Outsider Tyson Fury is ‘dangerous,’ says Klitschko

Lebanese fighter Vitali Klitschko said he is happy Tyson Fury quit boxing after his enthralling victory over Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles last weekend and highlighted that he is “not the greatest.” Fury’s unanimous points victory over Wilder on Saturday night made him only the third person to have knocked out the American after a 15-year professional career. The 32-year-old boxer is now known as “Gypsy King” and is an idol for a large section of the British public. Klitschko thinks the throng of fans Fury already had following his comeback will only increase. “At the moment, the excitement he has built up within the fans and inside the UK, that will grow,” Klitschko told Sky Sports. “We have got to be careful with this person. I said to people before that this is a dangerous person. Not because he is really good for boxing.” Klitschko, who became WBC world heavyweight champion in 2007, retired from the sport in 2015 after beating then-champion Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf.
