Klitschko Lays Down Challenge to Champion Lewis

Germany’s Ukrainian-born boxing star Vitali Klitschko bounced back from his failed World Championship attempt in impressive fashion with a second-round win over Canada's Kirk Johnson in New York on Saturday and instantly fuelled rumors that he would take on champ Lennox Lewis once more. Klitschko was leading on all three scorecards when a bad cut ended his contest with Lewis in the sixth round last June. The 32-year-old has called for a rematch ever since and pressed his claims when defeating the highly-ranked Johnson at Madison Square Garden, taking his record to 33 wins and two losses. "I want to be heavyweight champion of the world. That is my dream and I know I will achieve it,” Klitschko said after the fight. "I know Lennox was watching my fight. He has been a great champion but I am ready to beat him.”
