Poll: Who should Wladimir Klitschko fight next?

Wladimir Klitschko won again last night, but what should he do next? YOU make the call.

We all know that in boxing, it's never quite as easy as what the fans want to see. Despite the tired cliché that "boxing is a business," the best business (usually from the best possible fights) does not always trump the safest business decision.

So now that we've gotten that stated plainly, forget about it. Forget about what will happen, what is unlikely, what is even perhaps impossible. What do you, the boxing fan, WANT to see Wladimir Klitschko do next?

We're giving you seven options here. Vote with your heart. Your big, gooey, stupid heart.

  • Deontay Wilder (33-0, 32 KO): Undefeated. Tall. American. WBC titleholder. Powerful puncher.
  • Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KO): Undefeated. Extremely tall. Colorful and controversial. Has talked up the fight a lot.
  • Bryant Jennings (19-1, 10 KO): Is a rematch the best fight to come next? Wladimir doesn't think so. Do you?
  • Vyacheslav Glazkov (20-0-1, 12 KO): Undefeated, though debatably so. Fellow Ukrainian. A contender, officially.
  • Shannon Briggs (58-6-1, 51 KO): Does still have a punch. Loud and brash. Perhaps for sadists only.
  • Antonio Tarver (31-6, 22 KO): Well, he wants the fight. It'd be a chance for Tarver to make history. There's that.
  • Other: I don't know, maybe you have some wild idea about Erkan Teper or Robert Helenius.
