Klitschko: Joshua will beat Tyson Fury ‘hands down’
Tyson Fury first dethroned the Ukrainian back in November 2015 before Anthony Joshua emerged as the victor from their epic Wembley bout almost a year ago
Wladimir Klitschko is not bitter about the back-to-back defeats that ended his reign over the heavyweight division and his 21 years in boxing.
Instead, the 42-year-old has accepted it and now pays close attention to his two conquerors in between giving classes to Masters students at the University of St Gallen in Switzerland and running the promotions company K2 that he founded with his brother Vitali.
Tyson Fury first dethroned the Ukrainian back in November 2015 before Anthony Joshua emerged as the victor from their epic Wembley bout almost a year ago.
Now, there is a possibility Klitschko’s two former foes could meet in an all-British dust-up following Fury’s comeback announcement earlier this week.
Having shared the ring with both of them, Klitschko is well placed to weigh in on the discussion and has few doubts over the outcome if the fight was ever to materialise.
“Hands down Joshua,” Klitschko told the Sunday Times when asked who is the better fighter.
“He is getting to be the complete fighter. Technically, size-wise, weight-wise, power-wise. And he is a good learner. The other guy (Fury), like a fart in the wind it is there and it is gone.”
