A 27-YEAR-OLD man has won the World Punching Competition.
Tyson Fury was crowned champion after judges added up the number of times he and his opponent had punched each other.
A spokesman for the World Punching Organisation said: “This was an absolutely classic night of punching. The best bits were whenever one of them punched the other one in the face.
“It was an absolute treat for punching fans.”
Fury said: “My strategy was to keep punching him until he fell over, and whenever the bell went off to stop punching him for a bit and sit down.
“I felt like my opponent was thinking along very similar lines, which made it all the more exciting.”
Punching fan Norman Steele said: “In the final analysis, the punching was quite good. I’d like to have seen Klitschko do more punching.
“The more punching, the better. I don’t mind who’s punching who, as long as someone’s getting punched.”
However Fury’s opponent Wladimir Klitschko said: “We should get together again and punch each other again, but harder. That would be good.”
