The Klitschko bros appear to have no competition. None of their opponents appear to be well-conditioned, talented, athletic, or smart. Nothing but a bunch of unconditioned, sorry-looking bums. Quite the sad state of affairs. The very mechanical style of the Klitschkos works quite well with this bunch of slobs, and they can probably continue to dominate until they're practically using walkers.

Where in the hell is the next generation of young, athletic, talented, creative, powerful heavyweights to challenge these guys? This is ridiculous. We need some Ali, Tyson, Foreman, Holyfield, Frazier, and Holmes clones to shake things up.

Klitschko KOs Thompson again

This is truly pathetic. It's a shame that the Klitschko's legacies will be tainted by the dearth of talent in the heavyweight division. However, at the end of the day, they can't control their opponents and they did all they could do which is lay out everybody put in front of them. I have some hope for Seth Mitchell, but he just isn't ready yet. By the time he is, the Klits may have already hung their gloves up.

I don't want to degrade the significance of the Klits, because they come prepared and conditioned and I respect that. Kudos to them for sending all the pretenders home. To beat them, these guys need to step up their game, do more roadwork, got that extra mile, and lay off the cheeseburgers to properly prepare.

Don't know much about Mitchell. I'll have to look him up.

Thompson was slow and out of shape. The Klitschkos eat, sleep and breathe conditioning and are heavy hitters. Many of thier opponents have been bums.

All of the American athletes are playing football/basketball, etc. I firmly believe that we still have the best athletes.

Miguel Charr is Vitali's next opponent. I don't think he poses a threat and his inexperience will not help also.
