    Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, who have been dominating the heavyweight division for several years, plan to stage a boxing event in Ghana, which can help to promote boxing in Africa. Ghanaian Jonathan Ahene Truly, who is going to be a co-organizer, has revealed that the event is tentatively scheduled for March.

    A little off topic, but can someone answer this question for me.

    I don't know shit about boxing and I wanted to know how good is Tyson Fury and are the Klitchko's really avoiding a fight with him?

    Tyson Fury, for a prospect, has fought decent comp. He has lately started to use his size and added some improved defensive technique. He hits fairly hard and would be a handful for a lot of HWs. K bros aren't running from anyone, particularly him. I am sure Vitali in particular would love to splat him all over the canvas.

    Fury is decent. His talent is his size. He will lose to both Wlad and Vitali.

    No they're not avoiding him. Nothing has really been put to the table yet. It's obvious Fury wants more exposure on Channel 5 before going near the brothers.

    Surprised they didn't pick Nigeria. That seems to be a hotbed for untapped HW potential and they could even find some decent Nigerian competition for the main event.

    Fury has fought better competition than the average HW prospect. The only HW prospect doing better is Chisora, and Fury beat him too.

    Has Clottey been seen since Pacquiao? Even as a sparring partner?
