Are we ready for Wladimir Klitschko-Tyson Fury already? Most of us are. While Klitschko has a fight lined up this April with Bryant Jennings in New York, Tyson Fury is not willing to wait on the shelf and not be active.
Fury is the mandatory to Wladimir Klitschko’s WBO Heavyweight title. Last week he risked that mandatory when he took om Christian Hammer. Fury cruised and called out Klitschko after the fight. Fury feels the fight will happen before the end of the summer but wants to stay busy.
“I’ll take another fight if one is there, I am easy,” Fury told ESPN UK. “If I want to keep busy, I’ll keep busy but it really is up to my trainer Peter Fury to decide what’s next. “If he thinks another fight, we will have one, if not then we will go into a deep training camp.”
Fury feels he wasn’t at his best for Hammer because the motivation wasn’t there, and he may have underestimated his opponent as well.
“Let’s not make any mistakes here, Hammer ain’t no Klitschko,” Fury added. “To be honest I overlooked Christian Hammer the first time I heard his name mentioned. Although I trained hard and prepared properly I could not take that guy seriously because he’s number three it did not turn me on or tickle my fancy, it did not give me any butterflies to my stomach. I was in there with zero per cent nerves.The better dance partner I get, the better I dance, let’s see how high I can go.”
Should Fury’s next opponent not be Klitschko, he will risk his mandatory position again. Both camps want to make the fight and HBO’s Ken Hershman even traveled to England last week to get the ball rolling. So if things all break properly, we can expect Klitschko-Fury before the end of the summer.
