Wladimir Klitschko, Alex Leapai Quotes

WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko will defend his titles against WBO #1 and mandatory challenger Alex Leapai (Australia) at the König-Pilsener-Arena Oberhausen, Germany on April 26. Last November the 34-year-old Leapai became a boxing sensation when he beat undefeated Denis Boytsov, the great heavyweight hope and No. 1 of the WBO world rankings. Leapai won a unanimous decision dominating Boytsov over 12 rounds and knocking him down twice in the process. As a result of this victory the WBO appointed Leapai the mandatory challenger for Wladimir Klitschko.

Wladimir Klitschko: It impressed me how Alex Leapai dominated Boytsov. He has shown strong punching power and a lot of heart. But moreover, that he can take a punch and feels confident in the role of the underdog. I will be very focused and prepare myself 100 per cent as always and will look forward to this next challenge.

Alex Leapai: People talk about how great Wladimir is and the 61 victories he has had in his career. I on the other hand think of the fact that he has been comprehensively kayoed 3 times by people who cannot punch nearly as hard as me. I will break Wladimir and it will not be my hardest fight.

Bernd Bönte, Managing Director of Klitschko Management Group (KMG): We have good memories in this arena, both Wladimir and Vitali have already fought there twice and were always victorious. Each time there was a great atmosphere in this outstanding arena.
