Tyson Fury to fight Wladimir Klitschko in October


Recommended Posts

British heavyweight Tyson Fury will fight Wladimir Klitschko for the Ukrainian's world heavyweight titles in Dusseldorf, Germany on October 24.

Fury, who is unbeaten in 24 fights, successfully defended his European heavyweight title in London in March.

Klitschko, 39, is WBA, IBF and WBO champion and has not lost for 11 years.

Fury, 26, said on Twitter he could not wait for what would be the "best fight in heavyweight history" and added he would knock out Klitschko.

The fight will be a record-breaking 28th heavyweight title bout for Klitschko and his 19th defence in his second reign as world champion.

Speaking after he beat Bryant Jennings in his last fight in April, he said he was "ready" for Fury.

The 6ft 9in Manchester fighter beat Romania's Christian Hammer in his most recent contest.

Lets see if he backs out again; he was practically set to fight Wladimir a couple of years ago, but he went for David Haye instead (which never happened, due to Haye's injuries). I'm just gonna say bye bye to his perfect record now to save time.

Looking forward to it. 

 

The Mayweather fight was rather disappointing.

I'll share one, too; nice recent KO from the next-best British heavyweight (who's unfortunately still fighting bums)...

Does Wladimir Klitschko have any following in the US at all? We know they don't, but if Boxing had any brains they would get this fight on CBS. When was the last time a heavyweight title match has been on network TV? Why Boxing is just letting MMA (which I prefer) continue to run them over is beyond me.

Because it will be a 12 round decision, with sound technical boxing, and therefore an even worse sale than a Floyd fight? Klitschko is the farthest thing from Mike Tyson there is.

Probaby but Boxing still should have a heavyweight title fight on network TV (it be free so no one will feel ripped off) sometime in the next decade...

For that you need an interesting champion to justify expending the air time. Maybe if Deontay Wilder starts fighting guys that matter...

He already lost to Vitali, and badly. He was mauled to bits. Wladimir would crush him over 12 rounds.

Shannon Briggs :rofl:

I think he has finally given up posting his videos, last year he would follow him around and even turned up when Wlad was having lunch at a restaurant

You haven't followed boxing in quite a while, right?

 

Basically, to fight for a belt and make money, you have to pay belt fees. Different organizations have no interest in unifying their belts, since that means less money rolling in. So it will NEVER happen. Some guy will just have 20 or 30 belts. Look at Floyd, he got one of his belts stripped because he didn't want to pay the fee. He's so famous (and near retirement) that it doesn't matter in the big picture, but most guys on "normal" shows need a belt to get the money rolling from CBS and HBO. So... alphabet soup organizations are here to stay, sadly.

wow.  i am suddenly WAY more interested in the fight! :woot:

 

since i am not a huge fan, i always though that klichko fights were super boring.   nice to see a tall man with same/bigger reach then him, promising to make it personal :)

 

i will be betting against klitcho, btw.      not much, but i definitely put some money down.

If I were you, I'd save your money. Fury won't win; he's all talk and no trousers.

Put it a lot better than I could. (Y) Anthony Joshua's in the same position, but unlike Fury, he's actually got the potential to be champion (plus, he's not an arrogant ######).

      Nintendo's "ARMS" has players engaging in intense boxing matches, coming in spring 2017
      by Usama Jawad

      At its Switch presentation yesterday, Nintendo announced a number of games for its upcoming hybrid console. These included Super Mario Odyssey, Sonic Mania, Fire Emblem Warriors, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and 1-2 Switch.

      The company also unveiled another boxing game called ARMS.



      ARMS appears to be inspired from the boxing mode in Wii Sports - that was launched back in 2006. It has a similar premise, that is, pitting players against each other or against the computer in an intense boxing match. Players can utilize a number of moves including jumping, punching, charged punches, sidestepping, and dodging, among others.

      All this can be done using the detached Joy-Con controllers that are held in a vertical thumbs-up position, so that the player can easily press various combinations of buttons to perform different combat moves. ARMS makes use of motion controls for in-game movement, that is required to dodge and move characters.

      Additionally, the characters in the game are colorful in appearance, very similar to the ones in Blizzard's Overwatch. These characters can be customized to the extent that players can wield their weapons of choice on each of their (virtual) hands. ARMS has both single player and multi-player game modes, however, the trailer does caution that you'll require additional accessories for the latter, which can be purchased separately. You can watch the trailer for the game below:

      Although ARMS doesn't have a firm release date, it is slated for a spring 2017 release on the Nintendo Switch.

      This fight is going to be one of the biggest fights of our time!
       
      I have been watching Floyd since 2007, when he fought and won against Oscar Dela Hoya.
       
      Who do you believe will win? Floyd or Pacquiao and why!
       
       
      I believe Floyd will win because of a couple of factors, first he was trained at a young age by his father who was a professional fighter at the time, thus having a huge advantage against most fighters including Pacquiao.
       
      Floyd also has a work ethic that consist of working harder and longer and I believe its because of this attitude he really will go beyond Pacquiao as he has done with all previous fighters.
       
      I am interested in hearing other perspectives on the fight.

      You pick your enemies carefully ? everyone knows that.
      But nobody seems to have told Charlie Zelenoff.
      The self-proclaimed "human cyborg" has spent the past couple of years taunting Deontay Wilder through social media.
      The reported verbal attacks even went as far as singling out Wilder's daughter who suffers from spina bifida.
      Wilder just so happens to be an undefeated heavyweight boxing champion and decided enough was enough.
      When Zelenoff accepted his offer of a fight, it didn't go as the "human cyborg" would have hoped.
