Wladimir had difficulty with Brock at first in the fight, because of Brock's awkwardness and Wlad's inability to reach him. After 4 round Harold Lederman had it a tie at 38-38. However, starting in the fifth round Klitschko's jab became a factor and Brock became more fat-footed leaving him easier to hit. Klitschko suffered a cut over the left eye from an unintentional headbutt in the sixth round. Brock was knocked down in the seventh round, and although he barely beat the count, Referee Kelly concluded he was in no condition to continue.
