Klitschko's Coach: Boytsov Has No Chance With Vitali

By Alexander Pavlov

Last Friday evening in Cologne, Russian heavyweight Denis Boytsov (31-0, 25 KOs) won a hard-fought unanimous decision over American veteran Dominick Guinn. Veteran trainer Fritz Sdunek was at ringside, as he was working the corner of the main event superstar, Felix Sturm. Sdunek also trains the man Boytsov would love to fight, WBC champion Vitali Klitschko. At this moment, the veteran coach doesn't give Boytsov any chance to beat Vitali or younger brother Wladimir Klitschko.

Sdunek had previously worked with Boytsov from the moment the figher turned pro in September 2004 - until the trainer broke away from working with Boytsov's promoter, Universum, in the fall of 2009.

"Considering his performance against Guinn, Denis would have no chance against Vitali. Boytsov still needs two or three more fights to gain the necessary confidence. I think that he is not yet ready for fight with Vitali or Wladimir," says Sdunek.

i have yet to see him fight anyone in the top 10 or 20. wins over guinn & gavern are decent butdoes not make him ready for a klitschko. he hasn't proven anything but with title shots being handed away…
