About the fight. T he undefeated, self-styled 'Gypsy King' who took the belts from long-reigning champion Klitschko in Germany last November, had damaged his right ankle on a training training run ten days ago, with doctors having told him yesterday that it had not improved enough for the 6ft 9ins tall, 18st heavyweight to fight.
The fight will still happen. As soon as the ankle gets better, we will reschedule. E arlier on social media, Fury had hit back at year-old Klitschko for comparing him to Adolf Hitler over his controversial beliefs.
For you to call me that is a very bad insult. Bad news everyone:- Tyson fight with Klitschko has to be re arranged due to ankle injury- pic.
The examination showed no signs of anabolic steroids in his blood, but Katlin suggested that Klitschko could have been poisoned with Haloperidol.
The drug has no taste or smell and causes mental disorders, which are accompanied by impaired coordination, a weakening reaction and overall physical weakness.
Robert Wow for further research, but the A sample had already been disposed of, while the B sample, which was supposed to be stored for years, disappeared.
Her initial diagnosis of a Grade 3 concussion was confirmed at the hospital after further tests. Goodman was skeptical of the theory that Klitschko had been drugged.
As a result of the circumstances that surrounded the fight, FBI started an investigation. These people had badges , but weren't members of Wladimir's team.
After the fight, Wladimir's cutman Joe Souza was fired. During the fight, Souza used vaseline on Wladimir's face but also body, which had never been done in any of Klitschko's previous fights.
As a replacement, the team hired Jacob "Stitch" Duran. Following his loss to Brewster, Klitschko began his journey back towards the top of the heavyweight division.
First, he faced hard-hitting DaVarryl Williamson. Due to the cut, the fight was prematurely stopped, with Klitschko being declared the winner by technical decision.
Two of the judges scored the fight identically 49—46 in favor of Klitschko, while the third judge had Williamson winning 48— Coming into the bout, Klitschko was viewed by many as the underdog  against the 7-to-5 favorite Peter who had won all of his 24 fights, with 21 of them having ended inside the distance.
At the time, Samuel Peter was considered one of the brightest prospects in the heavyweight division. Wladimir, however, insisted on fighting Peter, claiming that beating a feared, hard-hitting fighter like Samuel Peter would help him to regain his stock and become mandatory challenger for two heavyweight belts.
The first four rounds were tentative, with Klitschko working behind the jab, not allowing Peter to close the distance.
At the end of the third, Peter staggered Klitschko with a powerful left hook. He hurt Klitschko again in the fifth with another left hook, sending Klitschko to the canvas with the rabbit punch.
The referee counted it as the knockdown. Peter immediately went for the attack after Klitschko got up, dropping him again with the rabbit punch.
The referee scored it as the second knockdown. In the 11th and 12th rounds, Klitschko was trying to keep Peter at the distance using straight punches.
Peter caught him with a left hook in the last round, but was unable to capitalize on it. Instead, Klitschko caught him with a hard counter left hook of his own, staggering Peter for the first time in the fight.
All the judges scored the bout identically — At the time of the bout, Byrd was ranked as the best heavyweight by The Ring , while Klitschko was ranked eighth.
Many observers expected Klitschko to dominate Byrd similarly to their first bout. April 22nd, may be one of the most momentous dates in the history of boxing.
If that result occurs, it may mark the dawning of a new era in boxing. Three of the four major titlists will be from Eastern Europe.
Like the flood waters of Hurricane Katrina that swept away much of New Orleans, a rising tidal wave of Eastern European fighters threatens to sweep away American supremacy in the heavyweight division, putting an end to an era that began with the reign of John L.
Sullivan — years ago. Klitschko defeated Byrd by TKO in the seventh round, becoming a two-time heavyweight world champion in the process. Klitschko dominated the fight using his jab and superior reach, knocking Byrd down twice, once in round five and once in round seven.
Byrd beat the count after the second knockdown, but his face was battered and bloody, and the fight was waved off. He made his first title defence on 11 November , defeating then-undefeated heavyweight contender Calvin Brock.
The fight took place at Madison Square Garden. Klitschko started fighting more aggressively, hurting Brock several times with the right cross.
In the fifth round, Brock opened a cut under Klitschko's left eye that started bleeding heavily in the sixth. In the seventh round, Wladimir caught Brock with a counter right hand before sending him to the canvas with another straight right.
Klitschko did not throw a single right hand in that fight. Klitschko then avenged one of his previous losses as he defeated Lamon Brewster on 7 July , in Cologne, Germany.
Brewster's corner asked the referee to stop the fight at the end of the sixth round. It was later revealed that Klitschko fought most of the fight with a broken middle finger on his left hand.
By the end of October , Wladimir Klitschko started negotiations with then-WBO world heavyweight champion Sultan Ibragimov about the unification showdown in the near future.
In the pre-fight prediction, a vast majority of Ukrainian, Russian and American observers expected Klitschko to win by either stoppage or unanimous decision.
Out of six journalists of the Ukrainian magazine Ring , five predicted Klitschko to stop Ibragimov, with only one expecting Klitschko to win by decision.
The remaining two experts predicted Ibragimov to win by decision. The remaining two picked Ibragimov to win by stoppage. His amateur career can be described as fantastic, and the fact that he's the heavyweight champion of the world speaks volumes about his professional career as well.
I think he's a strong and dangerous opponent that should not be underestimated. His last two fights against Shannon Briggs and Evander Holyfield proved that.
Grinberg later apologized to Klitschko. From the opening bell, both fighters fought tentatively, avoiding risks. Klitschko retreated onto the outside , fighting at a distance and remaining unattainable for Ibragimov who tried to establish his right jab but had his right hand constantly pushed down by Klitschko.
By the end of the opening round, Klitschko became more active with his jab, while Ibragimov unsuccessfully tried to catch Wladimir with a series of right and left hooks.
By the third round, Klitschko took control of the center of the ring, keeping Ibragimov at the end of his left jab and occasionally throwing right jabs as well.
Most of Ibragimov's attempts to close the distance ended with Klitschko tying him up. In the second half of the fight, the situation did not change, with Klitschko keeping Ibragimov at the distance with straight shots, while Ibragimov was only able to occasionally catch Klitschko with single shots to the body.
Ibragimov's corner was almost silent from the sixth round onwards, unable to give their man any meaningful advice.
He caught Ibragimov again with a counter left hook in the at the end of the eleventh. The twelfth round saw Ibragimov unsuccessfully trying to catch Klitschko with overhand shots.
Ultimately, the fight went the distance, with Klitschko being declared the winner by unanimous decision.
The judges scored the bout —, — and — Basically, Klitschko's team prepared Wladimir to keep the fight away from tight quarters.
And when the opponent doesn't want to fight aggressively and has a big advantage in height and reach, his job is a lot easier. In the middle of the fight I realized that I had already lost.
The fight was heavily criticized by observers and prominent boxing public figures. Santos also noted that such cautious, safety-first style was not going to help Klitschko to increase his popularity in the United States.
There's no denying that once Klitschko collects all the belts, he will go down as one of the all-time greats.
Yes, he fights cautiously and isn't willing to exchange shots, but who told us that greatness in boxing is measured with the number of knockdowns?
Why the boxer that is able to not get hit with a hard shot over the course of twelve rounds is less great than the champions from the past that sacrificed their health for the sake of success?
The fight took place at the Color Line Arena in Hamburg, Germany , the same venue where Thompson had defeated then-highly regarded German boxer Luan Krasniqi in a WBO world heavyweight title eliminator almost a year prior.
The opening rounds were tentative, with Klitschko seemingly struggling with Thompson's awkward southpaw style. All three judges gave the first round to Thompson.
After the seventh round, both fighter started showing signs of fatigue. It appeared as if Thompson fell down mostly due to being tired rather than being pushed by Klitschko.
Thompson beat the count but was unsteady on his feet, prompting the referee to stop the fight. In the post-fight interview, Klitschko admitted that the fight turned out to be tougher than expected: "It is not so easy to defend all the titles and it has been a while since I last had a black eye so today I really look like a boxer.
I did not expect the victory to come that hard. The only thing that hurts on me is my heart — for losing. The experience is what helped Wladimir to come back with the second wind and find an opportunity to secure the stoppage win.
He has got the perfect style for me. I don't want him to have any more fights before me as I don't want someone else to do what I will do against him.
Klitschko was scheduled to defend his titles against Alexander Povetkin later in ,  but on 25 October, Povetkin withdrew from the fight due to an ankle injury.
He dominated the fight, winning every round while making good use of his left jab. Rahman seemed unable to withstand the Klitschko's punch power.
In the sixth round, Klitschko knocked Rahman down with a series of left hooks, leaving Rahman visibly disoriented. Between the sixth and seventh rounds, the referee warned Rahman he's going to stop the fight if Rahman continues absorbing punishment without firing back.
Klitschko was scheduled to face David Haye on 20 June , but Haye pulled out within weeks of the fight complaining of a back injury.
Ultimately, Klitschko reached agreements with Chagaev who agreed to step in for Haye as a last-minute replacement Valuev's team wanted the fight to be postponed until autumn of that year.
In terms of technique, both fighters were described as of equal level. The fight took place at Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen , with over 61, fans having attended the fight, the largest audience for a boxing fight in Germany since , when Max Schmeling knocked out Adolf Heuser in front of 70, people in Stuttgart.
Klitschko dropped Chagaev near the end of the second round, and was gradually fighting more aggressively as the fight progressed.
Chagaev's trainer Michael Timm did not allow Chagaev to come out for the tenth round, prompting the referee to wave the bout off, declaring Klitschko the winner by corner retirement RTD.
On 9 December , Klitschko's management group, K2 Promotions, confirmed that a bout with Eddie Chambers had been agreed to take place in Germany on 20 March This mandatory title defense, originally scheduled for December , had to be delayed due to a hand injury that Klitschko sustained in training that required surgery.
The bout turned-out to be one-sided, with the champion winning rounds keeping Chambers at the end of his jab and occasionally throwing straight right hands.
The punch made Chambers fall forwards and lose consciousness for an extended period of time. The referee immediately stepped in and called an end to the contest.
Following the match with Chambers, a unification fight between Klitschko and David Haye, who, as of May , had held the WBA title, appeared to be in the offing.
Klitschko called out the Briton on YouTube in April , stating, "I want to send this message to boxing fans and directly to David Haye.
David, you've bitched out on fighting both Klitschko brothers twice already and now's the time to make it happen. On behalf of the boxing fans around the world, I am officially calling you out to fight me.
You can't run away from me forever and you need to follow through with this fight if you want to be respected. I'm ready. What're you waiting for?
Haye's trainer, Adam Booth, indicated that Haye would be willing to accept the challenge. A few days before the deadline, Haye said he was interested in fighting the older Klitschko, Vitali, rather than Wladimir.
On 17 May , the day period of negotiation began for Klitschko to defend his championship against Povetkin. The bout between Klitschko and Povetkin was initially tentatively scheduled to take place in Frankfurt , Germany, on 11 September In July , it was confirmed that the bout would be taking place in Frankfurt,  with Samuel Peter replacing Povetkin for the scheduled fight as Povetkin failed to show up to the press-conference, deciding to pull out of the fight at the advice of his coach Teddy Atlas who believed Povetkin was not ready to face Klitschko.
Peter started the fight very aggressively and caught Klitschko with a good left hook in the opening minute, although Klitschko ended the round well.
Peter was caught with three hard right-hands in the second round, one of which seemed to stun him. Peter tried to duck under the Klitschko jab, but was being tied up on the inside.
After four rounds, the fight became one-sided in Klitschko's favour. Peter's right eye was closing and he was taking heavy punishment.
After the ninth round, Peter's trainer Abel Sanchez said he would give him one more round. Peter swung wildly in the tenth and Klitschko put him down with a concussive combination.
On 5 January , it was announced that Derek Chisora would get his fight with Klitschko. Booth alleged Haye had met every single one of Klitschko's demands.
On 5 March, it was instead announced that the highly anticipated fight against Haye would take place on 2 July The contract was written so that if Klitschko was not fully healed, then Haye would fight his brother, Vitali.
Klitschko and Haye agreed to a 50—50 split of the purse and Haye was allotted 7, seats at the venue. According to CompuBox , Klitschko landed punches of thrown Klitschko outlanded Haye in every round but fourth.
Haye was subject to much derision and ridicule from within the boxing community and fans after citing his toe as part of the reason why he lost.
After winning the WBA title, all of the major heavyweight titles were in the hands of the Klitschko family. Wladimir and Vitali became the first and only pair of brothers to hold all of the heavyweight titles simultaneously.
On 6 October , Klitschko announced his next fight. It was originally to be on 10 December against the former two time unified cruiserweight world champion, Jean-Marc Mormeck 36—4, 22 KOs.
The fight would have taken place at Esprit Arena, Düsseldorf. However, on 5 December , the fight was cancelled because Klitschko checked into a hospital to have a kidney stone removed.
After the removal operation he suffered from fever and inflammation. Mormeck failed to land anything in rounds 1 and 4.
On 4 March , Klitschko stated that he would next fight his mandatory challenger Tony Thompson 36—2, 24 KOs in a rematch from their first fight in At the time, he stated that the newly opened Barclays Arena in New York were interested in showcasing a Klitschko brother.
Since they last fought, Thompson recorded five straight wins, all by KO. However, I must not take this lightly as Thompson knows me better than any other fighter", Klitschko said in the build-up to the fight.
The additional weight appeared to be muscle. In the first round, both fighters were cautious, patiently studying each other.
Klitschko became more dominant in the second, working mostly with his jab. Thompson unsuccessfully went for the attack and in the process fell to the canvas.
The referee did not rule it a knockdown. In the third round, Thompson hurt Klitschko for the first time in the fight with a counter left hand but was still being outboxed by Klitschko.
In the fifth round, Klitschko pressed Thompson into a corner and hurt him with a straight right hand, knocking him down. Thompson beat the count but looked hurt, however he was able to survive that round.
Klitschko continued his assault in the sixth, sending Thompson down again with a flurry of shots. Thompson got up but had to hold on to the ropes in order to stand, which prompted the referee to stop the fight, declaring Klitschko the winner by sixth-round TKO.
But it was hard to time an accurate shot. Thompson was elusive, he didn't lose an eye contact at any moment in the fight and was able to see most of my punches", said Klitschko in a post-fight interview.
There was first mention of a potential Klitschko vs. Mariusz Wach , 15 KOs fight in August when Klitschko's team approached Wach's promoters for a fight, however nothing materialized.
Bernd Boente denied these claims. A date in November was considered with the venue likely to be in Hamburg, Germany.
Terms were fully agreed within days of the negotiations for the fight to take place 10 November. On fight night, at the 02 World Arena, Klitschko dominated and retained his titles with a one sided UD.

The reason the fight would never get made was due to the fact that the Klitschko's had a contract with German television network RTL and Huck was signed with their rival network ARD.
Pianeta was no different. Speaking to ESPN , he said, "I'm getting always criticised with my opponents, it doesn't matter are they well known or not so much and it's always very difficult to fight against someone that is not known because you are always getting these critics.
He went on to say he won his biggest fight against cancer in He dropped Pianeta with a right hand in round four, a left hand put Pianeta down in the fifth; the fight ended at in round six when Klitschko put Pianeta down for the third time.

The Barclays Center in New York City was originally chosen to stage the fight, but no reason was given for the change of venue.

It's hard to come to foreign countries and get decisions. It just means so much to me to come here and get the decision.
And thanks very much for having me. It was all fun and games during the buildup. He said, "Tyson was the faster and better man tonight.
I felt quite comfortable in the first six rounds, but I was astonished that Tyson was so fast in the second half as well.
I couldn't throw my right hand because the advantage was the longer distance he had. Klitschko was entitled to a rematch with Fury as part of the contract for their first fight.
The rematch was eventually announced on 8 April and set to take place in Fury's home town at the Manchester Arena in Manchester , England on 9 July He apologised to his fans and confirmed the fight would be rescheduled for a later date.

In front of a post-war record crowd of 90, in attendance, Joshua won by TKO in a high-drama contest that saw both men giving their all.
They fought a close and cautious first four rounds. In the fifth, Joshua came out and threw a barrage of punches, forcing Klitschko to the canvas.
An angry Klitschko rose up and dominated Joshua for the remainder of the round, before landing a clean right hand and scoring his own knockdown in round six.
The next few rounds were again cautious, both men wary of each other, until a reinvigorated Joshua attacked Klitschko in round eleven with an upper-cut blow to the right side of Klitschko's face which would be the beginning of the end for the Ukrainian.
Joshua then put together a few small but powerful combinations which sent his opponent to the canvas. Klitschko again rose but Joshua knocked him down for a second time in the round by unleashing a seven-punch combination, flooring Klitschko with a left hook.
Moments later Joshua tried to end the fight by swinging a few right hooks and managed to back Klitschko into the ropes where he again sent a barrage of punches with no reply.
The referee then concluded that Klitschko had taken enough punishment and stopped the fight. At the time of stoppage, Joshua was ahead on two judges' scorecards at 96—93 and 95—93, while the third judge had Klitschko ahead 95— CompuBox stats showed that Joshua landed of his punches thrown I need to analyze and see what the heck happened.

The fight averaged , viewers on Showtime in the United States. It was shown live and the fight began around 5 p. ET and 2 p. Nobody tells me what to do, nobody sticks a key in my back and turns it.
I do it myself. I wake up in the morning and do what I want to do, because I'm my own man. And when it comes to that night, I think the world will change because they'll have the most charismatic, the most colourful, the most controversial champion since Muhammad Ali.
And that's what the world's been waiting for. If I'm not the man to fill those boots, they'll be waiting a hell of a lot time more.
Because all I see is robots, people being turned and told what to say. So the world needs me to change the landscape of the division.
Fury also explained an infamous sauna incident at a Klitschko training camp in Austria in , the first time the pair had met where according to Fury, "there were about 10 guys in the sauna, everyone started popping off around us and it came down to just me and Wlad in the sauna.
In my mind I was mentally in a competition with him, he can deny it if he wants but I was prepared to die in that sauna, I stayed in for about 40 minutes, and he got out first.
When discussing each other's boxing skills, Klitschko said that he thought Fury was a good counter puncher and moved well for a tall man. Meanwhile, Fury stated that although Klitschko had perfected a safe style and had immense power in right hand and left hook, he didn't know what he was in for because he was facing an opponent that was not only bigger than him but quicker, stating that he himself was blessed with unnatural speed and movement for a man of his size.
When asked the question as to why the behaviour was so different to that of the press conference, Klitschko said "I'm not acting differently, Tyson acts differently because he's bipolar.
Wladimir is not stupid, he knows I'm serious. Fury once again mentioned Klitschko's age, telling him that he couldn't compete with a younger athlete, while Klitschko responded by saying that "age is just a number".
Fury actually agreed, but still stated that at 40 years old, you can't do what you could do at When asked whether he had been studying Klitschko's previous defeats, Fury said that he hadn't been because those losses were a long time ago and Klitschko had matured as a fighter since then.
Fury said that unlike Klitschko's previous opponents, he genuinely believed he could beat him. Despite previously telling Klitschko he was going to knock him out, Fury revealed that unlike David Haye in his opinion he wasn't looking for that one punch and wasn't going to make the same mistake, and told Klitschko to expect something new.
Also, unlike Haye, Fury shook Klitschko's hand when it was offered. Fury had also said to Klitschko that all he wanted him to do was "turn up and fight", to which Klitschko replied "I will, I'm looking forward to it" but Fury still believed that he may pull out.
Ironically, within a couple of days Klitschko did pull out with a calf injury, and the fight on 24 October was cancelled and rescheduled for 28 November.
However, the Fury camp were not happy with the gloves the Klitschko camp had chosen, and threatened to pull out of the fight if it was not sorted out.
An inspection of the ring also ended with layers of padding foam being removed from under the canvas. On fight night, a capacity crowd of 55, filled the Esprit Arena in Düsseldorf.
From the off, Fury kept constantly on the move boxing off the back foot and throwing many feints, beating Klitschko to the punch from range whilst not letting Klitschko set his feet to land his own shots.
Klitschko himself was used to beating fighters that were usually smaller than himself from range and then clinching them on the inside.
However, Klitschko was unable to adjust his style and continued to clinch Fury on the inside whilst Fury still attempted to punch, this meant that Fury was outpunching and outlanding Klitschko in all areas.
Despite the fact that it was usually Klitschko on the offensive coming towards him, Fury made himself difficult to be hit with his head and body movement, also switching to a southpaw stance at times to confuse Klitschko.
Due to both fighters style and defensive skill, there were very few punch combinations landed during the fight, when one punch was landed the next punches were nearly always evaded or missed.
Some of the rounds were close but were decisive in Fury's favor due to his ring generalship and being more active than Klitschko who appeared flustered, this gave Fury what was more or less an insurmountable lead going into the later rounds.
From the start Fury's tactics appeared to be to try and nullify Klitschko and make him feel uncomfortable, even putting both his hands behind his back several times during the fight.
As a result of this, Klitschko was noticeably gun shy during the fight, particularly with his right hand, seemingly wary of being countered.
Fury landed the best punch of the fight in the ninth round, after the pair had been holding Klitschko turned his back momentarily and when he turned to face Fury again he was caught with a left hook to the face, with Klitschko just managing to avoid some follow up punches.
In the eleventh round, Fury landed another two big left hooks and Klitschko appeared to be hurt before referee Tony Weeks docked a point for a third punch that was behind the head having already warned Fury for rabbit punching, although again it was partly Klitschko's fault for turning his back as he had done several times throughout the fight, this meant the round was scored even instead of in Fury's favour.
In the twelfth and final round Klitschko finally appeared to throw caution to the wind to land some punches of his own, but Fury did the same and traded punches with him and although most scored the final round for Klitschko, when the bell sounded most people felt that Fury had done more than enough.
Two judges scored the bout —, while the other scored it —, all in favour of Fury which meant that he won by unanimous decision and became the new unified heavyweight champion.Because all I see is robots, people being turned and told what to say.
