Heavyweight contender Johnathon Banks, who now trains WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko, was shocked that Mariusz Wach took so much punishement and lasted the entire twelve rounds on Saturday night in Hamburg. The Polish giant showed a giant chin, filled with iron, as he took every punch possible punch from Wladimir and never once was he seriously hurt.

"To be honest, I was quite shocked that he was able to survive such powerful punches. It surprised me more than anything else. Wladimir hit him with some very good shots. I think we all were impressed by the fact that the Wach did not go down. I am convinced that no one before the fight thought [Wach] was capable of withstanding the shots. After all, he's never been hit by punches that strong. He showed great determination and I think he has an interesting future," Banks said.

"Klitschko did not have any problems. He had the entire fight under his control. He knew from the beginning to the end, what was happening in the ring. But I must admit that maybe the opponent was a little underestimated. We knew he would be perfectly prepared for Wladimir and that he would not be such an easy fight as everyone thought. Wach said he would be able to last the full twelve rounds and that's what showed up. Wladimir, however, dominated the fight, but I think overall it was certainly a very good boxing match."

Mad respect to Wach for taking that brutal unholy beating but his corner should have stopped that fight after the 8th in my opinion. He was never going to win, he did not have the power nor the ability to so what was the point? Now he probably suffered permanent brain damage in that fight. He was...

[QUOTE=Cállate!]meh he should have been stopped in the 8th or 9th was it? wach was taking a massive beating with no response[/QUOTE] I thought that 8th rd could've been a tko also. Wach wasn't hitting back when Klitschko was battering him with those rights.

[QUOTE=anonymous2.0]I don't think I heard Banks tell Wladimir to get his man out of there, it was more box, box, box. I think the real question is, what would Stewart have told Wladimir? Would he have preferred Wlad to just box or get Wach out?[/QUOTE] Well he did try to end him in the 8th...

I don't think I heard Banks tell Wladimir to get his man out of there, it was more box, box, box. I think the real question is, what would Stewart have told Wladimir? Would he have preferred Wlad to just box or get Wach out?

Have you seen a pic of his chin? It looks like he had a piece of marble grafted on.
