Klitschko is known for his powerful punches and durable chin. With a 87.23% knockout percentage rate, he holds the second best knockout-to-fight ratio of any champion in heavyweight boxing history, after Rocky Marciano's 87.76% and currently the 8th longest reigning Heavyweight Champion of all time. He has never been knocked down in any professional boxing bout. His two losses have come via a shoulder injury during a fight and a deep cut above his eye, which were recorded as TKO losses. In both fights, however, he was leading on the scorecards. His power and his possession of a doctorate have led to his nickname, Dr. Ironfist.
He was awarded Germany's highest civilian award, the Federal Cross of Merit, for his varied accomplishments. On 27 February 2012, Ring Magazine rated Vitali as the number nine pound-for-pound boxer in the world.
