Top heavyweight contender Alexander Dimitrenko (32-1, 21KOs) feels ready for a shot at Vitali Klitschko's WBC heavyweight title. The 6'7 giant, ranked at #2 by the WBC, believes a title shot is near. The boxer sat down with BoxingScene.com to discuss the status of his career, thoughts on Vitali's February defense with Dereck Chisora and more.

BoxingScene.com: When is your next fight scheduled?

I should fight in March, because after my last fight I injured my elbow and on October 31st I had to get surgery. I started training and I'm working with the arm [that was injured]. I think I should be able to fight by the end of March or early April.

BoxingScene.com: What are your thoughts on Vitali Klitschko's upcoming defense of the WBC title against Dereck Chisora in February? I understand you sparred with Chisora in the past.

I sparred with Chisora when he was going to fight Wladimir [Klitschko in 2010] and I'm not sure what happened but the fight didn't take place but they advertised him as fighting Wladimir and because of that everyone knows him. In his fight with Helenius, he won the fight but they didn't give him the decision. I sparred with him in 2010 and in my honest opinion I don't think Vitali will have any problems with him.

BoxingScene.com: You lost your EBU title because of the elbow injury?

They [Chisora and Helenius] fought for my title, the championship of Europe. They took the title away from me because I wasn't able to fight because of injury and I showed them the documents that I had surgery and they still took the title. So Chisora fought Helenius for my title. In that fight, Helenius lost the fight 100%.

BoxingScene.com: Are you still the mandatory to Helenius' EBU title?

No, they took away that status. My promoter said the fight is not interesting, so they took the status.

BoxingScene.com: Does that mean Vitali is your main target for 2012?

We'll see what happens. Vitali is going to fight Chisora in February so we'll see what happens later in the year.
