Fury: When I Kicked Klitschko's Ass - I Became Heavyweight King

Tyson Fury has no doubt that he remains as the top dog to beat in the heavyweight division.

Back in November of 2015, Fury shocked the sport when he traveled to Germany and won a twelve round unanimous decision over Wladimir Klitschko.

But then Fury took off for over two years, due to substance abuse issues and other problems related to his mental health.


After only two stay busy fights, he fought WBC world champion Deontay Wilder to a controversial twelve round split draw last December.

“I’d just like to clear something up,” Fury said. “Let’s rewind a few years to November 2015, there’s no doubt in anybody’s minds that Wladimir Klitschko was the undisputed heavyweight champion. When I kicked his ass, I became the undisputed heavyweight king.”

Fury returns to the ring on June 15th, when he makes his Las Vegas debut against unbeaten Tom Schwarz at the MGM Grand. The bout will be the first for Fury under his new deal with Top Rank and ESPN.

Schwarz is a tremendous underdog, but Fury is expecting a very tough fight.

“It is something I am enjoying as an athlete, a person and boxer,” Fury said.

“I really love my job at the minute, more than I have ever done before. I used to think boxing was a chore, a job to go to. I trained hard for a fight and then put a ton of weight back on. Now I enjoy what I do, keep fit even when I am not boxing. I almost live my life as a routine training camp.

“[Schwarz] is not ill-preparing for this and turning up for a paycheck. He is turning up to take the lineal championship of the world. It will be an epic fight – it’s Las Vegas, it’s showtime and I will look to put on an explosive performance in the States.”
