In pictures: Wladimir Klitschko trains for fight inside a German mall

World heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko of Ukraine and challenger Alex Leapai of Australia work out during their official training session – inside a mall in Oberhausen, Germany – ahead of their IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO World Championship fight, which is scheduled for Sunday, April 27. It is the first time in 106 years an Australian, albeit a Samoan-born one, has lined up for a shot at the World Heavyweight title. But Leapai will have to do it the hard way against Klitschko, who has the edge over his opponent in age, weight, reach and experience.
