Oner Attacks The Klitschkos Over Their Run of Opponents

By Ruslan Chikov

Promoter Ahmet Oner of Arena Box has attacked the Klitschko brothers for their present run of opponents. Oner recently discussed the issues with the boxing scene in Germany and examined the different tactics which cost promotional rival Universum their television deal. During the last few weeks, Oner has been a very vocal individual with boxing's problems in Germany. He says the championship brothers, Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko, are also part of the problem by making fights against opponents who seriously overmatched. 

"I have said it once and I will say it again - what the Klitschkos do is scam the people. Vitali is going to fight Derek Chisora, who lost to Tyson Fury and Robert Helenius, although the judges' decision in the Helenius fight is certainly debatable. Jean Marc Mormeck - the next opponent for Wladimir - should not appear in any world ranking because he has not boxed for over a year. And before that he had three heavyweight fights and theoretically he shouldn't have won any of them. Five years ago the Frenchman was an average fighter at cruiserweight and now he doesn't do anything. Has he done something to be a worthy contender to the heavyweight title?," Oner told Figo Sport.

Oner is an idiot, what fighter has either one of them avoided? Please tell me? They have beaten every fighter put in front of them in the last 5-8 years basically. Tyson Fury is a drunk Irish bum, and he…

Oner needs STFU before someone shoots him again. His is just sore cause the Klitschkos raped and ruined his best fighters - Gomez and Solis.
