Contrary to a report on Fightnews.com, HBO's April 23 dreck between Wladimir Klitischko and Eliseo Castillo will NOT
be an IBF eliminator for the right to challenge champion Chris Byrd. With or without a monitor, even the IBF wouldn't sink that low. Klitschko-Castillo could only be considered an eliminator, in that it eliminates one half of a brother tandem from the heavyweight landscape, thus crossing off another name off HBO's must see list. Boxingtalk has began to hear rumors that Jim Lampley and Larry Merchant may commentate the bout with bags over their heads.
