If people don't know who those two are then they are obviously clueless and don't know anything about boxing. So their opinions and likes/dislikes don't carry much weight.

No its not. Most sportsfans know the klitschkos. Very few have ever heard of Mayweather and fewer still will watch him fight in the middle of the night. Whether Floyd fights on the same day or not is of only marginal importance to the klits as their revenue isn't generated in the US.

I can guarantee you that in Europe the average sportsfan knows that the name of the HW champion of the World is Klitschko because they have seen them fight and seen them in commercials and on mainstream television. I'd say that less than 1% knows about Canelo and perhaps 5% has heard about Floyd Mayweather. An even smaller percentage has seen them fight.

I really dislike boente, but with regard to mayweather, he is (more or less) right - he is not very well known in continental Europe.

Now true boxing fans in Europe will know him for sure, but the "casuals" that watch one fight every 3-6 months on TV have probably never heard of him, let alone the general public.

I agree.

I disagree. The name Klitschko is very well known here - the brothers are always in the media, when they fight there is a report in almost every newspaper. This is not the case when Floyd fights. Go to the online archives of the major German, Austrian, Polish, Russian...whatever newspapers and check if you don't believe it.

LOL at the notion that one's profile in a certain country must match their profile in other countries.

As Boente and several European posters have stated, the Klitschkos are very well known in certain European countries, while Floyd isn't; he doesn't fight in those countries or appear in their media regularly, but the Klitschkos do. Conversely, Floyd has a much stronger media presence in the US than the Klitschkos do, and he is very well known there, while the Klitschkos aren't.

This is true even if an American once met people in a bar in Tenerife who knew of Mayweather.

Also worldwide most interest in last years was in Klitschko - Haye fight I believe not any of Floyd fights. You may be suprise but US is not the center of the world.
This is true.

Also Europeans by average tend to be very tall people and don't really care about short, light weighted boxers when their women are bigger than Floyd.

I usually stick up for America in all things concerning Joe Calzaghe.

But on this one, way to stick it to America and pwn them by not giving two sh1ts about competing against their biggest star in Mayweather. They basically completely dismissed America by saying we don't need you. We've got the monopoly on the heavyweight division, the mandatory challengers and all Top 20 contenders must come to us and our turf, we don't need to chase down any American approved opponent or their top network and we still generate top revenue.

A few weeks ago, the World Boxing Association issued an order which granted Wladimir's request to have a voluntary defense. According to the order, Wladimir was granted permission to defend his "super title" prior to facing Povetkin - but their respective camps were given a deadline of February 28 to reach an agreement for their mandatory fight. Additionally, the WBA set down a purse bid date of March 18th for Klitschko-Povetkin, and they set down a purse bid split of 75-25 in Wladimir's favor. [Click Here To Read More[/URL]]
I dont get why Povetkin has been ducking this fight for so long? He should throw the belt in the trash like Bowe did and relinquish it.
