Wladimir Klitschko proved he will never be loved by true boxing fans after his horrible and disgusting performance against Alexander Povetkin. Klitschko hugged, held, leaned and sloppy punched his way through the fight to win with a unanimous decision. After 12 rounds of what can mostly be deemed and described as illegal tactics from Wlad, all 3 judges scored this ugly fight 119-104.
This has to be one of the ugliest performances I have ever seen by any boxer at the elite level. If anything, this fight should have been ruled a DQ in favor of Povetkin.
Over 12 rounds,
Klitschko landed only 139 total punches and according to CompuBox, Wlad landed NO body punches.
The ref in this fight did terrible job.
That was by far the worst fight I have watched in years, and the blame rests on Wladimir (and the ref).
