ESPN: The Klitschko brothers, who hold four of the world's five heavyweight boxing titles, have challenged giant Russian Nikolai Valuev to a showdown for his WBA title.
Vitali, who last month came out of retirement to defeat Samuel Peter for the WBC crown and together with younger brother Wladimir, become the first siblings to simultaneously hold world heavyweight belts, issued the challenge Monday.
"Valuev is the biggest heavyweight champion in history. He's huge and dangerous, this won't be easy and I don't want to underestimate him," the Ukrainian said of the 7-foot champion at the WBC's annual convention.
"It will be a difficult fight, but we have a dream, and we are going to make it come true, by taking the last belt for the Klitschko family."
