  • Easy Walk For Klitschko, Claims The Lineal Crown

    By Jake Donovan - One week after Lennox Lewis, the last true lineal heavyweight champion, was enshrined into the International Boxing Hall of Fame, a new king was crowned as Wladimir Klitschko put on a boxing clinic in forcing Ruslan Chagaev to retire on his stool after nine rounds.

    The bout took place in front of a sold-out crowd of 60,000 at Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany and aired live in the United States on ESPN Classic.

    Chants of “Klitsch-Ko” echoed through the soccer stadium immediately from the opening bell, but it was Chagaev who initiated the early action. Klitschko spent much of the first round fighting almost exclusively behind the jab, while Chagaev offered his best efforts to make it an inside fight. There was little action to speak of, save for a Klitschko straight right that snapped back Chagaev’s head toward rounds end.

    Chagaev offered side-to-side movement in trying to set up counter shots in round two, but Klitschko timed him perfectly with his jab to disrupt any pending attack. The monotony was broken up at about the 2:00 mark of the round, when a textbook one-two caught Chagaev by surprise, visiting the canvas for the first time in his career. [details]

    Cong**** to Wlad. Wonder if the WBA will still recognize Chag as a 'champion' now, even if his belt wasn't on the line. But Wlad is officially the man. Still a good accomplishment, even tho that fight was dull as ****.

      I think Wlad deserves a lot of credit for this win. A 2 week replacement and he clinically destroyed him. People need to accept the fact that its very unlikely Wlad will go steaming into an opponent. Wlads jab is damn near perfect and always seems to be accurate and very very powerful - rocking heads back nearly all the time. He does look shaky under pressure but he looks like he feeds off it and his style is destroying every so called challenger out there. Although he can be frustrating to watch when we all know he could have stepped up a gear in the 8th & 9th rounds and dropped Chagaev again - he is now Ring champion. All credit to him.

        He is NOT lineal champion. Is Wlad Undisputed? No, What Lineal champ did he beat? Did he even beat the 2nd ranked fighter? no he is ducking him with a free pass to do so. That fighter actually has a greater claim to the lineal title.

        Vitali still has the stronger lineage as champion.

        Vitali actuallty fought the last champ, Lewis, in Lewis`s last fight.

        But apart from that, he fought for Lewis`s vacant title against Sanders [who was WBO champ]. Sanders had beaten Wladimir in his last fight and Vitali then beat Sanders. Vitali holds the lineage of victory over Wladimir through Wlads unavenged loss to Sanders. Vitali won Lewis`s retired belt and in reality the WBO belt since Sanders was only stripped of it for fighting for the WBC belt!

        Vitali gained the Ring belt also which he never lost. He retired without losing his championship. When he returned from retirement he beat the holder of his belt to clear up any claim to his status.

        Wlad gained his IBF belt from Byrd! Byrds claim to that belt was beating an undeserving 42 year old Holyfield for a VACANT paper title at the time that Lewis was THE CHAMPION, that belt did not make Byrd champion. Lewis was. Wlad also gained the paper and VACANT IBO title in this fight! All Wlads belts were Vacant titles with no lineage behind them greater than Vitali`s.

        The WBO belt Wlad holds was won off Ibragimov in the worst fight in history, Ibragimov won the belt from a line that goes back to a VACANT championship fight for it which Wlad lost to Brewster after it was stripped from the holder, Sanders who ko`d Wlad for the WBO belt and then lost that lineage to Vitali.

        THERFORE WE CAN CONCLUDE THAT THE LINEAGE OF CHAMPIONSHIPS RUN STRONGER THROUGH TO VITALI KLITSCHKO.
        To summerise, Vitali holds this over Wlad,

        Lewis`s retired title, WBC.
        He never lost the Ring title.
        Lineage of victory over Wlad.
        Lineage of WBO title.


        Plus who really thinks Wlad could beat Vitali?

        Also, beating Chagaev wont add much, Chagaev hasnt fought good opponents and his last fights were against world beaters Drummond??? and Skelton. He got his title from another short lineage back to Ruiz`s vacant title win.

        While Valuev and Chageav along with Vitali hold titles then Wlads bid for the title is disputed and there is no new lineage to merit calling him THE or LINEAL champion!

          Hello. I hope, many people will agree that The only advantage Vitali has is his chin... Vitali isn`t a better boxer of two... He doesn`t have the better corner, nor technic, nor speed, nor power... Some can say he has more heart... It wasn`t he, but his younger brother, Wladimir, who was getting up 4 (FOUR!!!) times after being whooped by Sanders... One can hardly consider it a "*****"-move...

          Maybe it is unfair to call Wladimir "The Only" One, as his brother is also here, right now! But the point is that Vitali has only one-two fights left in him, and when he retires we will have only Wladimir left! Maybe it will be fair to say, that the new Lineage starts today?!

            Wlad got a14 second count against Sanders then went down from a missed punch for the 2nd kd.

              the outcome is expected. chagaev will not win against the bigger, stronger klitschko. i know chagaev's handlers were expecting miracles to thwart the inevitable win of klitsch but it simply did not come.

              i think haye would fare better than chagaev.

                Chagaev was ruled unfit medically a few weeks ago due to hepatitis, wlad took a jab so as not to get infected which tells the whole story there!

                Wlad beat a sick man. Thats what everyone will say.

                  No, because Lewis was the lineal champion and vacated there has been no lineal champion since then. Wlad winning this fight created a new lineage, so if anyone ever beats Wlad in the future he would be the lineal champion.
