anyone watching the heavyweight championship fight tonight?
Ukrainian Vitali Klitschko tries to cement his stature as the heir apparent to Lennox Lewis when he faces Corrie Sanders on Saturday for the vacant WBC heavyweight championship. Klitschko (33-2, 32KOs) will also being trying to avenge his younger brother's devastating knockout defeat to Sanders who enters Saturday's fight as the decisive underdog ...


I've always been into boxing - just haven't been real excited about the heavyweights in the last several years...

I was going to post something about the fight, but I figured that nobody would really care too much about it.

I'm actually looking forward to tonight's fight. I believe this is considered the true, World Heavyweight Title, rather than simply a belt.

I have a bit more faith in Vitali than I do Wladimir. After seeing Vitali take those punches from Lewis in the 5th round of their fight, I think Vitali can take a punch. Sanders does have some power and is a southpaw, so I think he'll give Klitschko problems.

On edit- Although, I have to say that whomever wins this fight could end up ranking as one of the weakest champions in Heavyweight history.
