Klitsch-KO'd?

December 07, 2015

After years of overwhelming opponents with his size, it was fitting that Wladimir Klitschko's nine-year reign atop the heavyweight division was ended by somebody bigger. Last Saturday, in Dusseldorf, Germany, Tyson Fury, the 6'9", 247-pound Brit, snapped Klitschko's 22-fight winning streak, outboxing the 6'7" Ukrainian, who weighed in at 246 pounds, en route to a dull decision. Showing off superior speed and motivated by a hunger that Klitschko hasn't shown in years, Fury controlled the fight throughout. A rematch is likely in early 2016, but Fury's win demystified Klitschko and, perhaps, signaled the beginning of a new era in the heavyweight division.
