Can the outspoken Fury perform as well as he can talk?
Wladimir Klitschko is the current undefeated Heavyweight Champion of the world who is well known in gambling news. Holding five titles, the WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO and Ring, he hasn’t lost a fight in 11 years. In his career, Klitschko has lost only three times. The Ukranian fighter is well-spoken, fluent in several languages and is the one of the few active sports figures who holds a Doctorate Degree.
• Klitschko will soon beat Joe Louis for the “most heavyweight title fights”
• Tyson said he wanted to rid the world of the current boring champion
• Klitschko has a stronger record for knockouts
Tyson Fury is the son of fighter “Gypsy” John Fury and was named after the legendary Mike Tyson. Fury is 26 years old and has amassed a record of 24 wins and 0 losses. Known for his brash remarks and “unfiltered” speech, Fury is an up and coming boxer who can switch between orthodox and lead leg stances. The current British and EBU heavyweight champion is from Manchester, England.
Tendulkar’s early beginnings
Wladamir Klitschko and Tyson Fury met in Dusseldorf just recently in order to discuss their championship title fight set for October. Klitschko, who is 39, is on pace to beat Joe Louis for the record of “most heavyweight title fights. Fury, who is known for his entertaining rhetoric, made the encounter interesting from the start. Unknown if it were his plan from the start, the fighter from Manchester was rather low key.
Once Klitschko mentioned the fight was not personal, Fury saw his opening and went in for a flurry. “You have about as much charisma as my underpants- zero, none. You go on-you’re a sports psychologist, you speak 37 different languages, so what? You’re still a robotic person. You’re still not exciting and fun to watch. I am the new blood in the division, you are an old man.”
After Klitschko asked Fury about fighting for the championship for the first time, Fury responded with a resounding goal. “It is my mission to rid boxing of you because you’re a boring man. You have as much charisma as my underpants. Fury did his best to undermine Klitschko’s numerous belts which he had with him at the press conference. “I don’t care about those. I don’t care about money. I don’t care about my legacy or going down in history. I just want to smash your old face.”
Fury comments on legacy would only continue amidst continuous attention the German press placed on Klitscho’s proximity to Joe Louis record. “Are you greater than Louis, Ali, Frazier, Holmes? I think not. You’ve just fought bums well selected for you by your management.” Fury claims that his “American style” fighting can surpass Klitschko. That may not be inaccurate since it is known in U.S. gambling news that two out of three of Klitschko’s losses were at the hand of American fighters. That could be just a consequence of fighting mostly Americans.
Lackluster Klitschko tries to praise Fury’s excitement
Klitschko, who is a sports psychologist, is well aware of the importance of showmanship and presentation in boxing. He is well versed in those like Ali who could build a higher gate by sensationalism. Unfortunately, he is incapable of performing such presentation himself. Klitschko did however point out Fury’s ability in this art. “Good. Now he’s being entertaining. That means the fight will be exciting. This is business.”
Klitschko, being the champion, was able to control the press conference with his reserved mannerisms as he answered questions without “stooping” to Fury’s level.In response to the constant jabs Fury made about Klitschko’s age, the Ukrainian replied “Sometimes a 26-year old boxer goes over the edge but this will be a big experience for him, boxing the world heavyweight champion in front of a 55,000 crowd.”
The champion went on to use his age as asset. “And I don’t have words to express my delight that he has to fight someone so old. Because with age comes wisdom. My fists will speak louder than his mouth.” Although there was talk from Fury regarding Klitschko’s boxing dominance as “boring”, his own record doesn’t reveal much more excitement. Out of Fury’s 25 fights, only three have been won by knockout. Looking back at the Ukrainian’s first 25 fights, Klitschko won 12 by knockout.
In addition, in Klitschko’s last 25 fights, 7 were won by knockout. Anthony Joshua, who fought in the Klitschko camp, gives Fury a rather good chance of winning. The Olympic gold medalist claims that if Klitschko maintains his style throughout the fight, then he could win with the TKO. In addition, Joshua said that if Fury’s emotional style dictates the fight, he could deliver Wladamir an early knockout. This would be a triumph in online gambling news in Germany where many of Klitschko’s bouts have occurred.
