I saw the klitchko fight over the weekend. After watching the first round I really didnt need to see the rest of the fight, it was obvious who was going to win. Klitchko is huge first of all, and he had a great strategy of keeping his jab out to create a nice distance for himself. Then if things started to get heated up he'd go into a hug so he could setup the jab again, worked perfect. One thing i noticed is that professional boxing is nothing like the rocky movies anymore, the refs have zero tolerance for any signs of gore or fatigue. The first rocky is one of my favorites, it should be really interesting to see where stalone takes the next one. If he makes it realistic, no way would a ref allow him to continue a fight with the kind of damage done in the other movies.
BTW i thought it was pretty cool to hear Byrd's family, specially his wife, cheer him on during the match. She was the loudest and wasnt yelling kill him or anything negative, she was giving boxing tips. Boxing feels more like a sport when hate isnt involved.
