At the ESPRIT Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany - Wladimir Klitschko (57-3, 50KOs) stopped former cruiserweight champion Jean Marc Mormeck (36-5, 22KOs) in the fourth round to retain the WBA/IBO/IBF/WBO heavyweight titles.

Following the match, Wladimir discussed his desire to fight Chris Arreola (35-2, 30KOs) in the United States. But, he also pointed out several other possible challengers, for the future, uncluding undefeated heavyweight giants David Price and Tyson Fury of the UK. Undefeated American contender Seth Mitchell was another future foe that Wladimir named.

"[In the future] there is David Price, a guy who is even taller than me, standing right there at ringside. There is Tyson Fury, an even bigger guy [than me] and heavier. There is [Alexander] Povetkin, an undefeated fighter, Olympic champion and the WBA [regular] champion. There is some other guys. I can use a couple of names, like Seth Mitchell. Chris Arreola has done enough [to be my next fight]. He tremendously knocked a guy out [Eric Molina] in the first round [two weeks ago]. I think Chris Arreola deserves the fight against me and that's the fight to make," Wladimir said.

However, Wladimir will likely be forced to face his IBF mandatory Tony Thompson in a summer rematch.

[QUOTE=nomadman]Arreola eats jabs like oreos. His straight back, forward plodding style will only net him a ferocious beating. That's taking into account the fact that he actually trains for this fight and doesn't come into the ring sporting a nice pair of titties.[/QUOTE] yea but at least he...

yet another indication of the pathetic state of the HW division -- now we're getting retreads like Arreola on the K bro 'bum of the month' club because they've run out of even B level guys to fight -- what a shame....

arreola seems like the real deal, make it happen

comment by nomadman, on 03-04-2012
[QUOTE=iniduoh]Another sh!t fight for Wladimir. Arreola got beaten so bad by Vitali they had to stop it. So why would anyone think he has a chance against Wladimir who is younger and stronger than Vitali. And why is Arreola even getting a shot when everyone knows he has no chance of winning? We n...
