Wladimir Klitschko won via unanimous points decision against Britain‘s David Haye in their world heavyweight title unification match last July 2, Saturday night in Hamburg, Germany as reported by various sports news sites, July 3, 2011.

The towering Ukrainian reportedly got the nod of the three ringside judges as he scored by a wide margin on all three score cards: 117-109, 118-108 and 116-110.

As noted, Klitschko retained his International Boxing Federation (IBF) and World Boxing Organization (WBO) titles while claiming Haye‘s World Boxing Association (WBA) crown after 12 rounds of boxing held at the Imtech Arena, Hamburg, Germany.

Apparently, the 35-year-old Klitschko improved his record to 56-3 while handing Haye his second defeat in his 27-fight career, most of it at cruiserweight before moving up in the heavyweight division in his last five fights.

It was further revealed that the victory puts the Klitschko brothers in the position of having all of the recognized world heavyweight titles, with Vitali holding the prestigious World Boxing Council (WBC) version.
