First, he defeated DaVarryl Williamson by technical decision. He then knocked out undefeated Cuban contender Eliseo Castillo.

Though Peter scored three knockdowns two in round 5, one in round 10 Klitschko withstood the Nigerian's power and went on to outbox Peter for the majority of the rounds.

Referee Wayne Kelly stopped the fight in the seventh round after a knockdown. Byrd beat the count, but his face was battered and bloody, and the fight was waved off.

Klitschko then defeated mandatory challenger Ray Austin on 10 March , at the SAP Arena in Mannheim, Germany by a second-round knockout with four consecutive left hooks to Austin's head.

Klitschko then avenged one of his previous losses as he defeated Lamon Brewster on 7 July , in Cologne, Germany.

Brewster's corner asked the referee to stop the fight at the end of the sixth round. It was later revealed that Klitschko fought most of the fight with a broken middle finger on his left hand.

The Klitschko-Ibragimov fight was the first heavyweight unification since Holyfield-Lewis in The unification clash with Ibragimov proved to be a huge disappointment for fans.

Klitschko was very dominant from the first bell. He backed Ibragimov into a corner and proceeded to push down Ibragimov's glove with his left hand so he could not throw a punch.

Though Klitschko won every single round, the crowd in New York City began booing after the second round. The boos and jeers increased as the fight progressed in the same fashion.

Ibragimov's corner was almost silent from the sixth round onwards, unable to give their man any meaningful advice. Klitschko did not fight again in the United States until where he defeated Bryant Jennings.

Chagaev recovered but was dominated thereafter. On 9 December , Klitschko's management group, K2 Promotions confirmed that a bout with Eddie Chambers has been agreed to take place in Germany on 20 March This mandatory title defense, originally scheduled for December had to be delayed due to a hand injury that Klitschko sustained in training that required surgery.

Klitschko defeated Chambers by knockout five seconds before the end of the final round. He was criticized between rounds by his trainer Emanuel Steward for not fighting aggressively enough and began punching more often during the final round than he had done before which eventually led to his left hook hitting Chambers to the forehead.

The punch made Chambers fall forwards and lost consciousness for an extended period of time. The referee stepped in and called an end to the contest instantly.

Following the match with Chambers, a unification fight between Klitschko and David Haye , who, as of May , had held the WBA title, appeared to be in the offing.

Klitschko called out the Briton on YouTube in April , stating, "I want to send this message to boxing fans and directly to David Haye.

David, you've bitched out on fighting both Klitschko brothers twice already and now's the time to make it happen. On behalf of the boxing fans around the world, I am officially calling you out to fight me.

You can't run away from me forever and you need to follow through with this fight if you want to be respected.

What're you waiting for? Haye's trainer, Adam Booth, indicated that Haye would be willing to accept the challenge.

After four rounds, the fight became one-sided in Klitschko's favour. Peter's right eye was closing and he was taking heavy punishment.

After the ninth round, Peter's trainer Abel Sanchez said he would give him one more round. Peter swung wildly in the tenth and Klitschko put him down with a concussive combination.

Referee Robert Byrd did not start a count and waved the fight off, awarding Klitschko the win by knockout. Klitschko, however, was set to fight Dereck Chisora on 11 December, but the fight was later called off on 8 December due to Klitschko tearing a muscle in his abdomen.

The fight took place in October , Klitschko's third undefeated consecutive opponent. The bout was marred with over clinches, most initiated by Klitschko, followed by several repeated roughhouse tactics throughout the match.

This included Klitschko's leaning on his opponent and pushing his head down and throwing Povetkin away to prevent Povetkin from clinching, which resulted in the referee scoring some of Povetkin's fallings as knockdowns, as well as Povetkin's punching after referee's break command and leaning his head too low.

Kubrat Pulev on 8 May and given 30 days negotiation period. The IBF accepted the request. A new date of 15 November was set.

Klitschko and Fury showed little offence during the 12 rounds, but Fury did enough to take the decision. In the post-fight interview, an emotional Fury said, "This is a dream come true.

We worked so hard for this. It's hard to come to foreign countries and get decisions. It just means so much to me to come here and get the decision.

And thanks very much for having me. It was all fun and games during the buildup. He said, "Tyson was the faster and better man tonight.

I felt quite comfortable in the first six rounds, but I was astonished that Tyson was so fast in the second half as well. I couldn't throw my right hand because the advantage was the longer distance he had.

Klitschko was entitled to a rematch with Fury as part of the contract for their first fight. The rematch was eventually announced on 8 April and set to take place in Fury's home town at Manchester Arena in Manchester , England on 9 July He apologised to his fans and confirmed the fight would be rescheduled for a later date.

On 23 September, Fury again postponed the fight after being declared "medically unfit", [] before eventually vacating the WBA "Super", WBO and IBO titles, citing problems with depression after testing positive for cocaine.

Days after the Fury rematch was called off, Klitschko was approached by Eddie Hearn , promoter of IBF champion Anthony Joshua , to fight on the 28 November date they had set for a second defence.

Klitschko then turned his attention to fighting Browne instead on 10 December, a date his team had an arena set for in Germany. Talks between the Klitschko camp and Hearn remained active with a fight set for the first part of Because of this clashing with the WBA enforcing their mandatory, it was believed that either Joshua or Klitschko would have to vacate a title.

He put a request in for 5, more tickets to be made available. Joshua came in heavier at pounds. In front of a post-war record crowd of 90, in attendance, Joshua won by TKO in a high-drama war that saw both men giving their all.

They fought a close and cautious first four rounds. In the fifth, Joshua came out roaring and barraged Klitschko to the canvas. An angry Klitschko rose up and dominated Joshua for the remainder of the round, before landing a clean right hand and scoring his own knockdown in round 6.

The next few rounds were again cautious, both men wary of each other, until a reinvigorated Joshua attacked Klitschko in round 11 with an upper-cut blow to the right side of Klitschko's face which would be the beginning of the end for the Ukrainian.

Joshua then put together a few small but powerful combinations which sent his opponent to the canvas. Klitschko again rose but Joshua knocked him down for a second time in the round by unleashing a devastating combination of 7 punches flooring Klitschko with his deadly left hook.

Moments later Joshua tried to end the fight by swinging a few right hooks and managed to back Klitschko in to the ropes where he again sent a barrage of punches with no reply.

The referee then concluded that Klitschko had taken enough punishment and stopped the fight. At the time of stoppage, Joshua was ahead on two judges' scorecards 96—93 and 95—93, and the third judge had Klitschko ahead 95— I need to analyze and see what the heck happened.

I wish I could have raised my hands, but congrats to him. He got up, he fought back, and he won the titles. Big respect to Wladimir for challenging the young lions of the division.

From until , Vitali and Wladimir dominated heavyweight boxing, a period typically known as the " Klitschko Era " of the division.

Klitschko formally began his political career in when he placed second in the Kiev mayoral race. He was a leading figure in the — Euromaidan protests, and he announced his possible candidacy for the Ukrainian presidency but later withdrew and endorsed Petro Poroshenko.

Originally, Klitschko was an amateur kickboxer with a record of 34—2 with 22 knockouts. He was a kickboxing world champion six times four in professionals and two in amateurs.

As an amateur , Klitschko won the super-heavyweight championship at the first World Military Games in Italy in In the same year he won a silver medal at the World Championships in Berlin, Germany, where he was defeated by Russia's Alexei Lezin in the final.

In time, they became national celebrities in their adopted home country. He successfully defended the title twice. He defeated Ed Mahone by knockout in the third round and beat Obed Sullivan , who retired after the ninth round.

By April Vitali Klitschko was unbeaten and a rising star in the heavyweight division, having won all 27 of his contests by knockout. On 1 April, Klitschko had a third title defense against the American Chris Byrd , who was a late replacement.

Klitschko won most of the rounds and was heading towards a comprehensive points victory when he suffered a serious shoulder injury.

At the time of the stoppage, Klitschko had won 8 of 9 rounds on one judge's scorecard, and 7 of 9 on the two others.

Klitschko, who was later diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff , received much criticism for quitting the fight. The fight between Lewis and Klitschko was to take place in December , and Klitschko signed for a tune-up fight on 21 June as part of the undercard of Lewis' fight with Kirk Johnson for the IBO title, as the WBC would not sanction the fight for their title.

Johnson, however, pulled out of the fight due to injury and Klitschko, due to his being in training for a fight on the same day as Lewis, took the fight on short notice.

Immediately after he accepted, the WBC elected to sanction the fight as a title match and Lewis' The Ring title was also up for grabs in addition to his lineal title.

Klitschko, a 4—1 underdog, dominated the early going with many harder punches. He stunned Lewis in the second round with two hard rights, leaving a cut under on Lennox's left eye.

Klitschko was ahead on all three judges' scorecards 58—56 4 rounds to 2 at the time of the stoppage, but because the wound was a result of punches from Lewis, Lewis won by technical knockout.

Negotiations for a 6 December rematch began. In January , the WBC announced that it would strip Lewis of the belt if he let pass a 15 March deadline to sign for a rematch with Vitali.

For years after this fight, Klitschko would still occasionally call out Lewis, despite the fact that Lewis has been retired since early , for a rematch.

In January they notified Universum that they would not re-sign when their contracts expired in April. Universum sued the brothers, arguing that their recent injuries had triggered a clause binding them beyond April.

The suit was ultimately resolved in favor of the Klitschkos in November Klitschko was knocked down in round one by Sanders, but by using upper-body movement and accurate punching he broke down Sanders, forcing referee Jon Schorle to stop the bout.

Williams had become suddenly marketable from a KO over Mike Tyson in round 4. Klitschko scored a technical knockout against Williams in 8 rounds on 11 December , while wearing an orange cloth to show support for the Ukrainian presidential opposition movement.

After Vitali's retirement, his younger brother had established dominance in the division, winning two of the four world titles available.

At the time, there was interest in a potential Peter vs. Instead, Vitali took advantage of his champion emeritus status and secured a title challenge against Peter.

The fight was arranged on 11 October at O2 World, Berlin. It would be one of the most anticipated heavyweight fights in the past few years.

Both men had a rightful claim to being the champion and the stakes for the future of the heavyweight division were high. Despite some questioning Vitali's decision to return after four years, he managed to regain his title in dominating fashion.

Klitschko had Peter intimidated from the first round and stunned him with accurate hard punches. Klitschko kept the hard-punching Nigerian off with an effective left jab and took control in the center of the ring.

Over eight rounds, Klitschko completely dismantled and outfought the younger champion. After the eighth round, Peter slumped on his stool, shook his head and asked that the bout be stopped.

By the sixth round, Vitali was in total control. Arreola had been influenced by Samuel Peter's defeat to Klitschko in , in which Peter had tried to box from the outside.

He therefore employed a game-plan which involved applying constant pressure to Vitali in order to force him into a high tempo fight. Despite his best efforts, the bout became one sided very quickly.

Klitschko consistently proved himself faster, sharper and much fitter than Arreola. On 12 December, Vitali defeated Kevin Johnson by unanimous decision, winning almost every round.

Johnson, a skillful fighter, tried to negate Klitschko's strength with angles and head movement. Though he proved hard to hit, he failed to launch any sustained attack of his own.

After the Johnson bout, Klitschko's camp began negotiations for a potential fight with former WBA Champion Nikolai Valuev , but the match failed to materialize due to economic disagreements.

Sosnowski was knocked down by a right hand in the 10th round, prompting referee Jay Nady to immediately wave off the fight. Sosnowski was the No.

Klitschko completely dismantled his challenger with superior hand speed. Briggs struggled to land any meaningful punches, as Klitschko won every round decisively.

After a few rounds, Briggs was receiving a vicious and sustained beating which caused him serious facial injuries. Considering the beating he was receiving, there was some suggestion that the referee should have stopped the bout during the last few rounds.

Klitschko had retained his belt with official scores of —, —, and — During the post-fight interview, the American boxer Briggs said: Klitschko's next fight was against mandatory challenger Odlanier Solis.

The bout was tentatively scheduled for March The fight lasted less than one whole round, as a right hand to Solis's temple wobbled Solis, who then twisted his knee.

Klitschko won by KO. The referee stopped the bout after Adamek received punishing blows and was ruled out, as he was no longer able to defend himself.

After turning 41 on 19 July , Vitali became one of the oldest Heavyweight Champions in history. Despite having a four-year hiatus from the sport, Vitali has proven to be a remarkably effective and dominant Heavyweight Champion once again.

Alongside his brother Wladimir, he also fights on for their shared ambition of holding all four Heavyweight Championship belts together, an ambition that was realised on 2 July when brother Wladimir defeated David Haye to win the WBA Heavyweight Championship.

After Wladimir Klitschko had to cancel his fight with Jean-Marc Mormeck , it was thought that Vitali was likely to fight on 25 February The fight was fought against a backdrop of antagonism displayed by the contender Dereck Chisora at the weigh in.

Chisora slapped Klitschko across the face causing a red mark to be left. Vitali won the majority of the rounds boxing a disciplined fight with changing angles and superior footwork.

Chisora, constantly coming forward delivering punishing body shots, failed to wear down the older man. A doctor confirmed a ligament tear was suffered in his left shoulder.

Klitschko said he "suddenly lost strength in the left hand" and was forced to only use his right. The injury was believed to have happened in the second or third round.

Klitschko's trainer, Fritz Zdunek, believes this is the same kind of injury Vitali suffered in his fight with Byrd.

At the post-fight press conference, a brawl ensued between Haye and Chisora. After the altercation, Chisora challenged Haye to a fight in the ring and said, "I am going to shoot David Haye.

His comments and actions were later condemned by Frank Warren, his promoter, and Wladimir Klitschko. Klitschko was expected to face Bermane Stiverne in a mandatory title defense, but was forced to pull out due to injury.

On 15 December , Vitali Klitschko stepped back from boxing. He was announced champion emeritus, which means that if he wants to return to boxing, he can fight the WBC Heavyweight Champion without having any fights beforehand.

Since his retirement, he has maintained a low key level of training and has been in his brother's corner for most fights, most famously when he had an altercation with Anthony Joshua after Anthony Joshua vs.
