Masternak Says Wach Must Crack Wladimir's Jaw To Win
By Luke Furman
Polish fans are getting very excited as Saturday comes closer, when Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15 KOs) will get his chance to win the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight belts from Wladimir Klitschko (58-3, 51 KO ) in Germany. A good friend of Wach, top cruiserweight contender Mateusz Masternak (28-0, 21 KOs), says there is no doubt that Mariusz is capable to pull off the upset.
Other Polish fighters have tried to topple the Klitschko brothers, like Tomasz Adamek, but he was too small to get the job done. Wach, at nearly 6'8, is the first opponent who is bigger than either brother.
"Mariusz can not win on points, because Klitschko is better technically. But is capable of coming forward, making Klitschko use his legs, breaking through the defense and knocking him out before the end of the twelfth round. I can compare Tomasz Adamek [who lost to Vitali Klitschko by KO] and Wach based on their encounters with the Irishman Kevin McBride. Tomasz struggled with him for twelve rounds, and Mariusz knocked him out in the fourth round. Klitschko does not have a good resistance to taking [big] punches," Wach said.

everybody says that, but nobody ever gets it done somebody has to tell these guys something new make Wlad work, go to his body, get him tired stop basing everything on a 1 punch KOComment by Enzo Mc is SHIT on 11-08-2012
Wach gets beaten up and stopped. I'm sure he'll land something but there's nothing to indicate he's a monstrous puncher so he won't do damage. On another note, I'm glad this guy brought up Adamek's 12 round decision win against…Comment by eurochamp on 11-08-2012
The problem is you actually have to land a clean flush shot on Wladimir and he is quick and knows how to maintain distance. I see this fight being stopped in under 8 rounds with Wach taking a lot of…Post a Comment - View More User Comments (6)
