Tensions ran high today in Stuttgart, Germany as Heavyweight contenders Lance Whitaker and Luan Krasniqi weighed in for Saturday’s WBO title elimination bout. “I’m gonna knock him out today, I’m not gonna wait ‘til tomorrow,” said Whitaker following a heated exchange between the two heavyweights, which was touched off when the no-nonsense Whitaker declined a handshake from Krasniqi after the ritual ‘Stare Down’ for photographers. The Germany-based Yugoslavian responded by pushing the 6-8 Californian, touching off a scuffle that was eventually broken up by members of Team Whitaker and security. Needless to say, both fighters are primed and ready for Saturday’s showdown at the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle in Stuttgart, which will determine the mandatory challenger for WBO Heavyweight Champion Lamon Brewster. Whitaker weighed in at a ready 253.5 pounds; Krasniqi weighed in at 224.9 pounds.
