Klitschko vs Leapai: Live streaming results and round-by-round coverage

Thorsten Wagner

Wladimir Klitschko faces Alex Leapai today in Germany for the WBA, IBF, and WBO world heavyweight titles.

This afternoon at 5:00 pm EDT on ESPN (US), Eurosport (UK), and RTL (Germany), as well as PPV in Australia and New Zealand, Wladimir Klitschko returns to defend his WBA, WBO, and IBF world heavyweight titles against Alex Leapai.

Klitschko (61-3, 51 KO) is a huge favorite in the bout, but that is pretty much par for the course nowadays. Leapai (30-4-3, 24 KO) gets the shot due to his November win over previously-unbeaten Denis Boytsov.

Much of the fight's hype -- what there is of it, anyway -- has been disrupted by 42-year-old Shannon Briggs, who interrupted this week's final press conference, which probably says about as much about this fight as anything could. Any sort of upset here would be enormous.

We'll have live coverage of the ESPN airing starting at 5:00 pm EDT. If the fight stinks, as it probably will, don't give up on boxing for the day! There's a Showtime bill later this evening.
