Nobody really is. Fury is the typical UK-Ireland fighter that is exciting and very good within his own sphere, but when pitted against foreign elite fighters he is shown to be severely overrated. The Heavyweight division is a little different since all the talent is in Europe, but the point remains true even then when UK fighters are shown to be very overrated time and time again. He can keep beating bums all his career just like his cousin Andy Lee, as soon as he steps up in level a little (not even a Klitschko) he will be exposed.

If he's not ready, how did he get a "B-"? Shouldn't he get like a "D" or "F"?
 
2012-07-19 02:30:32 PM
Who cares? The fights worth watching are all in the lighter weight classes
 
2012-07-19 02:55:44 PM
He's an Irish Traveller? Book him to fight both Klitschkos at the same time.

Everyone with a pulse has a chance against Wlad's chin. Everyone but a Brit, that is.

Tyson Fury? Is that like road rage, but it happens due to crappy frozen food?

The biggest enemy to the Klitschko brothers are the lack of any decent competition the past 10 or so years. They're very good, but their legacy is tarnished by a lack of challengers, though obviously it isn't their own fault they are in a crappy era for HW boxers.

Let's see.. the Klitschko brothers have height, reach, skill, ability, and intelligence that is, apparently, above and beyond anyone else in the heavyweight division, and will not fight each other, ever, and are heavyweights in an era when the division consists of them and 1000 meaningless nobodies who don't even qualify to lace up the Klitschko brother's gloves. Of course Tyson Fury isn't ready to fight Vlad Klitschko. 1986 Mike Tyson would not be ready to fight Vlad Klitschko. 1969 Ali would have been about the only heavyweight ready to fight either Klitschko brother, aside from Larry Holmes or Stevenson.

I agree he was exaggerating a bit, but the Klitchko's would give any of those guys a good fight. Maybe not win, but they'd deserve to be in the ring with them. Brewster beat him, what, 8 years ago and lost the rematch. Corrie Sanders beat Wlad 9 years ago, then lost to Vitali, so it's not like they were decimated and incapable of beating those guys. Give me one guy, one single heavyweight fighter who deserves to be in the ring with them right now. I can't think of a single one.

Povetkin had so much potential, it is a real shame Teddy Atlas came along to ruin his career and advise him against some very interesting match-ups. He is very cagey and could give either brother a good fight even if obviously physically outgunned. Don't get me wrong, his chances are very limited but I could see his skill being somewhat intriguing.

And as far as the dream matches mentioned, we have to take in account the K brothers might be superior athletes than any of the guys mentioned. Sports medicine and training methods (and dubious supplementation) have exploded over the last two decades which give them a good advantage not to mention their huge size and skill. Wlad's chin is a definite issue though.

Vitali would give any boxer from any era a decent fight for at least a few rounds. He's not fluid enough to win many against the all-time greats, but he wouldn't look stupid. Wlad stands absolutely zero chance against any of them, the greats would run a chin check on him all kinds of quick. This decade's heavyweights are AWFUL.
