FURY SAYS REMATCH NO PROBLEM

Tyson Fury insists he is just a 'normal
person who got lucky' enough to become the new world heavyweight champion
and is already relishing a rematch against Wladimir Klitschko.
27-year-old Fury shook up world boxing on Saturday by securing a unanimous
points win over Klitschko to snatch the Ukrainian's World Boxing
Association (WBA), International Boxing Federation (IBF), World Boxing
Organization (WBO) and
Organization (IBO) belts.
Fury singlehandedly brought a
heavyweight era to an end in Dusseldorf by inflicting a first defeat on
Klitschko for 11 years to end his run of 19 consecutive defences.
Klitschko was dethroned as world champion after nine years, six months,
and the win sealed Fury's place in boxing history as Britain's first
heavyweight belt holder since David Haye lost his WBA title to Klitschko
Fury is contractually obliged to offer a rematch and the new
champion said he would have no problem returning to Germany to face
Klitschko in 2016.
"It doesn't matter to me where I fight – Japan,
Uzbekistan, where ever it has to be," said the 27-year-old Fury.

THERE'S STILL FIGHT IN BUTE
By HERB ZURKOWSKY,
There’s still some fight left in Lucian Bute — just not enough. The
35-year-old veteran acquitted himself well Saturday night against
International Boxing Federation super-middleweight champion James DeGale.
Although Bute stood there for 12 rounds and produced a valiant effort,
he just didn’t have enough to dethrone the Englishman.
his first title defense, scored a unanimous decision win before slightly
more than 8,000 spectators at the new Centre Vidéotron.
Roussel and Phil Edwards both scored the bout in DeGale’s favour, 117-111,
while Nelson Vasquez ruled 116-112. The Montreal Gazette scored the fight
116-113 for DeGale.
DeGale, who won a gold medal at the Beijing
Olympics, improved to 22-1. He captured the vacant title last May,
defeating Andre Dirrell in Boston. Bute, who held the IBF crown for five
years — including nine defenses — is now 32-3.

KLITSCHKO DEFEATS KLITSCHKO
Wladimar Klitschko (64-4, 54KOs) did just as much in losing his IBF, WBA,
WBO & IBO heavyweight world titles as Tyson Fury (25-0, 18KOs), the new
champion, did in winning them. Case being, Klitschko at the end of round
ten had landed a total of 42 punches on Fury.
Klitschko did a lot of
holding and moving in losing the titles that he has held for the past 11
years. The final scores were 116-111, 115-112 & 115-112.
This had to be
one of the most boring heavyweight fights of all time as the 55,000+ fans
at the ESPIRIT Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany attested to.
IBF jr middleweight champion Jermall Charlo (23-0, 18 KOs) scored a fourth
round KO over Wilky Campfort (21-2, 12 KOs) in the first defense of his
belt on Saturday in Dallas, Texas. Charlo dropped Campfort in rounds two,
three and four before the bout was stopped after Campfort told the referee
that he could not see out of his right eye. Time was 1:16.
Unbeaten world rated welterweight Errol Spence Jr (19-0, 16 KOs) scored a
sixth round KO over Alejandro Barrera (28-2, 18 KOs). Spence dropped
Barrera twice in round five to end it.

their final quotes
Atlanta police have announced the murder
of former boxing champ O’Neil Bell on the day before Thanksgiving.
Police report that Bell and another passenger were getting off a
bus, when a car with four men drove up. Someone in the car shot
both men and then fled. Bell was pronounced dead at the crime scene
with a gunshot wound to his chest while the other passenger was shot
in the hip and transported to a hospital.
During his boxing
career, Bell held four different titles, which included the WBA, WBC
and IBF cruiserweight belts. Bell’s career lasted 13 years and his
record was 27-4-1 with 25 wins by knockout. Fighting under the names
“Give ‘Em Hell” Bell and “Supernova,” he was considered one of two
undisputed cruiserweight champions in boxing history. Bell, 40, was
born in Jamaica. Before entering boxing professionally, he was a
driver for UPS.
Police are now looking for a stolen 2006 Chrysler
PT Cruiser with the Georgia tag TJC685. Police released video
footage of the car and a possible suspect seen exiting the vehicle.
Bell was the second boxing champion to be killed in Atlanta. In
2009, welterweight champion Vernon Forest was robbed at gunpoint and
shot and killed at an Atlanta gas station.
Police are now asking
the public for help during the ongoing investigation. The public is
being asked to call the Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at
(404)-577-TIPS (8477). Callers with information are eligible for as
much as a $2,000 reward for tips that lead to the arrest and
indictment of the suspects.
