Which of these two heavyweights would you prefer to see Wladimir Klitschko choose?
It looks like it will be Francesco Pianeta as Wladimir Klitschko's next opponent.
But it's not a done deal yet, and we've seen in the media that Bryant Jennings is willing and ready.
Which of these two would you prefer to see Wladimir fight?
All time great

francesco piñata? i remember this guy got a gift draw against albert sosnowski...yes that albert sosnowski! don't worry he's totally redeemed himself with wins over 50 year old botha and 50 year old mccall.

I think people will see Jennings as a more legitimate opponent, not that I think that belief has much of a basis. I didn't really have a preferrence when it comes to these 2.

Pianeta is fine for April 6. Jennings isn't ready anyway and I'd like to see him fight Wlad at a later stage.
This year Wlad could fight
Pianeta, April 6
Povetkin, summer showdown
Adamek or Pulev, winner of an eliminator fight, in the fall

This should be good year for wlad.
Eventual wins over Povetkin and Pulev would be a very good achievement for one year.
As for this fight I would go with Pianeta. He isn't some great fighter, but he is a solid, unbeaten fighter in his prime.
Moreover he is a legit heavyweight (same height as Wlad)
Good enough as Price or Tyson are not ready yet.

don't know who either of them even are
don't know why he insisted on a tuneup before Povetkin either
has Wlad said anything about his insistence on another fight first?
he just got in a full 12 rds of work against Wach
Wlad's already stuck mopping up mandatories he gets little credit for
why even waste time with one of these guys?
|choose?, heavyweights, klitschko, prefer, wladimir|
