Want to sit here and list off all the heavyweight champs there have been?

Think you and the other klan members might not like the colour of the results.

I know you're literally retarded but the guy who beat Wlad was also white.

povetkin is a tough dude .. sad to see him go down like that .. never happened before .. nothing to be ashamed of though .. he's an old guy and put up a decent effort against the champ .. I think joshua was just too big for him .. it seemed like povetkin's punches weren't going to really hurt joshua aside from that first combo in the first .. but after that it seemed like joshua was just walking through them and it was an uphill battle for povetkin to even hurt him after that .. and eventually he got gassed, joshua saw an opening and boom, landed that nasty right hand that finally got povetkin rattled

Yes Povetkin was dominating until he gassed out...

if he wouldn't have gassed, it definitely would've been close on the cards .. although I think they would've given it to joshua

he got 'gassed' because aj kept landing crisp, hard jabs to his solar plexus from the opening bell. most underrated punch/strategy in boxing. floyd in his later years went to that a lot. saps a guy's energy even more than a hard hook to the kidneys.

aj was really well-prepared for the fight. i noticed in his past fights he tends to gas early himself and keep his hands down, exposing his questionable chin. but last night he kept that right way up glued to his head, knowing that povetkin's best punch is that lethal short left hook. maybe the best hw left hook since tommy morrison.

good scrap all around.

Vitaly is definitely better even though he is more methodological. Wlad just donít have the chin but he do have the fast hands but he is definite an all time great. His reign is just on the weak era of this division. Ironically, 2 of the names that are white and always mentioned on that top 10 ATG at heavyweight class have dominated their weak era as well.
