WBC heavyweight titlist Vitali Klitschko got into the middle of a political scuffle in Kiev, Ukraine, and was punched in the face in the process. Klitschko resisted the urge to take any swings at anyone.

From the AFP:

"I didn't hit anyone, I just tried to push a few people away," he told television channel 1+1 afterwards.

Klitschko, who last month successfully defended his WBC title, added that using his mighty strength "could have led to certain lawmakers being admitted to hospital."

Klitschko hitting anybody would have been massive news and probably knocked someone out cold, so it's a testament to his patience and self-control that he didn't do anything. Good for Vitali.

Klitschko returns to the ring in December against unbeaten American Kevin Johnson.
