Wladimir Klitschko is keen on regaining his belts when he trades punches with the reigning WBA (Super), WBO, IBO, The Ring and lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury in a rematch on July 9 at Manchester Arena. Earlier, Fury (25-0) had beaten Klitschko (64-4) via unanimous decision in November last year.

It’s not an obscure fact that the duo is nemesis off the field as well. Fury often pitches the verbal volley first, while Klitschko condemns his remarks. The tradition continued even at the press conference recently. However, Klitschko is rooting for the watershed moment in his rivalry with Fury, come July 9.

“I’m embarrassed for myself making this mistake and losing the fight to Tyson Fury because he is not a heavyweight champion that I want to look up to and be proud of,” Klitschko was quoted by Boxing News. “The statements that he made are embarrassing. He is going to have for a second time a big stage.”

The 40-year-old further added that he’s on a mission to inflict the first loss on Fury, and that he’s not looking beyond this fight.

“Whatever nonsense and stupidity is going to come out of his mouth is just embarrassing to me,” he continued. “I’m on a mission. I will not look beyond Tyson Fury… You have to see it. Because there’s not going to be repetition. I’m not going to stand there, no, I will be present.”
