Krasniqi vs Dimitrenko Presser

Heavyweights Alexander "Sasha" Dimitrenko (28-0, 18 KOs) and Luan "The Lion" Krasniqi (30-3-1, 14 KOs) faced off on October 1st, at a press conference in advance of their huge November 15th collision at the Burg-Wächter Castello in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The current WBO Inter-Continental titleholder Dimitrenko is coming off a brilliant fifth round TKO of Derric Rossy in May, while the eleven years older former heavyweight title challenger Krasniqi, 37, will return to action for the first time since a July 2007 loss against Tony Thompson in a WBO eliminator.

Rated WBO #1 and in the top five of all the major sanctioning organizations' ratings, the 6'8 Dimitrenko is risking his lofty status, while Krasniqi stands to get right back into the title mix with a win.

"We know each other well - having already trained together and sparring, but with the first gong here in Dusseldorf, the friendship is over. I will not be beaten," vowed Dimitrenko.

"I don't underestimate anybody," he continued. "Luan has had good, hard fights, but I will be going all out. My goal is to become a world champion – not to lose!"

A motivated and committed Krasniqi stated, "I am extremely happy that I'm finally boxing again. The fight against Sascha is like a knighthood for me. We're both good and stylish boxers - but I will win.

"Regarding the Thompson fight - I needed the depths to reach the heights. On November 15, I must fight and show what's in me! I think that I'll win and that I'm not finished with boxing."
