Wladimir Klitschko: ‘This may sound arrogant, but I am like Mount Everest’

The 41-year-old’s training camp looks like the setting for a horror film – and he is in the mood to give Anthony Joshua a scare when they meet later this month

Stanglwirt is a sprawling bio-hotel located in the Austrian Alps and which at first glance looks like the setting for a slow-burning, creepy horror movie. With its mountainous background and somewhat kitsch interior – heavy wood panelling, stripy sofas – it brings about memories of the Overlook Hotel from Stephen King’s The Shining. Walk through the lobby, past the staff dressed in lederhosen, and it feels like only a matter of time until a clock goes off, a cuckoo springs out and a body falls down the stairs.

But on this spring visit there is no horror to be had. Instead, amid the restaurants and bars, the spas, saunas and swimming pools, resides a story of redemption. Or, as Wladimir Klitschko puts it, fulfilling an obsession.

Barry Hearn: ‘I hit my son with a proper shot but he dropped me twice’

When Eddie Hearn was 16, his father decided to see if he had what it takes to be big in business. The pair’s competitiveness is the bedrock of Matchroom Sport – the force behind the Joshua-Klitschko world title fight at Wembley Stadium

April is a huge month in the money-spinning world of Barry and Eddie Hearn and the father-and-son promotional duo are in knockabout form. Eddie saunters into his dad’s office in Romford and says: “How was Miami?”

“Great,” Barry beams as he rocks in his chair, having landed at Heathrow a few hours earlier. “They’re going crazy about you selling 90,000 tickets for Joshua-Klitschko. They can’t believe it. Where’ve you been?”
