|‘Haye Falls short in his bid to topple Klitschko’|
David Haye failed in his bid to unify the heavyweight division, when he was outpointed over the distance by Wladimir Klitschko, who controlled the fight behind his jab and dominated the fight of the year at the SV Hamburg football stadium in Germany on a rainy Saturday night.
Haye v Klitschko fight video available here soon.
Terry Dunstan suffered a hurtful first-round knockout defeat to Ola Afolabi, when a big right hand caught Dunstan flush ending the 42-year old British veteran’s night early.
Dunstan had looked to use his jab in the first minute of the first round, but Afolabi soon got inside, closed the distance to land a combination of punches as Dunstan backed to the ropes.
Afolabi then unleashed a big overhand right which sent Dunstan crashing to the canvas on his back and out for the count as the referee quickly waved off the contest.
