Wladimir Klitschko: It was a tough job for me. Alexander is a real fighter. I repeatedly hit him hard, but he showed great heart. I would have liked a KO, but I believe it was a deserved win. I think I can improve still.
Alexander Povetkin: Things didn’t quite go as well as I wanted, but I never give up. Of course, he was the better fighter. Wladimir is the best boxer in the world. It was a fair fight. I gave everything. I will try to train more.
