Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

According to a poll at TMZ, Wladimir Klitschko is far more sexually attractive than his brother older brother Vitali.

The scientific results, after over 15,000 votes, have Wladimir with a massive 93% to 7% advantage. I will admit that in order to find out the results, I voted for Wladimir. He's just a bit more handsome, in my opinion.

But I also think TMZ chose a lousy picture. Vitali looks surprised and round-faced in the photo, and it's no secret that both look better with a bit of a beard, which Wladimir is sporting in their example, but Vitali is not.

Now you may have some questions about why we're posting this, and I can answer those: We're posting it because it's funny to me, because I don't think boxing is 24-hour SERIOUS BUSINESS, and because it amuses me that Vitali is so far behind. The poor old guy. Oh well, I think we're still at a point where most "diehard boxing fans" think that he's a better fighter than Wladimir, so he'll always have that. I wonder if they argue about that stuff at holidays? I wonder if they argue about this at holidays?

To get a more useful perspective on which Klitschko brother is, in fact, hotter, I asked Beth and Donna at Gals Guide to MMA to weigh in. They were kind enough to oblige:

Why Wladimir Is The Superior Klitschko Brother by Gals Guide to MMA

You know how in families there is always one sibling that is hotter than the rest? Well, in this case it's quite obviously Wladimir. It's not that Vitali is hideous. It's just that Wladimir is so, so delightful. Wlady (you don't mind, do you?) has the boyish good looks of a late afternoon sports anchor on ESPN. With that nose, Vitali isn't going any higher than local cable ... or radio. However, on a serious note, this picture nearly made us vote for neither brother. Public Service Announcement: It is never, ever a good idea to pose naked with your brother, who is also naked and standing right behind you. For some reason guys don't think that the same rule applies to Donna and I. You boys are so silly.

I guess that settles it: Wladimir Klitschko is hotter than Vitali.
