Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko scored a technical knockout of Hasim Rahman in the seventh round during boxing action Saturday night in Mannheim, Germany.

The fight drew a near-capacity crowd to Mannheim’s SAP Arena, which can hold 15,000, to see the title fight.

Boxing on the undercard was former heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe. The 41-year-old Bowe won a decision after eight rounds against unknown German boxer Gene Pukall.
