Wladimir Klitschko and Mariusz Wach weighed in today in Germany, coming in just under 250 pounds and looking ready to fight tomorrow.
Wladimir Klitschko and Mariusz Wach hit the scales today in Germany for tomorrow's showdown of heavyweight giants, both coming in just under 250 pounds and looking in good shape.
Klitschko weighed in at 246.9 pounds, about two pounds lighter than he was in July when he faced Tony Thompson. Both of his fights in 2012 have been very easy overall, as he stopped Thompson in six and knocked out undersized Jean Marc Mormeck in four. Neither opponent gave him any real resistance at all, and didn't seem as though they'd come to win.
Wach, who weighed in at 249.1 pounds, will have a height advantage on the Ukrainian champion, a true rarity. Standing 6'8", the Polish giant is a truly huge man, and the hope -- even among Klitschko fans, I would wager -- is that he'll be able to offer something that actually challenges the three-body world titlist.
Bad Left Hook will have live coverage of Klitschko vs Wach tomorrow afternoon, as the fight will air on Epix and EpixHD.com in the United States.
