Sosnowski to Face Klitschko

Current European heavyweight champion, Albert “The Dragon” Sosnowski (45-2-1, 27KO) will have the opportunity to fulfill a life- long dream of becoming heavyweight champion of the world, when he takes on WBC heavyweight king, Vitali Klitschko (39-2, 37KO) on May 29th at Veltins Arena, in Gelsenkirchen, Germany.

The 31-year-old Polish native Sosnowski is promoted by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing (USA), Keyspan Media (Poland) and Matchroom Sport (UK). Sosnowski is coming off dominating unanimous decision victory over Paolo Vidoz in December to pick up the vacant European heavyweight title. Sosnowski also holds an 8th round TKO victory over Mike Tyson conqueror Danny Williams, who Klitschko also defeated by 8th round TKO.

Sosnowski has quick hands for a heavyweight, and at 31 he is 7 years younger then the champion, something that could give Klitschko problems. Can Sosnowski pull off the upset? Only time will tell.
