Sosnowski's Ex-Trainer Picks Klitschko To Win

Albert Sosnowski's former trainer Ukrainian Lubomir Palamar has talked recently how he has seen major improvements in Sosnowski over the years, but picks Vitali Klitschko to win come May 29th in their WBC heavyweight championship match.

Palamar On Sosnowski Improvements

“I began to work with Sosnowski in 2001. Right after Sosnowski had lost by knockout to Canadian Arthur Cook. In that bout Sosnowski wasn’t at his best, to put it mildly. He had a lot of technical mistakes, even his punch was set all wrong. Besides he simply wasn’t able to box with southpaws. However Albert was a quick learner – he caught on very fast. Physically he was already strong then, for example he could lift 140 kilos – the result of his trainings with famous Polish strongman Mariusz Pudzianowski. But he had to work on his technique. In his next rating fight Albert was much more convincing and progressed with each bout”.

Palamar On Why He Is Picking Vitali over Sosnowski

“All the trump cards – size, power, reach, champion’s experience are in Vitali’s hands. Now there’s no one better in the heavyweight division than the Klitschko brothers. I watched their recent bouts and was astonished by the fact that they keep on improving, despite their age! So Albert doesn’t really stand a chance. It’s too early for him to face Klitschko. When I worked with Sosnowski, I thought that he would be ready for a championship fight in 2011. But the boxing is beautiful because it’s so unpredictable. So I’ll watch this bout with interest”.
