying attention or, for some reason, really not like the guy.

Based on the rules of boxing, as soon as Manny taught WK to fight tall, he pretty much became unbeatable. The only guy in recent memory who would be able to beat him, in my opinion, is Lennox. And that would be a fairly close fight.

I wonder why it's called 'spoiling' the opponents offense with Vlad but when it comes to Ward it's called 'hugging'..

Pulev seemed to demonstrate, if we didn't know already, that a fighter of comparable size can tag Klitschko clean. He can't clinch as effectively or pin his opponent's action with his reach as easily. Without the athleticism to hurt Klitschko with single shots, though, and without the defense to evade the retort, that size is in vain. Klitschko's chin isn't as vulnerable as it once seemed and his power in both hands appears legit. To me, there were clearly fighters in history that had the size and athleticism and defense to get to Klitschko.

I'm unsure if there's any around today, however. I'm not even sure there's any that have two of the three elements mentioned.

Yeah. I just don't see him losing to anyone unless he gets caught by something big. And I doubt anyone in the division today can hit him with bigger shit than Peters did. And he was a beast to have to keep off for 12 rounds.
