Former WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitcsko says he is feeling much younger as he prepares for his rematch bout with Tyson Fury who defeated him some months ago.


It would be recalled that the Ukrainian boxer lost his WBA heavyweight title to Fury back in 2015.

The veteran fighter who is reported to be quick to exercise his rematch clause with Fury told Sky Sport’s Ed Robinson, that losing to Fury in their previous bout has brought with it a feeling of liberation.

The fighter, who says he is enjoying his current position as a challenger, said: “I love it. I just feel younger. I feel better. Believe it or not, I’m enjoying the position I’m at right now. I’m relieved. I’m relaxed but alert.

“I want to show to myself and my fans that I can become a champion again and can solve that challenge positively with a positive end for me,” he added. Continue reading 'KLITSCHKO GETS A REMATCH WITH FURY'»

Deontay frankly admits that he prefers the younger lion Joshua win the fight, though, considering that a show-down between the two will make a heck of lots of green stuff. Wilder enjoys the idea of him matching a fighter like Joshua, whom will come to slug with him, given that he desires to trade shots with him and land a few right hands blow on his chin to see whether he remains standing.

Joshua hasn’t been hit with a significant shot ever since Dillian Whyte staggered him in the second round of their fight in 2015. If Joshua defeats the hapless Wladimir on April 29 without getting hit with something significant, then Wilder might be next if the IBF and WBA allow Joshua the to fight the 6’7” Deontay in a unification fight.

Wilder asserted this regarding his views on the Joshua vs. Wladimir fight on April 29 at the Wembley Stadium in London, England:

“With the Klitschko and Joshua bout, my heart is with Joshua, yet my mind is with Klitschko,” explained Wilder while discussing his thoughts on the Joshua-Klitschko fight. Continue reading 'WILDER: KLITSCHKO SHOULDN’T BE WRITTEN OFF'»
