W. Klitschko Back in The Fall: Boente on The Possible Foes

By Ruslan Chikov

WBO/IBF/WBA/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (58-3, 51KOs) will return in the fall, on a date in November or December, according to the champion's manager Bernd Boente.

"We'll have a date in November or December. The battle in going to take place in Europe. We have offers from New York to fight in the U.S. against Chris Arreola and Seth Mitchell in November, but that is not included in our plans," Boente said.

The reason for taking a pass on the offer to fight in New York City is Wladimir's exclusive television deal with German network RTL. Because of the time differences, there are conflicts with RTL and moving forward with such a plan would result in less money for Wladimir and less money for the entire promotion as a whole.

Potential candidates for Wladimir? Boente says there are several options.

"It depends on the venue of the match. Polish television, for example, has taken a great interest in a fight with Mariusz Wach....this is an interesting possibility. In principle the European champion, Kubrat Pulev, is included in the range of possible contenders. There are a few options and we have to see which of them is feasible," Boente said.

Some of the fighters Boente ruled out include Denis Boytsov, due to his hand issues, Alexander Dimitrenko, due to his recent TKO loss, and Alexander Povetkin - due to a fear that Povetkin would withdraw before the fight took place, which happened twice in the past.

[QUOTE=george benton;12378253]So they ruled out all of the good options?[/QUOTE] It was clearly stated that they have contractual obligations to RTL, what is he supposed to do? Go to court break a contract, pay fines, so he can fight Seth…

And Wladimir vs Mormeck II? Je, je. Pulev looks the best option. Then Wach. What else? Ustinov? Pianeta? Cunningham? Too soon for USS.
