Pianeta: I Will Shock The World, Knock Klitschko Out!
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

As previously reported, Wladimir Klitschko will next defend his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight crowns against unbeaten cancer survivor Francesco Pianeta. Klitschko (59-3, 50KO wins) is seeking to make his 14th successful world title defence against the German-based Italian southpaw in Mannheim on May 4.

The Ukrainian and elder brother Vitali hold all the major heavyweight honours and have ruled the division for the best part of the decade.

Few, if any, will give Pianeta much hope of handing the the 36-year-old his fourth professional defeat and his first since 2004, although Klitschko is taking the challenge against his former sparring partner seriously.

Pianeta (28-0-1, 15KO wins) defeated ex-world champion Oliver McCall and former challenger Frans Botha - both of whom were well into their 40s - last year and has won eight fights in a row since recovering from cancer in 2010.

"As a sparring partner I was in Wladimir's camp last year. I saw his weaknesses and will use them," said the 28-year-old. "I know many experts see me as the underdog but I like this role and will shock the boxing world when I knock out Klitschko."

[QUOTE=hweightblogger]Not exactly offtopic because both Fact ignoring of AliFants and the language issue are related to Wlad's fights, since Boente said "The fight is not even shown in Germany and most of the European states. Maybe in England, I don't know. But I know for sure it's not sho...

[QUOTE=Own3d]Who said anything about native language? I said English is the most spoken and it is. [/QUOTE] And the funny part is that you think you have proven it by quoting something about the most used working language in the EU, which is something completely different.

[QUOTE=hweightblogger]This is probably the 5th time you claim that I have "exposed myself". You always invent some reasons why, be it because of stats or because whatever. Now I have supposedly "exposed myself" because I claim what every boxing trainer knows: Southpaws are awkward and more danger...
