By Luke Furman

WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has given high praise to one of his main sparring partners, Olympic bronze medal winner Deontay Wilder (25-0, 25KOs). Klitschko is currently using Wilder to prepare for the November 10th defense against Mariusz Wach in Hamburg, Germany. Wilder himself is going to fight on December 15th at the Los Angeles Sports Arena in California.

Wladimir was impressed by Wilder's strength and boxing ability. He says the 27-year-old will be a future star in the heavyweight division.

"My sparring partners being tall is not the end of it, the most important thing is that they could fight well. I had excellent rounds of sparring with Deontay Wilder. He is a young and talented boxer, who certainly is one of the future stars in the heavyweight division. The competition in the training, with the sparring partners, was a great challenge for me. Fighting with them gave me pleasure," Klitschko said.

If Wlad has respect for him then that's all I need to know.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll]Who is a better judge of talent: Wlad Klitschko or the biased Brit Earl Hickey?[/QUOTE] If Wilder loses when he fights his first fighter with a pulse... Oh I don't know, similar to Seth Mitchell......would the answer be Earl Hickey?

[QUOTE=Own3d]I'll go with Hickey, Wlad made a fight with Mormeck and said he was like Tyson. I don't think Hickey is that dumb.[/QUOTE] That was just him hyping the fight though.
