*of K2 promotions

"We are excited about this deal with Integrated Sports and giving US boxing fans the opportunity to watch Vitali fight live in the US. When he fought (Chris) Arreola last September in Los Angeles, he had the highest ratings on HBO last year, which proved boxing fans are always interested to see Vitali fight. He will use this fight to continue the Klitschko domination of the heavyweight division."

Albert Sosnowski Quotes

“This is a dream come true, a once-in-a-lifetime chance to fight Klitschko for his WBC _title_ belt. For me, Klitschko is over the hill. I know that I am the underdog for everybody, but I tell you, Klitschko will regret picking me. I know many Polish fans in the United States and Canada will watch the fight and support me. I will be the first Polish Heavyweight Champion of the World.”

Adamek On Why He Didn't Fight Vitali Klitschko

Former cruiserweight champion and heavyweight hopeful Tomasz Adamek recently spoke on why he passed up a fight with current WBC champion Vitali Klitschko when Vitali's original opponent pulled out of his fight back in September 2009.

"It was almost a year ago. I got an offer three weeks before the fight. I'm not afraid of a tough fight, but I go into the ring to win, and not just to earn money. At the time I wasn't ready to fight an opponent like Klitschko. God willing our paths will cross one day."

He also discussed a potential fight with the WBA heavyweight champion David Haye if he gets past Chris Arreola on April 24th.

"First, I must meet with Arreola. I know that my promoter discussed something with Haye's manager, but the details are unknown to me."
