(Photo : Reuters) Tyson Fury beats Wladimir Klitschko in a 12-round unanimous decision win to capture the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO and The Ring Heavyweight titles at the Esprit Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany last Saturday.
British boxer Tyson Fury officially ended Wladimir Klitschko's decade-long tenure as world heavyweight champion after scoring a 12-round unanimous decision victory over the Ukrainian at the Esprit Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany on Saturday.
Although many boxing pundits see the fight as "ugly", Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) had pulled off the shocking upset by leading the scorecards of all three judges, 115-112, 115-112, 116-111, with Klitschko (64-4, 53 KOs) seemingly unable to throw his usual punches because of the Briton's well-planned evasive techniques.

The Guardian noted that Fury had landed 86-of-202 punches, 48 of them power blows, while Klitschko connected 52-of-69 with 18 power punches. The glaring item in the punch statistics is the 39-year-old Ukrainian's thrown punches, 69 as compared to Fury's 202, which is deemed too low in a 12-round contest.
There are said to be only two possible reasons for the punch attempt disparity. It's either Fury executed his game plan flawlessly or Father Time has simply caught up on the great champion Klitschko.
CompuBox released a different punch stat, 86-of-371 for Fury and 52-of-231 for Klitschko; still the difference in punches thrown is immense.
Bleacher Report indicated that Klitschko had a hard time fighting his "rangier foe" as his "jab hit nothing but air to start, and he found little opportunity to throw the right with Fury staying out of his range".
In the fifth round, the defending champion's right eye was cut due to an accidental head butt, which further compounded his struggles of trying to land a punch against his slippery challenger.
Fury was winning round after round basically because he had more punch connects rather than there is notable action in the ring. It was clearly the perfect strategy for the Manchester native.
Klitschko managed to hurt Fury for the first time in the last two rounds of the match, but it was just a little bit too late before he was able to catch the Briton as he could not fully commit on his attacks perhaps because of fatigue.
