Good to see David Haye and Wladimir Klitschko have appeared to agree on a 50-50 split and could unify the Heavyweight Championship in the spring….
I know not many people in the States care, but this will be the biggest fight in European history….
I know Haye is undersized and doesn’t have the best chin in the world, but I believe he’ll knock out Wladimir in a huge upset….
The Hayemaker is a great athlete with fast hands and a thunderous right cross. He’s not a great fighter and a little unpolished, but I think he’ll reach Klitschko’s chin early and get him out of there….
Wladimir has improved since getting knocked out by Corrie Sanders and Lamon Brewster and getting knocked down repeatedly by DaVarryl Williamson and Samuel Peter, but there’s no exercise to imporve his greatest weakness; a glass jaw….
He’s been fighting a collection of stiffs for the past five years, who are in there only to survive. They stay on the outside of Wladimir’s long jab and take a prolonged beating before getting stopped….
Yes, Haye might get knocked out by Klitschko, but there’s no way he’s going to fight scared and sit on the outside. He’ll come right at Wladimir and with his superior hand speed will drop a right hand on him. The we’ll see that Klitschko still has no chin….
Wladimir’s brother Vitali, however, will be a different story….
After Haye knocks out Wladimir, he’ll get taken to school by Vitali and either lose by late knockout or lopsided decision….
Unlike Wlad, Vitali is a tough guy with a good chin and he’ll control Haye all night long….
LeBron James is taking a lot of criticism, especially from his fellow union members, for having the temerity to suggest contracting a few NBA franchises….
In his spiel, he mentioned that the NBA was a lot better in the 1980′s, “When you could have three or four All-Stars, three or four Hall-of-Famers, on the same team. The league was great then and not watered down with 30 teams the way it is now.”….
Reaction: LeBron is 100% correct and I’d like to see three or four teams kicked out….
Then you could have a dispersal draft and a lot of teams get stronger….
A great idea….
On draft day a few years ago, I stated that Kevin Love would be a bust and Timberwolves management were fools to draft him in the lottery….
True, he was fat and slow at UCLA; which I thought was a lack of discipline and desire….
But before the draft Kevin lost 30 lbs, got into great shape and has now developed into an All-Star and elite player. He’s averaging 22P and 6R, numbers which haven’t been seen in the NBA for quite some time….
I think I need to draft a letter of apology, as I did for Mitch Kupchak a few years ago….
Question: Why is it that Michael Vick goes to jail for his role in dog fighting, is universally condemned and not allowed to own a dog; while Brett Favre poses for a picture with an deer he shot in the head and not receive any criticism?….
In the picture, Favre is holding a deer by the antlers and smiling broadly for the camera; with the animal’s head half blown off from Favre’s assault rifle….
If that’s not cruelty to animals, I don’t know what is….
At least a pit bull has a chance to win, and even if he does lose it’s rare he’ll lose his life….
There’s no doubt dog fighting is barbaric and Vick killing dogs who lost fights got him exactly what he deserved….
But what about a guy who hides in the bushes, pours deer piss over his head, waits for a deer to walk by and then shoots him in the back of the head? Where’s the sport in that?….
To me, anyone who does that is just as guilty of cruelty to animals….
Anyone else see the hypocrisy?….
