The Victorious Klitschko!

Wladimir Klitschko dominated Haye in the big, hyped-up fight on Saturday. Haye’s talk was big, but unfortunately, he didn’t deliver. However, he was sure to inform us that it was due to a hurt toe. Quick recap / news bits on the fight:

  • Haye did a bunch of falling, and finally got penalized for it.
  • Of Klitschko’s last 9 fights, Haye is the second opponent to have heard the final bell – not exactly what Klitschko was hoping for.
  • Klitschko, the “boring” fighter (according to Haye), threw close to twice as many punches as Haye himself (Klitschko threw 509; 134 landed vs. Haye’s 290; 72 successful).
  • This is Wladimir Klitschko’s 14th straight win
  • The Klitschko brothers now hold all the major heavyweight title belts
  • Both fighters were on their guard, not wanting to be knocked out.

Mayweather will only fight Pac-Man only if there is random blood and urine testing, which Pacquiao’s team is currently unwilling to do. Of course, Mayweather must fact Ortiz first… and Ortiz declares there is only one problem with Mayweather’s plan to fight Pacquiao next, and that is that he will be Pacquiao’s next opponent!

Thailand’s boxers might miss the Olympics next year because of a election issue. The International Boxing Association (AIBA) expelled the Amateur Boxing Association of Thailand because they hadn’t called new elections by the end of June. The March elections had cause for concern over whether all was fair and right.

Way to go Mitchell!
