Fury Beats Klitschko Again

Klitschko looked listless in losing to Fury and it will be difficult for him to rediscover himself at such an advanced age…

Unless Wladimir Klitschko can pull a rabbit out of a hat, he’ll lose to Tyson Fury a second time when they fight on July 9th—at least that’s what former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye believes.

“We know what Tyson Fury has got and we thought we knew what Wladimir Klitschko had,” said Haye, according to Neil Fissler of Express. “And if the Wladimir Klitschko that turned up last time does again he loses. But if the Wladimir Klitschko who turned up five years ago turns up then he wins so it is solely down to what he has got left. Normally fighters who seem like they have lost it, have normally lost it, you cannot rewind the clock and once it goes it goes and that could be the situation with Wladimir.”

It’s hard to argue with Haye’s logic. Klitschko is 40 years old and Fury ended his 22-fight win streak with a clear unanimous-decision victory last October in Düsseldorf, Germany. Fury became the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champions with the win.

Fury has since been stripped of the IBF crown, which is now held by Anthony Joshua after his second-round KO on Saturday of Charles Martin, who had won the vacated title with a TKO win over Vyacheslav Glazkov. The fight with Joshua was his first defense.

Klitschko looked listless in losing to Fury in the first fight and it will be difficult for him to rediscover himself at such an advanced age. Haye obviously has a vested interest in the Fury-Klitschko rematch. Haye recently returned to the sport after a nearly four-year absence. Regaining a piece of the world heavyweight title is obviously on his to-do list, as is earning sizable paydays.

In January, Haye destroyed Mark de Mori inside of a round and he’s scheduled to face undefeated but untested Arnold Gjergjaj on May 21 at the O2 Arena. Haye is a massive draw in the United Kingdom and there’s no question a fight between him and Fury or and Joshua would be huge events.

More than likely, those bouts could sell out Wembley Stadium in London. If Haye gets his wish, a bout with Fury could take place by the end of the year. A win over Fury might require a rematch. If not, Haye could be on a collision course with Joshua in 2017.

If that string of events takes place, it’s practical to think that the two biggest fights in the sport over the next year will take place in the UK.

    Klitschko wants to show a knock out…..Fury will take the money and not rape Haye.

  5. bikermike 08:57pm, 04/16/2016

    ....you think about what andrew said…...that is the best HW Fight today..,,,,,for Boxing.

    Fury would cream Haye…before rape charges could be laid ??  But Haye would be well paid

  6. bikermike 08:38pm, 04/16/2016

    Let’s rock
    Hope TYSON FURY FIGHTS KLITSCHKO ........SOON…..AFTER HE GIVES DAVID HAYE HIS PAYDAY

  7. bikermike 08:31pm, 04/16/2016

    hauled the old iron lung outta storage….am bound and determined to ride in the first event in my area….,,,I’m not sure what the official name is,.....either drive until you’re blind.,,,,,,or raise money for MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS ....
    WHAT I’M SAYING…..Is that Klitschko should go balls to the wall…and leave..as a winner…or out on his shield

    being owner of those casinos and other properties outside of war zones will keep him nicely fed

  8. bikermike 08:16pm, 04/16/2016

    a match with tyson fury ...vs david haye…..would be the biggest charity to Britain….....since the days of the ‘lift’ to East Berlin

    David Haye is still a name fighter…who could use a payday,,,,,
    Klitschko needs a similar opponent….say…the mexican eclipse…..or something

    FURY VS KLITSCHKO IS STILL THE BEST HW FIGHT ON EARTH

    I’D PAY TO SEE IT

    brian mazique…....haven’t read too many of your posts…but i sure liked this one

  10. bikermike 07:53pm, 04/16/2016

    to be clear….Klitschko and Fury should fight…...soon ...before Klitschko qualifies for senior citizen benefits

  11. bikermike 07:39pm, 04/16/2016

    ANDREW….I’ll give you that , pal.

    Fury ...and Haye are ‘creations’ of the British professional boxing ....‘thing’

    USA has been lousy at HW….focusing on lightweight to middle weight name fighters….as far back as ray leonard..

    THERE IS AN OLD AX…....AS GO THE HEAVYWEIGHTS…...SO GOES BOXING.

    KLITSCHKO SHOULD DO HIS THING…..OR JUST NOT TAKE THE FIGHT

  12. bikermike 07:27pm, 04/16/2016

    If ever there was a time for Klitschko to ‘come to the dance with no panties on’...this would be the time.

    Klitschko is a skilled fighter..with a glass chin..and a shallow gas tank…BUT.So is FURY…without the skill,,,,,

    Fury has a glass jaw….and a shallow gas tank as well…..so   Klitschko should STAND HIS POST…AND DELIVER PUNISHMENT ON HIS OPPONENT….OR DIE ON HIS SHIELD TO DO SO

    Poor Wlad has been accused of so many ...many ...many boring fights….

    Let us see the fire that brought him here…...and damned be the torpedoes

    does KLITSCHKO WANT TO BE REMEMBERED(IF AT ALL)...AS THE MOST BORING HW CHAMPION OF THE WORLD ???

    It’ll be interesting to see if there’s enough money to make Fury give Haye a payday.
