WBA / IBF / WBO / IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and WBO mandatory challenger Alex Leapai met for the first time on Tuesday at a press conference in Oberhausen, Germany to kick off their April 26 clash.

Wladimir Klitschko: “I am impressed of Alex. He is very confident and has no self-doubt. This will be a very strong challenge which I am looking forward to.”

“My brother Vitali is fighting for democracy in the Ukraine right now and I will fight with the same motivation as the demonstrants on the Maidan square against Leapai. And I will win, just as the Ukrainians will win their fight.”

Alex Leapai: “Klitschko is a great fighter, but he’s been knocked out before and he’s never fought anyone who can punch like me.’’

“Klitschko is very tall but no different to a lot of the guys I’ve fought. He knows how to use his reach, so it’s something that we’ve got to work on but I’ve fought a lot of guys his height and it’s all about cutting the distance and getting inside.”
