He is massive , he doesnt even protect himself , the only protection he uses is his jabs and keeps the opponent at a distance .

Dr Steelehammer is his nickname.

His stats say he is 6ft 6in (198cm) and weighed in at 112kgs.

The dude is a modern day giant.

Given the physical differences Alex was never going to outbox him. He had a punchers chance but big K did what he wanted until he finished it. Brave to even get in the ring but clearly over matched. The Ukrainian is simply on another level as he has proved for about a decade.

He needed to get under the guard earlier and rock him

He couldn't do that and was kept at a distance

Klitschko is a freak, best heavyweight I've seen. I was a massive Lennox Lewis fan and this guy just has so much boxer and so little brawler he's great to watch.
Hope Leapai can go away and improve for another title shot

Both Klitschko boys can box a bit. They are a shining light in that decaying world of boxing. I love watching both Vitali and Wladimir.

Yeah. It's not a shame that he lost, as, at least IMO, it was on the cards. However, the manner in which he lost - 3 rounds - will no doubt end any hope of him exceeding what he's achieved to date.

Was done by a better fighter - a far, far better fighter - but he can hold his head high for what he's achieved, which ultimately led to the chance he received this morning.

Keep your eye on Jarrod 'Left Jab' Fletcher. He is in the same weight class as Geale and is his sparring partner.

He has a fight with Daniel Jacobs for the vacant WBA Middleweight title left by GGG.

The company I work for sponsor him and I have met him on a lot of occasions. Very nice, down to earth young fella.

Yes he won gold for Australia in the commonwealth games before turning pro. He had a few shoulder injuries which kept him out for a while.

Is his nickname a double bluff, and he's actually right handed, a Furner style smokescreen?

Boxer attacks referee after losing fight at European youth championships

CROATIAN boxer Vido Loncar has been suspended for life by the national boxing federation after he attacked a referee at the European youth championship in Zagreb after losing the match.
Loncar was “suspended from boxing for life” over the “brutal attack on an official,” a federation statement said after an emergency session of its executive committee over the incident.

Why the **** did the other boxer leg it? He was the only one in a position to defend the referee.

He's got a bit to answer for himself, the gutless wonder.

From the comments I've seen the guy who hit the ref seems to have ties to people who you wouldn't like to get on the wrong side of. I have absolutely no idea if that's true or BS, but it might explain it a little bit.

Either way, shocking form.

I see Geale is giving him a shot.

On a related note - do yourselves a favour and have a look at the Mundine interview on fox sports :lol:

Go Choc,

WBC Champion of the world at 39 years of age. Truly one of our elite sportsmen.

It would be frigging hilarious if he got a shot at Mayweather. The bogans would burn down Campbeltown.

Yep, good on him - he looked good last night.

I don't think his ability as a sportsman has even been in question.

Wanker or not, I liked his sign off last night - "got a few more left in me, make a few more mil, then I'm out" haha.

Danny Green
Mundine you banana you couldn't put a hurt on a rice pudding!
This is like a broken record. You coming out of the blue making false claims, and then me responding making you look silly once again.
Ten years ago I stupidly gobbled up all your shots , yet marched forward after you with you on your bike till the final bell sounded. You could not put me away. I was in shocking physical condition, to the point where an average club fighter would've knocked me over, yet you failed to even put a dent in me.
Is that why you have been terrified to take the only available payday you will get. Am I that scary?
The weight issue is all you have from keeping me off you Choc you cat.
I fought real world champions at cruiser weight when I was only a blown up lightheavyweight , gave away over ten kilograms, won some, lost some, but I was not afraid. If the payday against those beasts was what we would generate, I would have done it blindfolded. But you are not made of that kind of resolve. You have been dropped nine times in your last two losses, your old man had to rescue you from being put to sleep against a guy no one here had ever heard of. Luckily for you not many people were watching .
Yet you are back peddling once again from the only payday left for you.
Are you trying to say you weigh 70kg's and have to come in at 82kg's??!!
That's ridiculous. You walk around at 78 kg minimum. You have stopped starving yourself with your awesome crusade to fight floyd mayweather and would very easily get to 82 kg, as you played first grade football heavier than I've ever weighed!!
I am already coming down in weight to fight you if you have the balls.
I don't want you to come in at 84kg's! I couldn't care less what you come in at.
You are simply shitting yourself .
You have stated below that you want to keep 'your fans' posted. Take your family to your mum n dads house with the rellies for dinner, all your fans will be under one roof .
Have a nice weekend tiger.
