In my personal opinion, it is pretty much too late for Vitali to be great. Unless he beats his little brother, or somehow dominates into his 40s, I refuse to rate him in the top 20 Heavyweights.

What about you?

I'm sure Vitali Klitschko is pacing back and forth on the balcony of his luxurious,Los Angeles home,Wondering what on earth he can do to make it on your prestigious list.

family,money,respect within his homeland,How can that even begin to compare with such a list?

Don't be a bellend, it's a good question.

I think Vitali's style might allow for him to last for a few more years, but I cannot see any really big fights in the future except for his brother - which I doubt will happen.

He'll probably end up beating Haye sometime next year, then a few other top contenders. But because the division is so shallow and he'd have to rely on a top CW stepping up to get some brownie points, I cannot really seem him becoming a ' great '.

He's been too inactive and his biggest fighters on his resume both beat him.

Yeah I don't think he can do anything that'll make me recognize him as an All Time Great.

Its hard to say. He has some very impressive statistics. I think time, as is the case with all fighters, will put his accomplishments in a better light than they are now though.

I suggest you turn off the computer every once in a while and go outside and play,Most preferably in the traffic.

Why did you start off ' Most ' with a capital letter?

I suggest you turn off the computer every once in a while and go to school.

Why do you have almost nine and a half thousand posts in a matter of just six months?

Do you not have a job? A life?

I suspect you also post on several forums other than boxingscene.

I dread to think how many posts you have built up there.

This is the only forum I post on.

I average 40 odd posts a day?

That's easily double in an hour, all that needs to happen is for someone to create a thread that has an interesting topic and bingo.

We all know he'd **** up Wladimir anyday of the week, that's enough for me to rank him higher, even though Wladimir has faced the better competition.

Only 40 odd posts a day? Not seem excessive to you?

two posts every hour would also suggest that you sit at a computer all day.

Good thing legacies and rankings are not based upon baseless assumptions then.

Was meant to say doable, typing in a rush because I was at work.

It's more than 40, it's actually 50 posts per day
