Banks Impressed With Klitschko's Sparring Workrate

By Luke Furman

Johnathon Banks, trainer of WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko (62-3, 52KOs), says the heavyweight king is displaying nothing but his best in recent sparring sessions. Wladimir used Kevin Johnson, Olympic gold winner Anthony Joshua and several others for sparring.

On September 6th at the O2 World Arena in Hamburg, Klitschko will defend his titles against undefeated mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev (20-0, 11KOs).

The training camp is taking place in Going, Austria.

Banks is most impressed with Klitschko's stamina during sparring. He says Klitschko is keeping pace, without tiring, round after round.

"Wladimir is a real workhorse, he is probably the only heavyweight in the world who could go 15 to 16 rounds at a full pace," Banks said.

Pulev is not a bum at all, he just has a terrible style for beating Wlad. I still think the fight will have interesting moments.

Manny Steward said that it was their work ethic that set the Klitschkos apart from the US HWs he trained. Basically they train like proper athletes.
