Thompson next for Klitschko!
IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (50-3, 44 KOs) will next defend his world titles against WBO mandatory challenger Tony Thompson. "The fight will take place this July in Germany," Klitschko told BILD. The 6'5 Thompson is currently the top American hope in the heavyweight division with a record of 31-1 with 19 KOs. He has 27 straight wins and has been unbeaten for eight years. The winner of Klitschko-Thompson will have a mandatory due around the end of the year against IBF mandatory Alexander Povetkin (15-0, 11 KOs).

A pointless fight. The only fight that should be made at HW is Klitchko vs Peter

Why do they fight these fights that no one is interested in why they all know who we the fans wanna see? I could understand if Klitschko was coming off a grueling fight buts hes not.

Because if they fight that will be another two of the belts unified which will only leave one more fight to unify them all.

This is simple. Everyone always talk about how the ABC belts dont mean anything. So why dont Klitchko say Im not fighting anyone but the #1 guy out there. Who cares if they take his belts all of boxing knows that he is the Champ of the HW division. So he should make them make the fight with Peter. Where is the Powerful Ring magazine commitee when you need them?

No, there is no undisputed champ or ring champ at HW.

There are 3 guys laying claim to the title, Chagaev, Wlad and Peter.

Untill all these guys have met eachother it'll stay that way, that is how everyone is pushing for HW unification.

But in every other division there are fighters with belts that are not the ring champ. For instance the LW division.

Hopkins is the light heavyweight champion Ron, he beat Tarver and Tarver had beat Jones.

Lennox Lewis was the last recognised HW champion but he retired which fractured all the titles, nobody has went through and cleaned them up again yet so there is no #1 guy till that happens.

Klit is the number one ranked guy but he hasnt proved hes the best in the division yet. If Peter could beat the Chagaev/Valuev winner then it would make Wlad-Peter II huge.
