Bout Summary

5d3dc832-519b-4b66-b819-6fc93171ec5e.jpg

Klitschko came out with a stiff left jab, controlling the fight and knocking Rahman's head back. A right hand combination shook Rahman in the first round. In the second round, Klitschko had Rahman backed into the ropes and was launching off with his right hand and jabs. The pattern continued for the next few rounds. A combination sent Rahman down at the start of the sixth round and Rahman was able to beat the count. Klitschko went right after Rahman and backed him up against the ropes and punished him with a variety of punches. Klitschko rocked a defenseless Rahman on the ropes with a combination of punches in the seventh, prompting the referee to stop the fight. Klitschko appeared to win every round, as ex-champion Rahman landed only thirty punches the entire bout and was unable to mount an offense.
