Tyson Fury’s unpredictability could be the key that unlocks the door to to him becoming heavyweight champion of the world, that’s the view of top UK promoter and manager Dennis Hobson.
In his regular newspaper column in The Sheffield Star, Hobson – who has guided a number of fighters to world title glory – says that current WBO, IBF and WBA king Wladmir Klitschko will be facing an unorthodox, but ‘win at all costs’, foe when he steps into the ring on October 24 against Fury, and that the Manchester fighter has a real chance of ending Klitschko’s long reign.
“Tyson fury has such a will to win,” Hobson told The Star. “The Klitschkos are ultimate professionals and get the best from themselves, they know how to conduct themselves and they know how to win fights. They haven’t faced too many opponents as big or as tall as Tyson though. Tyson will give him all the trouble he can get, and if he can get the right sparring and is in the right frame of mind then he can do it. It will be great TV.
“I’ve been close to Tyson over the last couple of years and he’s got something about him. He’s been on his backside but he does whatever it takes to win. He bounces back and finishes strong, so I think he’s got a great chance of winning. So many people face the Klitschkos with a plan but I think, sometimes, Tyson doesn’t know what he’s going to do next, and that’s an ace he’s got. He’s got a great chance and I’ll be booking my ticket to go and support him.”
