Fury: Klitschko is scared!


Wladimir KlitschkoLONDON (17 JULY) Heavyweight prospect Hughie Lewis Fury says his latest training camp has been boosted by news of Tyson Fury’s world heavyweight title shot against Wladimir Klitschko and that he fully expects his cousin to bring the belts back to England when the pair meet on October 24 in Germany.

Twenty-year-old Hughie faces durable Brazilian veteran George Arias on July 25 at Derby Arena and admits he couldn’t be happier right now.

“It’s a good thing for the whole family that Tyson has finally got his shot,” he said. “I’m over the moon for him.

“It will be great to see him become the first fighter to beat Wladimir Klitschko in a long time. The Klitschkos have taken over the division and dominated for a number of years now. All respect to them, they’re very good men, but it’s about time Tyson took those belts. It will be nice for the Fury family to hold the titles instead.

“We’ve always believed Tyson would one day fight for the world heavyweight title and win it. We’re not in boxing just to win a few titles or for the money. We’re in it because we love the sport and we want to be the best. That’s why we train hard every single day.”

For the last four weeks, both Furys have been in the south of France preparing for their upcoming fights. In total, Hughie will have spent over eight weeks there by the time he steps through the ropes at Derby Arena.

Given this time spent in each other’s company, it’s fair to say Hughie, better than perhaps anyone, knows exactly what Tyson can produce behind closed doors.

“Tyson sometimes goes into fights just to entertain and put on a show,” he said. “Nobody has seen the real Tyson Fury yet. I think this fight with Klitschko will bring it out of him.

“I’ve seen it in Tyson, though. I’ve been there from the start with him. I know what he’s capable of doing.

“And the reason I know he beats Klitschko is that I know Tyson loves tall fighters. He loves them. Wladimir is in for a very big surprise. Stylistically, Tyson is his worst nightmare.

“Emanuel Steward, Wladimir Klitschko’s former trainer, said the same thing. He said the next heavyweight champion of the world is going to be Tyson Fury. I was at the camp with him – I heard him say it.”
