Tyson Fury upset the heavyweight applecart in Dusseldorf with victory over multiple champion, Ukraine’s Wladimir Klitschko.
Fury was never in trouble against the 39-year-old and won the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts with a points victory against Klitschko.

But tonight just wasn't his night and it was my night. God gave me the victory tonight so I hope to have many more defences of these titles in the future and if I could just say one thing: if I could be half as good a champion as Wladimir Klitschko I'd be very, very happy." <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"tw-align-center lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">.<a href="https://twitter.com/Tyson_Fury">Tyson_Fury believes he will fulfil his promise of emulating the legendary Muhammad Ali https://t.co/ETotaL9nYo pic.twitter.com/BTcfM8ow7p— Sky Sports Boxing (@SkySportsBoxing) November 29, 2015
Fury is now undefeated in 25 bouts and the man from Manchester said he has more in his locker.
It is unclear if Klitschko will take up the option of a rematch and at the age of 39 it looks unlikely.
Another Tyson now looks set to be leading boxing’s heavyweight division into a new era.
