More:



IBF Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko annexes the WBO title held by Sultan Ibragimov with an uninspiring unanimous decision. Using only his jab to dominate long stretches of the bout, Klitschko finally creates some excitement when he knocks Ibragimov into the ropes with a pair of right hands in the ninth round and stuns the WBO Champion in the final seconds of the eleventh.

It could be rather boring to watch Wlad sometimes.

dizzy's picture

This fight had no chance to be entertaining. Ibragimov had switched to Mayweather's camp two years prior and was being completely rebuilded to the Philadelphia-style boxer, which for someone nurtured by the Soviet boxing school for decades was incredibly difficult. Klitschko on his part became a smart, but cautious fighter under Manny Steward, but at least Manny actually tried to work on Wlad's strenghts instead of completely changing his fighting style. The result was a boring, one-sided fight in which Ibragimov simply could not get behind Wlad's very long and precise jab.
