The Ring, WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion “Dr. Steelhammer” Wladimir Klitschko will outclass and brutalize mammoth Polish fighter “The Viking” Mariusz Wach to successfully defend his belts on November 10 at the O2 World Arena in Hamburg, Germany.
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, last fought on July 7 when he pummeled mandatory opponent Tony “The Tiger” Thompson en route to a dominant sixth round TKO in front of 32,000 fans at the Stade de Suisse in Berne, Switzerland.
Conversely, the 32-year-old Wach (27-0, 15 KOs), who stands 6-foot-8 and possesses an 82 inch reach, most recently vacated the squared circle as a victor over Tye Fields by a sixth round TKO at the Resorts Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
“The big challenge for me is Wach’s height. It is the first time that I am facing an opponent who is taller than me and has a better reach,” said Klitschko, 36, who is blessed with an 81 inch reach. “He is unbeaten, a big puncher and has an irrepressible will.”
In actuality, despite his size, Wach is a powerless prizefighter with zero chance to compete with the indomitable Ukrainian.
Still, somewhat surprisingly, Mike Cappiello, who earned the New England super featherweight title in 1990 and finished his professional career with an impressive record of 33-6, believes the 1996 Olympic gold medalist could be upset at any time.
“Wladimir Klitschko can be beat,” said Cappiello, who once challenged for the flyweight title and retired with an impressive mark of 33-6. “He is always fighting on the outside because he knows he doesn’t have a solid chin.”
“Dr. Steelhammer” has been trumped so, obviously, he “can be beat.”
Nevertheless, expect Wladimir Klitschko to severely batter Mariusz Wach and win his 16th straight scrap approximately three weeks from tonight.by
