Wladimir Klitschko Stops Alex Leapai In 5th Round
Klitschko did what he had to and that is to stop Leapai, Leapain will take home 4 and half rounds of sharing ring with the champ
Leapai was never gonna trouble Klitschko and that proved in less than 5 rounds he tried the best he could do but never got close to the champion, Wladimir on the other hand was as comfortable as it can get, against a short fighter who is totaly out of his league he looked good and stopped him in 5th round. Leapai will take away the payday and the honour of sharing ring with the World Champion.
After the fight Wlad was vocal about situation in Ukraine while his elder brother now a politician describe the performance as text book. Heavyweight boxing fans won be happy with what they saw, now in a couple of months time we have Tyson Fury vs Derech Chisora where the winner might get a chance for the world heavyweight championship title against Wlad.
This is getting very boring in the heavyweight division, how Klitschko can sell arena fighting noboys is beyond me. He is a great boxer, take nothing away from that but there are many better, younger and hungry fighters out there who should be in the running to fight him. His next fight will be probably against Pulev
Alex Leapai got his shot at the heavyweight world championship title after couple of impressive wins in his native australia. Though it won’t be wrong to say that he will be fighting against a boxer who is wy bove his class. An easy fight for the champions that Wlad is, Leapai do bring that punchers chance but Klitschko should have enough in his armoury to pick leapai apart in the first 5-6 rounds a knockout in the next 2 rounds.
The world heavyweight boxing championship title fight between Wladimir Klitschko vs Alex Leapai will be taking place on 26th April in Germany. On paper this is a mis-match but Leapai have the punchers chance but we can class it as a tuneup fight for Kltischko who will be fighting Kubrat Pulev later this year, assuming he gets past Leapai on 26th April bout.
