*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."

Vitali Klitschko Quotes

“I watched Sosnowski’s fights 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.”

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.”
