British heavyweight Tyson Fury, believes boxing will better off without the Klitschko brothers, adding that he’s the man to put an end to the Ukrainian dominance of the division.

­"I don't like either Klitschko, they're bad for everything to do with boxing,” Fury is cited as saying by Boxingscene.com. “As soon as I get hold of them and rid the sport of them the better – that's genuinely what I feel. They jab someone to death, when they have someone hurt they won't jump on them and finish them. They've got to be screamed at and shouted at."

Wladimir and Vitaly Klitschko currently own all four recognized boxing belts between them, remaining unbeaten in nearly a decade.  

Fury is also yet to suffer a defeat in the professional ring as the 24-year-old boast a record of 20 wins and 14 knockouts.

"I'm going to snatch that WBC title [from Vitaly Klitschko],"
he added. “There's a big queue of people trying to get it in front of me, but they're not ranked in front of me. I'm ready to go – why not let me fight next?"

The Briton is currently ranked fourth by the WBC, but all of his efforts to stage a bout against Klitschko have been in vain.

Fury’s next opponent will most likely be former IBF cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham, whom he’ll face at Madison Square Garden on April 20.

As for the Klitschkos, Wladimir is obliged to fight WBA ‘regular’ title holder Aleksandr Povetkin of Russia until February 27, while there’s no news of Vitaly’s next opponent.
