Tyson Fury has a big challenge on his hands come October 24th in Germany when he takes on the heavyweight champion of the world Wladimir Klitschko. Many are calling this fight, Klitschko’s biggest challenge in a long time. Fury has not only the size that Klitschko isn’t accustomed to, but he also has a skillset to come with the size.
Klitschko has two notable wins over Dereck Chisora and Steve Cunningham.
Never one to shy away from entertaining and trash talking, Fury took aim at Klitschko’s resume calling it weak and even saying that Klitschko’s best win was against David Haye.
“Klitschko’s best win was against a man called David Haye. I don’t know if you’ve heard of him, but we do know he’s a bottle job and he’s a Mr. Toe Breaker,” Fury told Sky Sports.
If you think Fury has an issue with Haye, you are right. Haye and Fury were supposed to tango in the ring twice with Haye pulling out because of an injury. Haye has not fought since knocking out Chisora in 2012. That bout was a year after he lost to Klitschko and went with the infamous toe excuse. That hasn’t stopped Fury from taking shots at both him and Klitschko.
“And if that’s the best win of his career so far then he’s in trouble because that man (Haye) wouldn’t even face me twice, never mind get in there and fight. So if that’s his greatest win – over a man of 6′ 9″ in who’s not really that good anyway, what’s he going to be like when he’s got a 6′ 9″ in Gypsy King in front of him?”
The bout between Klitschko and Fury will be shown live on Sky Sports and also in the United States on HBO in the afternoon.
