Klitschko, Wach quotes

Below are quotes from the official announcement of IBF/WBA/WBO/IBO Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko against Mariusz Wach at o2 World Hamburg, Germany, on November 10.

Mariusz Wach: “My fellow countrymen Adamek and Sosnowski did not have what it takes to beat a Klitschko. I am not a former cruiserweight but a real heavyweight. Klitschko will take a lot of hard punches before I knock him out. I will be the first Polish world heavyweight champion!”

Wladimir Klitschko: “The big challenge for me is Wach’s height. It is the first time that I am facing an opponent who is taller than me and has a better reach. He is unbeaten, a big puncher and has an irrepressible will. To fight in Hamburg once again is very special to me: I started my professional career here and last year Vitali’s and my dream to unify all heavyweight titles in the Klitschko family became true.”

Bernd Bönte, Managing Director of Klitschko Management Group (KMG): “For KMG, it is the fourth event in Hamburg where the company is based. The spectators can expect an unforgettable fight night with a champion in his best form and a top-class entertainment program.”

Tom Loeffler, Managing Director of K2 Promotions: “This fight will be the fifth heavyweight championship fight that we have promoted in 2012. It will be a very entertaining fight between two heavyweight giants.”

Groves: Stieglitz on points

Robert Stieglitz defends his WBO World super-middleweight title for a seventh time on Saturday against home city hard case Arthur Abraham at the O2 World Arena, Berlin. WBO #3 rated British and Commonwealth super-middleweight czar George Groves, who was pitched to face Stieglitz in May but had to bale out due to nose damage, presents an analysis of the fight.

George says: “This is a really interesting fight. Abraham is the bookies favourite and he has an advantage in top grade experience plus he’ll be fighting in his home city. Even though he’s come up from middleweight (and Stieglitz was a former IBF Youth champion at light-heavyweight) I’d expect that Abraham will also have the edge in strength and power. (more…)

Yamanaka, Igarashi defend November 3

By Joe Koizumi

WBC bantam champ, unbeaten Japanese southpaw Shinsuke Yamanaka (16-0-2, 11 KOs) will risk his belt against ex-champ Tomas Rojas (39-13-1-1NC, 26 KOs) in Sendai, Japan, on November 3. Also, newly crowned WBC flyweight ruler Toshiyuki Igarashi (16-1-1, 10 KOs) will make his initial defense against unbeaten Argentine Nestor Narvaes (19-0-2-1NC) on the same bill. Sendai is a city of northern Japan that suffered very disastrous earthquake and tsunami in March of the previous year, and this doubleheader will surely encourage the great many victims there. Yamanaka acquired the vacant WBC 118-pound belt by halting Christian Esquivel in eleven furious rounds last November, and successfully kept his throne by unanimously decisioning formidable hard-puncher Vic Darchinyan this April. Igarashi lately captured the WBC 112-pound throne by eking out a hard-fought split nod over defending champ Sonny Boy Jaro this July. Both Yamanaka and Igarashi promise to show their best performance. The twinbill will be presented by Teiken Promotions and shown nationwide live by WOWOW TV.

WBC 130lb champ Ao faces Diaz

By Joe Koizumi

WBC super-feather champ, Japanese southpaw Takahiro Ao (23-2-1, 10 KOs) will put his belt on the line against veteran Mexican Gamaliel Diaz (36-9-2, 17 KOs) in Tokyo, Japan, on October 27. It was announced by Akihiko Honda’s Teiken Promotions. Ao will make his fourth defense since he dethroned Vitali Tajbelt of Germany via unanimous verdict in 2010. Diaz previously failed to win world belts from Jorge Linares in 2007 and from Humberto Soto in 2008, but he once decked an upset important victory over Robert Guerrero to win the NABF feather title to his credit in 2005. The Mexican, now holding the CABOFE 130-pound belt, has scored thirteen wins in a row. Will the third time pay for all? Ao, fresh from his last defense against official challenger Terdsak Kokietgym this April, says, “I hope to convincingly win over Diaz to pave the way to realize an anticipated unification bout with WBA champ Takashi Uchiyama in the near future.”

On the same bill, up-and-coming Japanese bantam champ Ryosuke Iwasa (12-1, 9 KOs) will take on ex-world challenger David De La Mora (24-2, 17 KOs), Mexico, over ten. WBA#10 lightwegiht Takashi Miura (23-2-2, 17 KOs) will cope with ex-OPBF ruler and compatriot Ryuji Migaki (17-3, 13 KOs) over ten.

The show will take place at Tokyo International Forum in the daytime.
