It’s a fight we are going to see sooner rather than later – and with Wladimir Klitschko’s trainer James Ali Bashir expressing concerns earlier this week regarding the danger Tyson Fury presents the giant Ukrainian champion in the Autumn of his career, a tweet from Fury’s trainer and Uncle Peter Fury, last night summed up the belief that evidently exists in camp ahead of the fight – writing the following;
“You will see the best @Tyson_Fury ever. The world will awake to a new era in boxing & the new undisputed champion of the world!”
With Fury himself also taking to twitter last week to express his frustrations at the pace of the negotiations – and with the proposed date and location for the contest still up in the air – it would appear that the only certainty is that the 6ft 9″ self-professed “Gypsy Warrior” is ready to grab his chance on the big stage and is already training hard.
With Anthony Joshua, Joseph Parker and Tyson’s cousin Hughie making waves at the prospect end of the division – and guys like Lucas Browne, Alexander Povetkin, Kubrat Pulev, Bermane Stiverne and Vyacheslav Glazkov all there or there abouts – once you throw Deontay Wilder into the mix – you have a combustible mix of talent making waves in the division.
And the promise of some big future fights.
Is the heavyweight division about to get exciting once again?
