Former world middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog of Russia was shaking his head at the lackluster fight between WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin. This past Saturday night at Olympic Stadium in Moscow, Klitschko won a very wide twelve round decision over Povetkin. But the fight had a lot of clinching and rough tactics on the part of Wladimir, who even lost a point for shoving Povetkin to the floor. Pirog personally attended the match.

"I paid good money to sit in the arena, but I received no pleasure from it. Alexander Povetkin did everything he could, but Klitschko did not fight in manner to display a beautiful fight, he fought just to get the result. Perhaps it was the fact that Povetkin could not oppose him on a serious level. Yet the behavior of Klitschko in the ring...........like other fans I just don't understand it. It was no coincidence that he was booed during his [post-fight] speech," Pirog said.

Pirog was injured in training, we all expect to see him back soon.... He was forced to give up title due to injury.

Even with his size and impressive record, it's fights like these that make me question Wlad's all time greatness. I would pay good money to have seen Manny Steward in Wlad's corner during this fight.
