HISTORY: On November 28, 2015 (postponed from October 24th) at ESPRIT arena, Duesseldorf, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany heavyweights Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury fought with Klitschko's heavyweight titles at stake. Fury prevailed winning a 12 round unanimous decision. Tyson Fury, following in the steps of Lennox Lewis, brought the unified World Heavyweight Championship back to the United Kingdom with a 12 round unanimous decision over Wladimir Klitschko. At 26 years of age and standing 6'9" to Klitschko's 39 years of age and 6'6", Fury became the first fighter ever to legitimately outpoint Klitschko, dealing him his first loss in eleven years. The bout was marked by frequent clinches but not much punching. Despite being in center ring, Klitschko landed only 52 punches all night, for an average of 4.5 punches a round and only four body shots the whole night. Pawing with his jab using an 85 inch reach advantage, Fury waited for the cautious Klitschko to counter. However, with a shorter 81 inch reach, Klitschko couldn't, and wound up with a cut beneath his left eye trying to get inside, apparently from an accidental butt after a clinch in the fifth round. It was rounds into the bout before Klitschko could land a punch at all. Klitschko tried to throw punches in round 12 and won it, his best round of the bout. Nothing hurt Fury, however. Fury landed 86 punches, of which 48 were crisp power shots, many of them to the head, which proved to be the difference on the judge's scorecards. Klitschko stated he wanted a rematch. Offered here is an original, on site poster for the event which has been signed by both Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko.
