Klitschko knocks out Austin in the second round

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Shocking news, no? Four and a half left hooks in the second round knocked out chump challenger Ray Austin, and Wladimir Klitschko improves to 48-3 with his 43rd knockout.

Klitschko never threw his right hand, and it was entirely clear from the bell that Ray Austin had zero business in the ring with Klitschko. The heavyweight division needs to get a decent fight, because this one proved nothing.

We now get prepared for next Saturday's showdown between Marco Antonio Barrera and Juan Manuel Marquez, and we'll have coverage all week long preparing for that fight, plus live coverage of the pay-per-view broadcast here at Bad Left Hook in one week's time.
