By Allan Fox: If undefeated #2 WBC Anthony Joshua (14-0, 14 KOs) has the opportunity to fight for a world title against unbeaten IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) in the near future, he says he’ll take it. Joshua thinks he can beat any heavyweight in the division right now, and he’d like a chance to prove it by taking on Fury for all of his titles. However, Fury has a rematch coming up against the soon to be 40-year-old Wladimir Klitschko next year, and he’s not … [Read more...] about Joshua wants Tyson Fury

By Scott Gilfoid: We’ve all heard of the saying ‘poor loser’ but have you ever heard of a ‘poor winner.’ New heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) might be the perfect example of that after his narrow and totally unimpressive 12 round unanimous decision win over IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-4, 53 KOs) last Saturday night at the ESPRIT Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany. While you would think that the 27-year-old Fury should be happy about his win over … [Read more...] about Fury calls Klitschko camp “cheats”
By Scott Gilfoid: Last Saturday night, we witnessed Wladimir Klitschko lose his IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight titles to Britain’s Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs), and now we’re set to see a rematch between the two fighters next year at a still to be determined date in early 2016. Wladimir doesn’t want to contemplate a second loss to the listed 6’9” Fury. However, if it does happen, then there’s going to need to be some kind of plan C that Wladimir and his brother Vitali Klitschko can use to get the … [Read more...] about Will Vitali Klitschko whip Fury for Wladimir?
By Tim Fletcher: Unbeaten 32-year-old Peter Quillin (32-0-1, 23 KOs) doesn’t anticipate him having any problems making weight this Friday during the weigh-in for his fight on Saturday night against WBA “regular” middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs (30-1, 27 KOs) in their fight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Quillin failed to make weight last April in fighting to a 12 round draw against Andy Lee. Quillin ran out of gas in the second half of that fight, perhaps due to his … [Read more...] about Quillin faces Jacobs this Saturday in Brooklyn
By Eric Thomas: If Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) gets his way, he’ll be making his first defense of his new IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight titles in early 2016 in Manchester, UK. Fury beat Wladimir Klitschko (64-4, 53 KOs) last Saturday to win Wladimir’s titles that he’d collected slowly through the years. Fury wants to give his British fans a show by staging the fight at home in the UK. It obviously would be a risky thing for him to do because there are some big punchers at every level of the … [Read more...] about Tyson Fury interested in voluntary defense in UK
By Tim Fletcher: A day after his loss to Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs), former undisputed heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-4, 53 KOs) doesn’t plan on retiring, according to his manager Bernd Boente. He says Wladimir will be looking to face Fury in a rematch in 2016. The rematch appears to be heading for German. Fury is on board with the fight taking place in Germany despite having won last Saturday night. Fury doesn’t seem to have any problems with a second fight taking place in that … [Read more...] about Wladimir won’t be retiring, wants rematch with Fury
By Scott Gilfoid: Mark Breland, the assistant trainer for WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (35-0, 34 KOs), says they want new heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) as soon as possible for a unification fight. Fury defeated Wladimir Klitschko (64-4, 53 KOs) by a 12 round unanimous decision last Saturday night to capture his IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight titles in Dusseldorf, Germany. Breland isn’t ready to give Fury any credit for having beaten Klitschko, because he thought that … [Read more...] about Deontay Wilder’s trainer: We want Fury!
By Scott Gilfoid: WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (35-0, 34 KOs) feels that he’s now sitting on top of the world as the heavyweight division’s best champion out of the bunch now that Wladimir Klitschko’s long reign as a champion is officially over now. Klitschko met defeat last night in losing a 12 round unanimous decision to Tyson Fury in a fight that took place in Dusseldorf, Germany. Klitschko came into that fight as seen as the No.1 champion in the heavyweight division. The logical … [Read more...] about Deontay Wilder: I’m officially the best heavyweight champ of the world!
