But why? Kalle Sauerland: "Bernd Boente, Klitschko’s manager, has
been talking to Marco directly about the possibility of fighting
Klitschko. Now we have used the official channels to approach them with
an offer." And the Klitschko-Camp did not take long to respond. After
just 20 minutes they declined the offer! "Of course, we are now
excepting them to come up with a counter offer. We are always willing to
hold personal talks to discuss the terms for such a fight. Then we will
see if they will actually put their money where their mouth is. We
definitely want to make this fight happen."
Klitschko versus Huck - perhaps the fight the heavyweight division
has been waiting for. "We have been working with the Sauerlands for 18
years now and been hosting great fight nights at the Gerry Weber

highlight. We will do everything possible to make this fight happen,"

Mega-Fight. Weber: "We have made a serious offer to the
Klitschko-Management, which we believe should make everyone involved

Weber’s and Sauerland’s for trying to give me this opportunity. I will
prove to everybody that I am ready for the Klitschkos."
Before such fight the current WBA
Super Champion Wladimir Klitschko has to take on WBA Regular Champion
Alexander Povetkin before the end of February 2012, as ordered by the
