It was announced that Wladimir Klitschko is leaning towards defending against the WBO mandatory challenger Tony Thompson instead of IBF mandatory Alexander Povetkin. I don't know about you but to me a Thompson fight (6'5 southpaw) would be a matchmaking error by Klitschko and his camp if he wants to rebound from the snoozer and tactical mess that was Klitschko v. Ibragimov. He wants to fight Thompson July 12 on HBO (do they not get tired of getting burned by this guy) and Povetkin later this year. If I were in his camp I would push for Povetkin now (which is pretty much a guarunteed action fight with Alexanders' pressing, no defense, high punch-output style and Wladimirs' low durability, power-punching style) and the winner of Chagaev v. Valuev later this year. But thats just me.
