Wladimir Klitschko turns down invitation

LOS ANGELES (July 11, 2007) – In an effort to give the world an opportunity to see the best Heavyweight Champions fighting each other on a road to a potential Unification of all four heavyweight belts, Nafta Moskva, the sponsor of Sultan Ibragimov, and the promotional team of Golden Boy Promotions, Warriors Boxing, Golden Grain Promotions and Sampson Lewkowicz in association with Universum Box-Promotion, have secured the necessary financial backing to invite IBF World Champion Wladimir Klitschko to participate in a title defense of his World Title on the big October 13th card “HEAVY COLLISION” from Russia..

“HEAVY COLLISION” features the historic match-up between WBO World Champion Sultan Ibragimov and WBA World Champion Ruslan Chagaev as they battle to unify their heavyweight titles.

Unfortunately, Wladimir Klitschko had to decline the invitation due to an injury to his hand suffered in his tremendous performance against Lamon Brewster this past weekend. Assuming that Ibragimov will be victorious in his attempt to unify the WBA and WBO World Titles on October 13th, he would be prepared to unify the titles further with Wladimir Klitschko sometime next year. Sultan Ibragimov, Nafta Moskva and his promotional team are committed to give the boxing fans what the want: An Undisputed Heavyweight World Champion.
