Titles at Stake:
Three years after Vitali pulled out of a fight with him and retired from boxing, Hasim Rahman finally gets his crack at a Klitschko brother, the IBF and WBO Heavyweight Champion Wladimir. The bout comes too late for Rahman, who fights as a shell of himself and is thoroughly dominated for five rounds before being knocked down after three left hooks in the sixth. Rahman beats the count, but Wladimir continues to hammer him early into the seventh until Referee Tony Weeks stops the fight.
