Klitschko vs Thompson Results: Wladimir Klitschko Defeats Tony Thompson Via TKO
Wladimir Klitschko retained all five of his heavyweight titles on Saturday, beating mandatory challenger Tony Thompson by sixth-round TKO.
Klitschko was dominant yet again, using his devastating power and beautiful technique to batter Thompson throughout. He controlled the entire fight, and after knocking Thompson down in the sixth, the referee stopped the fight, as the challenger was clearly unable to continue.
It was another boringly breathtaking performance from Klitschko, who hasn't been truly challenged in nearly a decade. His last loss was way back in 2004. Since then, he's rattled off 15 straight victories, annihilating any fighter who steps in front of him.
Thompson was often reluctant to do just that, as he resorted to timidly evading the massive Ukrainian. Klitschko kept moving forward, though, landing blow after blow before Thompson's mind and body finally failed him.
The 36-year-old Klitschko improved his record to 58-3 with 51 knockouts. Outside of his older brother Vitali—whom he refuses to fight—the younger Klitschko is clearly the best heavyweight of his generation.
He may even be one of the top-five heavyweights of all-time, but with the frustrating lack of competition, we'll never know just how great Klitschko is. All he can do is keep beating the fighters in front of him, but unfortunately for the fans, it's easy to see that the rest of the division is in shambles.
Maybe one day we will get the Klitschko vs. Klitschko bout we all crave. Until then, you will just have to appreciate the brothers' unparalleled greatness.
