IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (57-3, 50 KOs) proved the pundits right as he demolished the much smaller former cruiserweight champion Jean-Marc Mormeck (36-5, 22 KOs) to get his 50th career knockout on Saturday night at the Esprit Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany. Klitschko dropped Mormeck with a right hand in round two and battered Mormeck the whole round. Round three was all Klitschko. The bout ended in round four when Klitschko dropped Mormeck again. Time was 1:12.

After the fight Wladimir named Tyson Fury (17-0, 12 KOs), David Price (12-0, 10 KOs), Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16 KOs), Seth Mitchell (24-0-1, 18 KOs) and Chris Arreola (35-2, 30 KOs) as possible future opponents.

In a battle for the vacant WBO interim cruiserweight belt, Ola Afolabi (19-2-3, 9 KOs) scored a fifth round TKO over Valery Brudov (39-4, 28 KOs). Afolabi dropped Brudov hard in rounds three and five. The bout was waved off at the end of the fifth by referee Geno Rodriguez to protect the game, but battered and bloody Brudov. If reigning WBO champion Marco Huck decides to stay at heavyweight (and a decision is due this week), Afolabi will become the full WBO champion.

Unbeaten heavyweight Alexander Ustinov (26-0, 20 KOs) scored a third round TKO over Kertson Manswell (22-5, 17 KOs).
