Wladimir Klitschko: Ranking the 5 Heavyweight Bouts We'd Like to See Him in

Wladimir Klitschko is the heavyweight champion of the world.

He currently holds four titles, including the WBA super heavyweight title, the WBO heavyweight, the IBF heavyweight and the International Boxing Organization heavyweight title. His brother Vitali Klitschko holds the WBC heavyweight championship.

Wladimir Klitschko (59-3) has met every challenge that has come his way. He has reeled off 17 straight victories and he hasn't tasted defeat since he dropped a decision to Lamon Brewster in 2004.

Klitschko rarely gets his name thrown into the conversation when the topic is all-time great heavyweight champions.

Nobody is saying he ranks with Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali, Rocky Marciano or Jack Dempsey. Perhaps he's in the group just below that.

Klitschko pounded out a one-sided decision over Mariusz Wach earlier this month.

While Klitscko would be a clear favorite over anyone he would face in the foreseeable future, here are the five bouts we would like to see him in next.

(Remember that he would never fight his brother. Both men have held that position since the start of their professional careers.)
