Vitali Klitschko smiling about his pending victory.
Klitschko is 40 years old. It would be one thing if he showed any signs of slipping, but the old warrior doesn't. He may be slower than some fighters, but his timing is impeccable.
His power is still there, and his skills just seem to become more refined with time. Since returning from retirement in 2008, Klitschko has been undefeated. He retired initially in 2004.
If four years of layoff time couldn't slow him down enough to make him beatable, nothing except maybe another decade of boxing could do the trick.
Klitschko is the heavyweight Bernard Hopkins (52-5-2, 32 KO) in terms of longevity. Hopkins at 47 years old is still the best light heavyweight (175 pounds) in the business.
Likewise, Klitschko is simply the best the heavyweight division has seen in recent years. He'll show why again this Saturday, Feb. 18 when he faces Chisora at 4:30 p.m. EST on Epix and EpixHD.com.
