By Allan Fox: IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (59-3, 50 KOs) has selected out a particularly weak opponent in Francesco Pianeta (28–1, 15 KOs) to battle on May fourth, and today Wladimir has already been beginning the effort of attempting to construct the 28-year-old up to ensure that boxing fans believe that this can be a competitive fight. It is not. Pianeta is incorporated in the same class as Wladimirs recent competitors Jean Marc Mormeck and Mariusz Wach, although not just like Tony Thompson, who Wladimir beat with a sixth round knockout last This summer.
Wladimir is going to be facing the 64 Pianeta in the SAP-Arena, Mannheim, Baden-Wrttemberg, Germany. Pianeta shows up at 65, but having seen him and Wladimir standing in person, its obvious that Pianeta, #9 WBA, #12 WBA, is 2 inches shorter compared to 66 Wladimir. Wladimir stated Hes [Pianeta] effective, youthful, and hungry, so Im likely to face a genuine great challenge. Im likely to my training camping over a couple of days, and that i is going to do as always my preparation, and can help you stay up-to-date how situations are going. Wladimir is true concerning the southpaw Pianeta being youthful and hungry, however the bit relating to this as being a real challenge and him being effective is clearly a lot of baloney because Pianeta is much from his class within this fight, and that he has hardly any energy to talk of. Pianeta is simply a slapper with energy, without speed, and without the opportunity to move about the ring unless of course hes shuffling.
This really is Wladimir building the man up to ensure that his German boxing fans is going to be wanting to begin to see the fight and wont think Wladimir selected out an over-matched up opponent, that is what he did. Wladimir was said to be fighting WBA heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin, but he requested the planet Boxing Association for permission to slide within an optional title defense against Pianeta. Its difficult to find why there is a pressing requirement for Wladimir to manage someone like Pianeta once the guy does not possess a group of followers, and hes not someone who the boxing world discusses when theyre mentioning the very best heavyweights within the division. It simply appears like Wladimir is cherry picking competitors to milk his title.
