Klitschko (57-3, 50 KO) pretty easily defeated Thompson (36-2, 24 KO) back in 2008, but we're at this point again because there just aren't many real challengers out there for the dominant Ukrainian brothers, who have been a two-headed monster ruling the division since that very year, when Vitali returned to assist little bro in destroying everyone.
Thompson, 40, says he cherishes the underdog role, but so does everyone who fights Wladimir. We will have live round-by-round coverage this afternoon of Klitschko vs Thompson II, so here's hoping for a surprisingly good fight instead of the one-way exhibitions we normally get from the brothers and their overmatched foes.
