Wladimir Klitschko Tweets a short message to his fans, confirms Fury fight is still on

In truth, former heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko has not said too much about his November loss to Tyson Fury. Apart from stating, early on after the points defeat, that the loss had hurt him deeply and that he was “suffering,” Klitschko has been out of the public eye - so much so that some fans wondered aloud whether the near 40-year-old really wanted the contracted return bout.

The former IBF champ returns to action this Saturday, against James De La Rosa in Montreal, Canada. The fight will go out live on Fox Deportes.

Lemiuex, still only 27 and sporting a good 34-3(31) record, has bounced back from a stoppage loss before, when he returned to winning ways following a shock 7th-round upset defeat at the heavy hands of Marco Antonio Rubio (this 2011 loss followed by a points defeat to Joachim Alcine) and the big puncher told USA Today how he feels he can rise to the top once again. Not only does Lemieux believe he can become a two-time world champion, the skilled slugger thinks he can gain revenge over GGG – the man who gave him the most comprehensive defeat of his career.
