Australian heavyweight boxer Alex Leapai has the opportunity to become Australia’s first ever world heavyweight champion after confirming a 27 April, 2014 showdown against Ukranian, Wladimir Klitschko.

The 34 year-old number one contendor defeated Russian, Denis Boystov in November 2013 to set up the historic bout, inking a deal which secures the biggest fight of his life, and quite possibly the biggest fight in Australian boxing history.

Before his loss to Leapai, Boystov boasted an undefeated 33-0 record including 26 victories by way of knock out which reconfirms the Australian’s credentials as a genuine world title contender.

The Queensland father of six, who stands at 6'1 and has 30 wins (30-4-3) to his credit, has foregone his regular job in Brisbane to execute a path towards boxing greatness; a date with destiny as the first Australian in 106 years to challenge for a unified world heavyweight title. 

“I’m a proud Australian and Samoan and above all else I want to secure the title to show everyone that  you can overcome all odds to achieve your dreams,” confirmed the quietly spoken Leapai.         

“I’d love to make history for both countries and I know I’ll need to knock out the champion to claim the title, so that’s my focus.”

It’ll be a mountainous physical and psychological challenge for Leapai to overcome the world champion who stands 6'7, boasts an impressive 61-3-0 (51 KO) record and has dominated the heavyweight division for almost a decade, losing his last fight in 2004.
