Michalczewski: I Hope Wach Shows Balls Against Klitschko

By Luke Furman

Polish heavyweight giant Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15KOs) challenges WBO/IBF/IBO/WBA champion Wladimir Klitschko (58-3, 51KOs) on November 10th at the 02 World Arena in Hamburg, Germany. German/Polish boxing legend Dariusz Michalczewski is giving Wach a shot to win, better than most of Wladimir's past opponents, but he hopes the biggest opponent of Wladimir's career is able to stayed focused and shows an aggressive nature.

"Wladimir has been sitting on the throne for a long time. I'm hoping that Wach shows balls and is not scared. He looks so laid back, but at the same time he's highly focused," said Michalczewski.

"Wach is a really strong guy, and his strongest point is that he's very awkward boxer. Mariusz is underrated. When it comes to experience in a big fight, unfortunately he doesn't have much. I don't know if he could do it mentally. I'm not sure if his head is strong enough. The point is not to be burned. It all depends on whether he is able to cope [with the big moment]. The focus should be primarily on tactics and to stay calm."

"He himself has to prove something to himself, not anyone else. If you think of someone else, then you are making a mistake. This is lack of concentration. Boxing is not a physical sport in which you have to kill or injure someone. Emotions can make you lose."

[QUOTE=PinoyNation;12585652]At least Wach has enough balls to get in the ring with the best guy in his division. Michalczewski never did.[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=PinoyNation;12585870]He needed Jones to prove he was the best. It's too bad he never had the balls to fight…
