Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I realize I am like one of only five boxing fans left in the world. But right now, on HBO, Vladimir Klitschko is about to fight David Haye (in Hamburg, Germany) for every heavyweight belt in front of 60,000 very loud fans.

For those of you that don't follow boxing, Klitschko has maybe been the most dominate fighter in the world for a number of years:

For more than five years, Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49 KOs) has been heavyweight champion. He has rolled through opponent after opponent in his nine title defenses, winning eight by knockout, one by shutout decision, and barely lost a round along the way.

He has unified two belts and has as many defenses as the prime Mike Tyson did during his first glorious reign.

Oh and did I mentioned the fight is outdoors and it is raining cats and dogs. So if you are a fight fan please join me below the fold and lets hope for a good fight. They don't happen that often anymore.
Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

I have no idea who is going to win, but having seen at least the last 20 Klitschko fights he is a very, very bad man. Often considered to be boring, cause he'll throw jab after jab and beat the person bloody before going for the knock-out, he is also known to have something of a "glass" jaw. That always makes for an interesting fight, since one punch could end it.

Haye (25-1, 23 KOs) is a much smaller fighter, but with power and speed. He only has five heavyweight fights under his belt.

Oh did I mention they literally hate each other. At a reason press conference Haye showed up wearing a tee-shirt showing him holding the severed heads of Klitschko and his brother (who is a former world title holder).

This should be pretty interesting.

Oh and not only is it raining and the fight is outdoors, but when they just went to announce Haye, he wasn't ready. I predicate strange things are going to happen in this fight and I'll be disappointed at the result.
