Tszyu Says The Klitschko Era Will Eventually Pass

By Ruslan Chikov

Everything comes to an end, says Hall of Fame former world champion Kostya Tszyu. The boxer says the heavyweight domination by Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko is no different. Tszyu, now a trainer, will prepare Alexander Povetkin for his mandatory fight with Wladimir on October 5th in Moscow, Russia.  Tszyu says the Klitschko brothers are not to blame for their one-sided victories. There is nothing anyone can do about the current landscape of the heavyweight division,  but sooner or later everything changes.

"A boxer cannot choose and pick his opponents. He has to go through the mandatory title defense procedure. As for the Klitschko brothers’ opponents, it’s just the way it is: at the moment there are not as many boxing stars around as there used to be even in my time. There is a certain vacuum, so [the Klitschkos] have to fight whoever there is," Tszyu told Gazeta. "The reality is that younger boxers come and defeat their predecessors. It’s life. Heavyweight boxing is indeed living through the Klitschko era but this will change eventually."

Wlad will break this man. Wlads an all time great champion, he's proved it many times.

Wrong. Louis had retired. Charles was already champ from picking up the vacant belt, so he was actually DEFENDING against Louis (who had been declining before his break, but was totally past it when facing Charles). Nor do I count…

In other news, day is expected to follow night.

Hopefully we'll get B-Level wars like Liakhovic-Brewster, Huck-Povetkin for the belts.
