14.02.04 - Corrie Sanders and Vitali Klitschko have begun talks for a bout for the vacant WBC title, which will be taking place on April 24 in either New York or Las Vegas. The title was vacated when Lewis retired from boxing rather than defend against number #1 ranked challenger Vitali Klitschko in a rematch. On Wednesday’s news conference, Corrie Sanders said “When I beat Vitali, I’m sure I’ll be the only person that can beat two brothers in the same division.”
Sanders knocked out Vladimir Klitschko in the 2nd round in March to win the WBO Heavyweight title. "I'm going to whack Klitschko like he's never been whacked before. Nobody gave me a chance against Wladimir. That was a good fight, and this one will be even better,” Sanders said.
Lennox Lewis will help promote the match as a director with the Britain-based Sport Entertainment & Media Group. Lewis is a close friend of Sanders, and was instrumental in giving him valuable advice before his bout with Vladimir Klitschko.
