Ranking The Best Fighters In The World
World Heavyweight Champion 55 3 (49)
Last Year s Ranking: 20
Status Report: This is for everyone who thinks THE RING discriminates against heavyweights, foreign born and otherwise. For the first time in about forever, a heavyweight is so demonstrably better than the stiffs he s facing that we have no choice but to assume his genius and rank him among the very best in the game. Certainly, 2010 victims Eddie Chambers (KO 12) and Sam Peter (KO 10) would agree.
Future: Though he s now 34, Klitschko shows no signs of slipping and appears as motivated as ever, even if an abdominal injury forced him to pull out of a fight with one Dereck Chisora. There is talk that he and David Haye are close to signing. We ll believe that when we see it.
