Klitschko to defend title against Wach
10:11 AEST Thu Aug 23 2012

World heavyweight champion Vladimir Klitschko will defend his WBO, IBF and WBA belts against Poland's Mariusz Wach in Hamburg on November 10, it has been announced.

The 36-year-old Klitschko, who is based in Hamburg, faces his 23rd world title fight against the undefeated Wach, four months after the champion's sixth-round knock-out of US boxer Tony Thompson in Basel.

"It is always something special to box in Hamburg," said Klitschko.

"This fight will also be special because I have never fought against a boxer who is bigger than me and has a longer reach."

At 202cm tall with a reach of 2.08m, Krakow-born Wach, who is based in the United States, is four centimetres taller than Klitschko with a reach two centimetres longer.

Klitschko last fought in Hamburg on July 2, 2011, when he earned a clear points win over Britain's David Haye to add the WBA belt to his collection.
