Wladimir Klitschko A Fan of Borat

By Mark Vester

IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, who was born in Kazakhstan, and grew up in Ukraine, gave his comments on the movie "Borat," a comedy based on a journalist from Kazakhstan that travels to America to learn about the culture.

The movie Borat is getting a lot of negative feedback from the people of Kazakhstan, because many of them feel that the movie, and actor Sacha Cohen who plays Borat, portrays them in bad light by making them out to be perverts, being unintelligent, and stating that they hate Jewish people.

Despite all of the bad press, Wladimir Klitschko loves the actor and is a very big fan of the movie. He thinks Borat will do for his country what Crocodile Dundee did for Australia. 

"I love 'Borat'. I think that is the funniest dude I have ever seen," Klitschko said. "He's just something different than we have seen before. I think it might be great for Kazakhstan because people will go to the country and see it. You remember that crocodile hunter from Australia? Everybody thought that when he comes to New York in the movie all Australians are as crazy as Crocodile Dundee. Many people went to Australia to see that country and it was good for the economy."

I highly doubt it was a joke. The actual article discussed Wladimir's charity efforts in some depth and seems like a legitimate interview.
