Fury: set for Klitschko title meeting on 24th october

 Rising Heavyweight sensation Anthony Joshua has thrown his opinion into the mix ahead of fellow Briton Tyson Fury’s World Heavyweight title confrontation with Wladimir Klitschko on 24th October in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Joshua believes that Klitschko’s greater experience and supreme championship pedigree will play a large part in dictating affairs come fight night.

 Speaking to Sky Sports, the affable Londoner declared; “there’s levels in boxing, Klitschko  is an Olympic champion and has been champion for 10 years professionally. Klitschko wins for sure.”

Joshua’s latest oration contrasts greatly with past public musings. He has previously been seen to be plaudit of Fury’s chances, stating in the past that “He’s young, he’s got nothing to lose which is important emotionally. He is a big man so the distance of range is equal, so I give him a chance.”

Joshua’s public change of heart could of course be a self serving prophecy of sorts.

Boxing is a sport build on rivalry and hyperbole. Should Fury fail to take possession of the world title, a clash between Fury and the undefeated Joshua would present a mouth-watering proposition.

Joshua’s comments could simply be a proverbial stirring of the pot; instruments carefully sent forth to aggravate Fury into acting out of provocation regardless of his October fate.

Speculation aside, a Fury – Joshua fight regardless of the status of the two combatants, would generate huge interest and this can only be a benefit to boxing.

Speaking again to Sky Sports and providing insight to this very issue, Joshua exuded a positivity on a possible Fury fixture.

 “If Fury was to win against Klitschko it would be great for boxing, and for me to fight him for a world title would obviously be bigger than fighting for the British.”
