Klitschko Defeats Adamek

About a half hour ago Vitali Klitschko finished a nearly flawless match in the 10th round against Tomasz Adamek.  Every round went to Klitschko, with a surprising slip in the 8th round that stirred interest only briefly.  The referee stepped in at 2 minutes 18 seconds into the 10th round after an extended period in which Adamek did not respond to punches landed by Klitschko.  The punch stats were as follows:

  • 38% landed by Klitschko, 30% by Adamek
  • about 600 thrown by Klitschko, about 300 thrown by Adamek

I don’t remember another fight where Michael Buffer, before announcing the results or anything else, asked the crowd to applaud the courage and heart of just one fighter–but I’m sure it’s happened.
