Klitschko def. Charr by TKO. Seems no one else in the Heavyweight division can stop these two. We may just see them retire as champs. Charr was a mismatch for him in a bloody stoppage.

HW division is probably the worst it has been in any era I can think of right now. Once the Klits retire the division will be unwatchable. I'm not even a big fan of either of them to begin with, but they are all we've got right now.

Charr is a classless douche. Did you see the tantrum he threw in his corner after the fight was stopped. Granted I felt it was a premature stoppage, but he acted like a real tool.

Bad stoppage imo. While Charr was clearly losing, he was getting to Vitali with some solid shots from time to time. Who knows, one punch can change the entire landscape of a fight especially in the heavyweight division.

The heavyweight division is bad because our best are playing other sports. On top of that, heavy's are either boxers with no power or punchers with no boxing skills. Its a sad day, when your best option is a former football player...that almost got KO'd in his last fight. I do like the Klitschko's but I feel they lack competition. Looking into the past, Tyson and Evander would have gotten to the brothers, given their footwork and power.

They are heavy hitters, Despite being a bit slow. There are no major contenders in line right now that is true. As they (Esp) Vitali are getting up there in years for competition there is not a lot of time to train or find a strong opposition.

I think Vitali is slowing down at this point, but Wlad Klitschko looked incredible against Haye. His control of distance, and his defense was top notch.

I used to be very critical of the Klitschko's, but it's clear they are students of the game and possess natural athletic ability and they can just put it together.

I'd say they deserve to be mentioned with the other greats throughout history.
