Tyson Fury is now the heavyweight champion of the world. That's strange to say, but true. Wladimir Klitschko no longer reigns over the division. Is Fury's defeat of Klitschko on HBO a good thing for boxing? How does Tyson Fury compare to other "surprise" champions? It's a topic fit for a Gypsy King.
This coming weekend on Showtime, another "Battle for Brooklyn" looms, this time in the middleweight division. Brooklyn apparently has a lot of champions at this point. Daniel Jacobs fights Peter Quillin in what could be a very interesting matchup, if not a matchup between two of the slightly lower tier fighters in the division. We'll make the best of it.
Not to be ignored, Chris Algieri fights Erick Bone on Showtime Extreme. So we have that to look forward to.
