Boxing: Klitschko still king

Vitali Klitschko retained his WBC heavyweight title with a 10th-round stoppage of Albert Sosnowski in Gelsenkirchen.

Sosnowski held his own until the ninth when he needed the bell to save him from a furious Klitschko onslaught. The Ukrainian ended the contest in the next round with a huge right that sent the Pole crashing to the canvas.

Klitschko said his next opponent is likely to be Britain's WBA heavyweight champion David Haye or Ruslan Chagaev.
