    It's unification of all HWT titles. Wladimir Klitschko UKR vs David Haye of ENG. IN a soccer stadium in Germany, 50,000 people. Sat night. Lots of bad blood and tension and trash talk from Haye who has totally disrespected Klitschko as boring, a bum, fraud, etc. Now he's got what he wanted, after ducking the fight for two years after all his trash talk. This fight has all the elements, hate, colorful personalities, ego, tension, pride, high stakes, this will be an event on par with Ali - Frazier, Tyson - Holyfield, etc. Is anybody amped up for this, or has it slipped through the cracks in the US media? July 2 from Germany, televised by HBO.

    I've been waiting to read the biofile on each boxer before I decide who I'm rooting for.

    I like the match, simply from the perspective that I didn't think it was ever going to happen. It's like the poor man's version of Manny vs. Mayweather. However, I'm not expecting a classic fight or anything; Wlad is probably going to beat the shit out of him and control the entire fight.

    I'm excited because it's not MMA.

    Is anyone amped up for Brewers-Yankees tomorrow? This will be an event on par with Ali - Frazier, Tyson - Holyfield, etc.

    Please feel free to name an event of your own on par with Ali - Frazier, Tyson - Holyfield, etc.

    Next to the Klitschko-Haye Handwriting Without Tears event of course.

    I'm thinking this may be more like Greg Page vs. Alfredo Evangelista.

    This is the one you've been waiting for. This is the one that is going to electrify the world like Ali and Frazier, Hagler-Hearns. Check out this staredown confrontation...
