While WBO/IBO/IBF/WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko is set to fight against WBO mandatory Alex Leapai on April 26 in in Oberhausen, Germany - he already has future goals in mind. Klitschko would like to return to the United States in a major fight - and feels the winner of the rematch between Chris Arreola and Bermane Stiverne would be the perfect opponent.

Arreola and Stiverne will battle for the vacant WBC title, which Wladimir's older brother Vitali Klitschko recently vacated to focus on his political career. Wladimir has not fought in the United States since February of 2008, when he won a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over Sultan Ibragimov at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

"I'm missing the fans in the U.S.," Klitschko said in an interview with The Associated Press. "The fan base is huge here and I would love to fight back in the States. I want to fight here but I need a broadcaster, either Showtime or HBO, and I need an arena. Of course I also need an opponent who is interesting to fans. I think the Arreola-Stiverne winner could be a good choice."

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll]The winner of Stiverne-Arreola should face Wilder first. Then the winner of that can face Klitschko for a heavyweight unification. It'll be bigger that way and Wlad's opponent will seem like a more credible challenger.[/QUOTE] yeah this is the way it should go down

The Heavyweight Champion of the world begging American broadcasters to show his fight. This is how bad the division has become and how desperate Grabimir is. :lol1: :lol1: [QUOTE=Superflo777]So....why do Arreola and Stiverne get to fight for the WBC title first? I get they are probably #1 a...

[QUOTE=LacedUp]Because then he will be undisputed champion, even if he gives it up straight after. He should go for it asap to get the feather in his hat - on paper. It will be a glorious day for the heavyweight division once we have one champion again. It's been more than 10 years![/QUOTE...
