Arguably, and very possibly, the last great American heavyweight champion (begging Deontay Wilder’s pardon) Lamon Brewster will be a very interested viewer when heavyweight giants Anthony Joshua, the IBF king, and Wladimir Klitschko, the former world ruler, clash in London next month.
Polish giant Mariusz Wach (33-2, 17 KOs) will become one of the sparring partners of the IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (18-0, 18 KOs) in his preparations for a fight against former two-time heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-4, 54 KOs), Ringpolska.pl reports.
Mariusz Wach boxed with Wladimir Klitschko in November 2012 and lost to him by a wide unanimous decision.
French heavyweight Johann Duhaupas (34-4, 21 KOs) will become one of the sparring partners of a former two-time world champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-4, 54 KOs), who will start sparring part of the training camp next week in Austria.
Duhaupas recently sparred with Polish giant Mariusz Wach (33-2, 17 KOs), who he helped to prepare for the fight against Erkan Teper (16-2, 10 KOs) which was won by Wach by unanimous decision.
Anthony Joshua is likely to be taking on the best version of Wladimir Klitschko, according to Carl Froch.
Klitschko has just turned 41 and will have not boxed for 18 months when he faces the British superstar at Wembley Stadium on April 29.
Former WBA interim heavyweight champion Luis “The Real King Kong” Ortiz (27-0, 23 KOs) has been added to the April 22 Andre Berto vs. Shawn Porter card at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Although officially there is no confirmation on who will be his opponent there are strong rumors that it might be Derric Rossy (31-12, 15 KOs).
