image for Top academic comes out the better man in boxing match
Once my boxing glove went into overdrive I think he knew that it was over - Hawking

Praise was being paid to top academic and author Professor Stephen Hawking last night after he brutally beat his opponent in a pro celebrity boxing match.

Professor Hawking's triumphant win has shunned the storm of criticism from people believing that he should not have been granted a boxing licence.

Boxing supremo, Don King however was unrepentant and insisted that the wheelchair bound physicist was in the best shape of his life. "What happened was better than any of us could have imagined but Stephen knew the risks" said the wacky barnetted promoter, "I was talking to him before the fight and he was full of confidence and in great spirits."

Since the World Boxing Federation relaxed it's strict medical rules in 2005, many eyebrows have been raised at apparently mis-matched bouts.

In September there was outrage as Lennox Lewis clubbed an obviously unfit Magnus Magnusson into submission in just three rounds and in November former 60's pop star, Freddie Garretty, was beaten into unconsciousness and lost a kidney after an exhibition bout with World Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko.

But now it looks like Hawking is starting to prove the Boxing Federation's stance on relaxed medical rules correct.

Hawking said of his opponent 'Iron' Mike Tyson, "Mike battled bravely till the end," he said, "but once my boxing glove went into overdrive I think he knew that it was over."
