TYSON FURY VS WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO

WON PTS 12
NOVEMBER 28, 2015
ESPRIT ARENA, DUSSELDORF

After years of building into a finely-tuned fighting machine, Fury travelled to Germany and battled out-of-the-ring shenanigans as well as the giant Ukrainian champion for undisputed heavyweight honours. Rusty Klitschko had reigned supreme, with challengers of all shapes and sizes lining up to take his belts. None had succeeded, and where others failed Fury executed a perfect gameplan on the night.

Feinting, moving, refusing to present a stationary target, the talented traveller was mobile enough to make sure he never stood still for more than a few seconds. Consequently, heavy-handed Wlad was unable to plant his feet and pull the trigger on any of his lauded selection of big shots: the ramrod jab, solid left hook or his dependable finisher, the overhand right.

What should’ve been the start of a long and glorious reign for Tyson soon descended into farce, and near tragedy as the Wythenshawe man battled depression, PED accusations, promotional and training splits, excessive weight gain and a self-diagnosed media witch hunt that combined to keep him out of the ring for the guts of two-and-a-half years.
