Wladimir Klitschko (59-3, 51 KOs) and Francesco Pianeta (28-0, 15 KOs) participated today in the fight week press conference at the SAP arena in Mannheim to talk about their fight on May 4. IBF, WBA, WBO, IBO and “The Ring Magazine” Heavyweight Champion Klitschko and his undefeated Italian contender Pianeta will face off next Saturday at the SAP arena Mannheim, Germany.

Wladimir Klitschko: “I know that Francesco Pianeta will have a fight plan but there is the famous quote by Mike Tyson that says: ‘Everyone has a plan until he gets hit’. Pianeta will be super motivated and wants to use his big chance but I am very experienced and will show him his limits.”

Francesco Pianeta: “I had a very good preparation and am highly motivated. It will be my son’s birthday four days after the fight and I would like to give him the belts on this day.”

For the second time, the press conference was also broadcasted on the official Klitschko Brothers’ Google+ page ( ). Fans and journalists worldwide were thus able to follow Klitschko and Pianeta five days before their fight.

[QUOTE=JAB5239]Difference is this is 3 out of his last 4 opponents to be like this and even many Klit fans were saying Thompson was BS because he already beat him.

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan]The Italian is the same type of fighter that many champs with long title reigns have fought.[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=Weltschmerz]Exactly. There's no reason to get hysterical about this, all of the great past HW champs fought their share of 'cans'. And Pianeta is a decent opponent f...

I don't know why Wladimir's talking-up Pianeta - he's useless. I will be disappointed if Wlad doesn't blast him out inside 5.
