03.08.06 - WBO Heavyweight Champion Sergei “The White Wolf” Liakhovich is issuing a public challenge to the other champions of the major sanctioning bodies to give the fans what they want and begin the unification process by facing him. “I want to fight all of them,” says Liakhovich of IBF Champion Wladimir Klitschko, WBA Champion Nicolay Valuev, and WBC Champion Hasim Rahman. “Let’s get it on. Let’s not waste time with easy challengers. Let’s give the world one heavyweight champion.”
Liakhovich (23-1, 14 KOs) says that since Klitschko’s November showdown against Shannon Briggs and Valuev’s October defense against Barrett seem to be taking long times to finalize, why doesn’t one of them switch course and give the fans a fight they truly want to see?
“Everybody wants to see who the real champion is. I am ready; let’s find out. Stop talking the talk and walk the walk. Sign me up. I’m ready, are any of you?”
