Wladimir Klitschko: I am happy that I defended my titles. It was a pretty tough job for me which I was expecting. It was hard to find the right timing against Thompson, it was hard to hit him. I want to thank all the fans in the arena and worldwide.
Tony Thompson: I am disappointed that I lost against Wladimir for the second time.
Klitschko is expected to return to the ring in December.
