Wladimir Klitschko sets his sights on Joe Louis’s record of 25 straight title defenses

Klitschko is not just looking past Bryant Jennings (19-0) but he has grand plans to rewrite the record books. At this stage the Ukrainian has 17 consecutive title defenses ranking third behind Larry Holmes with 19 pops and Joe Louis in a league of his own with 25 straight wins at the top. Dr. Steelhammer will tie one of Louis’s achievements – 27 title bouts- the moment he sets foot in the ring tomorrow night at the Garden to defend his 4 titles against Jennings.

“As long as I have the motivation and health, I’ll do it. I don’t feel old, or bad, or slow.” said the confident champion. At the last press conference prior to his fight with Jennings, Wladimir acted out of character and did some brash talking giving the media and fans a little more food for comments.

Wladimir Klitschko v Bryant Jennings – Final Presser

Fight week got started in New York this afternoon as long reigning World heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, 63-3 (53KO’s), faced unbeaten challenger Bryant Jennings, 19-0 (10KO’s), in their final formal media obligation in Madison Square Garden.

Both fighters conducted themselves with confidence, class and respect, something, which has typified the build up to a fight that has accepted its position as the entrée to the biggest event in boxing history.

This class cannot be extended to the continued delusion of gate crasher Shannon Briggs, who ludicrously turned up at the proceedings as incoherent and as annoying as ever.
