Lars Baron/Bongarts/Getty Images(DUSSELDORF, Germany) -- Tyson Fury dethroned world champion Wladimir Klitschko in an unanimous decision Saturday at ESPRIT Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Klitschko was the favorite to win and the crowd watched in awe as the major upset unfolded.
"This is a dream come true," said an emotional Fury, who broke into in tears after the fight. "We worked so hard for this. I've done it."
Fury also addressed Klitschko in the ring.
"I'd like to say to Wladimir, you're a great champion," Fury said. "And thanks very much for having me. It was all fun and games during the buildup."
Klitschko did not argue the decision.
"Tyson was the faster and better man tonight," Klitschko said. "I felt quite comfortable in the first six rounds, but I was astonished that Tyson was so fast in the second half as well."
