Wladimir Klitschko Movie Rating: 4 / 5
Tyson Fury might not have fought for almost ten months but that didn’t stop him from extending his unbeaten streak to a staggering 22-0 with a win over Joel Abbell. Fury was scheduled to take on David Haye twice with the former world Heavyweight champion withdrawing on both occasions, leaving the young Heavyweight without an opponent.
Speaking of his win, Fury mentioned that it was brilliant to be back inside the ring and he is looking forward to being back in action again in April. And now, Fury has laid down the gauntlet by asking for a fight against the reigning world Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko.
Fury stated that he wants a fight against the younger of the two Klitschko brothers, who Fury says is avoiding him.
And the Englishman already has an advantage over his Ukrainian opponent after apparently outlasting him inside the sauna. Fury recently visited the training camp of Wladimir Klitschko is Austria and outlasted the champion, who is known as the sauna king in his camp.
Fury mentioned that he doesn’t like saunas, and it was the hottest thing he had ever been in but the fact that he outlasted his mate inside that furnace already gives him a psychological edge over him.
The Englishman went on to add that most people usually stay inside the sauna for around 25 minutes. But Wladimir Klitschko regularly manages over that but during their time inside the sauna together; he walked straight out of the sauna and went into his room.
Tyson Fury stated that when he came out, he was all dizzy and the people nearby began asking him what he told the big man and he was dumbfounded completely. And he stated that he has already beaten Wladimir in competition and has an edge over him too.
Boxing has been going through a phase for much of the last decade where no fighter has been able to take the Heavyweight division by the scruff of the neck and it has been seen that no fighter since Lennox Lewis in 2000 has been the unified Heavyweight champion, holding all the major Heavyweight titles at the same time.
But now, Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko is trying to change that statistic.
The younger of the two Klitschko brothers has announced that he is targeting to become the first fighter to become the undisputed Heavyweight champion of the world in over a decade as he sets his sights on fighting for the World Boxing Council or the WBC Heavyweight Championship title which was recently vacated by his older brother Vitali Klitschko.
Lewis was the last boxer to hold all major Heavyweight belts at the same time when he managed to achieve the feat in 2000 and with Wladimir Klitschko and his brother Vitali holding the five titles between them, there was no chance of them becoming the undisputed champion as they were not in favor of fighting against each other.
Vitali vacated his title last week as he seeks to continue his political career in his country Ukraine and the WBC has already announced him as the ‘champion emeritus’ meaning he will be able to fight for the title whenever he decided to return to the ring and fight for the title.
And in the intervening period, Wladimir Klitschko will be going all guns blazing to add the fifth world crown to the four titles he holds already. The Ukrainian legend stated that it would be great to bring the WBC Heavyweight Championship belt into the Klitschko family and mentioned that he will do all he can to ensure that happens.
