Yeah, it's ridiculous isn't it? Word is Glazkov and Charles Martin will duke it out for this trinket. If you've been following the news recently, Tyson Fury's made controversial remarks on homosexuality and women. My guess is those statements didn't help.
Hrungnir, I agree. Vitali would have made a fight of this. Wladimir's so risk averse his options were limited. He only upped his game in the last round. I think the rematch will be much the same, albeit bloodier.
For those of you who missed it, this was arguably the best HW match of the year:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3QqaDIgQhw
Anthony Joshua is the best prospect in HW Boxing since those 90's kings. My bet is the HW titles will be passed between Hughie, Tyson and Joshua over the next decade. The Heavyweight division is alive again.
