This Saturday at the O2 Arena in Hamburg, Germany HBO Boxing presents a special presentation featuring reigning world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, seeking his 17th consecutive successful heavyweight title defense, against undefeated challenger Kubrat Pulev. The Klitschko vs. Pulev weigh-ins were held on Friday in advance of the fight, and right here, you can find the official weigh-in results, with photos and videos of the fighters as well.
Official Klitschko vs. Pulev Weights from Germany:
- Wladimir Klitschko: 245.82 lbs.
- Kubrat Pulev: 246.92 lbs.
The weights are so exact because they were provided in kilograms at first. Klitschko weighs 111.5 kgs, and Pulev 112 kgs.
The size factor is one of several intriguing points in this fight. Pulev evenly stacks up with Klitschko in terms of size and strength, and combined with his unbeaten professional record and strong amateur credentials, presents perhaps the toughest challenge of Klitschko’s recent career. This should be a great one for fight fans, and for those looking for action in the stagnant heavyweight division.
Saturday’s HBO Boxing telecast for Klitschko vs. Pulev begins live at 4:45 p.m. (ET/PT). It will re-air in the evening at midnight.
