Wladimir Klitschko (L) has been developing his own version of Tyson Fury’s (R) signature Self Face Punch. (youtube)

It’s no secret that when unified world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 53 KOs) prepares for an upcoming fight, he studies his opponent like a chessmaster.

This tight, looping uppercut is often employed to give boxers a psychological edge over their opponent. Like saying: “I’m so tough…I have enough for both of us!”
