WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 51KOs) knows the fans would like to see him exchange punches in a war, but he plans to continue his dominating performances and knockout victories. Wladimir has heard the critics call him "boring" but says it's very hard to dominate the competition and knock them out. Wladimir next opponent being lined up is undefeated Olympic champion Alexander Povetkin of Russia.
"It is so difficult to be that boring. If you think about it, it's so difficult - to not get hit even once, and then knock the guy out in the end. That's the art of boxing and trust me it's not that simple. I understand the complaints, I understand the non-satisfaction of the fans, because it's probably more exciting to see both of the fighters getting hit and one of them going down and getting up and then the other one going down and getting up. There are some fights like that, but I've been in this sport for the past 17 years and I will continue to set my determination to make these fights one-sided, to win, and as I said to do it by knockout," Wladimir said.
