Boxing: Vitali Klitschko vs. Albert Sosnowski Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Klitschko vs. Sosnowski Live Stream: WBC world heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (39-2, 37 KOs) defends his title tonight at Veltins Arena in Germany against Albert Sosnowski (45-2-1, 27 Kos), a Polish fighter who you probably haven’t heard of.
The 38-year-old from Ukraine will have a big weight advantage over Sosnowski, who won the European title with a points win over Paolo Vidoz in December. Klitschko weighed 247 pounds on Friday, while his challenger weighed 224. Sosnowski, who featured in Poland’s Celebrity Big Brother, will be about six inches shorter than the titleholder.
This will be Vitali’s fourth title defense since he returned to the ring following a four-year hiatus in 2008. He is still fresh at 38 and is vastly experienced at the top level having dispatched Chris Arreola, Juan Carlos Gomez and Sam Peter recently.
“I feel in top shape, I’m well prepared but I will not underestimate him,” Klitschko said in a recent interview.
Prediction: Sosnowski will get a chance to throw some good punches but Vitali will knock him down in under 6.
The Klitschko vs. Sosnowski match starts at 4:30 p.m. ET.
UPDATE: Klitschko defeated Sosnowski by TKO in the 10th round, ending the Pole’s bid to become his country’s first heavyweight champion. The Ukrainian dominated the fight from the start and sent Sosnowski to the canvas with a hard right hand in the 10th before the referee stopped the bout at the 2:20 mark.
