Today from Mannheim, Germany, Wladimir Klitschko defends his world titles against Francesco Pianeta.

Wladimir Klitschko returns to the ring today in Germany to defend his WBA, IBF, and WBO heavyweight titles against Italy's Francesco Pianeta, from the SAP-Arena in Mannheim.

The show will go live at 4:30 pm EDT on Epix and EpixHD.com in the US, the latter delivering a free stream if you sign up for a two-week trial. RTL in Germany and ESPN UK will also have the fight live overseas.

Klitschko (59-3, 50 KO) is the massive favorite yet again, as Pianeta (28-0-1, 15 KO) is largely unproven. While the 6'5" southpaw could in theory present some stylistic challenges for Wladimir, the 37-year-old Klitschko has been on such a dominant roll that it's hard to imagine a lightly-regarded fringe contender giving him any real trouble.

We'll be here, anyway, as Wladimir's fights do always matter, and are always events. It's a fine appetizer for our Mayweather-Guerrero coverage starting at 7:00 pm EDT tonight.
