WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko and #1 ranked Cristobal Arreola met the media and faced-off on Thursday for the first time in Los Angeles at a packed Staples Center press conference to promote their Sept. 26 showdown.

Vitali Klitschko: “This is heavyweight boxing. It’s two punchers. No one knows what will happen, that’s why I prepare to finish the fight inside 12 rounds. But, I am ready to fight all 12 rounds. I am ready for anything that can happen. I’m an old man. I have pain. But, don’t worry. I’m feeling much better. I had a good performance against (Samuel) Peter. I stopped (Juan Carlos) Gomez. I will do the same against Arreola.

Cristobal Arreola: “I’ve never been into trash-talking. I respect the man and so we’ll save all our trash-talking for the ring. Any man is beatable. If you’ve got two hands you can beat any man. He has a chin and I have a chin. It only takes one punch. I’ve said it before: We’re in the hurt game and one of us is going to get hurt. I just hope it’s not me.”
