Long-reigning world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko likens his next challenger, Bryant Jennings of Philadelphia, to the Rocky Balboa character of film fame.But the towering Ukrainian who has ruled the division for nine years does not predict a happy ending for Jennings in their April 25 clash at Madison Square Garden.Klitschko likes his chances as holder of five heavyweight belts and a 63-3 record.Klitschko, 38, says he takes fights one at a time, but could not help but think ahead to a clash with former sparring partner and knockout artist Deontay Wilder.Wilder owns the WBC belt previously held by Klitschko's brother Vitali, who after retiring from boxing was elected mayor of Kiev, Ukraine's capital and biggest city.Winning that belt would complete the Klitschko collection.
