Wladimir Klitschko won as anticipated on Saturday in Germany, taking out Alex Leapai in the fifth round of their scheduled 12-round heavyweight title fight, at least going the favorable route and finishing the mismatch rather than cruising along for the scheduled distance.
Here's a GIF of Klitschko (62-3, 52 KO) finishing the job, courtesy Zombie Prophet:
The 38-year-old Klitschko says he has 10 years left in the sport, as he seeks to break some records, but will there even be ten more years worth of challengers? We're already all the way down to the likes of Leapai, and though there are some interesting young names out there like Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, it seems like boxing's heavyweight prospects often implode before they can even manage their way there, giving fringe contenders all the opportunities to get blown out.
Are you looking forward to another potential decade of Klitschko wipeouts?
