Sosnowski Aims To Be 1st Polish Heavyweight Champ

Heavyweight contender and former EU champion Albert Sosnowski (45-2-1, 27 KOs) is very confident ahead of his WBC heavyweight championship fight this Saturday, May 29th against current WBC champ Viatli Klitschko (39-2, 37 KOs) and plans on becoming the 1st Polish heavyweight champion. Here's what he had to say...

On Adamek defeating Arreola

“I would like to continue this way of winning fights by Polish boxers."

On how he will be different than other Klitschko opponents

“You can make the assumption that those guys lost before they even stepped in the ring. I am going into the ring to win and whatever presents itself, body punches, head punches, whatever, I will try to win.”

“I don’t want to say too much because I want to exploit his weaknesses. Klitschko fights in a very unorthodox way. The way he leaves himself open after he punches gives me some idea of what I would like to do, some of the defensive liabilities I’d like to exploit. Of course, I have to be aware of the punches from both hands because he can knock people out with either hand. Everything is prepared. The question is how we do it in the ring.”

On being the underdog

“Of course, I’ve heard the pundits say I have no chance, but it really doesn’t matter because the people who I listen to and trust, my trainers, my family, my girlfriend, of course my manager, they believe in me and whatever is being said by others makes no difference. I’m happy and we all believe I have a chance to win.”

On what he learned from his loss to Lawrence

“I made a mistake preparing for this fight. I know what I did wrong. But the loss to Zuri Lawrence catapulted me to a different part of my career, a better part of my career…winning all those fights and the European championship.”

On what he learned since

“You have to believe in yourself. You have to believe in every minute of every round that what you’re doing is right. Fighting against Klitschko is a different thing altogether, obviously, but it’s the heavyweight division and Vitali Klitschko is just a man, just like me.”
