Steward Predicts Klitschko Stopping Thompson In 6

IBF/IBO/WBO Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko's trainer Emanuel Steward has predicted that the fight will end in Klitschko's favor in 6 rounds.

This is a quote from Steward recently:

"Wlaimdir is just too strong for Tony. He hits much harder and right now he's in excellent shape. But we still must not underestimate him. Tony's win over Luan (Krasniqi) gave him a lot of self confidence. Now he's back in Hamburg against another great name."

I also think Wladimir will be too strong for him. If Wladimir showcases his offense I don't see this one lasting more than 4. Thompson is not a bad all around fighter, but the only threat to Wladimir Klitschko isn't someone who is fairly good all around, but someone who can really punch and has that knockout power in either hand. Thompson doesn't have that kind of punching power in my opinion. However, Wladimir does, and Thompson's chin is going to get hit! Prediction: Wladimir KO by 4.
