Klitschko-Chagaev Update!

By Alexey Potapov has received information on a possible fight between WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and WBA heavyweight champion (in recess) Ruslan Chagaev on June 20th at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. Universum Box Promotion is in negotiations with Team Klitschko, but for sure will wait for the WBA’s decision concerning the recent fight cancellation in Helsinki. “We’re looking at the situation,” sand Universum promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl. “For sure this is a very interesting idea.” Ruslan Chagaev, who is still in training, stated “I’m ready to fight. I had the best preparation of my life. I’m confident to fight everybody. My promotor is working for me. I trust him.” Earlier Team Klitschko explored a fight against WBA heavyweight champion Nikolay Valuev, but apparently handlers of the Russian boxer chose a different direction.
