Vitali warns David Haye

"The Klitschko brothers will end his career"

Klitschko Mgmt Group

By Karl Freitag

Although WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (39-2, 37 KOs) is focused on defending his world title against Euro champion Albert Sosnowski (45-2-1, 27 KOs) on Saturday night, he also had a chilling message for WBA titleholder David Haye on Monday.

“I want to fight David Haye very much,” said Vitali. “Wladimir wants to fight against him also. I want to fight David Haye because he has the WBA world title. Wladimir wants to fight him because it’s personal. Wladimir says he’s not interested in his title. David Haye touched him so deeply that Wladimir wants to shut his mouth in the ring.

“David Haye understands the fact that the Klitschko brothers will be the end of his career,” he continued. “The fight against me will be much shorter than against Wladimir because Wladimir will beat him badly all twelve rounds and then knock him out. I will give him a much easier proposal. I’ll knock him out in three, maximum four rounds!” (more…)

Former world title challenger Danny “The Bronx Bomber” Santiago (31-4-1, 19 KOs) defeated “The Billy Goat” William Bailey (10-7-0, 4 KOs) in a horse race of a match.

Arce cut in sparring

Zanfer Boxing

In just his first day of sparring sessions, triple world champion Jorge “Travieso” Arce (54-6-1, 41 KOs) was cut on his right eyebrow and according to the medical diagnosis it will be practically impossible for him to be ready to fight on June 26 in San Antonio, Texas against WBO bantamweight champion Eric Morel. During an exchange of blows with sparring partner Luis Jorge Lugo, Arce took a left hook and immediately started to bleed just below his right eyebrow and quickly stopped the action. Arce was preparing in the Montiel Gym in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico in preparation to challenge for a world title in a fourth weight division.

The 30-year-old Arce was checked by trainer Manuel Montiel, who temporarily stopped the bleeding. Arce went to see Dr. Ariel Baldenegro who diagnosed a cut three inches deep, which required stitches. He recommended rest for two to three weeks to fully heal the injury. (more…)

Demyaneko hammers Gomez

Welterweight Vitaliy Demyaneko (19-0, 12 KOs) notched up the eighth defense of his PABA title in Moscow Sunday when he stopped late replacement Walter Gomez (22-9-1, 11 KOs) in the second round. The fight was also a defense of Vitaliy’s WBA Asia Pacific title. Demyaneko was originally slated to face WBO #15 Sam Columban who couldn’t make the fight due to visa delays getting into Russia. This fight will now take place either in the USA or Australia later in the year said Ring Stars spokesperson Anna Fedorova. “We have him now rated WBO #5, WBA #10 and WBC #9 and intend to fight at least two more times before the year is out. Our team matchmaker Stuart Duncan is confident he can put the Columban fight back on another date and if Zab Judah ever re-surfaces I know this is who Vitaliy and his trainer want badly.” (more…)

“Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis had this belt. It’s not for nothing that I own it now!” said Klitschko at today’s press conference in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. “I want [the belt] to prove that I’m the best in the world.”

Sosnowski stated “I realize that all the experts consider me a longshot, but Klitschko will regret having given me this opportunity. He’s already passed his prime. Many of his fights have been against living punching bags who had already lost in the locker room. You only have an opportunity like this once in a lifetime and I want to use it. I’ll show Vitali and become be the first Polish heavyweight champion!”
