Boxing fans love knockouts. They also like when those knockouts are happening in the Heavyweight division.
Live from the Cologne Arena in Germany on HBO at a 5 PM start time, the best heavyweight in the world will be looking to avenge a knockout loss he suffered in 2004.
Wladimir Klitschko will be looking to get revenge when he steps in with Lamon Brewster. The two fighters met in April of 2004 and Brewster scored a impressive 5th round KO.
That was the last loss that Klitschko has suffered and he is a much different fighter since then. The hype that surrounds Wladimir is legitimate.
A lot of fight fans believe that Wladimir Klitschko is hands down the best heavyweight in the world. I am in total agreement with them. Ever since he has been fighting under legendary trainer Emanuel Steward, he has looked unbeatable. He is on a six fight winning streak with all fights coming in dominating fashion. Four of those six wins have come the way of TKO. His power is simply amazing and his footwork continues to improve fight after fight. The jab he posseses is like a hammer and when it is thrown, there is no stopping Klitschko.
Lamon Brewster wants to prove to the world that his first victory over Wladimir wasn't a fluke. He is taking the me versus the world approach as nobody is picking him to win the rematch. If he can get Klitschko into a slug fest and stay away from the jab, he has an outside shot to pull off the upset. With a win, Brewster would be looked at as a true contender in the division that seems to have ten different title holders.
Wladimir Klitschko is a 5-1 betting favorite in this Heavyweight title fight for a reason. He has speed and power and his defense has been improving. If he just boxes and takes the power punches when they are open, he should get another knockout victory. The only way Brewster stays in this fight would be by landing a big shot early on. The Klitschko of old had a glass jaw and Brewster took advantage of it once.I don't see that happening again.
This is a must see rematch, and I'll be there watching.
