Wladimir Prefers Arreola Next: Eyes David Price, Fury

By Osman Rodriguez

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=iniduoh;11851884]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…
