Wladimir Klitschko Supports New Youngster Project

WBO, IBF and IBO world heavyweight champion WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO is backing a new project called Fight for Peace, a social project aimed at 11 to 21 year olds, which is aimed to get youngsters off the streets and into the gym. Wlad will join boxing legend Barry McGuigan at the combat show Seni 08 on Saturday April, 26Th 2008 to promote Fight for Peace and its new academy in North Greenwich.

Project founder Luke Dowdney said: "I am delighted that Wladimir and Barry are helping to launch Fight for Peace in the UK at Seni 08.

"Their involvement clearly demonstrates that elite champions can also be concerned with the plight of those less fortunate than themselves.

"Having them at the Fight for Peace launch is a real inspiration to the young people at the project who are greatly looking forward to meeting them."

The Fight for Peace academy will offer martial arts, boxing, gym, and personal development classes after school and college hours.
