As BoxingScene.com reported several days go, IBO/IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (59-3, 50KOs) is looking to make a voluntary defense of the title on April 6th. The WBA had ordered Wladimir to make a defense against "regular" champion Alexander Povetkin (25-0, 17KOs), but Klitschko's side have already submitted their request to make a voluntary.
Sources in Germany are stating that Olympic gold medal winner Odlanier Solis (18-1, 12KOs) is a potential vluntary opponent for Wladimir. Solis fought older brother Vitali in March 2011, but he was stopped in the first round after badly injuring his knee. Solis had to undergo several surgeries to rehab his knee before returning last May to decision Konstantin Airich.
If Povetkin and Wladimir are unable to reach an agreement, undefeated British boxer Tyson Fury (20-0, 14KOs) is ready to step in.
"I can go against Wladimir Klitschko, if Povetkin refuses. I'm ready to fight. Klitschko, I want to fight with you. Big boy, Emanuel Steward said that after you I'll would be the best heavyweight. Wlad, nobody else is more worthy," Fury said.
