Wladimir Klitschko: “I use only 20-30% of my abilities”

On Saturday, April 25, Madison Square Garden in New York will host a significant event that hasn’t been a part of the venue’s calendar for a few years now: a heavyweight world boxing championship fight.

Wladimir Klitschko (63-3-0) will defend his titles against undefeated Bryant Jennings (19-0-0).

For some boxing fans, an undefeated fighter has a higher stock value so to say. After all, when a fighter has never lost, they are a winner. That is until the competition gets harder, and their 0 becomes threatened.

For Jennings, this is clearly the biggest fight of his career. Defeating one of the most dominant heavyweight champions in boxing history will undoubtedly take serious finesse and great boxing skill.

Wladimir’s jab is his main weapon, one that nobody can get past successfully. Some say that getting hit with his jab feels like being hit with a stiff cross. But the news get worse for Jennings: Klitschko says that when challenged, he can always up his game by 50% or more:

“When I have a good quality preparation, and have no injuries, the no opponent has a change to beat me. Lucky punch against me is only possible if I sleep in the ring. To be honest, often I use only 20-30% of my abilities,” stated Klitschko.

Let’s hope Jennings can come out and force and exciting fight against Klitschko, making fight his 100%.
