Vitali Klitschko (now 39-2, 37 KO's) won a 12 round blowout over undeserving challenger, the pathetic Kevin Johnson. The fight was dull as Johnson was adamant on fighting off the ropes, somehow thinking he would win rounds based on defense. Sorry, Willie Pep you are not. Johnson would get hit over and over with jabs and right hands to the head, continuously in every single round as he leaned against the ropes for half the fight. The other half Johnson spent bent over with his head by Klitschko's waist. Who knows what other ulterior motive he had by doing this other than to avoid getting hit, but one can only imagine.

Johnson would throw one to two jabs at a time only, averaging about 5 jabs per round. And that was it, with the exception of a counter right hand every other round. Johnson nodded his head to Klitschko often, even smiling and making faces along with remarks, as if he was actually accomplishing something. I guess if you consider he is only the second opponent Klitschko has beat that didn't end up with a knockout loss on his record, then way to go Johnson.

Final scores were 120-108, 120-108 and an odd 119-109. What single round could Johnson have possibly won? That's about as bad of scoring as giving Martinez only one round in the Williams fight. No, seriously.

Johnson falls to 22-1-1 with 9 KO's.
