Joshua vs. Klitschko – PREVIEW

By Tom Donelson / Author, Member of Boxing Writers Association of America. Our mutual friend Rusty Rubin (R.I.P.) was instrumental in connecting Tom to contribute his expertise to dmboxing.com in 2008 – Tom is truly respected and appreciated by all.

Wladimir Klitschko is nearing the end of his career and he will be facing Anthony Joshua, who may be the heir to the Klitschko brothers’ former control of the title. From 2004 until Tyson Fury upset in 2016 of Wladimir, the Klitschko’s brothers have owned a portion of the heavyweight title  Wladimir won the WBO title in 2000 but lost his title with a upset knockout by Corrie Sanders in  and after regaining the title, he lost it in yet another knockout lost to Lamon Brewster. 

Wladimir reputation was a big fighter with a glass jaw but when he teamed up with Emanuel Steward who directed Lennox Lewis’ career to the top.  From that point Wladimir along with his brother dominated the heavyweight as they beat one opponent after another.  Wladimir has participated in 28 title bouts and winning 25 of them, a heavyweight record but for many pundits, Wladimir has never been granted his place as a elite heavyweight as he fought in what many view as a weak era of heavyweights but like Larry Holmes before him; Wladimir and his brother Vitali may get their due years later.  Holmes was never consider one of the elites until years later when he proved competitive in his 40’s.

Thurman vs. Garcia – Preview

By Tom Donelson (BWAA)
Author, Member Boxing Writers Association of America

This is an intriguing fight for there are factors that need to consider.  As a friend of mine observed, Al Hayman has matched Thurman well and his first big test was Shawn Porter and other hand, the last big fight Garcia was Lucas Matthysee and Robert Guerrero gave him trouble. 

Thurman may be the stronger fighter but Garcia in big fights have found a way to survive. Against Amir Khan, he had trouble with Khan’s speed before he was able to time Khan and win the fight by stoppage.  Garcia has a nice left hook and if he is able to time Thurman, he can land the hook but Thurman has good left hook of his own so Garcia has to be aware of that.
