Wladimir Klitschko's trainer, James Ali Bashir, believes there are only two fighters who can threaten his fighter - Bulgarian boxer Kubrat Pulev and British champion David Price (15-0, 13KOs). While he respects the challenges of Kubrat and Pulev (17-0, 9KOs), he does not consider Tyson Fury (20-0, 14KOs) as a serious threat to Wladimir (59-3, 50KOs) or older brother Vitali Klitschko.

"In my opinion, the only two boxers who can throw a real challenge to Wladimir Klitschko are Kubrat Pulev and David Price. Tyson Fury? No. I don't have a particularly high opinion of Tyson Fury. He's a big and strong guy, but he can't throw a punch. He slaps rather than hits. Wladimir Klitschko would knock Tyson Fury out. Fury against Vitali? Look, I'm not impressed with Tyson Fury. He's a big guy, throws a lot of punches, but Vitali would beat him," said Bashir to Baylor TV.

Sounds about right but Fury would still be a fun fight.

comment by TensionKiller, on 02-16-2013
[QUOTE=Earl Hickey]Statements like this always make me wonder if they really mean the opposite. They are basically saying they don't want to fight Fury, the fight would sell easily and be an event, just give fury the mic, and if he's easy money why not? Plus he did better than Vitali agains...
