11/11/2012 All in a nights work for Wladimir
It was written on the wall but some question marks did hang over whether or not Wladimir Klitschko would be able to get through the unbeaten Polishman Mariusz Wach. After the recent passing of Manny Steward, and for the first time coming up against a fighter who was bigger than him, Klitschko was out to prove the to everyone there is a reason he is the number one heavyweight in world Boxing.
He went straight to work from the opening bell and worked the jab like only he can, keeping Wach at distance and moving around the ring with ease. The only time Wach looked that he was going to cause any damage was in round 5 when he rocked Klitschko with an over the top right hand that left him rocking on the ropes.
The more the fight went on the more it looked as if Klitschko was going to put an end to the fight and KO Wach. The KO punch never came but the final bell did, along with the announcement of Klitschko's UD win.
The question remains where does he go from here, the list of names that are available right now leaves nothing to get excited about, but the new batch of U.S and British fighters are climbing their way up the heavyweight ladder and will be knocking the Klitschko door very soon.
