Tyson Fury is the new heavyweight champion of the world! He won on points against Wladimir Klitschko in their heavyweight clash in Germany on Saturday night.
The official score: 115-112, 115-112 and 166-111 all for Fury.
It was really a dull performance of the former champion. Klitschko (64-4, 53 KOs) just landed a total of 52 punches in 12 rounds to Tyson’s 86. He just landed four body shots versus Fury’s 20.
Klitschko the obvious power puncher simply didn’t let his hands go landing only 18 power shots to Fury’s 48.
The classic Klitschko really showed tonight but it’s just that Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) had a different approach tonight compared to Klitschko’s previous challengers. Fury just did a little more than what Klitschko is doing to win points in every round.
Klitschko really got the dose of his own medicine tonight. Fury was able to capitalize his reach and height advantage, which was Klitschko’s advantage against former smaller challengers.
