November 28 is a date that boxing fans will never forget, especially if they are fans of Tyson Fury....or Wladimir Klitschko for that matter.
Yes, on November 28 in 2015, The Gypsy King Tyson Fury went to Wladimir Klitschko's own backyard and beat him for the WBA (Super), WBO, IBF, IBO, The Ring magazine, and lineal heavyweight titles.
Arguably Fury's greatest night in the sport and arguably one of the biggest nights in heavyweight boxing history.
This was a Klitschko that was dominant. This was a Klitschko that could simply never lose, especially in his own backyard of Dusseldorf, Germany.
Yes Klitschko was from Ukraine, but the majority of his fights were held in Germany. It was a place he had only lost once in before sharing the ring with Fury, and that was way back in 2003.

Fury went to Germany as the heavy, HEAVY underdog, but one thing is for sure when it comes to Tyson Fury, never ever rule him out.
It's also very important to remember, this wasn't the Wladimir Klitschko that lost to Anthony Joshua in 2018 at Wembley Stadium. Oh no. This was a prime and peak Wladimir Klitschko. It was a Klitschko that had dominated the heavyweight division for nearly 10 years.
The build-up to the fight was spectacular and memorable.
In fact, if you ask a lot of boxing fans, they'd tell you that the fight was won even before November 28. Fury had pulled off an absolute mind game masterclass in the press conferences and in the build up to the fight.
Whether he was dressing up as Batman or just playing with the Ukrainian monster, Tyson Fury had Klitschko on strings and he was living in his head rent free.
Fight night came and with it came controversies. Fury and his team were not happy with a few things going into the fight. The ring itself was an issue, Klitschko's taping of his hands was an issue, and overall, it looked like things were stacked against the Brit.
However, he didn't get knocked out by the Ukrainian and the fight went the distance.
Everyone was saying beforehand that Fury simply wouldn't win on points due to the fight being staged in Germany, but that's exactly what happened by unanimous decision.
Two judges scored the bout 115–112, while the other scored it 116–111 ALL in favour of the British Tyson Fury.
Tyson Fury had done it. He went to Wladimir Klitschko's backyard and defeated him on points. This was Fury's night and his moment, and boy did he take advantage of it.
Of course, we all sadly know what happened in the aftermath of November 28, 2015, but for that night, it was Tyson Fury's night.
Luckily, four years on and Fury is back to doing what he does best - boxing. He sensationally returned to the ring and held Deontay Wilder to a draw in just his third fight back, and he's now ready to do battle with the Bronze Bomber again in the new year.
Whether he gets the job done or not in the rematch is unknown, but one thing is for sure, it will never beat November 28, 2015 in Dusseldorf.News Now - Sport News
