WBO Champions Wladimir Klitschko, Iván Calderón & Oscar De La Hoya Meet

On March 25th, 2008, three WBO Super Champions Wladimir Klitschko, Oscar De La Hoya, and Iván Calderón met today in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Wladimir met up with the other champions in a municipal gym located in Caimito in the southern part of San Juan where Oscar is training for his upcoming fight with Steve Forbes scheduled for May 3, 2008. The fighters met and talked informally about different boxing techniques and everyone seemed to be in a friendly mood. Wladimir also seemed to like his experience at the gym and has suggested possibly using the gym for training for future fights.

He's been in San Juan since last Sunday and has been attending activities including receiving the WBO Super Championship Belt, getting a birthday bash, and playing golf with WBO President, Francisco “Paco” Valcárcel and Puerto Rican golf legend Chi Chi Rodríguez, owner of the El Legado Golf Resort golf course. Wladimir will be leaving Wednesday morning, and possibly much too soon since he seems to be having a great time.
