IT was cagey, tense and scrappy, but Tyson Fury got his tactics spot on as a frustrated Wladimir Klitschko failed to pin the crafty Englishman down for twelve taut rounds.
Klitschko’s face was bloodied and bruised, but it was his ego that took the most damage. After ruling the division for a decade, he will have woken up this morning as a former champion. A bitter pill to swallow.
Fury, on the other hand, did what he said he would – he shook up the world.
According to Sky Sports’ fight stats, the Ukrainian connected with just 52 of 231 punches thrown, while Fury landed slightly more: 86 of 371 launched.
