Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko has defended his WBA, IBF and WBO world heavyweight titles with victory over Russian opponent Alexander Povetkin.

All three judges scored the fight 119-104 in Klitschko’s favour.

Klitschko established his dominance early on and put Povetkin down three times in the seventh round.

Although Povetkin was unbeaten going into the fight, Klitschko’s victory never looked in doubt.

So far in his second spell as champion, Klitschko has made 15 defences and won 61 out of 64 professional fights.
