Peter Fury discusses the Klitschko rematch with John Dennen

WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO has declared that he will take the rematch with new heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury. But will the fight go any differently second time around?

Peter Fury, Tyson’s trainer, believes his nephew will only get better. “Klitschko’s a great champion. He’s been on top a long time,” Peter told Boxing News. “I wouldn’t say he was almost relieved but it’s over. Klitschko, he’s 39 years of age, he’s got a wife, he’s got a child, I’m sure he’s a very good family man… Personally speaking I don’t see what Wladimir can do.

“Tyson’s got so many more gears he can use, which he never used. Not because he left them in the tank. He couldn’t use them on the night because Wladimir was so good himself. He couldn’t get all he wanted off. Partly because that was a bit of apprehension from Tyson as well going into the unknown, he was being more cautious. Next time you’ll see a different Tyson, Tyson will step up another three or four gears on that performance as well and I just don’t see Wladimir living with it. I think we’ve seen the best of Wladimir. You’ve not see the best of Tyson.

“Klitschko hasn’t seen the rest of Tyson’s tools, which is also a good thing for us.”
