Post Finance Arena in Berne, Switzerland was the site of yet another dominant Vitali Klitschko WBC heavyweight title defense tonight as the Ukrainian continues to solidify his hold on the division.
"Dr. Ironfist" stamped his authority from round one as previously unbeaten challenger Kevin Johnson proved unable to do anything but play defense aside from sporadic jabs.
The oncoming form of the 6 foot 7 inch Klitschko took away the ability of Johnson to compete as the American simply tried to survive amid hard shots coming from the champion.
And survive he did, only the second of Klitschko's 39 victims to do so, by never getting hit flush by the power-punching champion over the 12 rounds.
Klitschko improves to 39-2 (37), retaining the WBC title for the third time during his second reign while Johnson suffers his first loss to go to 22-1 (9).
Another 6 foot 7 heavyweight was on the bill as Alexander Ustinov, 19-0 (15), outpointed former world title challenger Monte Barrett, 34-9 (20), over 12 frames for the EBA title.
Ex-IBF cruiserweight title challenger Johnathon Banks, 23-1 (16), crushed chinny German banger Marcel Zeller, 22-6 (2), in one round at heavyweight.
