    And people wonder why the heavyweight division is in shambles...

    Klitschko wins a unanimous twelve-round decision (119-110, 117-111 and 118-110) over Sultan Ibragimov to unify the IBF and WBO Heavyweight Titles.

    Klitschko jabbed and kept his distance throughout the fight. Going into the final rounds he was implored by his trainers to go for the knockout, but smart fighters aren't always exciting fighters, and he instead stuck to his gameplan and ground out the victory.
