Klitschko uploaded a video on his Twitter page earlier today, in which he stated the following:… Read Article

Lennox Lewis-Vitali Klitschko II.
The heavyweight rumble the world champion and the future WBC champion put on in June of 2003 was a savagely entertaining affair. The two giants traded hard, potentially knockout blows, for half a dozen fantastically entertaining rounds – only for a definitive conclusion to … Read Article
Tyson Fury today publicly confirmed the date of October 29th for his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko.

As fight fans will likely recall, heavyweight contender and former WBA champ David Haye twice pulled out of fighting Tyson Fury due to suffering an injury – a cut eye and then a shoulder injury that needed surgery – and Fury really put the boot in, claiming Haye was scared to face him. Now, in light of Fury’s ankle injury postponing his big rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, Haye could perhaps be forgiven for putting the … Read Article
On one hand, you can’t “win” this record unless you’re a great fighter, your odds of winning virtually ironclad.

Wladimir Klitschko’s main motivation going into his July 9 rematch with Tyson Fury seems to be Fury’s mouth, and his very real desire to close it with a gloved fist.
