Snooze Fest

Sunday, July 13th, 2008

What a bore.  The heavyweight bout 7/12/08 between Wladimir Klitschko and Tony Thompson was so tedious that the 11th round knockout barely caught my attention.  This is exactly what is making this division so unaproachable to American fight fans.  You have the best heavy weight out there (Wladimir Klitschko) fighting inconsistently and without apparrent passion.  Also the opponents are uninspring……Sultan, Tony?  The division needs a hard punching, chance taker who talks the talk but can back it up as well.  

Whatever happens please don’t let the next fight for Wladimir be with John Ruiz.  That bout would be so boring that I doubt I would ever be able to watch another bout.
