“It will be almost impossible to win against a world champion like Wladimir Klitschko, on the scorecards. So, most likely, I have to knock him out. I don’t want to say when, 8th or 9th round. I just don’t know if I want to do it, because I’m not sure if the last guy I knocked out is still in the hospital or not,” – quipped Polish heavyweight contender Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15 KOs) during a second press conference taking place in Warsaw, announcing his fight against IBF, WBA, IBO and WBO titleholder Wladimir Klitschko (58-3, 51 KOs) on November 10 in Hamburg.
“Dr Steelhammer” was mildly amused. “So, do you want to knock me out or not? You have to decide it. Knockout is the best way to win the boxing fight, this is what fans are expecting from us” – said Wladimir. “I heard a lot about my so-called glass chin, and Wach is just one of my previous opponents who are predicting my KO. It’s all fun and games now, but when we will be in the ring all the fun will be gone. Wach would have to fight Lamon Brewster or Corrie Sanders to know how tough is to fight them and for me, all of this knockout talk just helps my motivation.”
