IBF/WBO/IBO Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49 KOs) defeated England's David Haye (25-2, 23 KOs) by a one-sided, twelve-round unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Imtech Arena in Hamburg, Germany. With the victory, Klitschko captured Haye's WBA Super World Heavyweight title. Official scores were 117-109, 118-108, and 116-110.
Klitschko fought extremely well behind his left jab. Haye rarely caught Klitschko flush, and was unable to put together combinations. He used a lot of lateral movement, although he was too cautious, rarely mixing it up with the larger Klitschko. As the rounds progressed, Klitschko took control by backing up Haye with the jab, and subsequently, Klitschko started to find a home with his devastating right-hand shots in the later rounds.
