Abraham: Klitschko will win Fury rematch

‘He made me feel like an old man’ – Amir Khan wins but respects Billy Dib

WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham says Wladimir Klitschko is a different calibre of fighter and expected the former heavyweight champion to defeat Tyson Fury in their rematch in the next few months.

In November, Fury shocked Klitschko and the boxing world when he won a 12-round unanimous decision in Dusseldorf, Germany to clinch the IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight world titles.

In an interview with Boxing Scene, Abraham says that he is still surprised that Fury was able to beat Klitschko since he feels that the British fighter should never have beaten someone at the level of the Ukrainian when handing him his first loss in a decade.

"I was shocked by the fact that Klitschko lost," Abraham said. "Because the Briton is not good enough to beat these types of boxers. 

"Klitschko – this is a different calibre of fighter. But apparently that day was bad for him, and he couldn't get it together, so Wladimir lost. 

"But I think Klitschko will win the rematch. Wladimir will examine the mistakes that he made and take them into account," he added.
