WBC World Heavyweight Championship

Wilder remains unbeaten, wants Tyson Fury next

Deontay Wilder was good enough in his WBC Heavyweight title defence against Poland’s Artur Szpilka. The challenger had a some good moments in the middle rounds but Wilder was always in control and ahead on the scorecards. With the fight looking like it was going the distance, Wilder finally got through with a clean shot in the ninth round to knockout Szpilka, who until then had given Wilder more of a contest than most had expected. With Tyson Fury, the WBA and WBO champion in attendance, there was plenty of huff and puff between those two afterwards. A fight that will surely happen assuming Fury gets past Vladimir Klitschko in their rematch later this year.

IBF World Heavyweight Championship

Martin claims title after 3rd round retirement

On the same bill the vacant IBF title was on the line between ST Louis fighter Charles Martin and the Ukrainian Vyachezlav Glazkov in a World Title match up that has baffled pundits for weeks. After a tame first round Martin took control in the second and had the Ukarainian in trouble in the third. The doctor was asked to have a look as Glazkov was struggling to move and the decreed he had suffered a knee injury meaning he could not continue, leaving Martin the champion. With David Haye having had his first comeback fight last night, Martin may be a target somewhere down the road for Haye who will see it as the most straight forward road back to a World Title. Martin will have much to do in order to be seen as a credible Champion going forward, but he has taken his opportunity on this occasion.
