On Saturday Klitchko will fight with Tyson Fury. It will be the 68th fight in Klitchko's professional career.
The fight with Fury will be the 19th title defense of world champion in IBF and IBO, the 15th defense (after the re-conquest of the title) version WBO, 9th-protected version of super champion WBA, and 12th title defense, due to Champion magazine The Ring.
Earlier Wladimir Klitschko expressed his interest in meeting with Fury. However, Tyson argued that it is too early to box on such a high level - for a world title. That day it was his first refusal to fight.
Careful, rational Britisher spent two and a half dozen of fights before deciding on anything serious. And this serious has become a fight for the title of world champion with Wladimir Klitchko.
It should be noted that Fury's behavior in the pre-match press conferences and statements in interviews give no doubt - he does everything to annoy Klitschko and to put him out of balance. It means that the battle may be really spectacular.
