The World Boxing Council has named Vitaly Klitschko the greatest ever puncher in the world of boxing.
Klitschko´s record is now: 37 wins; 36 of them by knockout, with only two losses. And including his last win by KO, his percentage in this specialty went up to 97.2 %, a fact for which Klitschko is placed as the greatest puncher ever in the Heavyweight division.
“The World Boxing Council is very pleased with the extraordinary show of power and class that the WBC Heavyweight world champion offered. Klitschko proved that he is the best fighter in the world nowadays, pound for pound, after defeating Juan Carlos Gomez, who had a record of 35 knockouts in 44 wins and only 1 loss. Klitschko has outdone all other fighters, no matter what division they belong to,” the statement on the official WBC website said.
What’s more, Jose Sulaiman, WBC President, has recently dubbed Klitschko the pride of WBC as well as he is the pride of world boxing.
