Vitali Klitschko Promises To Stop Juan Carlos Gomez

By Mark Vester

At a recent media event in Stuttgart, Germany, WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko told mandatory challenger Juan Carlos Gomez that he plans to knock him out cold. They clash on March 21 at the Hans-Martin-Schleyer hall in Stuttgart. ESPN has picked up the rights to televise the fight in the United States.

Klitschko told Gomez that it might be hard - but he will hit the deck.

"You are difficult to send to the floor but I'll manage it," Klitschko said. Gomez replied to some media laughter by telling the champion "you talk too much."

The two fighters have a history, sparring together when they were under the same German-based promotional banner. Gomez won a final elimination bout against Vladimir Virchis last September to get the Klitschko shot.

Gomez is skilled he is a bit up and down though against Virchis he looked good and he looked very good against Sinan Samil Sam, but he looked very average in his first fight against McCall I don’t know if…

Gomez is far from a slouch.....Vitali knows him well though and the same could be said for Gomez.....he knows Vitali well also so it will be a good fight.........to add to this drama, Gomez is the father of Vitali's trainer…
