Dictating the fight from the third round onwards with his left jab landing at will, the champion had started to take McCline (263) apart by the seventh and in the tenth he finally stepped up the pace. Wobbling McCline with several lefts and rights, Klitschko (240) finally put him down with a big left and although the challenger made it to his feet and was saved by the bell his corner retired him at the end of the session.
