Tyson Fury beats Wladimir Klitschko: world heavyweight boxing – as it happened – The Guardian

I know it’s hazardous to read much into weigh-ins or other pre fight rituals but how calm and classy is Klitschko? He looks in good nick, unruffled and focused. I have a friend who photographed both brothers and found them pleasant, self-deprecating and good company.

To my mind there is something more unsettling about his placid, controlled professionalism than any amount of grandstanding. The sinister nature of his almost unapproachable focus.

So, er, good luck to Tyson Fury. I don’t think he will be able to pave himself over more than half a fight before running out of gas, after which Klitschko will start to turn the screw.
