K2 Promotions took advantage of the assembled media in Las Vegas for Mayweather-De La Hoya to hold a press conference for the much anticipated rematch between IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir "Steelhammer" Klitschko (48-3, 43 KOs) and Lamon Brewster (33-3, 29 KOs) at Smith & Wollensky's restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip. The bout will take place on July 7, 2007 in Cologne, Germany and televised live on HBO at 5PM ET/2PM PT with a delayed broadcast at 10:30PM ET/PT. Klitschko, who is eager to avenge the defeat he suffered against Brewster in April 2004, predicted his fight with Brewster will end in a knockout. Brewster's last bout was a twelve round decision loss to Sergei Liakhovich, a bout which he suffered a detached retina in his left eye. According to Brewster, the injury occurred in the first round but he kept fighting saying, "I believe in death before dishonor."

I have Klitschko winning by KO-8

Ive got Klitschko winning this fight as well. KO-8 sounds like a good bet. Could be a bit earlier though. Vladimir is the more skilled fighter, and had Brewster in trouble in the first fight. Klitschko's chin has always been a point of concern but at this point i think he outclasses LB.

im not sure what happened to wlad in the first fight but he gassed big time. i see him handling brewster with relitive ease this time and he may get the stoppage. id bet on the UD though.

Klitscko does get gassed at times i agree. I just think Vlad is the more polished fighter of the two. Hey but when two big guys slug it out you never know. If i was betting i would put money on VK.
