I love how you bastards ask who Wlad should fight...and then when names are tossed out...you dismiss each and every one.
Bottom line is you asked for a list of people he has not fought and those were just a few off the top of my head....and yes I'd throw JT in there as well...as anybody on the board has known that I've been BEGGING for that fight for years now.
And it has nothing to do with the fact that I think any of these people would beat Wlad....I'm just countering the argument that the likes of Chisora and adamek are all he has as possible opposition...and that's BS.
And saying Arreola is useless because Vitali already beat him is another BS reason....although it might be hard to tell...these boring buttfuck champions are in fact TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE....just because one beat up on a guy does not automatically mean the other would do the same.
Despite his loss to Vitali...I would much rather see an Arreola/Wlad fight than what we are getting.
although I agree with the idea that the division is thin....it's not like there is not other oppositon out there.
If you HONESTLY think some young, green fighter with only a handful of fights or a blown up lighter guy is somehow better than even a slow old Holy or a fat JT...you are lying to yourself.
My point in asking who he should fight, is saying that people criticize Wlad for fighting bums, but the fact is he's ALREADY virtually wiped out the division along with his brother.
Out of the top 10 there's only five people that he or Vitali hasn't beaten. And that's Valuev, Demitrinko, Adamek, Haye and Povetkin. Now out of those five, three have for one reason or another refused to get it on with them (Valuev, Haye, Povetkin).
that leaves Adamek, who's fighting Wlad this year and Dimitrinko.
Outside of the top 10 there are a few names like Solis and Tua, yet seriously are they going to be opponents that would make anyone really excited?
Are any of the names you came up with or I have listed, going to change the mantra of "oh great, here's another Wlad fight against a bum"?
Is there ANYBODY in the heavyweight division aside from Haye and MAYBE Adamek that anyone believes has a LEGIT chance at winning? Not just making the pressers entertaining, not creating a storyline, but to ACTUALLY have a shot at beating Wlad or Vitali?
The answer is no. I don't care how much trash Toney talks, why would anyone want to see that fight? He'll talk shit for three/four months as the fight is getting closer, then roll his fat ass into the ring and get pummeled for however long it'll last.
Shit, Haye can serve that exact purpose, and come in in better shape. And will more than likely put up a better offering.
People trash Wlad for his competition, but that's not his fault. He's done what he needs to do and that's practically erase the heavyweight division
