BREAKING: Tyson Fury postpones heavyweight title rematch vs. Wladimir Klitschko due to injury.[🎥ht @AgainstTRopes]pic.twitter.com/oTSuFClPmv — Bleacher Report UK (@br_uk) June 24, 2016 If you were looking forward to the Tyson Fury vs Wladimir Klitschko rematch, unfortunately you’ll have to wait a little longer. According to a post on his twitter account, Fury was out running when he fell and sprained his ankle. With the fight less than two weeks away, there was no way Fury could continue training, let alone compete. Fury says the fight will be rescheduled as soon as he’s been cleared.
Tyson Fury is wild dude. Like really out there. At the press conference before his first bout against Wladimir Klitschko he entered the press conference dressed like the masked avenger Batman. At Wednesday’s press conference he topped that but stripping down to his birthday suit…partially. Oh and there were the cheerleaders, and punctuating the event telling his opponent to F*** off. Fury is a wild dude. Watch for yourself.
In case you missed it… Newly crowned heavyweight champion Tyson Fury was the subject of the latest installment of Real Sports with Bryant Gumble. An interesting look at a champion who emerged from humble, traveling beginnings as a one pound infant to become the King of the division.
BROOKLYN, NY — While Deontay Wilder celebrated his devastating 9th round knockout victory over Artur Szpilka, WBA/WBO champion Tyson Fury decided to join him in the ring and express his desire to face him a la WWE style. No matter what you think of the two champions, you have to admit, this is some entertaining stuff.
With the retirement of Vitaly Klitschko and the defeat of Wladimir Klitschko, the heavyweight landscape has been evolving and changing at a frantic pace. On Thursday, Amir Mansour of Philadelphia announced via social media that his next opponent is 2012 Olympian Dominic Brazeale. According to the post, Mansour states the fight will take place on Janury 16th (on the undercard of the upcoming heavyweight clash between WBC champion Deontay Wilder and Artur Szpilka). As an undercard, the victor potentially gets set up for a crack at Wilder for the title later in 2016. For Mansour, he once again finds himself on the big stage after a questionable decision result against Gerald Washington in October. Mansour, largely considered as winning…
As expected, Dr. Steelhammer aka Wladimir Klitschko announced on Wednesday that he will exercise his rematch option against Tyson Fury. Fury defeated the long reigning champion last Saturday in Dusseldorf, Germany to become the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion. Calling it an “early Christmas gift” to Tyson Fury and all boxing fans, Klitschko says time and place details soon forth coming. Merry Christmas and remember, failure in life is not an option.

DUSSELDORF, GERMANY – For all his quirks and interesting ticks, Tyson Fury managed to reign it in and do what so few have been able to before him. In front of the overwhelmingly pro-Klitschko crowd, the Gypsy King toppled Wladimir Klitschko to become the new WBO, IBF, and WBA heavyweight champion. If you were looking for a show down chock full of technical execution and hard, heavy blows…this wasn’t that fight. Messy, off kilter and odd to watch, the pendulum of momentum swung predominately in the Fury direction evidenced by clear domination of a majority of the rounds. As the man with the busier hands and more accurate punching, the judges ultimately saw it in Fury’s…
In case you missed it, watch alphabet champion Wladimir Klitschko and challenger Tyson Fury go toe-to-toe (at a desk) on The Gloves Are Off. Absent are the theatrics we typically see at the press conference involving Tyson Fury and instead we see controlled trash talk between the two giants. Paging David Haye. The two meet in Dusseldorf, Germany November 28th.
If you were anxious to see the October 24th heavyweight showdown between champion Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury, you’ll have to wait just a bit longer. On Thursday, Klitschko posted a message on his Instagram account alerting fans and followers that he suffered a tear to his left calf during training. A injury he characterizes as “minor.” As a result the fight is off but he he’s optimistic a new fight date will be scheduled soon. According sources, previously purchased tickets will be honored. Needless to say, Fury was none too pleased taking his frustrations with the alphabet champion to social media. Looks like the “Gypsy King” is cursed once again by a cancellation.
