Wladimir Klitschko's Paw Opener KD: GIF Spotlight

In March of 2001, Wladimir Klitschko defended a then-lightly-regarded WBO heavyweight title against another very large man with a very large punch named Derrick Jefferson. Derrick, perhaps, was and is still best known for an unlikely heavyweight classic with Maurice Harris on HBO. I believe he was briefly a Ring-ranked contender. Unlike the way fans became used to Klitschko boxing, this one was just a short, brutal, kill or be killed, heavyweight action fight that wasted no time at all for either fighter.

Recently, Vasyl Lomachenko has been highlighted as pawing/batting down an opponent's guard to land his shot like this, although I don't recall seeing it followed by a dramatic flattening just yet. This is a beauty. Open him up, put him down. Boxing.
