By Alexander Pavlov

Emanuel Steward, the trainer for IBO/WBO/WBA/IBF world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (57-3, 50KOs) believes his fighter is fully capable of stopping Tony Thompson (36-2, 24KOs) in the first five rounds of their rematch this Saturday night in Berne, Switzerland. Klitschko stopped Thompson in the eleventh round of their 2008 match. Steward says the Thompson fight was one of the hardest in Wladimir's career and he was hoping they would never face him again.

"After the last fight between Wladimir and Thompson in 2008, I was hoping that we would never meet this guy again. In the course of the match, we had to adjust to the style of Tony - because of his speed, incredible stability and excellent vision of the ring, as well as understanding what punches [work] and at what point they should be applied. I note that Thompson is one of the best right hand striker that I have ever seen. In this fight - we should apply pressure on the opponent, act aggressively. If he succeeds [in following the plan], Wladimir should knock Tony out in a maximum of five rounds. Klitschko is capable of [ending the fight on] a single punch. He is very serious and well prepared for this fight. Also note that right now Thompson is the most dangerous of all of the possible opponents for Wladimir. I think that the fans are in store for an exciting fight," Steward said.

[QUOTE=Derranged]I just realized this fight is happening next week, and I heard nothing about it until I saw the poster for it on Freedom.'s avatar yesterday. Wow, heavyweight boxing is really dead.[/QUOTE] nobody cares about Klitschko or his fake belt.

Gosh. Can't wait. Another wasted day in Paradise from the same legend who gave us Andy Lee. Vlad is a one armed bandit and it's getting real old. They are certainly not making fighters like Mike Dokes anymore. Nope.

[QUOTE=Tobi.G]Ok, of course hes no Tyson or Foreman but he has heavyweight power. BTW Wlad having a glas jaw is not true.[/QUOTE] He can be vulnerable to a puncher. Thompson is not a puncher. I don't think he has Sanders or Brewster type of power, probably not even Ross Puritty power. He stops...

why not 1?

[QUOTE=TheGreatA]I've never seen Thompson display any notable punching power. He was able to land on Wladimir in their last fight, to no effect.[/QUOTE] Ok, of course hes no Tyson or Foreman but he has heavyweight power. BTW Wlad having a glas jaw is not true.
