An inspection of the ring also ended with layers of padding foam being removed from under the canvas. From the off, Fury kept constantly on the move boxing off the back foot and throwing many feints, beating Klitschko to the punch from range whilst not letting Klitschko set his feet to land his own shots.
Klitschko himself was used to beating fighters that were usually smaller than himself from range and then clinching them on the inside. However, Klitschko was unable to adjust his style and continued to clinch Fury on the inside whilst Fury still attempted to punch, this meant that Fury was outpunching and outlanding Klitschko in all areas.
Despite the fact that it was usually Klitschko on the offensive coming towards him, Fury made himself difficult to be hit with his head and body movement, also switching to a southpaw stance at times to confuse Klitschko.
Due to both fighters style and defensive skill, there were very few punch combinations landed during the fight, when one punch was landed the next punches were nearly always evaded or missed.
As a result of this, Klitschko was noticeably gun shy during the fight, particularly with his right hand, seemingly wary of being countered.
Fury landed the best punch of the fight in the ninth round, after the pair had been holding Klitschko turned his back momentarily and when he turned to face Fury again he was caught with a left hook to the face, with Klitschko just managing to avoid some follow up punches.
In the twelfth and final round Klitschko finally appeared to throw caution to the wind to land some punches of his own, but Fury did the same and traded punches with him and although most scored the final round for Klitschko, when the bell sounded most people felt that Fury had done more than enough.
Two judges scored the bout —, while the other scored it —, all in favour of Fury which meant that he won by unanimous decision and became the new unified heavyweight champion.

He then said "tonight was my night and God gave me the victory, so I hope to have many more defences of these titles. Viewing figures on HBO reached 1.

Glib snark and tired pop culture jokes aside, this fight could be just what the division needs. Some have accused Klitschko of killing heavyweight boxing, what with his year unbeaten run and 18 title defences on the spin.
Tyson Fury then — even taller, heavier, with a greater reach and utterly unpredictable — could be exactly the opponent Klitschko needs to shut up the critics who accuse him of doing little more than robotically demolish no-hopers.
On the surface of it, there are plenty of reasons to get behind Fury. Aside from being the patriotic choice and the more exciting fighter, he could become the first traveller to win a heavyweight title.
The only thing is, Fury is a disgusting piece of work. Many have called him a religious bigot and he did little to dispel that belief with his comments in an interview with the Mail on Sunday a couple of weeks ago.
The latest in a long line of his vile homophobic comments saw him repeatedly compare homosexuals with paedophiles. He has also been criticised for calling Klitschko a devil-worshipper, although this sounds more like the ranting of an idiot than anything more vicious.
You have, no doubt, heard Fury described as a character and he is, in the same way that Nigel Farage is.
