Wladimir Klitschko's decade of dominance comes to an end as Tyson Fury unseats him for the WBA, IBF and WBO Heavyweight titles in Germany. Despite both men offering little in the way of activity, Fury gets in Klitschko's face after the opening round and fights with his hands down or behind his back throughout the bout. He stuns Klitschko with a left hook in the ninth round and twice in the eleventh before Referee Tony Weeks docks the challenger a point for rabbit punching. Klitschko lands some big shots in the twelfth but is unable to put Fury away and loses a unanimous decision.

Prediction,

I believe that this is Tyson's time, Klitschko has been taking unworthy credit for a long time, and that stops on November the 28th, I think the pressure really is on both fighters, Klitschko has more to lose, but Tyson has been talking big as always, I believe Tyson is going to win this fight, I think Klitschko is going to be better for this fight than he's been in years, I think he may well retire after this fight, his retirement can't be very far away, Tyson Fury has been waiting for an opportunity like this for years, the fact that Fury took Christian Hammer 8 rounds just shows how bored he was, he was probably craving more genuine ring time, I'm sure he was more than capable of taking no punches from Hammer as he stops him inside one round, I think he has been very under challenged where opponents are concerned, he didn't just out class the best Dereck Chisora there has ever been, he broke Chisora's will to be a boxer, he made any genuine Chisora fan very, very sad, it was the most one sided fight I have ever seen that was expected to be close, people need to stop saying Fury has no chance after looking at how many titles he has won in comparison to Klitschko and how experienced Klitschko is blah, blah, blah, these are valid points, but they are coming in smaller numbers than points that favour the theory that Tyson wins, like physical attributes, and common opponents, people can say that Fury has never had a world title fight in his life but Klitschko has won and defended world titles many times, everyone has to start at some point, Tyson is a lot younger than Klitschko, Klitschko says 'big fight, is just business, nothing else just business', that is all the information I need to see that Klitschko does not have the toughness or the motivation to survive in there with Fury during those later rounds and that he is not a true warrior like Fury. As for how the fight will play out I believe the fight will go the distance, I think Klitschko will choose not to try to stop Tyson just so he doesn't get knocked out himself, I think Tyson Fury will get up off the deck to win a unanimous decision victory, I think the scorecards will be 116-111, 115-112 and 114-113, all in Fury's favour. I think Wladimir is physically stronger than Fury, and he carries more power, he is more experienced, he is very intelligent and very sensible, and I think he is an expert in making fights unfair on his opponent, I think he will be dirty, I think he will win rounds, I think he will push Tyson back, and I think he will put him on his back, he will break his rhythm at times, but I think Tyson is conclusively to good for Klitschko to defeat, I think the story of the fight will be that it was a pretty clear, maybe comfortable, maybe close, but defiantly impressive win from Tyson Fury, I think about 5% of the analysing pundits may say Klitschko won, but it will a rare and difficult case to make and nearly everyone will agree that Tyson Fury won the fight, I think the scorecards will range between tight ones and wide ones. I believe that the fight will start of close, tentative and tense, and it will liven up as it goes on, I think Tyson Fury is as tough as they come, but he is not made out of rock, and this is a fact along with the fact that Klitschko, can punch, and as we saw against Pulev, he has shown no signs of losing power, losing speed and agility, yes, but losing punching force and power, no, therefore if Klitschko catches Fury on the chin with a classic Dr Steel hammer left hook, then I believe he will go down, hard, and for the reason that Klitschko has the power to knock any human being unconcious, I am 90% certain that Fury will win rather than 99% certain like I am that Anthony Joshua will get rid of Dillian Whyte inside 3 rounds, but I am 97% certain that without Fury being absolutely wiped out to the point where he is physically unable to move (as effectively as being chained to the canvas) and taking serious, worrying damage to the brain from impact (forcing the referee to stop the fight) that he will win. I know Fury is a fairly heavy underdog for this fight, but I'm not swayed by that at all.

Since Fury has a 4 inch reach, 3 inch height', and 12 year youth advantage, I consider this a 50-50 fight. I have always been dissapointed in my wishes for Wlad fights. so I am prepared to be disappointed. lol

Champion97's picture

My analysis is nowhere near finished and I have so many more reasons.

I am not that impressed... lol jk. I am telling you, I always misread Wladimir fights, thinking they will be something that they end up not being.

Champion97's picture

I really hope Klitschko does not pull out again.

Klit is like a big russian white version of Mayweather. No punching power, very unlikable but at the same time he is very good and his legacy is set and fine. We can critisize him all we want but what for?

Champion97's picture

Interesting question, I criticise him because I don't like his approach to the sport. 'Klitschko has no punching power' hmm, I don't say this often, but LOL.

I get it, but I think it is a waste of your time because it just is what it is and he is among many. I told you about my wrestling backround, and I can say from some experience that combat sports champs are often dirty point fighting stalling and potentially boring guys. When you are out there competing the last thing on there mind is trying to please fans.

Champion97's picture

Good point, I fully understand that, that is why I have no problem with the way Mayweather fought, tough training camps require so much heart, they are brutal, and it all comes down to fight night, but I was not criticising him for not pleasing the fans and having this as his priority, I was criticising him for cheating in fights, because he does cheat.

Acerbitas's picture

Well Champ, I take my hat off for you. Fury won that fight pretty easily.

Champion97's picture

Thanks mate, good man, you are a great judge, you were right last week, new champ, new era.

Champion97's picture

These are all the reasons why I'm 95% sure Tyson Fury will beat Wladimir Klitschko when they fight on November 28, and also the reasons why I can understand the differing views of those who believe Klitschko will put a red L on Tyson's boxing record, that is if Klitschko doesn't pull out again, I do not buy his injury theory.

1. Height and reach - Wladimir Klitschko has been very dominant in his winning ways in the Heavyweight division for many years now, and he has not lost a fight for a very long time, but I believe this is partly due to him having convenient opponents rather than it being due to his own excellence, we know Klitschko likes to keep the fight on the outside, he likes to shove his jab in your face and keep you at bay with this weapon, he is often more than happy to spend whole fights doing this, but a big reason he has been able to do this so comfortably in the past is because most heavyweights who come along are 6'3 or 6'4, Wladimir is 6'6.5, and with a height advantage often comes a reach advantage, I have never seen Wladimir fight a man who is taller than him and who has longer arms, and Tyson is 6'9, he has a reach advantage as well, this is a very valuable attribute for Fury to have superiority to Klitschko with because the longer your arms are the more chance you have of being a naturally great outside fighter, Klitschko normally uses his reach advantage by nullifying his opponents with that long jab, and once this has happened, there is nothing his opponent can do about it, but he will lose the reach advantage in this fight, and this is a huge factor because of how important the crucial weapon of the usually longer reach is for Wladimir Klitschko.

2. Let's face it, Fury is tougher than Klitschko - I have seen Tyson Fury dropped before in fights, and dropped hard, and being flattened worked to his advantage every time, he is a natural warrior, I think he was born to be a boxer, his instinct is to give it everything in that ring, when Fury has been caught is when he is most dangerous, I think you have to knock him unconcious to stop him, he seems to not only stay calm when he has been hurt but use it to his advantage, I think this is because once he has been caught with the best punch his opponent can produce, he has been caught with the best punch his opponent can produce, and when Fury talks to them after getting up off the deck, letting them know "that was your best punch, I'm still here, and enjoying myself, what are you going to do now?", this makes his opponent lose confidence because when you can't out box your opponent, and your best punches don't bother them, you are in trouble, this is why Tyson has been able to use being knocked down in the past to his advantage, and both fighters know that Fury's opponent's shots will get weaker as the fight goes on if anything, I think being hurt is what motivates Fury, and when his opponents realise how incapable they are of bothering him they lose hope of a win, and he breaks them down, Wladimir Klitschko has been dropped eleven times as a professional boxer, to his credit he does rise up from the canvas, but based on what happened in the final 3 minutes in his fights with Haye and Povetkin, he becomes instinctively vulnerable when he is hurt in that ring, he is defensively successful not only because of education in the sport of boxing, but because fear kicks in, and his body responds in a way that keeps him well out of trouble, I'm not saying he is a coward, but he is not a trooper like Fury is, and when you have two giants in the ring for 36 scheduled minutes, somebody is getting rocked, and when you compare the two reactions of these two fighters when each are rocked, you see that Wladimir could be in real trouble come November the 28th, I think what may seal the fate of Wladimir Klitschko is landing a bomb on Fury and being unable to faze him, but when Fury lands clean, Klitschko will hold on for dear life and walk Fury backwards, and defence will become priority for Klitschko, and at this point in the fight, Tyson does not fear Wladimir, but Wladimir does fear Tyson greatly.

3. Outside fighter vs inside and outside fighter - It is well known that not only does Klitschko like to keep his fights long and on the outside, but he is not a strong inside fighter, and he refuses when he can, Tyson Fury proved against Chisora that not only can he fight on both the inside and outside, but he is an exceptional inside and outside boxer. If Tyson can dominate on the outside, then this can take the game away for Klitschko, it will frustrate him, and with Klitschko not being a good inside fighter, this will give him limited options when he is coming second best on the outside, and if he does try to fight on the inside then everyone knows he is in big trouble.

4. Range control - Tyson Fury has proved in the past (particularly against Johnson and Chisora) that he has great range control and he uses his long reach very well in fights, he is very good at measuring you up with the jab, and if you try to attack then he will stop you in your tracks with well timed, straight counter punches, Wladimir Klitschko on the other hand was exposed for having many weaknesses when he fought Kubrat Pulev, and poor range control is one of them, well, in comparison to Fury, I think that is why he holds so much in fights and tries to kill as much time as he possibly can, I noticed at the start of his fight with Pulev, he and Pulev were feinting at each other, and Kubrat snapped the head of Wladimir right back with a lovely jab to the head, and Klitschko responded by grabbing hold and walking him backwards, the referee had to break them up, Klitschko got caught because of his limited range control, and he struggled with Pulev throughout the fight, he won because Pulev acted like an idiot, he seemed to think Klitschko was a statue.

5. Dirty tactics that Klitschko will lose value of - A weapon Klitschko uses so often when he fights is holding his opponents and leaning on them, towering above them and putting all his weight on them, sometimes even wrestling them to the floor, he hits and leans, and hits and leans, these are not clean tactics, he often ends up losing a point, the referees are always far too lenient with him, I would have disqualified him by round 4 if I had been the the referee for his fight with Povetkin, if his tactic was hit and then get out of there (moving backwards) or hit and slip, or anything else that you can learn in the gym then I wouldn't have lost respect for him, but hitting and stopping your opponent from being successful with their response by closing the gap and leaning so far that your elbows stick into their back is cheating, I think it is cowardly and unsportsmanlike, This tactic is physically impossible, against a taller man, Wladimir would have to grab hold of Tyson and bend him over, and whilst Klitscko does this Fury has enough time to smack him, now this is going to be extremely difficult for Klitschko because both Haye and Povetkin were victims of the dirty tactics of Klitschko, and after he lost a point against both these fighters he became more aware, he was caught flush and hurt by both Haye and Povetkin, and Klitschko held in, but more importantly he was not relaxed or composed, this shows that when he does not feel very free to use hie unfair, dirty tactics, he is vulnerable, and he can not use these tactics against Fury, hold yes, use the same moves as he did against Povetkin no, this is another reason why Fury having the height advantage is very, very bad news for Klitschko.

6. The unpredictability of Tyson Fury - Tyson Fury is anything but one dimensional, he has shown many styles in the past, he is not the kind of fighter you can predict, sure you can study his boxing, but you never know whether train for an inside battler or an outside boxer, Fury can box on the front foot and the back foot. You never know what sort of attitude he will bring to the fight, it is very difficult to secure a realistically effective game plan against him, he talks a lot, and you can at home him fight, but his style in his next fight is always a mystery, this is unpredictably that we never saw from David Haye, Alexander Povetkin, Kubrat Pulev or Bryant Jennings, and Klitschko will struggle with his lack of farmiliarity with the way Fury is boxing when they are actually in the ring together.

7. The unusual attributes of Tyson Fury - Tyson Fury is a big, strong, dangerous Heavyweight, like many other Heavyweights, but what I find impressive is his hand speed, foot speed and agility, these are attributes that Heavyweights don't usually carry, he carries Heavyweight attributes, and Lightweight attributes, what other Heavyweight around today can truly have the same said for them, really?, Wladimir Klitschko carries the typical Heavyweight advantages, he is extremely physically strong, has a hard, forceful jab, and carries devastating punching power, but he is not quick, he isn't fast in his feet, he is not very agile, like many Heavyweights, but I think he will have a lot of trouble getting the better of exchanges when his typical Heavyweight attributes are matched with the Lightweight and Heavyweight attributes of Tyson Fury, it won't be something he is used to, Wladimir has never fought a man who is taller than him, has a longer reach, and is faster in more ways than one, I wonder how he will cope or rather if he will cope with this when he faced with new challenges that Fury brings into the ring, but no other of Klitschko's opponents have.

8. Psychological upper hand - It is clear that Tyson Fury knows how to rile his opponents and get under their skin, he got to David Haye, and it is clear he is getting to Wladimir Klitschko, the most telling piece of evidence was when Fury asked the reasonable question "if I beat you, would you wish me good luck for the rest of my career, and be gracious, or would you be bitter?", Klitschko refused to answer the question, it is perfectly normal for both fighters to know they're going to win, and losing is not an option, this is a good way of thinking because it stops boxers from slacking off, but at the end of the day, nobody deeply knows what happens, and a fighter who is not riled by their opponent and is secure in believing they are the better fighter would have no trouble simply explaining what their reaction to a defeat would be, three examples of great fighters who retired undefeated are Rocky Marciano, Joe Calzaghe and Floyd Mayweather Jr, if asked pre fight by one of their opponents "what would your reaction be if I put a loss on your CV?" then I'm sure they would say something like "I would take my hat off to you", but when asked, Klitschko insisted that he will not lose, I think this is because in his mind he wants to punish Fury, and he can't bring himself to even think about the theory that he is beaten by Tyson, this shows that he has mental vulnerabilities, during 'the gloves are off' when they faced off with Johnny Nelson between them, there were many other moments when you could see Fury has got him right where he wants him. One thing I find incredible is that Wladimir pulled out of the fight when it was scheduled 5 weeks earlier than the night is is scheduled for now, and Tyson Fury actually predicted the pull out 2 days prior to it, that is hilarious, I don't know what Klitschko thought he could achieve by stalling the fight and wasting the time of the fans, but I'm 99% sure there was no calf injury, and of there was then this is not the first time Wladimir has pulled out of a fight because of an injury, he pulled out of his fight with Chisora, Pulev, I think Haye, and at least one other, and then he pulls out of his scheduled 24 October against Fury, if these are genuine injuries then he needs to change his training methods in some way, because if you look after your body properly, then you do not get injured this often, but although the exact reason for Klitschko pulling out remains a mystery, he was most likely not injured, and he had some other reason for wanting to pull out, I believe there is something suspicious about how Fury always has opponents pull out of fights against him, Chisora pulled out at least once, Haye pulled out twice, and Klitschko has pulled out, he really knows how to rile his opponents, and put them off fighting him, I think he really got to Haye, I found it hilarious that when asked the question 'name me one of your previous opponents who I couldn't beat', Klitschko responded 'David Haye would have knocked you out', I think Fury hit the nail on the head when he said that if Klitschko's best opponent is a man who had to retire before facing Tyson and wasted ti,e by pulling out twice then Wladimir is is trouble, I find the theory that Haye would have beaten Klitschko hilarious, the height and reach, the chin vulnerability, the power of Fury, no way would Haye have beaten him, I think Klitschko's anger will boil over in that ring, and when a fighter is angry, he reckless, and that is how you get yourself what I call boomerang knockout.

9. Common opponents - A few years ago Wladimir Klitschko was scheduled to fight the then unbeaten Dereck Chisora, Klitschko pulled out of the fight with an alleged shoulder injury, Chisora then fought Fury for the British and Commonwealth Heavyweight titles, he lost to Fury over the course of 12 rounds, the decision was unanimous and also comfortable, neither boxer was in good shape, but Fury won the fight decisively, Chisora then went to Finland and got an absolute thievery official defeat handed to him by the judges when he fought Robert Helenius, Vitali Klitschko felt for him and was impressed by his performance, so he challenged him to a fight, since losing to Lennox Lewis in 2003 Vitali had beaten everybody in front of him, and stopped them all apart from Shannon Briggs, a man who was shut out, and brutalised in a one sided, brutal, boxing lesson, Chisora fought Klitschko and pushed him hard, not winning the fight but making it competitive, difficult for Vitali and in some opinions (mine included) fairly close, I gave him 4 rounds, he was still not in fantastic shape, he then went and got stopped in a great battle against David Haye at Upton Park, but after this he started to improve as a fighter, he got himself in great shape, he got 5 straight wins on the spin, he secured a rematch with an also rising Tyson Fury, long story short the rematch happened, it was a 50/50 fight in the eyes of many observers, Chisora was in the shape of his career, and was the best he had ever been, he was so confident, he even said it was going to be the easiest fight of his career, and Tyson Fury made him look like he had never boxed in his life, Chisora was pulled out by his corner after 10 humiliating rounds of being schooled, from start to finish it was all Fury, he boxed absolute rings around Chisora, Fury boxed sensationally, he couldn't miss, Chisora couldn't land, it was an easy fight to score, it was undoubtedly 100-90 for Fury, no case can be made for any other score, it was all Fury, he was beating Chisora up, and round after round Chisora seemed to be more and more sorry for himself, I'm certain that Chisora would have been stopped brutally in the next round had he not been pulled put, it is interesting to compare this Chisora (best Chisora) to the Chisora who fought Vitali Klitschko (the better of the two Klitschkos in my opinion) and comparing the magnitude of how heavy these two defeats are.

10. Punch variety - Wladimir Klitschko is always very successful with his 1,2, he has a very forceful jab and straight right hand, but this is just about all he ever uses, when he fights, he aims to use and is successful in using his long jab to keep his opponent at bay, and once they are nullified by this weapon, they realise they have to gamble, and that is usually all there is to it, and the rounds are quiet, Klitschko does use his left hook which is his steelhammer when he sees a good enough opening, but he takes few risks, he carries so much so much punching power, and as we saw against Pulev, he is very dangerous with the left hook, but Klitschko will settle for and be more than happy to make his opponent come second best in every round, and as we saw against Jennings, he does not mind about it not being emphatic, however he does not have many tricks up his sleeve, he has gotten away with this because his opponents have not been up to overcoming his basic dominance from his jab and right cross, but take this away from him and he is in trouble, against Dereck Chisora, Tyson Fury threw all kinds of punches, he threw every punch in the book, and to both the head and body, Fury is very unpredictable in the ring, and if you ask the question, what happens if you nullify that long jab of Klitschko? (Manageable if you have a longer reach), then obviously a good question is what on earth he can do about it, without is jab, his opponent is not kept at bay, and they can make it an inside fight, if you ask the question, what happens if you nullify the jab of Fury?, the answer is, not much, no problem, he can just tag you with that short right uppercut, or left uppercut, or left hook, he throws so many kinds of punches, and at different kinds of angles, he is never basic like Klitschko is.

11. One stance vs two stances - Wladimir Klitschko is usually very dominant when he fights, but always in one stance, I have never seen him switch to southpaw, Fury on the other hand, is always more than happy to box in an orthodox and the southpaw stance, he switches stance often, and having double the stances of your opponent means having double the throwable and therefore landable punches, I believe this will be yet another useful tool for Tyson Fury come November 28.

12. Angles - Klitschko is always successful with long, straight, forceful punches when he fights, but he always throws his jab at one angle, but when you watch Fury fight, you never know what angle he is going to sweep in the punches from, he is very good at finding openings, little gaps in your guard, and he can split your guard by getting underneath the guard with the uppercut, he can land the right hand over the top, he punches at many different angles, and this is a great tool to have in the ring, and I believe Klitschko will be unprepared punches for the awkward angles of Tyson Fury.

13. Lateral Movement - Klitschko is always boxes on the front foot, he takes a step back when he needs to, but I have never seen him box well on the back foot, he is one dimensional, he doesn't move well, he does one thing, and sticks to it for 12 rounds, but Fury has proved that he can box on the front foot, he can walk you down, but as he showed against Chisora, he can move on the back foot and make you chase him, and attempt attacks in a futile way, he is good at moving in circles around his opponent, he can change direction at the right times, he moves very well for a big guy, and he can move laterally well, something Klitschko can't do, I think Klitschko is dangerous if you stand toe to toe with him and rush in like Pulev and Povetkin did, but although he carries a lot of power, if you can't catch it, you can't hit it, and I think he will be unable to catch Tyson when he us us his far superior lateral movement, I think he will be well out of range, and if Klitschko gets frustrated, he will get desperate, and if he gets desperate, he will have to have a hard, physical fight, and we know that is not Wladimir's bread and butter.

I'm confident that Tyson will win, but there are people who know just as much about boxing (some of them a little or even a lot more) who beg to differ, here are any reasons I could think of that you would think Klitschko wins,

1. Physical strength - Tyson may be taller than Wladimir, but he is not bigger on the scales, and I'm pretty sure he is not as physically strong, and if you are pushed back by a pressuring opponent in that ring who is stronger than you, this is defiantly something that can break your rhythm, and if Tyson's rhythm is broken, then he will struggle to use his exceptional boxing skills and will have more trouble getting his shots off.

2. Punching power - I believe that although Tyson carries power in both hands, he does not punch as hard as Wladimir does, I think Klitschko has the edge in force and punching power, Tyson is human, and I'm a bit worried that he will get flattened, and the ref will just see demolition and panic, immediately stopping the fight, and prematurely stopping it without realising it until it's too late, also, this is Heavyweight boxing, anything can happen, Wladimir has more than a puncher's chance, and if he knocks Tyson out cold then he wins.

3. Experience - Wladimir Klitschko has been involved in so many world title fights, he has had double the professional boxing fights Tyson Fury has had, to have such a big experience advantage must work in your favour, boxers can learn so much in their fights.

That's it, I can think of 3 reasons why Wladimir could win, and 13 why Tyson could win, my final prediction is Tyson Fury by unanimous decision.

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES

I couldn't catch on time the fight but the last rounds, and it looked like a really dull fight. I won't bother scoring this, since it looks like Tyson's singing was the most exciting thing.

Wlad was a let down, but no surprises since Tyson's style and physique weren't suited for him.

Trust me, it was not dull, it wasn't action packed, but Fury beat Klitschko, that is all that needs to be said, Wladimir was poor in this fight because the now factually better boxer in Tyson Fury made him poor. No worries if you don't want to score the fight, but it's always good to get your view on a fight, I'd score it if I were you.

Fantastic performance from Tyson Fury!
I didn't think it would be this negative, but I thought Fury would beat Klitschko, mathematically, like this (116-111/115-112), I didn't think Fury would lose a point, I predicted him to suffer an early knockdown, get up off the deck to win, but I think my prediction was similar to what happened in the fight.

Klitschko seemed well prepared to me, he's always in shape, he'd been training hard, for a guy taller than him, with longer arms as well, but I think his own intelligence worked against him. Fury stayed switched on through the first 6 rounds, consistently, showing great reflexes, head movement, foot movement, making the window of opportunity which Klitschko usually finds, to let a shot go, unfindable.

Fury was sensible in doing just enough to clearly win the first 3 rounds, wasting nothing, not over committing, making Klitschko take a shot whenever the Ukrainian veteran did try to pull the trigger, for example, Fury landed 2 fantastic counter jabs in round 1, and in rounds 5 and 7, at least once, Fury made Klitschko miss, and backed him up whilst landing with a right hand in response. Klitschko used his experience well in this fight, he made Fury miss with the right hand when the Brit tried to be the aggressor, and Klitschko, in round 11, when he was hurt, on the receiving end of 2 big left hooks to the jaw, turned his back, took a point away from his opponent, but even had that not happened, he bought himself some seconds.

I think Klitschko resorted to trying to fight a little bit dirty, in round 8, going in with the head, but messing with a tough traveller/genuis boxer like Fury, big mistake, and we saw that, Fury, just dipping down that head, so Klitschko runs his own eye into Fury's forehead.

Shame there wasn't a rematch, especially seeing as Fury, nearly 2 years later, hasn't fought, wasted a lot of prime time, likely to end up an example of wasted talent, and Klitschko, more positively, losing to Anthony Joshua in a long, brutal, competitive, popular battle, before retiring at the age of 41.

Champ97,

There you go again,

This fight was dull as hell. A total of about 130 punches were landed. About 11 per round for BOTH GUYS. klit landed 3 decent right hands the entire fight. neither guy did a whole lot and it was not action packed. Nice win for Fury but the only thing that excited me was klit losing for the first time in over 11 years and the first time by decison

vock42,

There you go again,

You are as dull as hell, a total of about 10 ridiculous comments per WEEK, the only thing interesting you ever typed was the very comedic suggestion that Klitschko has no power. People like you who call tactical battles 'boring' don't understand how boxing works, boxing is an art, 'hit and don't get hit', two champions trying to nullify each other is NOT boring, and anyone who thinks it is, should not watch boxing. You're a bit of a doughnut aren't you.

Klitschko tried to take him out there in that last round, but if anyone was getting knocked out, it was going to be Klitschko, he didn't even finish on top. Great fight by Fury.
