Unbeaten heavyweight contender Tyson Fury was unimpressed with heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko’s dominant points win over Alexander Povetkin in Russia last night. The often outspoken British star took to his Twitter account after he’d watched Wladimir win a massively lopsided unanimous decision over a game but outgunned Povetkin and Fury had nothing good to say about the champ.
“I have just witnessed the sh*****t heavyweight championship of the world fight in history!!! A pair of stiff idiots hugging each other,” wrote Fury. “If Wladimir would ever take Tyson Fury I’d 100000000% KO him! I couldn’t even tell if Wladimir wanted to fight or get a b**w job. Any time any place anywhere I will KO you.!”
Fury has long since insisted he is the man to end the Klitschko reign of dominance and with the short list of sellable challengers left for “Dr. Steel Hammer” maybe Fury is as deserving of a shot as any other young heavyweight you care to mention – at least he perhaps will be if he can defeat David Haye in the re-scheduled all-British showdown now set for next February.
On that subject, Fury Tweeted: “Lawyers just confirmed Haye contract agreed and signed. No excuses for this tosser to pull out again.”
Who knows, maybe Wladimir will indeed agree to defend his collection of belts against the winner of the February 8th clash? The world ruler, unbeaten in nine long years, spoke last night about how he feels he can get even better and still improve. That’s a scary thought for any heavyweight out there, Fury included.
