1. 00:00 Various of Wladimir Klitschko at the weigh in for his most recent fight, against Alex Leapai in Germany in April.
London. Sunday 6th July 2014
2. 00:20 SOUNDBITE: (English) Wladimir Klitschko (Q: It's been suggested that your fight with Kubrat Pulev could be the most challenging you've faced in some time. Is that how you see it?):
"You know, in boxing you never know what kind of challenge you're going to get in the ring because if you really rely on history, there are a lot of fighters on my list or the other boxers, some of them were really really promoting themselves and the fight and being really really loud and promised a lot, but nothing delivered in the ring. Some others, didn't talk much but were very dangerous in the ring. So you never know which you're going to face in the fight and there's a lot of things that have to come together that night."
3. 01:08 SOUNDBITE: (English) Wladimir Klitschko (Q: Pulev is the second ranked fighter in the world. What do you expect from him when you meet in September?):
"As a professional athlete and I've been around and I know exactly that Kubrat Pulev is an undefeated fighter. He is very emotional, very focused to become a champion and sometimes these guys can do magical things. So I'd better prepare myself accordingly and (I) will defend my titles as I've done it for many years now."
4. 01:32 SOUNDBITE: (English) Wladimir Klitschko (Q: You've achieved an incredible amount in your career. What is it that keeps you motivated to keep fighting?):
"I've been in boxing since I was 14 and it has always been a very competitive sport so you never get bored because all the time there is no routine, all the time you are getting some new opponents and new styles, different sizes, different techniques, different backgrounds, different levels of experience so it's challenging and it's never getting boring and with time you're getting better and better, believe it or not. So you're physical abilities are getting better with the time, not worse. People think that with age things are slowing down but I disagree. So it's why that just keeps me motivated and that keeps me (motivated) to get to the next training came and get ready for another competition."
5. 02:30 SOUNDBITE: (English) Wladimir Klitschko (Q: Russia chose not to broadcast your last fight because of the political situation with the Ukraine. What do you make of this decision?):
"Sport has the power to change the world. And this is the line and the quote from Nelson Mandela and not to show (a) sporting event on television in Russia is definitely a mistake by their political propaganda that is going against the Ukraine. And obviously Klitschko is part of it which has short term, the political propaganda has short term (aims) It's powerful and it works well to brainwash people in the country but it is short term, not long term, and eventually there is going to come a place. I'm more than sure that sport has this power to unite nations and not divide them."
6. 03:21 SOUNDBITE: (English) Wladimir Klitschko (Q: Do you feel that politics and sport should always be kept separate or that they an be related to each other?):
"That (fights) have been shown for more than a decade from both of the brothers (Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko) and I know that boxing is very popular in Russia and there are a lot of fans of boxing and I'm not just talking about the Klitschko brothers (fans) and sport in general and I know that a lot of young men and just youth that are looking forward to maybe becoming maybe champions in sport and in life that they could get excited about something if they have seen it on TV and they want to do the same thing, as an example. But if they don't have this example, even watching it on TV, then guess what is going to happen if they have too much free time and nothing to do. So I feel bad about it (the fights not being shown on Russian TV) and I hope that things are going to change, that the next fight is going to be shown in Russia and as I said, there is nothing but good will from the Klitschko brothers to make things better for the society."
7. 04:26 SOUNDBITE: (English) Wladimir Klitschko (Q: With the World Cup semi-finals due to take place over the next few days, how much have you enjoyed the tournament and who would you like to see win?):
"Of course. I've been following it as with billions of people around the world and there have been exciting matches. Unfortunately the Ukraine didn't make it (into the World Cup) and of course the second choice that I have and I've been a supporter of that team for many many years, especially when you know the guys (players) from the team, and it's the German national team. So I hope that Germany will eventually make their way to the finals and who knows, maybe it will be Holland (they play) maybe not. Who knows? But we'll see. As I said, in sport you never know in advance what is going to happen."
Germany, 25th April 2014:
8. 05:10 Various of the weigh in with Alex Leapai.
The reigning IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion, Wladimir Klitschko, talks about his upcoming fight with Kubrat Pulev and the unifying power of sport.
Wladimir Klitschko has been the world's most dominant heavyweight champion since 2005.
In that nine year spell, he has reeled off 18 straight title bout wins and now lies level with Muhammad Ali in second place on the all-time list for most heavyweight title fights, having contested 25 with only Joe Louis - on 27 - ahead of them.
His last fight was in April of this year, when he beat Elise "Alex " Leapai of Australia, knocking him out in the fifth round.
Next up for Klitschko is Kubrat Pulev of Bulgaria, who could pose an altogether more difficult challenge.
The 33-year-old is undefeated in his 20 professional fights so far, and is currently ranked as second - behind Klitschko - in the world.
Despite many believing that Pulev could really threaten Klitschko, the Ukrainian champion was relaxed - simply stating that, in his experience, some previous opponents "promised a lot, but nothing delivered in the ring. Some others, didn't talk much but were very dangerous in the ring. So, you never know which you're going to face in the fight."
But he did described Pulev as "very emotional, very focused" and admitted that he would be sure to be fully prepared, and focused himself, for the title bout.
Given the manner in which Klitschko has dominated his sport over the years, with a highly-impressive total of 21 title defences, he could be forgiven for finding motivation and new challenges hard to come by.
But he insists that motivation isn't an issue saying "it has always been a very competitive sport, so you never get bored."
Now aged 38, the boxer is also insistent that he has only improved with age.
"You're physical abilities are getting better with the time, not worse. People think that with age things are slowing down but I disagree."
Despite having a huge fan base in Russia, the political situation between Russia and the Ukraine meant that Klitschko's fight with Leapei wasn't broadcast there.
With brother Vitali now the Mayor of Kiev, politics is a matter close to Klitschko's heart.
He described the decision not to screen the fight as "definitely a mistake by their political propaganda that is going against the Ukraine."
But he was swift to add that there is "nothing but good will" from both Klitschko brothers towards Russia, and obviously dearly hopes that the situation will be resolved in time for his 6th September fight with Kubrat Pulev to ensure that fans in Russia can watch it.
With the World Cup in Brazil now nearing it's conclusion, inevitably soccer has dominated the sporting headlines of late.
Klitschko hasn't been unaffected by "World Cup fever" and admitted that in the absence of Ukraine, he is backing his adopted country of Germany for success.
He also predicted a possible meeting with the Netherlands in the final.
But as with everything in sport, he conceded that anything could happen.
