The Klitschko snoozefest style boxing any longer has a hold on the top spot of Heavyweight boxing any longer as Tyson Fury defeated Wladimir Klitschko in Germany on Saturday afternoon.
Fairly boring fight as usual aside from a pretty wild 12 round where Wlad finally attempted to chase, it was a clear decision for Fury though. Best thing about it is that I was able to watch a live periscope feed of a Ukrainian broadcasting the fight from his mothers living room while I was at the gym on a treadmill in Millard, Nebraska. Myself and majority of the people in the chat room spent most of the time critiquing the home decor of this fine Ukrainian gent who was doing a thankless job for us. What a time to be alive.
After the win, Tyson Fury then showed off his pipes with a stirring rendition of Aerosmith’s “Don’t Want To Miss a Thing”
I’m hoping we can avoid a rematch with Wlad for the time being. I’d favor Wlad in the rematch to not be as inactive and boring.
Deontay Wilder(35-0) and Fury would be great, the promos leading up to it could sell huge in the United States, something Heavyweight boxing needs desperately.
Eventually the United Kingdom’s Anthony Joshua(14-0) is who I see on top of Heavyweight boxing. Dude is absolutely bodied up and looks like a Heavyweight Adonis Creed.
Likely Fury just gets some jobber next though, which is fine to pad the record and continue to build someone else up. Thanks to him for saving Heavyweight boxing for now. He may not be the best, but he’s whats best for business.
Minutes after publishing it was announced that Yyacheslav Glazkov will be the next man up. http://www.boxingscene.com/fury-vs-glazkov-head-straight-purse-bids–98818?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
