Fury says Klitschko only has an early KO chance of winning

wladimirBy Scott Gilfoid: Britain’s Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs) thinks that IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 53 KOs) has to catch him early in the fight with a quick KO for him to have a chance of winning their fight next month on November 28th at the ESPRIT Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Fury doesn’t see Wladimir as having a logical chance of beating him by a decision, so he sees him as only having an early KO chance for some reason.

I don’t know why on earth Fury thinks he can beat Wladimir by a decision, because he can’t move around the ring to save his life, and his jab is like a wet noodle. There’s no power in Fury’s jabs whatsoever, and he can’t throw his jab from the outside because of flexibility issues with his upper body.

“He knows it’s over for him here really. I think he believes he’s going to be in a hell of a fight here,” Fury said to iFLtv. “The only way he can beat me is to catch me early. You know the saying ‘catch them cold’? That’s his way of beating me. 1st round, 1st minute of the 1st round is where he has a chance of beating me.”

I think Fury has Wladimir mistaken with one of his past opponents like Dereck Chisora, because he’s the one that only has the early KO chance of winning this fight, not Klitschko. If the Klitschko-Fury fight goes past the 6th round, then you can pretty much forget all about the light hitting Fury having a chance of winning the fight. He’s going to be too punch drunk by the 2nd half of the contest to have a chance of winning.

All those jabs that Wladimir nails Fury with will have him groggy and no longer thinking clearly. Fury will be ready for a good night’s sleep by the championship rounds from eating so many jabs to the head, and he won’t be able to rally by that point in the fight.

Heck, Wladimir could punch himself out and be fighting on fumes in the last four rounds and still easily win the fight because Fury will be too groggy to mount any kind of comeback. He’ll just be staggering around the ring, throwing limp shots and taking punch after punch to his gob.

“Failing that, he’s lost. That’s what I think,” Fury said. “I’ve got a job to do and I’m being paid very well to do it. I’m not frightened of him, I don’t value him. I won’t go there ‘ooh Klitschko’ and stay in my shell for the first 10 rounds.”

I hope Fury’s psycho-babble lets him sleep easier at night, but on November 28th, it’s not going to help him at all because he’s going to be in the ring with the far superior fighter in Klitschko, and I think it’s going to be a cold dreary night for the 6’9” Fury. His fans aren’t going to have much to sing about in the audience at the ESPRIT Arena and I suspect that his trainer is going to need to get some extra help picking him up and bringing him back to his corner after he’s Ko’d by Wladimir.

“To me he is just another normal man with a pair of boxing gloves on, and he’s keeping me from the mega-money. The life changing money. I beat him and my life changes,” Fury said.
It’s not going to be all bad for Fury if/when he loses to Wladimir. He’ll get a lot of money and do really well in the losing effort. Fury will get life changing money just for losing the fight, so he’ll be alright. He can then go back home and lick his wounds and try and figure out what he did wrong.
