As the opening bell rang, Brewster went in aggressively throwing and looking to get on the inside and past Klistchko's reach. Wladimir had a solid round and working the jab and found success with the left hook. Klitschko was warned in Round 1 for pushing Brewster and it was an obvious strategy for Klitschko to drive Brewster backward in each clinch. In the 2nd, Wladimir continued to pump the jab at a high rate and landed a decent right hand in the final seconds of the round. Brewster had trouble getting past the jab and aside of a left hand had trouble mounting much offensively. In Round 3, Klitschko was warned for leaning on his opponent in clinches.
