WBO decision on Klitschko’s mandatory challenger to come this week

By Karl Freitag

WBO #8 ranked heavyweight Alex Leapai threw a wrench into plans to match unbeaten WBO #1 Denis Boytsov and WBO world champion Wladimir Klitschko, when Leapai clearly defeated Boytsov last Saturday in Germany. The bout wasn’t an official WBO eliminator, but rather a defense of Leapai’s WBO Asia Pacific heavyweight title. However Boytsov, who hadn’t faced a top ten opponent in nearly four years, was promised the mandatory challenger status with a win. Leapai is now seeking to “leap” past a number of contenders and be declared the mandatory challenger, which the WBO Championship Committee is considering.
