Vitali Klitschko Admits: "Wladimir is Better Than Me"

By Michal Koper

During Tuesday's presser in Warsaw, Poland to announce the fight between WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko and European champion Albert Sosnowski, the Ukrainian belt holder was asked, who was the better boxer – he or his younger brother -Wladimir Klitschko, who holds the WBO/IBO/IBF titles.

No family rivalry between the two brothers as Vitali was honest with his answer and said Wladimir was the better fighter.
 
"I have just one belt, [and] my brother has three of them. He' much younger, he's the best, he has the skills. He's a great boxer and a great champion. The only fighter who can beat me is my brother. In my personal opinion, he's better than me," Vitali Klitschko said.

He's just being honest. Head to head Vitali wins but looking at resumes, Vitali's is garbage.

Vitali is humble and he's the older brother, so of course he's going to compliment Wlad. But Vitali is just a better version of Wlad, with a stronger chin. Even though I'm more of Wlad fan.
