Lamon Brewster KO5 Wladimir Klitschko

By Alex Pierpaoli
Nine years ago today Lamon Brewster stopped Wladimir Klitschko after five rounds in a see-saw heavyweight bout at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. Klitschko dominated most of the first three rounds save for a lunging Brewster jab to Wlad's chin in the third that drew some gasps from the crowd. In round four Klitschko roeally opened up with that canon-blast one-two up the middle that is his signature. Brewster went down first and though ruled a slip he looked stunned. Seconds later Klitschko blasted him with another straight right that flattened for an eight count.. Brewster survives the round and scores a tackle in the final seconds. What happens in the fifth is the last time Wladimir Klitschko has lost as a pro. And watching it again it really seems as though Klitschko should have been given the 60 seconds in the corner to try and compose himself. What do you think?
