  • The Las Vegas Sun reported: "Those boos you heard during the latter half of the sixth round probably had more to do with the time that Wladimir Klitschko stopped Las Vegan Charles Shufford in Saturday night's heavyweight fight (2:55 of the sixth) at Mandalay Bay, than the performance of either fighter. The over-under round proposition was 5½ and sources said a lot of the big money was on the under."
