Koenig Pilsener Arena, Oberhausen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany - IBO/WBA/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (62-3, 52KOs) battered overmatched WBO mandatory challenger Alex Leapai (30-5-3, 24KOs) for a fifth round knockout victory. At the start, Klitschko scored with the right hand often and came off with a flash knockdown in the first. Leapai was a sitting duck, getting hit with a high volume of jabs and hard rights. In the fifth, Klitschko continued to do damage and scored two huge knockdowns and referee Eddie Cotton waved things off as Leapai's senses were gone.
