Wladimir Klitschko and Dereck Chisora participated today in the fight week press conference in Mannheim, Germany to speak about their fight on December 11. IBF, WBO, IBO and “Ring Magazine” champion Klitschko and British and Commonwealth champion Chisora will face off next Saturday at SAP ARENA Mannheim, Germany.
“I had a great training camp in Austria and cannot wait to step into the ring. Chisora is unbeaten and determined, he is very skilled and very active in the ring. I am very well prepared and will definitely not underestimate him.
“I will show him what it is like to fight on a championship level against a man in the ring.
“He might have big dreams, but I will send him back to the UK without any belts.”
“I have the power and I am young so I will take Klitschko into a real fight. Klitschko is 34-years-old, slow and on his downside of his career. I am 29-years-old, very fast and at the peak of my career.”
The fight will be shown live and exclusively on RTL in Germany. In the US, it will be aired on Saturday, Dec.11, 5:00 p.m. ET on ESPN3.com and re-aired the next day, Sunday, Dec. 12 at 2:30 p.m. ET on ESPN. Sky Sports will carry the fight live on pay per view in the UK.
