Klitschko: Defeat from fury woke me up

Кличко: Поражение от Фьюри разбудило меня

Wladimir Klitschko told about the conclusions he made after the defeat.

Ex-world champion in superheavy weight Vladimir Klitschko, believes that last year’s defeat by Tyson fury should motivate him to new achievements.

“Defeat from fury woke me up. I prefer to step into the ring with Joshua, with the experience that he gained in battle with the fury. That failure motivated me, now I realize that was not sufficiently motivated. This may sound a little weird, but I prefer to be in a battle with Joshua as a contender, a real challenge for me.

Joshua is a real athlete. He’s got class, right size, weight. He has experience in the Amateurs and the professionals. Well, I come into this fight as the underdog,” – said Ukrainian.

Also Klitschko believes that the age difference (Vladimir is 14 years older than Joshua), will be a decisive factor in battle.

“I’m getting faster and fitter. I always say to my team, so they can tell if I start to lose its skills, since I can just ignore”.

Recall that on 29 April in London, Wladimir Klitschko and try to get the belt world champion in a fight against Anthony Joshua.
