    Heavyweight champion of the world Wladimir Klitschko displays a distinct rhythm when he hits the ring.

    Watching Klitschko work the ring is like watching a maestro conduct an orchestra. He's methodically precise and powerful, dominating every angle and calculatedly conquering each opponent. There's certainly something musical to his boxing style.

    Given that style, it's no surprise that he compares his fight strategy to a "song" and he listens to everything from Red Hot Chili Peppers to Chris Cornell. In fact, Red Hot Chili Peppers' classic "Can't Stop" has served as his entrance music. That propulsive riff is the perfect complement to Klitschko's elegantly punishing style, especially when it snaps into that pure funk rock fury the band is the best at.

    One of the best in heavyweight fighters in history, Wladimir Klitschko sat down for an exclusive interview with ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino. In this video piece, he talks about who's on his iPod, his fighting strategy, the upcoming Rocky musical, and so much more.

    This will definitely knock you out!
