Tyson Fury goes into his world title challenge for the undisputed heavyweight championship against Wladimir Klitschko in October brimming with confidence and full of self belief, convinced that his sheer size and skill-set will present the long dominant champion with a set of unique challenges that will ultimately be enough to see him through to victory.
Speaking to iFLtv his trainer and Uncle, Peter Fury, has said that while Tyson is indeed fearless going in against Wladimir, it is up to him to assess things realistically and come up with the right strategy for his nephew to win the fight, something no other man has managed in over 11 years.

Tyson Fury is being naturally cautious going into his world heavyweight challenge to undisputed champion Wladimir Klitschko. The fight is due to take place in Dusseldorf, Germany on October 24th, yet Fury isn’t going to believe it until he actually sees the champion in the opposite corner.
Talking to iFLtv and evidently referencing David Haye, who twice signed – and twice pulled out – of fighting the Manchester born fighter, Fury said;
“When you’re three months away from a fight, these idiot’s they automatically get injuries don’t they? When things aren’t going right for them in training camp they pull out. Continue reading
Long time lineal heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko thinks it is going to be a case of “been there, done that” when he fights giant 6ft 9″ challenger Tyson Fury in Germany on October 24th, comparing his loquacious challenger’s antics to that of David Haye, who famously taunted the brothers numerous times in the lead up to his 2011 loss to Wladimir.
Haye more than came up short that night and failed to back up his pre-fight boasts, blaming his lackluster performance on a broken toe, yet Wladimir feels Haye came out the other side a ‘better person’, having learned a valuable lesson in humility, and Dr.Steelhammer today said to iFLtv that he expects this fight to play out much the same way.

6ft 9″ Fury was in confident mood when addressing the assembled media, insisting that he will present a challenge the long reigning champion is yet to see, referring to the Ukrainian as ‘boring’. Continue reading

Once, more top heavy than Alice Eve, the heavyweight division is starting to develop some depth of talent that has also awakened an interest in the glamour division long bereft of such. Seemingly forever dominated by the name Klitschko, whether it be Vitali or Wladimir, there are new names and personalities appearing amongst the giants that don’t remind us of a robot manufacturer. One island nation known for their infatuation with the division, is leading the way developing excitement and talent north of 14 stone. By now you know I’m talking about the braggadocios Brits.
With the news of verbal sparring partners Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte agreeing to fight later this year, coupled with Tyson Fury battling the aforementioned Wladimir Klitschko for the heavyweight crown; it gives credence to the sentiment that the future and the present state of the division could fly under the Union Jack.

Fight fans won’t have to cast their minds too far back to Hamburg, Germany – July 2011 and the now infamous “Toe-Gate” saga that engulfed David Haye’s failure to back up his promises and dethrone Wladimir Klitschko. All the distasteful pre-fight talk and T-shirts depicting the severed heads of the two fighting brothers all amounted to a dodgy toe and an underwhelming performance in the end.
Since that night, the dominant champion has marched on ahead with his career and scalped a further 8 opponents, stopping or knocking out 5 of them – and ahead of his latest challenger, giant Brit Tyson Fury – whom he fights in October – Klitschko has spoken to ESPN to say he suspects the Brit fighter is going to be just like his countryman – all mouth.
