Anyone else slightly interested in this?

Saying I'm looking forward to it might be going too far as Wach is, for want of a better term, shite.

He's got the height on Klitschko though and that's something you don't often see. He doesn't seem like he has the ability to use that height but I'm still hoping it brings a little something different out of Wlad. Guys like Wlad who've been on top of their game for so long it's always nice to see them bring something else in if you get me?

Monday's press conference:


Boente: Klitschko Will Not Make Same Mistake as Huck

The manager of IBO/WBO/WBA/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko's Manager, Bernd Boente, promised that Wladimir will not make the same mistake as WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck. Boente believes Huck underestimated 42-year-old former champion Firat Arslan, and because of that he was nearly beaten on Saturday night in Germany. This coming Saturday night, in Hamburg, Wladimir will face his first super heavyweight challenger, unbeaten Polish contender Mariusz Wach.

"In the fight against Mariusz Wach, Wladimir will not make the mistake that WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck made in his fight against comebacking compatriot Arslan. We remind you that in fact Huck completely lost that fight, but the judges gave him the victory on points," Boente said.

"Wladimir will be facing, for the first time in his career, a taller opponent. And that enhances the intrigue. We know that Mariusz cannot be underestimated. We will not make a mistake like the one from this past weekend, that Huck made against Arslan. The Poles believe that our previous [Polish] opponents - Tomasz Adamek and Albert Sosnowski - were not natural heavyweights - unlike Wach - who has the opportunity to write his name in history books by becoming the first world heavyweight champion [from Poland]."

For those that haven't seen Mariusz Wach before, this is him in his last fight out against Tye Fields.

I love that polish Wojak beer advert.

Wlad's face in that stare down is scary though. Can't remember when I've ever seen him that focussed before. Obviously this fight's gonna be really emotional for him and it'll be interesting to see how he handles it.
:think I'm actually starting to think this guy can actually beat Wlad. And he's 14/1 to win by stoppage..
