For the IBF, IBO and WBO Heavyweight Titles
(49-3, 44 KO, Kiev, Ukraine)
(22-0-1, 17 KO, Rostov, Russia)
I'm not sure how long it'll last, but I expect this to be a fairly entertaining heavyweight fight.
If it turns into a slugfest, Klitschko will blow him out. He just hits too hard and is too precise these days. But if Ibragimov and Jeff Mayweather can make this a boxing match, Sultan has a chance to outpoint Wlad.
You also have to consider the similarities between Ibragimov and Corrie Sanders, but not give it a TON of weight. The HBO.com preview has it right: They're both lefties, good on their feet, not huge power. But Sanders annihilated Klitschko that night.
The reason I don't give it a ton of weight, though, is simply that Wladimir Klitschko is a much better fighter than he was in 2003. He's much, much smarter.
My pick: Klitschko TKO-7, but I think Sultan has a legit shot to push this fight deep and maybe take it the distance. He just can't get blasted, which is easier said than done.
