Tyson Fury: There is Nobody For The Klitschkos, Just Me!

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

TYSON FURY insists he is the only man capable of ending the Klitschkos’ domination of the heavyweight boxing scene.

The Ukrainian brothers have held all four world title belts since Wladimir convincingly out-pointed Fury’s fellow Briton David Haye a year ago.

Vitali, 40, is lining up his last fight – expected to be in September, – and Fury hopes he will be ready to contest the vacant WBC title by the end of the year or in 2013.

Ideally, Fury, 24, would love to put on a show at Old Trafford, home of his beloved Man United.

But he is in no rush to face Wladimir, 36, for his WBA, WBO and IBF belts which he defends against Yank Tony Thompson on Saturday.

While Wladimir, nicknamed Dr Steelhammer, is in action in Switzerland next weekend, Fury will be looking to extend his unbeaten record to 19 fights against the American Vinny Maddalone and improve his WBC ranking which is world number six.

The 6ft 9ins Morecambe-based boxer says he will only meet Wladimir when he is ready.

He said: “I could have fought the Klitschkos already. We’ve been offered the fight a few times. When I beat Dereck Chisora, Wladimir and Vitali said, ‘We’ll take the winner of these two’.

But I just wasn’t ready and I wouldn’t rush for a payday.

“But by Christmas I should be mandatory for the WBC title. Nobody’s going to get in my way of winning the world title.”

Delivering a message bound to wind up Liverpool fan and big rival David Price, Fury added: “There’s nobody for the Klitschkos really, just me.

“I don’t rate the Americans, like Seth Mitchell and Deontay Wilder.

“I’d like to fight those two but it makes no sense just now to fight ten- rounders.

“When I win the world title I’ll defend it against whoever but I don’t want to waste rounds now.

“I’m not interested in Vegas, I’d like to fight in England.

“Either at Old Trafford or some big stadium like that against one of the Klitschkos.

“To fight at Old Trafford is a big dream. I’d love to have Wayne Rooney carrying my belt in, definitely.”

Meanwhile, Fury, who has been training in Belgium for Saturday’s Maddalone fight, is tipping Haye to beat fellow Londoner Chisora at Upton Park on July 14.

But Fury says those two are not on his radar as he eyes a future clash with the main man Wladimir Klitschko.

"I'm not interested in Las Vegas because Mick Hennessy doesn't have a licence in America". Aside from the fact that Fury's a clumsy 6'8" domestic buffoon who should by all rights have been knocked out by now... what gives him…

When I first read the title my first thought was that the Klit bros where actively looking for a tall sparring partner and Fury was answering the call for them.

nobody [I]including[/I] you Fury accepted Klits' dominance as a formality yrs ago nobody is gonna come close to beating them maybe Vit just because he's old and near retirement but on merit alone, there's no one to threaten them

[QUOTE=yoz;12295038]He'll never be ready. Fury's a nobody in the HW division. 500m he calls out Wlad, Povetkin or Haye after his next fight, though.[/QUOTE] he's the only under 25 fighter in the top 25 which i think is quite an…
