Boxer Wladimir Klitschko took his first L in 11 years. Tyson Fury handed Klitschko the defeat in Germany is the new world heavyweight champion, and the jokes are flying.

As for the fight. Reports the BBC:

Britain’s Tyson Fury shocked the boxing world by outpointing Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf to become heavyweight champion of the world.

It was a dour and often messy fight but Fury, courtesy of his superior boxing skills, fully deserved to be awarded a unanimous decision.

Klitschko, whose nine-year reign as champion was brought to an end, simply could not work the challenger out and did not do enough to win.

Fury, who was awarded the fight 115-112, 115-112, 116-111 on the judges’ scorecards, is now the WBA, IBF and WBO champion.

Now for the jokes. With a name like “Tyson Fury,” what did you expect? And yes, he sang before the fight.
