WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (36-2, 35 KOs) and mandatory challenger Juan Carlos Gomez (44-1, 35 KOs) faced off at today’s prefight presser in advance of Saturday’s world title showdown at the Hanns Martin Schleyer Halle in Stuttgart. Germany. “I’ve heard a lot of statements from Gomez’ camp recently and all I can say is that they can dream on, they are all dreams,” said Vitali. “I can promise him the hardest fight of his life. I think he is a very good boxer, with technical skill, and he showed it all at cruiserweight. But heavyweight is something else. I will show him. It will be a lesson, but it won’t last long.” It was also announced that the Klitschko camp rejected the WBC’s appointment of a referee and judge. Gomez commented, “Vitali claims everywhere that he will knock me out, so why does he even care about the judges? To me, it completely makes no difference who is in the ring. I invite ‘Dr. Sissy’ to bring it, so I can outbox him and there will be no two opinions about the decision. On Saturday the ‘Black Panther’ will again be a world champion. He added, “I will beat his face in.”
