Wladimir Klitschko to face Brewster in Germany

IBF heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko will defend his title against Lamon Brewster in a July 7 rematch in Germany.

The bout will be held in Cologne Arena, K2 Promotions said Monday.

In a 2004 fight for the WBO title, Brewster won with a fifth-round technical knockout. Klitschko had knocked down Brewster in the fourth round, but he was saved by the bell.

"This chance for revenge against Lamon Brewster is a dream come true," Klitschko said. "He is without a doubt an extremely dangerous opponent, but I always hoped for a chance to redeem myself."

Klitschko (48-3 with 43 KOs) needed only a few punches to stop Ray Austin in the second round last month. Brewster (33-3 with 29 KOs) lost the WBO title in April 2006 to Sergei Liakhovich in a unanimous decision.

"I will knock out Klitschko again," Brewster said, "and then no one will be able to say that the first win was a fluke."
