Leapai: Everyone Will Be Shocked When I Beat Klitschko

By Edward Chaykovsky

Alex Leapai  (30-4-3, 24KOs) is very confident of being the man to finish off the reign of unified heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko (61-3, 51KOs). Leapai told ABC News that he expects this week to sign the contract for a $1 million dollar mandatory title fight with Klitschko on April 26.

Leapai earned the shot in November, when he traveled over to Germany and won a twelve round decision over previously unbeaten WBO top contender Denis Boytsov in Germany. It was one of the bigger upsets of the year.

"To be honest, I fight pretty good when I'm the underdog - I'm pretty much always the underdog," he said. "Anytime you see a bigger fighter, and then you see me who is just a little fighter - a lot of people go to the big guy and they say 'this is the guy we're going for'.

"Then they get shocked that I knock them out in one round - so I'm pretty used to it, and it's going to be the same story with this guy. I get phone calls from everywhere from my family - down in Sydney, New Zealand, Samoa - they're just real supportive and wishing me all the best in trying to make history as well."

Another embarrassing fight in the most dreadful era of the premier weight class.

kevin "i throw no punches" ko'd this guy................this has to be even worse than baldomir. even baldomir beat zab "one good win in career" judah. leapai beat boystyov who never fought a soul and now he gets a shot? wlad must have paid off the wbo to rank this bum.

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza]This fight is such a joke. Sick of hearing sh*t HWs talk like this we had Harrison with Haye, Charr was talking, I think Wach was and now this clown.[/QUOTE] Wach wasn't bad. He just said he was confident. Now, the funniest thing was when Wlad likened Mormeck to Tyson, on...

[QUOTE=yoz]He stands a chance. It must be difficult for Wlad to get up/be motivated for this fight.[/QUOTE] Even the supposedly drugged up Wlad from the first Brewster fight would deal with Leapai in 2 rounds should he want to. This time around he might wish to extend the beating for the ...
