Britain's Tyson Fury has vowed to be "the most charismatic champion since Muhammad Ali" after delivering on his promise to dethrone Wladimir Klitschko and become the new world heavyweight champion.Fury was awarded the fight in Duesseldorf 115-112, 115-112 and 116-111 by the judges Saturday as Klitschko's long reign as world champion was ended after nine years, six months.This was a poor display by Klitschko who managed to finish with cuts to both cheeks while Fury was unmarked.After Fury had problems with ill-fitting gloves in the week leading up to the fight, there was plenty of tension in the buildup Saturday.Then Klitschko was reported to have had his fists wrapped without an observer being present, a no-no in boxing, and when Fury's camp complained, the champion's fists were re-strapped which briefly delayed the start of the fight.
