The Ring, WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion “Dr. Steelhammer” Wladimir Klitschko will defend his titles against mammoth Polish scrapper “The Viking” Mariusz Wach on November 10 at the O2 World Arena in Hamburg, Germany.
“It is always something special to box in Hamburg,” said Klitschko, 36, who outclassed and pummeled mandatory challenger Tony “The Tiger” Thompson en route to a dominant sixth round TKO in his most recent bout on July 7 in front of 32,000 fans at the Stade de Suisse in Berne, Switzerland. “This fight will also be special because I have never fought against a boxer who is bigger than me and has a longer reach.”
The 32-year-old Wach (27-0, 15 KOs) stands 6-foot-8 and possesses an 82 inch reach.
Conversely, the 6-foot-6, 243 pound Klitschko (58-3, 51 KOs), who has triumphed in 15 consecutive bouts since being TKO’d by Lamon Brewster in April 2004, has an 81 inch reach.
Unfortunately for Wach, he is a powerless prizefighter with zero chance to test the indomitable Ukrainian.
Expect Wladimir Klitschko to easily knockout Mariusz Wach, successfully defend his belts for the 14th straight time, and continue to threaten Joe Louis’ longstanding record of safeguarding his crowns against 25 straight challenges.by
