Klitschko To Donate Tickets To Los Angeles Firefighters

LOS ANGELES, USA -- Heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko is donating at least 100 tickets to his WBC title bout against Chris Arreola to firefighters battling the wildfires in the Los Angeles area.

Heavyweight champion Ukrainian Vitali Klitschko.

Klitschko says he can see the fires from his hillside home, where he lives with his wife and children. Though his family's home isn't in danger from the fires in the San Gabriel Mountains, the Ukrainian champion has been touched by the firefighters' efforts during the lengthy efforts to contain the blazes.

Klitschko announced the donations Wednesday for his fight at Staples Center on Sept. 26 against the unbeaten Arreola. The fight is Klitschko's third major bout in Los Angeles, where he makes one of his three homes.
