Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury got involved in a war of words when they were on a TV interview before their World Heavyweight Championship fight scheduled for 28th Nov, 2015, in Germany. Finally, it was Tyson’s verbal jabs which seemed to have got a lot of attention to a smiling yet bewildered Wladimir.
Tyson Fury, boasting his changes to win, said that in Germany, the world would change as they would have the most charismatic, most colorful and the most controversial heavyweight champ since the days of Muhammad Ali. The world has been waiting for this day quite long. The world needs me to change the landscape of the division.
“I’m so worried,” replied Klitschko in a sarcastic manner. The show called ‘Klitschko vs Fury:The Gloves Are Off’ was hosted by Johnny Nelson, the former world cruiserweight champion Johnny Nelson. The show was shot before the champ from Ukraine pulled out of the original date of 24th October because of a calf injury.
During the show, Fury, sporting a flamboyant checked suit, eerily predicted that Wladimir would withdraw. He said, “I’ve got to ease off you now. I remember when I put it on David Haye strong with heavy talking twice, he pulled out. So I’d better back off in case Wladimir Klitschko gets the jitters and doesn’t turn up.”
Meanwhile, Wladimir Klitschko, who holds a PhD in sports science, told his opponent that he was “an experienced therapist”. If you want to have a bet on Klitschko vs Fury, look out for our pre-match preview which will feature all the latest odds and opinion.
