    Wladimir Klitschko Beats Tough As Nails Mariusz Wach

    Wladimir Klitschko got it done in the main event which unfolded at the o2 Arena in Hamburg, and ran on EPIX, fighting for the first time without Manny Steward in his corner since 2004. Wlad showed the skill and strategy and composure honed in him by the Kronk sage in spades; the judges saw it 120-108, 120-108, 120-107 for the champ.
    Klitschko (58-3 entering; age 36; born in Ukraine, lives in LA mostly; 6-6 ) was 246.9 and Wach (27-0 entering; age 32; from Poland, lives in NJ; 6-7 1’2 inches) was 249.1.
    In the first, the IBF, WBA, WBO, IBO heavyweight champion Klitschko got cooking right out of the gate. His jab was peppy and the Pole didn’t like it. But Wach got his legs and some confidence a few rounds in, after he discovered his chin would hold up. He buzzed Wlad a bit in the fifth, but his O wasn’t there. One twos landed cleanly on him, but bless him, he kept standing. I gave Wlad 10-8 rounds in the seventh and eighth. But he pretty much figured out around round ten that it would be quite hard to stop Wach.
    Wlad led 121 to 25 in power punches landed. Wach did better, with his chin and heart standing out, than most any experts predicted.

    Couldn't get EPIX to work.

    Sounds like WK got in some good work.
    The bone density of Wach's chin looks heavy enough to break 2-by-4's.
    Personally I wouldn't even try to hit WM on the chin.
    Should be interesting to see later on Utube.

    Wlad was sharp, aggressive, pounded the left like never before, mixed with rights and even left hooks from early on, and gave his all trying to take Wach out. Wlad showed a mean streak, but Wach sported a Chuvalo-like chin and Balboa-like heart, if not much else. Wach took a terrible beating and had a hard time landing anything at all for most of the fight. He is tough enough to break some recognised names down, but also tough in the way that can ruin life when the fighting days are over.

    For all you Wlad haters out there, Wlad boxed like a nimble welter, and punched in numbers that would have made Diego Corrales proud. Wach is a chin freak. Punches would physically move him and shake him, and he would just keep coming forward. Doc put on a show in honor of Manny, and worked his *** off against a guy who wouldn't quit. Good show.
