Wladimir Klitschko vs. David Haye: Klitschko Retains Heavyweight Title

Wladimir Klitschko does it again. Behind his powerful jab and straight right hand Wladimir Klitschko won a unanimous decision against David Haye. 

I guess somebody forgot to tell David Haye that this fight was for the heavyweight championship of the world because he was looking for the referee to give him this fight.

Throughout the fight Haye was bull rushing into Klitschko and going to a knee looking for the referee to take a point away from Klitschko. At one point the referee did so but it wasn't enough. 

For all of the trash talking and promotion around this fight it definitely fell short of expectations.

"He was scared to fight me," Wladimir said in a post-fight interview and he was right. Haye only had a few flurries throughout the fight, trying to steal rounds but it wasn't working. Haye claimed that he broke his toe three weeks ago and said he couldn't push off of his right foot in the fight. 

KIitschko wasn't landing much either because of Haye's slick defense but that was about the only thing that was slick about the fight.

The most exciting thing about the fight were the ring entrances where Lennox Lewis accompanied David Haye and "Big" George Foreman accompanied Wladimir Klitschko.
