Fury says he has more to offer

Tyson Fury has warned there is more to come from him after he beat Wladimir Klitschko to become the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight boxing champion of the world.

The 27-year-old stunned Klitschko with a points victory to snatch the champion's four titles and become the first Briton to hold a world heavyweight boxing crown since 2011.

The Manchester fighter insisted he would beat Klitschko again if the former champion takes up the option of a rematch - and would be happy for it to be in Germany again.

Klitschko said the battle between the two of them is far from over.

Undefeated Fury, who improved his record to 25-0 and now has the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts, was hardly troubled by the 39-year-old Ukrainian who suffered his first loss in 11 years.

"I worked for six months for this in the gym, it's a dream come true," Fury said in a ringside interview while draped in his new world title belts and unable to hold back the tears.

Klitschko managed to get close with a few good left jabs in the second round but Fury landed a powerful right, pushing the Ukrainian back.

Fury, changing between southpaw and orthodox stance, kept chipping away at Klitschko's defences with his combinations and by the eighth round the champion was bleeding from a cheek wound.

Fury, who shed 32 kilos in five months to get in shape for the fight, landed a bruising left uppercut in the ninth that wounded Klitschko's right eye.

Sensing the title slipping away, Klitschko threw everything he had in the final round for a knockout but ended up losing on all three of the judges' scorecards, his nine-year reign ending.
