Wladimir Klitschko Gives His Honest Prediction For Tyson Fury And Deontay Wilder's Rematch
Boxing legend Wladimir Klitschko has admitted that he is leaning towards a Tyson Fury victory in the upcoming rematch with Deontay Wilder.
The 'Gypsy King,' 31, is scheduled to face WBC champ Wilder on 22nd February in Las Vegas.
And Klitschko, who was dethroned by Fury in their sensational 2015 clash, believes that the Brit superstar will take down his fierce rival on the night.
"I think, or I wish, that actually Fury, believe it or not, might make it. Maybe not, but I wish he's going to," he told the National.
"But it could possibly be a good mix when, all of a sudden, Fury is going to win and a lot of different doors are going to open and excitement and things like that."
Former unified champ Klitschko went on to suggest that the fight will end in one of two ways.
According to the Ukrainian legend, Wilder will win either by knockout or Fury secures a victory on points.
"But as I said, Wilder is going to win by knockout or Fury could win on points," Klitschko continued.
Fury has argued that he was robbed of a memorable victory against Wilder, 34, when the pair initially clashed in 2018.
But the 'Gypsy King' has vowed to avoid that scenario in the rematch and promised to knock his fierce rival out.
The 31-year-old Brit has admitted that he plans to soak his hands in petrol to tighten his knuckles ahead of their forthcoming rematch.
Anthony Joshua has also handed out his prediction for Fury and Wilder's rematch and fully backed the Brit to emerge victoriously.
"I think Fury wins," he said. "A man who nearly done it the first time won't get it wrong the second time.
"That's the only reason why. I think that he came close the first time to the point of a draw, it wasn't like a 12-round masterclass, then got battered in the 12th and that just separated it.
"It was a draw, it was that close. So I just think Tyson Fury is going to correct his wrongs and come back and win."
