The WBA/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 53 KOs) will defends his belts against England’s Tyson Fury on Oct. 24 in Germany. The fight will be televised in the U.S. on HBO. It’s the last bout of a three-fight deal Klitschko signed with HBO.
Fury is entering the ring undefeated standing at 6-foot-9 @ 260pounds and sports a 75% knockout ratio. This time Klitschko is the smaller fighter. Fury is coming off a win over Christian Hammer last February. The fight was stopped in the 8th round.
Wladimir Klitschko hasn’t lost since a 2004 and hold a knockout ratio of 79%. In his last fight against Bryant Jennings he won by UD with scores judge: Max DeLuca 118-109, Steve Weisfeld 116-111, Robin Taylor 116-111. Many thought Jennings gave Klitschko his toughest fight to date. Klitschko is currently 39 years old and had a hard time dominating Jennings. Maybe his age is starting to catch up?
Tyson Fury is known to fire up the media and opposition leading up to his fights. This should be a very entertaining pre-hype fight.
