Wladimir Klitschko demolished Mariusz Wach to retain his collection of heavyweight titles in Hamburg on Saturday night. The WBO, IBF, IBO and WBA champion won by 120-107 on two cards and 119-109 on the third, a comprehensive win for the Ukrainian champion.

Almost 2 kg lighter and 4 cm shorter than Wach, Klitschko hit his opponent with everything but a knockout punch. He drove jab after jab into the 32-year-old Wach’s face and killed off scores of brain cells with the right but the Pole never looked like going down.Wach took a severe beating, how we never went down will never be know.

Klitschko demonstrated his sheer class on the night. How anybody can doubt this guys ability i don’t know. He is one of the greatest heavyweights of all time and would have matched up to any other from a different generation. His physical conditioning and skills are second to none.

Wach had won his previous seven fights inside the distance but suffered his first defeat as his record dropped to 27-1, including 15 knockouts. Klitschko improved to 59-3, with 51 knockouts.
