Tyson Fury defeated Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 and he lost the IBO / IBF / WBO / WBA Super Heavyweight World Championship titles. Nevertheless, he does not seem to be angry with the “Gypsy King”. He wants him to win the rematch against Wilder. Klitschko is a real sportsman who thinks what’s best about boxing. The legendary Ukrainian boxer says, it would good for the heavyweight division if Fury wins because he opens new opportunities, new “doors”. He is thinking here that it would be easier to arrange an unify fight Anthony Joshua with Fury than with Wilder. He wants to see if all four big titles in one hand.
Klitschko respects his former defender, Fury, and his former sparring partner Wilder, but wants Fury to win.
“Either Wilder is going to knock out Fury or Fury is going to win on points. Personally, I respect Wilder a lot – he was in my training camp, we spent rounds in the ring. He’s a great guy and a fantastic boxer. As many knockouts as he has, you’ve probably no one else, in current times, any heavyweights, including me. … I think, or I wish, that actually Fury, believe it or not, might make it. Maybe not, but I wish he’s going to. … But it could possibly be a good mix when, all of a sudden, Fury is going to win and a lot of different doors are going to open and excitement and things like that. But as I said, Wilder is going to win by knockout or Fury could win on points.” – Klitschko said to The National.
So the former heavyweight world champion, like many others, does not believe that Fury can knock Wilder out.
By the way, Wilder wants that Tyson Fury will be in the best shape possible on February 22 in Las Vegas. He doesn’t want to hear excuses from Fury after his defeat and promises he won’t make excuses either, but he won’t have to because he will win.
