Klitschko: Fury is a Fart in The Wind - Hands Down Joshua Wins

ANTHONY JOSHUA WOULD “hands down” beat Tyson Fury but may find life tough in a fight against Deontay Wilder, according to Wladimir Klitschko.

Ukrainian Klitschko hung up his gloves after last year’s stoppage loss to Joshua, who went on to add the WBO strap to his WBA , IBO and IBF titles by out-pointing Joseph Parker in March.

Fury previously held all three heavyweight belts after beating Klitschko on points in November 2015, though he has not fought since that famous triumph in Dusseldorf in November 2015.

The 29-year-old is scheduled to make his long-awaited ring return on June 9, a move that increases the possibility of a money-spinning bout against fellow undefeated fighter Joshua at some stage in the future.

However, having faced both men during his distinguished career, Klitschko is in no doubt over the outcome of a potential all-English showdown.

“Hands down, Joshua [wins]. He is getting to be the complete fighter,” Klitschko said in an interview with the Times.

“Technically, size-wise, weight-wise, power-wise. And he is a good learner. The other guy [Fury], like a fart in the wind it is there and it is gone.

“In the history of boxing there are a lot of examples of this kind of guy. They can be successful for a time but are not disciplined enough to continue to be successful.

“I wish Tyson well but I think there is a lack of discipline there, and discipline is more important than motivation. Motivation comes and goes, discipline remains.

“I am not Nostradamus, I can’t predict the future, but drawing from my experience I would say it is going to be very difficult for Tyson because there’s that lack of discipline.”

[QUOTE=McNulty;18675060]Rematch for what? Vlad won like maybe 2 rounds. Fury dominated his soul. Let's be honest, Vlad was never really that good. His size advantage payed a big role in his success. If he wasn't such a physical speciman, he…
