by admin on Вторник, Март 5th, 2013

The Ukrainian heavyweight professional boxer Wladimir Klitschko will defend his WBA, IBF and WBO titles against former sparring partner Francesco Pianeta in Mannheim on 4 May. The 36 years old boxer is making the 14th defence of his second stint as a world heavyweight champion.

Francesco Pianeta, residing in Germany, is undefeated in 29 professional fights, with one draw.

Pianeta said:»Many see me as an outsider but I will knock Klitschko out and turn the world of boxing on its head.»

Klitschko’s last victory was a unanimous decision over Mariusz Wach in November.

Wladimir’s older brother Vitali holds the WBC title while Britain’s David Haye and Tyson Fury are ranked in the top 10 by the WBA, IBF and WBO.
