With Mike Tyson inducted into an International Boxing Hall Of Fame last week, Glendalefight fans along with the rest of the world have been dreaming about a meaningful heavyweight fight. It has been a long time since a heavyweight championship fight created such a buzz in a boxing community and around the globe. With four titles on the line, IBF, IBO, WBO and WBA Super World heavy weight titles, universally recognized as the best heavyweight on the planet, Wladimir Klitschko (55-3,49KO) will take on brash talking, fast and powerful Englishman, David Haye who many consider a real threat to the Klitschko dominance. With over fifty thousand fans expected to attend twelve round championship fight is scheduled to take place at the soccer stadium, Imtech-Arena in HamburgGermanyon July 2nd, 2011.
Once the most coveted division in boxing has been dominated by Klitschko brothers in no uncertain terms. Two modern day giants, Wladimir and Vitali has been ruling heavyweights with iron fists, systematically destroying their opponents, one after another. Unfortunately, their complete and total domination leaves very little to the imagination of fans. Boxing is a theater of the unexpected and with practically no drama during Klitschko fights, fans lose interest. Most American fight fans do not even know who Wladimir is and who Vitali is. They say one of the Klitschko brothers is fighting inGermany. Major American networks such as HBO or Showtime lost interest as well. The last time any of them televised Klitschko fight was almost two years ago when the older brother, Vitali methodically destroyed Chris Arreola.
Could David Haye bring back excitement to a heavyweight division? The book makers are excited; they only have Klitschko as a slight favorite in the fight. Usual odds on a Klitschko bout are ten to one. Fans are excited, because there is a possibility that speed and power of David Hay could create an upset and drama. Even HBO got excited as they decided to televise the bout for fans inUnited States. To promote the event to American fight fans, HBO color commentator, Max Kellerman went toGermanyto facilitate a face off between Klitschko and Hay that was aired on HBO yesterday.
