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]."
