7:31 am on 26 April 2014

Samoan-born boxer Alex Leapai is talking big in the lead-up to tomorrow's heavyweight world title fight against Ukrainian legend Wladimir Klitschko.

The 34 year old Leapai is the first Australian in 106 years to challenge for a unified world heavyweight title, with the WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO and The Ring Heavyweight Championship belts all up for grabs in Germany.

Wladimir Klitschko has said he plans go on the attack and trade punches with Leapai, who says bring it on.

"Yeah I'm pretty keen to trade punches with Klitschko because he's never traded with anybody with the same power as me. Honestly once he feels what I've got I believe his game plan is going to go out the window and he's going to change to another plan. He's going to think twice about trading punches with me."
