Tyson Fury to Wladimir Klitschko: Stop being a p***y and fight me

Scott Heavey

Tyson Fury wants Wladimir Klitschko. Again. Still. For the first time.

Tyson Fury's win over Joey Abell yesterday wasn't anything surprising, but the 6'9" British heavyweight is managing to use his return to the ring to stir up the pot once again, as he's called out Wladimir Klitschko for the 100th time:

"I want Wladimir Klitschko. He's avoiding me. Let's get it on Wlad. Stop being a pussy about the matter and let's fight."

Klitschko, who holds the WBO, WBA, and IBF heavyweight titles and is recognized as the only true heavyweight champion in the game (the WBC belt has been vacated by his older brother, Vitali), will fight on April 26 against Alex Leapai in a matchup that has no one excited, as has become par for the Klitschko course the last couple of years. It's as big a mismatch on paper as Fury-Abell was.

Fury (22-0, 16 KO) and Klitschko (61-3, 51 KO) could make for a massive fight, as Wladimir is the unquestioned ruler of the division and Fury, at 6'9' and with hand speed, power, and a fearless disregard for defense, has become one of the very few heavyweights you can rely on to not stink out the joint. At 6'9", he's taller than Wladimir, and he's got more skill than past giant pretenders like Mariusz Wach.

Does that mean Wladimir has been a "pussy" and "avoided" Fury? It's not really likely, but hey, maybe, I guess. I don't know how Wladimir feels about Fury, but Tyson has certainly done his part to call Klitschko out numerous times, and he's gone out and won fights, and on paper he's certainly a more credible foe than Leapai, Francesco Pianeta, Wach, Tony Thompson, Jean Marc Mormeck, or Eddie Chambers have been in recent years.

Do you think we'll see this fight, and perhaps see it this year?
