Still out there

Although I hope to be on the scene again soon, my work out of the country continues to prove time-consuming.

Needless to say, I find the comeback of Vitali Klitschko intriguing. I suspect his extended absence from the ring combined with his age are going to show against Jameel McCline win or lose. Nonethless he has a good chance of recapturing some piece of the title and holding it simultaneously with his brother Wladimir holding one of the other straps.

Kudos to Sultan Ibragimov and Ruslan Chagaev for moving immediately to unify their titles. I still suspect Wladimir Klitschko is too steep a hill to climb for either of them, at least they are not wasting time with silly mandatories.

Sam Peter looms large in his upcoming quest for the title possessed by Oleg Maskeav. The only thing separating him from the crown is the calendar. As much as I admire the resurrection of Maskaev, the power of young Sam will prove overwhelming.

I don't think I could get excited about any future heavyweight fight, except maybe a rematch between Wlad and Peter.

Klitschko is the best heavyweight in the division by far at the moment. Its a weak division though.
