With just under a month to go until the big World Heavyweight Title rematch in Manchester, Wladimir Klitschko has vowed to win back the gold.
The legendary, long standing former Champion was dethroned in November when Tyson Fury sensationally eased to a unanimous decision points win in Germany but is intending to be on the front foot this time: “The difference is I’m going to let my hands go which I didn’t in the first fight.”
Speaking during a specially recorded TV segment ‘Face to Face’ at April’s pre-fight press conference, Klitschko directed towards Fury: “When I let them go, you’ll see the difference.”
Klitschko is aiming to use the unfamiliar circumstance of being the challenger to his motivation.
“Believe it or not, I enjoy where I am right now as the challenger. I am relieved, relaxed but alert. I love that. It’s totally different to what I have had in the past 11 years.”
