(Reuters) – Ukraine’s Vitali Klitschko retained his WBC world heavyweight title by beating American Shannon Briggs on points Saturday.


The decision went unanimously in favor of the 39-year-old Klitschko after he dominated the fight against Briggs to defend his title for the fifth time.

The challenger looked in danger of going down on several occasions and was saved by the bell at the end of the seventh round when Klitschko had him on the ropes.

It was only the fifth time Klitschko had failed to knock out an opponent — he has now won 41 of 43 fights in his career, 38 of them by knockout.
