American Lamon Brewster came off the canvas to
score a shock victory over Wladimir Klitschko in Saturday's WBO heavyweight title fight.
Referee Robert Byrd stopped the fight after the fifth round ended, ruling that Klitschko was unable to carry on.Klitschko dominated the opening four
rounds but was caught towards the end of the fifth with the decisive combination. As the bell sounded he stumbed into the centre of the ring and Byrd
decided he had to act.Klitschko's future is now in some doubt after he was knocked out for the second time in four fights.The Ukranian was sent to
hospital for a scan on advice of the doctor at ringside and reports suggest he may be set to retire from the sport.Corrie Sanders stopped him in
Germany last year and will fight his brother, Vitali, in a fortnight's time.
