World heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko insists that he will not take victory for granted against challenger Francesco Pianeta on Saturday night.

World heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has vowed to show Francesco Pianeta "his limits" in their encounter on Saturday night.

The 37-year-old will put his WBA, IBF and WBO titles on the line against the undefeated Italian, but despite entering the bout as a heavy favourite, the Ukrainian fighter has insisted that he will not take the 28-year-old lightly.

Klitschko told a press conference: "I don't want to and I won't underestimate Francesco Pianeta. I have prepared how I should, because I know what to expect.

"He's a young chap who, of course, doesn't know his limits. They have to be shown to him in the ring."

Victory on Saturday would be Klitschko's 60th in 63 professional fights.
