Wladimir Klitschko (48-3, 43 KOs), from Kiev, Ukraine, has his eye on revenge when he faces Lamon Brewster (33-3, 29 KOs), from Vero Beach, Fla. in this scheduled 12-round heavyweight championship bout. In their first showdown, on April 10, 2004, Brewster withstood a barrage of punches and grabbed a heavyweight title with a dramatic fifth-round TKO win over an exhausted Klitschko.
Since aligning with accomplished trainer Emanuel Steward, Klitschko has regained his title and is on a six-fight winning streak. Fresh off an easy second-round knockout win over Ray Austin in March, he now looks to avenge his last defeat. Brewster enters this fight intending to regain a heavyweight title and prove to the world that his first win over Klitschko wasn’t a fluke.
All WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING events are broadcast in HDTV. HBO viewers must have access to the HBO HDTV channel to watch HBO programming in high definition.
The executive producer of WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING is Rick Bernstein; producer, Thomas Odelfelt; director, Marc Payton.
