Klitschko Looking Forward To Wach Showdown on 11/10

Wladimir Klitschko will take on undefeated Pole Mariusz Wach in the next defense of his heavyweight titles on November 10.

Klitschko, the holder of the WBA, IBO, WBO and IBF straps, will take on the American-based Wach in Hamburg, Germany.

The 36-year-old has beaten virtually every heavyweight contender out there and defeated Tony Thompson for a second time in his latest defence last month.

Wach should present an interesting threat, although he's only fought second-tier opponents in a 27-0 career - but for once Klitschko will take on the taller man at 6ft 7in.

"It is always something special to box in Hamburg," said Klitschko.

"This fight will also be special because I have never fought against a boxer who is bigger than me and has a longer reach."

[QUOTE=Mr. Fantastic;12446179]It wasn't comparable. You guys think boxing revolves around boxingscene only. Haye/Wlad hype spanned for years because our side is so desperate to dethrone the king of the HW division. He didn't fulfill it so we kicked him to…
