Wladimir Klitschko - unified heavyweight champion

Today (February 23, 2008), Wladimir Klitschko defeated WBO heavyweight champion Sultan Ibragimov at Madison Square Garden in New York City to win the undisputed heavyweight championship.

The fight was fully under the control of Wladimir. He did not finish it with knock-out, but showed total "ownership" of the ring.

The Klitschko-Ibragimov fight was the first heavyweight unification since Holyfield-Lewis in 1999.


The Klitschko brothers are not just good boxers, punchers, real fighters. They are probably the most intelligent boxers of all times and all around the world. They never "black mouth", they respect their rivals, they respect people. And they are respected as well.

I am very proud of Wladimir who is a good sample of intelligence, strength, respect.
