the returning klitschko has enraged sam peter by being alowed to fight oleg maskaev, peter has said that he aint realy a champion and should have anounced his return before he beat james toney, he then went on to say that the only reason klitschko had the title was because lewis retired. peter then added that they've tried to bribe him to move aside but said he wants to ko maskaev for the title then he'll ko both klitscko's on the same night.

this is good stuff finaly a bit of entertainment in the hw division. :thumbsup:

Peter knows that he's about to get side-stepped. Everyone wants Maskaev, and it's no wonder. He's just not that great, and everybody wants him, even Hopkins was trying to arrange a fight.

Thumbs down to Klitschko and anyone else who tries to circumvent Peter's right to fight Mask.

Thats messed up for Peter. He knows that if Don King has anything to do with this then Peter will move aside for Klitschko. King can put more hype to that fight rather than a Peter fight.

I dont think King has anything to do with any of these fighters.

Wait a second, Vitali has already returned? Has he fought anybody yet since returning? How can he just challenge a champ without fighting some lesser fighters after he returns? Wasn't his last fight in 2004 or something?

It is bull**** & Vitali is only coming back because he sees a smaller guy he thinks he can beat as champ.

According to the rules of the WBC, Klitschko is allowed a title opportunity due to his status as a former champion. WBC Rule 1.21 concerning championship defense obligations outlines that a champion must defend their title “either in a voluntary or mandatory defense” against a variety of potential opponents, which includes “former or retired world champion (upon majority vote of the Board of Governors)." The WBC Board of Governors has approved a title shot for Klitschko against Maskaev.

Either way Oleg should beat Vitali,his 2 yr layoff will hurt despite the lackluster Oleg.. The shame in all of this is that it will take forever for a real champ to emerge.:(

King has something to do with Peter I dont know if he has something to do with Vitali. When is this fight supposed to happen?

Anyway, it should be interesting to see this. Not-so-good Maskaev v. good, but just returning Vitali.

If I were Vitali I would probably start out slower with some lesser opponents to get back into boxing. But hey, what do I know. Maybe he really is that good, still.
