"I'm going to have to prove not just my boxing skills but my age against Dereck," Klitschko said at one of the news conferences to promote the fight. "I am 40 but I feel 25. I am in great condition, great form and have great experience.
"I'm physically, emotionally, mentally looking forward to this fight because it's going to be one heck of a fight, I tell you that now."
Both camps had to be pulled apart Friday after the British fighter, his face partially concealed by a Union Jack handkerchief, hit Klitschko across the face with his open right hand and launched a series of insults.

"Everybody's tired of you and your brother," Chisora said. "There's no excitement in the ring. It's time for the new king. People want a new relief in boxing. Him and his brother have killed the sport I love."
But the tale of the tape is all in Klitschko's favor: he is 6 foot 7 and has an 80 inch reach; Chisora is 6 2 with a 74 inch reach.
Chisora has bravely predicted he will knock out the Ukrainian in the eighth round and claims he can "smell fear" in Klitschko's camp. Klitschko has brushed aside such boasts but says he takes the British challenger seriously.
"Cheer up! Come on, let's go!" said Jason Crutchfield, her coach and trainer. "This is the Olympic trials! You won! You're fighting in the finals! You get a day off! Cheer up!"
Vitali's usually jabs away at his opponents until he can deliver his big right hand. Chisora thinks the style is boring and has dulled the heavyweight division, but it has been effective.
The Zimbabwe born Chisora is one of those who say the heavyweight division has become boring because of the dominance of Vitali and his younger brother Wladimir, who holds the other significant belts. But they remain huge drawing cards in Germany, where their fights have become heavily choreographed events, with rock shows in the ring, laser lights and champagne flowing. The 12,500 capacity Olympic Hall is sold out.
Vitali is the second oldest boxer to hold a world heavyweight title behind George Foreman, who was 45 when he knocked out Michael Moorer to reclaim the WBA belt in Las Omega Seamaster Professional Leather Vegas in 1994.
MUNICH (AP) Standing head to head for the customary "stare down," challenger Dereck Chisora slapped WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko during the weigh in for their title fight Saturday.
"I'm really looking forward to teaching this young gentleman a lesson," the champion said. "He is from Great Britain, but he's lacking appropriate manners."

"I'm looking forward to this fight," Chisora said. "And I trained hard. And the way we're going to be fighting will be a hundred miles an hour from the first round to round eight, which I promise you fans that he's going down on."

"The main thing in life is experience, in all jobs and also in boxing. I have defended my title against many styles. I don't want to break the record of George Foreman, but 40 isn't old. I'll show that."
