Wladimir Klitschko takes coach extremely well but, frankly my dear, I was more impressed by the materful corner work cum psychology of Emanuel Steward than I was by the world's second best heavyweight Saturday night.

Oh, and by the way, I guess we can cancel the funeral for boxing given the fact that Klitscho's somewhat dramtic 12th round left hook KO over Not So Fast Eddie Chambers attracted 51,000 fans in a huge soccer stadium in Dusseldorf.

If that crowd figure seems familiar, it's because that is the number of fans who turned up at Cowboys Stadium a week ago to watch Manny Pacquiao hammer Ghanaian pacifist Joshua Clottey.

Think of it, 102,000 paying customers in cavernous stadiums, one in Texas and one in Old Europe.
I hate to think what's possible when boxing comes alive again.

Superstars drive sports as we all know and the Klit Bros are superstars in Europe while Pacman is a worldwide megastar now.

Chambers, too small and too cautious, should have lost by 120-108 shutout votes on all cards but he prevented that by exposing his chin to a crunching left hook. Chambers went down like a sack of potatoes, yet another American imposter expoded by Wladimir and/or Vitali.

Back to the Kronk Goldfather, Steward said this before the final round:

"It's no way he should be going 12 rounds. He's gonna run now...You do not need to have another bullspit decision!"

Of course, it's my editorial filter that misspelled the real word Steward uttered...

Suitably chastized for not letting his punches fly in sufficient number, WKlit went out and finished the job.

Chambers completely frustrated his corner with his ultra passive manner.

Before the 10th round, his cutwoman (yes, a lady) said, "You knock his *** out because you're losing...are you listening, Eddie?"

But my favorite verbal rip from Chambers corner came before round six: "This is bleeping ridiculous! You've got to fight this bleeper!"

If anyone needed a reminder that Pacman tutor Freddie Roach is not the only master trainer extant, then this was Exhibit A.

Good work by Wladimir, great work by old friend Manny.

Saturday to Saturday, come to think of it, the shining star in two massive fight shows attracting 51,000 fans, was a guy named Manny.


Formula: Manny is shining star, Saturday night, 51,000 fans
