Klitschko Sosnowski Press Conference

Yesterday was the press conference at the VELTINS Arena in Gelsenkirchen for the upcoming WBC heavyweight championship fight between current champ Vitali Klitschko (39-2, 37 KOs) and the EBU champion Albert Sosnowski (45-2-1, 27 KOs) which will take place May, 29 at the VELTINS-Arena is the home field of famous German soccer team Schalke 04. Both fighters seem very confident heading into their fight. Here is some of what was said during the press conference.

Sosnowski Quotes

"I am very dedicated and still very young in the heavyweight division, and just starting at bigger things. I am very happy and excited about my upcoming match with Klitschko. I love the opportunity and I'm going to use that chance and win the world title.

"I do not think it is a huge step up in class [for me]. He [Vitali] is very schematic and pretty predictable. For the past few years he has picked out his opponents from guys who do not punch, who are not aggressive, who do not have that will - I will be much more stubborn, faster and dedicated."

“Vitali Klitschko’s last opponents were like living punching bags. They had already lost when they were still siting in their locker rooms. The arena is huge and impressive. I don’t care that I am not seen as the favorite for the fight. I will be the first Polish heavyweight champion of the world!”

"I will win this fight and bring the title back to Poland!"

Klitschko Quotes

“I saw Sosnowski’s fights on DVD and must admit that he is a very experienced, quick and tough opponent. He will do anything to get my belt but I promise that this is not going to happen. I want to verify that I am still the strongest heavyweight in the world. I am full of energy, in a top shape and without injuries. I am looking forward to fighting in Germany again and at Schalke arena. I was in Wladimir’s corner when he beat Ruslan Chagev at the arena last June. I have to say that I was jealous on him and desperately wanted to fight here as well. Now, this dream comes true. This is an incredible arena with great fans. The atmosphere will be electrifying.”
