Tyson Fury to Wladimir Klitschko: It will be “easiest fight” to date


Unbeaten world title challenger Tyson Fury believes Wladimir Klitschko will be one of his EASIEST fights – and SNIFFED him as they squared up.

The charismatic Manc giant kept the message short and sweet for Klitschko, as he bids to become world champion for the first time in Dussledorf this weekend.

And he told the Kazakhstan-born champ: “I’m coming fast, Wlad.”

Looking relaxed in his tartan suit while on the stage, Fury insisted that he has seen faults in Klitschko which make him confident of upsetting the odds and maintaining his unbeaten record.

Fury said: “I think this is gonna be one of my easiest fights.”

“I see so many chinks in the armour. There’s nothing he does that makes me afraid and that I can’t win.

“I can expose what he doesn’t do very good and we’ll see on Saturday night what I’m talking about.”

The initial fight between the pair was called off due to an injury worry for Klitschko.

Fury began this press conference by mimicking his opponent.

He said: “I was injury free for the whole camp. I ate, sleeped, drank water and ate my vitamins, so I should be good come fight night.

“But I’m really anxious and nervous”

Fury quickly turned the mood serious, however, stating: “I don’t wanna say too much as I don’t want to scare him off. If I say too much he doesn’t show up.

“Like I said, I’m coming, and I’m coming fast Wlad.

“Old guy, young guy, I’m coming. Enough said.”

Klitschko’s act was a complete contrast to Fury’s. It was more of a cordial meeting, in which he thanked fans for their support before shaking the hand of his challenger.

He said: “This time I have very colourful guy, who is young and wants to face the challenge.

“He says he’s nervous. It’s good. I’m nervous before every fight. I’m really happy this fight is taking stage on Saturday night.
