MORE DETAILS TO COME.....................

Olympic Stadium, Moscow, Russia - In a battle of Olympic champions, WBA/IBO/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (61-3, 52KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over previously undefeated mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin (26-1, 18KOs). All three judges had it 119-104.

When the fight began, Povetkin came out swinging and forced Wladimir to clinch often on the inside. It took Klitschko a little while to get his famous jab going. During the second round, Wladimir scored a knockdown after landing a hard hook that put Povetkin off-balance and down. Most of the rounds that continued had Povetkin charging in with punches and Klitschko holding him on the inside and pushing his weight down on the Russian challenger.

In the seventh, Klitschko began to let his hands go and scored two knockdowns in the first half of the round. About 20 seconds more and Klitschko scored a third knockdown in the round. Two of the knockdowns appeared to have Povetkin getting clearly pushed down.

More clinching and pushing by Klitschko in several more rounds led to a point being taken away in the eleventh, but Povetkin was taking damage in the contest - and his nose was cut. The twelfth and final round was more of the same.

comment by Boxing Goat, on 10-06-2013
I hated the way Wlad fought but he did what he had to do to gaurantee a win. Its been done thousands of times in history by titlists. Look good next time with the title. Wlad understood early that pov was dangerous after he threw a couple shots so he neutralized it. The biggest thing that got on ...

Can there be a bigger indictment of how pathetic the HW division has been in recent years than a dancing bear like WK, with obvious limited skills has been so dominant to not even have been in a competitive fight? And that a 30 something undefeated challenger displays absolute NO skills in the r...

[QUOTE=Barry Allen]If Wlad could get all these fights before he retires he'll be in the top 3 alltime at heavyweight. It would be a great accomplishment! :boxing:[/QUOTE] Lol stop it Wlad barely has been good wins as the era of heavies are finished Wlad will not even be a top ten heavy, ...

What complete and utter tripe this "fight" was. It would be really, really good it Wladimir just retired right now.
