Tyson Fury Vows: I’ll Give Klitschko a Worse Beating in Rematch!
By Edward Chaykovsky –
WBO/WBA/IBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (25-0, 18KOs) is planning to give Wladimir Klitschko a ‘beating’ when the two boxers face each other in the ring for a second time on October 29th in Manchester.
The fight had been scheduled for July 9th, and then pushed back after Fury suffered an injury in camp.
Fury shocked the entire sport last November in Germany, when he outboxed Klitschko to capture the heavyweight crown. It didn’t take long before Klitschko activated his contract clause for an immediate rematch.
Klitschko is no longer steaming that the IBF took away his world title only 10 days after stunning Klitschko. The belt was won by Charles Martin and then by Anthony Joshua. The belt was taken as Fury was unable to make a mandatory defense – due to legally binding rematch agreement with Klitschko.
“I didn’t feel anything when the IBF took the belt, as I’ve got 14 others to replace them. They robbed one off me because they couldn’t beat me, so they steal it. At least Dick Turpin wore a mask. But everyone knows who the champion is,” Fury told the Shields Gazette.
Fighters like Joshua and Deontay Wilder can wait. Fury says the only fighter on his radar right now is Klitschko and he intends to make this victory even more impressive and more dominant. Should he beat Klitschko, Fury will then set his sights on the two biggest options – Joshua and Wilder.
“I’m looking forward to the fight. It feels good to be honest. I gave him a beating the last time, and I’ll give him a better beating the next time, it’s money for old rope. We’re working towards the October date and I’m already in training,” Fury said. “I’ll fight anyone, There’s nobody really on my radar, Klitschko – I’d give him another beating, there’s plenty of fighters out there.”
