In Rusty’s Corner

Rusty Rubin is a veteran boxing writer

This Saturday, September 10, in Poland, Vitali Klitschko, the senior of the two world heavyweight champion brothers, puts his title on the line in a match televised on HBO 다운로드.

His opponent, Tomasz Adamek, 34, and a native of Poland, comes in with a 44-1 record with 28 knockouts.

Vitali, 6 years older, enters the match with a 42-2 record with 39 of them coming via the KO route 다운로드.

Heavyweight matches are usually prone to upsets because we know at that weight, every punch has some power.

That gives Adamek a pinchers chance 리모콘 어플. But that, his youth and the home court advantage are about all he has the edge in.

Klitschko, always in shape, at 6’ 7” has a five and a height advantage and a five inch edge in the reach department 영어책 다운로드.

Unless Vitali grows old in hurry, or the judges lean towards the local favorite, Klitschko should win via a unanimous decision.

We also ask prayers for up and coming South African fighter, Bongani Diamini, who was killed in a car accident at age 24.

Rusty Rubin, formerly the award winning managing editor of as well as the now defunct Ringsports Magazine, is the author of three highly acclaimed boxing books! “Woozel, Boxing and Me”, “Off the Canvas” and “Billy Soose, the Champion Time Forgot” co-authored by Tom Donelson. These books are all available at, and all major book retailers. They are all more than worth the purchase price, or contact me via this website for a personally autographed copy at a small extra charge.

Expect a major announcement soon about these three notable books.

Please allow me to recommend, two other great books, the “Arc of Boxing” by Mike Silver and “My Life among the Icons” by Johnny Ortiz.

In these hard economic times, any or all of these books will make an excellent and inexpensive presents to the boxing fan(s) in your life. They are especially appreciated gifts if the recipient is tired of watching re-runs of sit-coms and the far-less than significant reality shows.

Being somewhat laid-up a bit of late, I should know

Where’s the “Gillette Cavalcade of Sports” when you need it? Make your friend or loved one ‘look sharp’, ‘feel sharp’ and be ‘sharp.’ So how are you fixed for books? You’d better check’ to parrot an old commercial.

You and the book-gift recipient will be glad you made the right choice (or the write choice)!***

Keep punching, always….Rusty
