Spoiler Alert:









Wow, what a bullshit decision again for Alexander. Some judge had it 96-93 for Devon..wtf. He should have 3 losses on his record now.

Matthysse gets jobbed again

He has wins over Judah and Alexander in my book and is still undefeated. Devon got some old fashioned home cooking tonight.

And the WBC needs to stop with that silver, sapphire, cubic zirconia belt bullshit. Now we have to watch that dude who KO'ed a terrible Ray Austin get beaten like a drum in Germany against one of the Klits

When mentioning good to great fighters that aren't nearly as big a star as they should be, doesn't Bernard Hopkins have to take the cake? Hes absolutely an all time great(Id probably have him top 25), is doing amazing and unprecedented things for his age, is probably the 2nd most dominant middleweight champ ever(or was), and yet hes never actually been a star other than to huge boxing fans.

Because his style of fighting doesn't appeal to masses. He's the Tim Duncan of boxing.

I know who Andre Ward is, but very little. I don't see how Boxing can compete with the way that the UFC markets and operates. Boxing needs a major overhaul. Someone like Zuffa needs to start their own promotion and get all (or most) the best fighters under one banner. Make these guys fight each other, and lets see who the best is. Win or lose, you put on a good fight, and you get another fight. I'm so tired of the way Boxing is ran. It's the same old 'dodge everyone that poses a real threat until I can get a big payday' bullshit. Honestly, I don't follow Boxing much anymore, so correct me if I'm wrong.

Haye doesn't have a shot. It's all hype.
I give him props for taking away the belt from this talent-free giant but the others were one the lowest level possible.
They are not even good enough to be Klitschko's sparring partner. true story.

People say he's fast and can move around the ring blablabla but fact is, even Ruiz was able to land his jab so it can't be that hard. Expect a lot of rabbit punches for Saturday but it will not help.....

Yeah dude Heavy weight division was lame because that giant had the belt and everybody was scared to fight him.

Agreed man but i think if Klitschko doesnt knock him out Haye will win on points man due to the rabbit punches that ll get scored.

the division was lame because of Valuev??? you serious??
Actually the WBA title should also be Klitschko's because Chagaev had it and he was beaten by Klitschko... but it's ok, we can call the fight 'unification fight' now....

Haye has to be mind-boggling dominant to get the win in germany by points.
no, no. I guess he don't try Valuev-tactics but comes on fire and try to get Wlad out early.

What i mean is for his belt Division, because nobody wanted to fight him to take his belt, it was boring. Now the belts can be unified i think we'll see some good fights.

Again true man and point will be close, but my first option is still Wlad to ko him in the 4th.
