The bigger they are........

Typical if semi-notable Boxing Card on HBO tonight.

Wladimir Klitschko attempted to resurrect his reputation tonight, and instead saw it buried deeper, probably for good.
He made an absolutely pitiful showing against unheralded journeyman Lamon Brewster. After starting off strong, WK punched himself out and was out on his feet & TKO'd by Round 5. This coupled with the humiliating KO by Corrie Sanders last year will probably seal the fate of his once-promising career.
I really thought that this was gonna be his time with Emanuel Steward taking over as his trainer, but alas Wlad proved himself to be another all-hype & no heart heavyweight.

It will be interesting to see if brother Vitali Klitschko will avenge the family name against Sanders or if this dynasty will be history. With that fight, & Byrd-Golota in the next few weeks, maybe we'll actually have an idea where this division is headed. Unified Champ in 2004? We can hope.

Elsewhere on the card tonight, Cory Spinks (son of Leon) defended his undisputed welterweight title successfully against Zab Judah. Spinks won a majority decision in what most thought was a close fight.

Another amusing side note, Roy Jones has taken George Foreman's place as a ringside commentator and really did a great job. He is articulate, funny & is as well versed in the sport as Big George. Snappy dresser too.
