ON Saturday November 28 one of the most anticipated heavyweight bouts in recent times will take place in Germany between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko.
Ahead of the clash Fury has commented on doping in boxing, saying that it is prevalent in the sport: “I can look at a man and tell you if he’s full of drugs by one glance at his body with his top off.”
He went on to say that legalising doping may be the best way to level the playing field: “I think being in a democratic world means we have to be open to different things. Why don’t they make drugs totally legal in sports and then it would be fully fair?”
The British Boxing Board of Control said that it was “committed in its fight against drug use in professional boxing”.
Klitschko is the favourite on Saturday and comes into the fight unbeaten in the last 11 years. The Ukranian will be defending his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles against the Manchester born Fury who is 12 years younger than the champion.
