"The Great Upset"
Almost seven years ago, Britain's Tyson Fury "The Gypsy King" pulled off one of the great boxing upsets as he outpointed Wladimir Klitschko to become heavyweight champion of the world.
It was a dour and often messy fight but Fury, courtesy of his superior boxing skills, fully deserved to be awarded unanimous decision.
The fight lacked action for the first 10 rounds, with Fury accumulating points with more activity than a lethargic Klitschko. The 6-foot-9 Fury seemed to frustrate Klitschko, who was tentative from the start and rarely threw punches, landing even fewer.
Fury switched up looks on Klitschko, going from conventional to southpaw and used head movement to keep Wladimir from letting his hands go. It seemed as though Klitschko was looking for the chance for one big punch to end the fight, but never found that opportunity.
Fury, who was awarded the fight 115-112, 115-112, 116-111 on the judges' scorecards, became the WBA, IBF and WBO champion.
The 27-year-old Manchester fighter is only Britain's fifth bona fide heavyweight world champion after Bob Fitzsimmons, Lennox Lewis, Frank Bruno and David Haye.
