Tyson Fury says he’d wear Wladimir out

Fury feels that he would have knocked Leapai out much faster than Wladimir did by throwing uppercuts rather than throwing just jabs the way that Wladimir did tonight. Fury also thinks he would set a really fast pace, if given a chance to fight the 6’6″ Wladimir, and he’d wear Wladimir out.

“Why not have a real fight, and why not fight Tyson Fury,” Fury said to Euro Sport. “Let’s get it on. I want you. Have a fight with a real man. I’ll set a fast pace. Wladimir does the same thing every fight – jab, jab, jab. I would have got that guy out much quicker with an uppercut. I would have made Wladimir fight at a much faster pace than he’s used to. There’s never been anyone like me and there probably never will be. 10 Wladimir’s wouldn’t put the fear in me.”

“The thing I’m angry about is I’ve had two heavyweight eliminators and I’ve still not gotten a heavyweight world title fight. I really believe I’m the savior of the heavyweight division. Wladimir, I’m coming for you and you can’t escape. I think you’re going to pull out and vacate rather than fight me. I’ll end his rein as the boring champion and bring somebody exciting.”

As you can see, Fury was pretty much babbling and not making much sense at all. He doesn’t have the speed, power, athleticism for the chin to do any better than Leapai did tonight. But Fury will make it interesting in the build up to the fight with him talking himself up. If nothing else, Fury will make it interesting in selling the fight, but he’s not going to have the power or skills do last more than 4-5 rounds at best.
