The much bigger and seemingly stronger Klitschko ruled the night with a simple jab, walking down Ibragimov and controlling the action – or lack of it – as he calmly and calculatedly out pointing Ibragimov. Although overpowered by Klitschko, Ibragimov did showcase some sporadic aggression throwing out a looping left hand that caught leather and air for the most part.

Although pitching a shutout, Klitschko’s famed trainer Emanuel Steward was calling for Wladimir to knock out Sultan in the final few rounds, but to the dismay of the fight fans, it did not happen.

Klitschko easily established domination over Ibragimov winning the bout unanimously by scores of 119-110, 118-110 and 117-111. The victory not only earned Klitschko the WBO strap to add to his IBF/IBO collection of belts, but garnered his fiftieth win in his eleven year career.
