Dr Steelhammer Dominates Dr Iron Chin

Wladimir Klitschko vs Mariusz Wach - WBA, WBO, IBF Heavyweight Title

Tonight in Hamburg Germany Wladimir Klitschko was made to go the distance in a World Heavyweight Title defence for only the 3rd time as he pounded out an unanimous 12 rounds points win against over-matched but Iron Chinned Mariusz Wach. Klitschko won 35 of the 36 rounds on the judges cards, this easily showed how dominant a performance this was from the long time champ.

This was Klitschko's first fight since the death of legendary trainer Manny Steward. It was also the first time in 6 foot 6 Klitschko fought an opponent that was bigger than him. Wach Born in Poland but now fighting out of New jersey USA stood a massive 6 foot 7 and a half inches. Could Wach use his height and reach advantage to cause the upset??. NO, Wladimir took control from the first bell as he fired jab after jab at the slower Wach followed by hard right hands that were Knocking the bigger man's head back. The fight continued the same way with Klitschko moving around the ring landing at will with his jab and right hand. The only problem was that Wach was still there taking shot after shot.

Near the end of the 5th round Wach landed a huge straight right that put Wladimir to the ropes. Wach went for the kill but Wladimir showed all his experience by easily tying Wach up and seeing out the round. The crowd and the watching millions then expected Wach to go after the champion in the 6th. It wasnt the case as Dr Steelhammer came out faster landing even more jabs and straight right hands. In the 8th round Wladimir gave Wach that much of a beating it looked like American Ref Eddie Cotton might stop the fight. Wladimir battered Wach that much in round 8 that many press and fans scored the round 10-8. On my fightscorecollector card i gave Klitschko the extra point.

The 9th was a slower paced round as Wladimir probably feeling the effects of his efforts was content to jab and land the occasional straight right. Its at this point that i think Wladimir realised that Wach was not going to be stopped. Rounds 11 and 12 were mirror images as Kitschko moving around the ring well for a big guy (247lbs) landed his favorite combination , the 1-2 time after time. Wach was now a punching bag, his work rate dropping round after round. Wach in the last 2 rounds must have thrown less than 10 punches. When the final bell rang there was no doubt who the winner was. Wladimir Klitschko will now look for a viable challenger whilst Wach will probably land more big fights due to his durability.

Below is my scorecard along with all the press and fan scores i was able to collect for this fight.
