STORY: Wladimir Klitschko will match legendary champion Joe Louis in boxing’s record books with his 27th heavyweight title fight on Saturday against unbeaten American Bryant Jennings at Madison Square Garden.

“Dr. Steelhammer” Klitschko, 39, has put a stranglehold on the heavyweight division as king of the hill stretching back nine years and 17 successful defenses in a row since winning the crown for the second time in 2006.

The two fighters held their last press conference on Tuesday (April 21) before the April 25th showdown at Madison Square Garden, and Klitschko sounded confident.

“I’m definitely excited about this fight. I’m definitely excited to fight at Madison Square Garden. Seven years break, back in the states. Fantastic. Right time, right venue and right opponent.”

The 6-foot-6 (2 meter) Ukraine carries a 63-3-0 record into the bout against 30-year-old Bryant Jennings of Philadelphia, who is 19-0 since taking up boxing six years ago.

Jennings said history will be made when he faces off against his Ukrainian opponent.

“April 25th is history. It’s history for me, it’s history for Philadelphia, it’s history for all of my supporters, it’s history for my team, it’s history for everybody that’s involved with Bryant Jennings. And let’s begin this by saying I make mistakes too. I ain’t perfect, but guess what? I’m going to be perfect Saturday night,” said Jennings.

Youthful exuberance may go only so far against Klitschko, who has shown himself a master technician during his long run.

Should Klitschko conquer Jennings, other up-and-comers await including Englishman Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, who holds the WBC belt, the only one to elude the Ukrainian.
