Default Gerorge Foreman: Wlad won't leave much of a legacy in boxing

WOW, Foreman really let Wlad have it!!!

"Well, he***8217;s a defensive fighter. It doesn***8217;t matter if his opponent is big or small, he will never take any chances. He***8217;ll probably go down as one of the most reluctant Heavyweight Champions ever. Floyd Patterson wasn***8217;t that big, but at least he took a chance and stood in front of Sonny Liston. So he***8217;s not going to go down as the bravest guy. The reason why he***8217;s reluctant is because he has a weak chin. He***8217;s always trying to protect that chin, but he***8217;s not going to leave much of a legacy."

Wladimir Klitschko is a great talent, a guy who had a lot to overcome after the losses to Sanders and Brewster and made it all the way back to the heavyweight championship, beating pretty much everyone that was left.

That said, Foreman is right in that, there is only room for one on top of the mountain and he shared it with his brother. If you're rating Wladimir Klitschko as a solo entity, you have to look at how he never avenged his losses to Sanders and Ross Purrity, and by the time he got Brewster again, Brewster was coming off a long layoff and an eye injury after losing to Lyakhovich.

Wladimir may have been a perfectionist who executed his craft with precision, but in his two greatest opportunities to make a name for himself - against David Haye and Sultan Ibragimov - he never pushed the issue and got people talking about him.

Juxtapose that with Lennox Lewis, who on his biggest stages against Mike Tyson, the Rahman rematch and even the second Holyfield fight, went out there to establish his dominance.

Maybe not as great as Foreman but he would be great in his own way.

I don't think Foreman did anything but give an honest and respectful opinion.

I think Wladimir Klitschko will be more appreciated once he has retired for a long time. Especially when the HW division gets "exciting" again. Boxing fans will catch and realize it was boring because it was being dominated by a very skillful boxer who knew how to utilize his height and used it as a strength.

People hated Larry Holmes and Lennox Lewis in their day, but looking back now we have loads of respect for those guys.

Wlad never really found a base in the American audience, and Americans will probably never care about him, but so what?

I don't think George "Let Wlad have it."

Americans want heavyweight champions to be fearless. Not cautious. That's just the way it is.
