Top 10 biggest heavyweight fights in London

Sean Ellis lists 10 of the biggest heavyweight fights ever to occur in London

10 – Wladimir Klitschko w rsf 7 Monte Barrett (July 2000)

Featured on the undercard of Lennox Lewis v Frans Botha, Wladimir Klitschko decked Monte Barrett in the opening round of their scheduled ten, at the New London Arena. Klitschko wasn’t able to capitalise on this however until the fourth, when a combination put the American back on the floor. Barrett found his feet, regained stability and continued until the seventh. But the giant Ukrainian sent Barrett crashing to the canvas on three separate exchanges, leaving referee Richie Davis no option but to call a halt to proceedings.
