Tyson Fury vs Wladimir Klitschko. Who Will Win and When Is The Fight Happening

The Purse bid for Tyson Fury vs Wladimir Klitschko has been announced to occur in under 6o days. This for me is a very intriguing fight. Tyson Fury is not great, but he’s good at virtually everything. He can fight with multiple styles, he can box, he can try brawl. However he does have rather limited power. I previously expected Wladimir Klitschko to easily beat Fury, but after seeing Klitschko labour to a points win over Jennings I will outline why an upset is possible here.

Key Points:

    Tyson Fury is 3 inches taller than Wladimir. 
 Wladimir definitely has the power edge. Fury has been dropped several times in his career, with the first coming against Steve Cunningham, however he recovered quickly.
    Fury can make things uncomfortable on the inside. He is very good at leaning on his opponents and tiring them out. I expect this to become a rather rugged clinching marred bout, however it will remain close.
    I think Fury can win at least four rounds and avoid being knocked out as he will continually lean on Wladimir, even if he is hurt.
    Wlad does have the power to stop Fury, however I can’t see a stoppage in the fight. Fury definitely doesn’t have the power to stop Wlad.

For me this is possibly the most interesting Heavyweight bout over the last few years. Finally we are seeing contenders who are just as big as the champ, which will make the bout interesting. I think it could go either way, but an upset wouldn’t shock me. To see Wlad’s drawing power in the US, with those recent very impressive HBO ratings, shows the Heavyweight division can once again be the glamour division of our sport. Especially with the likes of Deontay Wilder, Joseph Parker and Anthony Joshua developing.
