Tyson Fury, the new star of World boxing recently joined Wladimir Klitschko in his last training camp in Austria.
Tyson said “It was a pleasure and a great honour spending time in camp with Wladimir Klitschko, it’s given me a great deal of confidence training alongside such a champion, he is definitely a fighter who is at the top of his game.”
“Wlad and his brother, Vitali are both modern day heavyweights who are not only very talented and athletic but also big heavyweights.”
“There has been all sorts of speculation flying around why David Haye isn’t fighting one of the Klitschko brothers, but in my honest opinion I believe it's because David isn’t big enough to deal with the likes of Wladimir or Vitali.”
“But I’m going to change all that in the future, not only am I talented, athletic, have the determination and toughness but also I’ve I got youth on my side, plus I’m also bigger than the likes of the Klitschko brothers as you can see by the photo.”
"When i realise my dream and become unified heavyweight champion of the world I will avoid no one, I'm sure I will be a dominant heavyweight champion just like Lennox Lewis, only I will be representing the UK and Ireland."
“I'm really looking forward to my next fight which is at the prestigious Wembley Arena on Saturday 19th February, this is going to be a big year for me, I'm going to give boxing the shot in the arm it needs.” Added Tyson
PS. Please take the headline as tongue in cheek, I'm just having a laugh as I have maximum respect for the Klitschko brothers.
The great night of Championship boxing at Wembley Arena will be headlined by two British title fights, the first title fight of the night will see Morden’s Lenny Daws looking to defend his British Light Welterweight title for a 3rd time and secure the Lonsdale belt outright when he squares up against Paddington’s Ashley Theophane.
The second British title up for grabs on the night will be for the welterweight crown, this will be contested between Shepherd’s Bush resident John O’Donnell and Craig Watson of Manchester. These two last meet back in April 2009 and produced 12 rounds of exciting boxing in which O’Donnell was crowned the new Commonwealth champion.
Colchester’s Commonwealth title challenger Lee "Lights Out" Purdy will be in back in action defending his Southern Area title against former British title challenger Michael Lomax of Chingford.
Joining these fighters at Wembley will be a host of talented young boxers including Haddenham’s Tornado Tyler Goodjohn, Islington’s John “Gorilla” Ryder, Phill Fury of Lancaster and brothers Chris and Andreas Evangelou of Enfield.
