Default Wladimir Klitschko now holds the record for the longest reign in HW boxing history

. . . without being floored.

This is from the general forum section. Is the poster right?

Wladimir Klitschko now holds the record for the longest reign in heavyweight boxing history WITHOUT BEING FLOORED. Meaning he held the heavyweight title(s) for the longest time (in years) without being knocked down. Last time he was knocked down was 2005 against Sam Peter. Now is the end of 2012 and from the Chris Byrd fight in 2006 (which was a world title fight) until today, Wlad has held the heavyweight world championship for 6 1/2 years without being knocked down. This is WORLD RECORD.

And Wlad also set a record as far as consecutive (won) title fights without being knocked down are concerned: 14 times. (no other heavyweight champion in boxing history has ever won 14 straight title fights without being knocked down.)

No other heavyweight world champion has EVER accomplished this.
If anybody can prove me wrong, let me know. It is not gonna happen.
