Looking fit and ready, lineal heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and challenger Mariusz Wach weighed in for Saturday night's heavyweight championship bout at O2 Arena in Hamburg, Germany.
A title shot for boxing legend and former 4 time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield is still not out of the realm of possibility.
On November 10th, at the O2 World Arena in Hamburg, Germany, universally recognized Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko (58-3, 51 KOs) will put his Super WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO titles on the line when he faces his most physically imposing challenger to date; Mariusz Wach of Poland.
Fresh off knockout victories over Jean Marc Mormeck and Tony Thompson earlier this year, lineal heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (58-3, 51 KO) appears ready to defend his RING Magazine, WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titles against 6'7½" (202cm) Pole Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15 KO), according to sources in Poland.
Super-sized Polish heavyweight Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15 KO) scored an impressive TKO victory over another large heavyweight, 6′ 8″/203cm Canadian Tye Fields, on Saturday evening in Atlantic City, NJ.
In a battle of super-sized 6'8" heavyweights, Poland's Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15 KOs) scored a sixth round knockout over Tye Fields (49-5, 44 KOs). Wach sent Fields to the canvas almost face first following a series of hard right hands. The bout had been competitive until that point.
"I got away from my game plan," Fields said. "I thought I could tie him up, but he caught me with a right hand and put me on the ground. When I tried to get up, I was pretty wobbly. I knew coming in he was a great boxer. I wish him the best."
"I felt there was no way in hell you can beat me over here with my crowd and my people," Wach said.
