Tyson Fury is Honest: Klitschko Would Knock Me Out!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Unbeaten British/Commonwealth champion Tyson Fury (15-0) is very honest with himself. While his promoter Mick Hennessey continues to hype up his chances, Fury admits that he's far from ready for either of the Klitschko brothers, Wladimir or Vitali. He wants to further groom his skills, perfect his combination punching and get his body into better shape. Fury returns to action on Saturday night in Belfast against Nicolai Firtha.

“I’m not ready. I’m a novice, Klitschko would knock me out,” said Fury to the Manchester Evening News. “I need to go back to basics and learn how to fight again. When I was 14 and 15 I used to fight with 10-punch combinations, now I can’t put two and three combinations together. I’m winning fights, but I can’t do what I did before. I was the fastest heavyweight since Muhammad Ali, but I’ve just gone slow, sluggish. I’m winning because I’m so big, I’ve got a heart to keep going and my chin is all right too. But I’m not winning because of my skill.”

Its cool to see Fury being honest, hes no where near ready for a Klitschko. I personally think he will never be ready for them unless they all of a sudden become shot.

I keep becoming a bigger & bigger fan of this guy. Gotta love his honesty, I think it'd be a shame to put him in with a Klitschko now and have him flame out. Who knows if he ever gets…

[QUOTE=Clegg;11129044]Is he still being trained by Steward? I thought they'd stopped working together.[/QUOTE] He will be again. Steward said he will be working Fury's corner in the future, but not for Saturday's fight.

The fact that he still employs his uncle as his main trainer is a big problem IMO He needs to cut his family out when it comes to his career, and try and get with Steward full time, he trains…
