Tyson Fury’s loyal promoter Mick Hennessy is backing his man to stop Wladimir Klitschko when the pair collide on July 9’s eagerly anticipated rematch.
Fury’s IBO, WBA, WBO world heavyweight titles are on the line after stunning the long reigning World Champion last November in the return bout billed “Repeat or Revenge.”
“The shape he’s in at the moment, I see it playing out with Klitschko being completely outclassed and walking onto a big shot with Tyson coming out with a brutal KO!” revealed Hennessy.
Wladimir Klitschko stated his knockout win intentions in April’s fight announcement press conference, the Hennessy Sports chief believes the veteran Heavyweight legend will be true to his word.
“I think he did everything he could in the last fight, he was shocked with Tyson’s range and power. You could see he was scared to walk onto shots. I think this time it’s basically sh*t or bust. He’s going to come to fight this time.”
Despite the first fight results, some bookies are struggling to split the pair for their intriguing return.
“The bookies missed a trick the first time with Tyson. We all know the score. People want to see him lose, he’s too out there… Too honest. A lot of people don’t like the fact he doesn’t play to anyone’s tune. The actual supporters and fans love the unpredictably but it scares the establishment to some degree,” explained Hennessy.
The promoter was speaking to iFL TV at the pre-fight media day in Team Fury’s Holland base: “If Tyson does what I believe he can and win this fight in style taking Wladimir out, that’s the end of his career.”
