For a considerable period of time, the heavyweight division has been monopolized by the brothers Klitschko. Wladimir and his elder brother Vitali seem to strengthen their grip upon the throne on each occasion they turn away another over-matched contender. Debate is often had as to where they fit in with the greats of the heavyweight past. Perhaps a more topical conversation would be “who out of the current crop can challenge them in future?” As such, ProBoxing-Fans.com is getting started with our very special Klitschko Readiness Rating. The KRR will examine the contenders and challengers, and offer a grade on each particular fighter's readiness, and potential, in facing either of the Klitschkos. First, we present Tyson Fury. Definition of the word “Fury”: wild or violent anger. Synonyms include; wrath, rage, frenzy. Definition of “Tyson”, see “Mike Tyson”: a heavyweight wrecking machine from the 1980’s to the 1990’s, a man commonly known at the time as “the baddest man on the planet”.
