Wladimir Klitschko vs Alexander Povetkin full fight video hightlights

Wladimir Klitschko easily defeated Alexander Povetkin in Moscow on Saturday afternoon (Oct. 5, 2013), retaining his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO & The Ring Heavyweight titles.

Wladimir Klitschko put his three heavyweight titles on the line Saturday afternoon (Oct. 5, 2013) when he faced Alexander Povetkin in Moscow, Russia. The bout turned out to be a disappointment with Klitschko leaning on Povetkin whenever the Russian fighter tried to fight inside.

Klitschko is arguably one of the best heavyweight fighters of all time, with a title reign lasting for over seven years. He's dominated all opposition with an exceptional use of range and movement. He also hasn't been afraid to fight a bit dirty, should the need arise.

Povetkin won the gold medal at the 2004 Olympic games and is one of the best boxers to come out of Russia in years. He proved yesterday that he was able to take a heck of a shot and keep coming forward. Unfortunately, his chin was tested and he was dropped multiple times in the fight.
