Wladimir Klitschko

Frank Warren Looking Past Jennings To Put Klitschko V Fury Together

Veteran British promoter Frank Warren has spoken to TalkSPORT in the UK today to once again signal his intent with regards to enforcing Tyson Fury’s mandatory challenge to Wladimir Klitshcko, once the giant Ukranian fights relative American novice Bryant Jennings in New York on the 25th April.

It is also a sign of Warren’s level of belief in the chance of Jennings dethroning the long time champion, a belief that is slim on the ground with regards to every day boxing fans.

Let’s for arguments sake assume that the consensus opinion is correct here, which I believe it is. Continue reading

Klitschko vs Jennings: Bryant – A Lamb To The Slaughter

Out of curiosity I’m beginning to wonder if there are any boxing fans alive who believe unbeaten American Bryant Jennings (19-0, 10ko) has any more than a snowball’s chance in Hell when he squares off against dominant long time heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (63-3, 53ko) on April 25th at New York’s Madison Square Garden?

The fight will be screened live on HBO in America and Boxnation in the UK, and whilst for all intents and purposes it’s a mismatch, the fact the giant Ukranian is boxing on American soil for the first time in seven long years has stirred up a wealth of intrigue in a fighter who is oft referred to by fans as “boring.” Continue reading

Chudinov Brothers: “We call them Klitschko sisters”

Fedor (12-0-0) and Dmitry (14-1-2) Chudinov, hailing from Russia, are slowly but surely gaining popularity in the boxing community. The younger brother Fedor, who is currently undefeated, is slated to cross the ropes and engage in the biggest and most important fight of his career thus far.

On May 9, in Frankfurt, Germany, Fedor will face none other than veteran Felix Sturm (39-4-3). While Chudinov has already fought outside of Russia, gaining more opportunities in the United States might mean bigger fights and more money. And as always, being two brothers in boxing will likely get you a comparison to the Klitschko brothers. Continue reading

The Heavyweight Champion is back – Klitschko vs Jennings

Wladimir Klitschko, 63-3 (53KO’s) will end his 86-month exile from boxing biggest stage when he returns to Madison Square Garden for his 25th April showdown with unbeaten American hopeful Bryant Jennings, 19-0 (10KO’s).

For a century it would have been unimaginable to even suggest that the recognised figurehead of boxing, it’s leading man would not contest the sports premier title on U.S. soil for over 7 years.

And yet, it happened and passed much like Dr. Steelhammer’s last visit to the Mecca of boxing – when defeating Sultan Ibragimov over 12 rounds to become unified heavyweight champion – with little resistance. Continue reading

Tyson Fury – ‘Wladimir Klitschko is an easy fight’

In an interview with BoxNation TV Fury discussed his upcoming bout with Christian Hammer and then inevitably went on talk about his proposed bout with lineal champ Wladimir Klitschko.

The interviewer asked Fury if there was any pressure knowing that he was within touching distance of a world title opportunity. Denis Boytsov was an undefeated fighter who earned a mandatory shot but then lost it to Alex Leapai before getting his opportunity. Continue reading

Klitschko vs Jennings: Bryant looking for a KO over Wladimir

Bryant Jennings landed himself the biggest fight of his career vs unified champion Wladimir Klitschko when he beat Mike Perez last year. Jennings is certainly a big underdog going into this fight as he is the shorter, lighter and far less experienced fighter, however he is undefeated and is sporting some good wins to his credit.

Bryant Jennings could certainly steal the limelight from his fellow American boxer Deontay Wilder with a win in this fight. Wilder bagged himself a ton of fans when he beat Bermane Stiverne for the WBC heavyweight strap in their bout, but a win over the long time lineal champ would be far more impressive. This would be the eighteenth consecutive defence should Klitschko be able to pull it off and a loss would certainly be one of the biggest upsets for years. Continue reading
