Klitschko, Wach Reach Agreement on Terms: Fight is On!

By Luke Furman

The contractual issues have now been resolved. A deal has been reached for a fight between IBO/IBF/WBO/WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (58-3, 51 KOs) and undefeated Polish challenger Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15 KOs).

In an earlier article on, promoter Mariusz Kolodziej of Global Boxing Promotions complained about certain clauses in the fight contract. The main clause he cited was a binding stipulation that obligates Wach to provide his three future fights, in the event he wins, to Klitschko's company K2 Promotions. Kolodziej was pondering the possibility of walking away from the fight and matching Wach against Bermane Stiverne of Canada in a WBC eliminator.

That issue has now been solved. The fight is now agreed upon for November 10th in Hamburg, Germany.

Kolodziej said: "I'm pleased to inform that after weeks of negotiations we have finally reached an agreement and came to terms that will satisfy both sides. I'd like to thank the entire Klitschko team and K2 Promotions for their cooperation."

[QUOTE=4Corners;12448758]The difference is the level of talent in the HW division right now. The two best wins over either Klitschko resume are Haye and Byrd..... The HW era since the early 2000's-present day has been weak as hell.[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=vitali1999;12448615]It's a shame what has happened to all the blacks in the HW divison. Getting tossed around like rag dolls and humiliated by the Klitachko brothers. You don't hear black comedians talking about how the blacks are the best in…
