Gallagher on Fury Taking Over in 2013, Facing Price

by Edward Chaykovsky

Veteran coach Joe Gallagher has tabbed heavyweight contender Tyson Fury to take over in 2013. Fury (20-0, 14KOs) is very close to securing a title shot. Fury hopes to land WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko, or his younger brother IBO/WBO/WBA/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko.

There is also the big domestic showdown against fellow unbeaten David Price, but Gallagher feels the match should only happen once of them has a world title.

"Tyson Fury will be crowned king of the heavyweights in what will be an unforgettable 2013 for British boxing. I am certain this will be the year the Klitschkos’ dominance is finally broken," Gallagher wrote in the Manchester Evening News.

"Vitali Klitschko’s WBC belt is the one he wants first and that fight could go ahead as early as March. That will be the chance for Fury to make his critics eat their words.There are those who don’t like the trash talk – but you can’t argue with his performances over the past year."

"What about a clash with David Haye? Or a rematch with Dereck Chisora? And of course the big one – David Price. That is the fight everyone wants to see – but it is a fight that must be for a world title. I can see Fury v Price selling out Old Trafford and bringing back memories of Nigel Benn v Chris Eubank."

Well it sounds great, let's sit back and enjoy the show. Can't wait for Fury to clean out the division this year.

All these guys who want Vitali better be careful what they wish for.

With Price's team ready to table a 1million bid on the Price vs Fury fight is this basically another way of saying that theyre ducking Price for now?

Really like both boxers, think Price would stop Fury, but am convinced that neither would survive 12 rounds with Wladimir or Vitali.

for a veteran coach, the scabby rogue Joe Gallagher is quite poor at everything related to boxing training, except for getting his men 'fit'.
