If you haven’t already heard or seen, Tyson Fury was at the final press conference with his rival Wladimir Klitschko in a Batman suit. Not only did he come out his luxury car like Bruce Wayne before the press conference, he even had a prop of Batman’s arch nemesis the Joker show up.
Fury had the Joker show up and as he did, Fury, playing the role of Batman, jumped over the press conference table, tackled, wrestled and eventually subdued the Joker. In the process, he told Wladimir Klitschko the following.
“That’s how you will be looking when you face me on October 24. He is a fool, just like you are!” said Fury.
Fury is probably the closest to best odds in terms of a Klitschko opponent in many years. Klitschko is listed as only a 3-1 favorite against the 6’9’ heavyweight and for good reason. Fury is probably the most skilled big heavyweight that Klitschko has seen in his years of dominating the heavyweight division. Much like his other U.K. foe David Haye, Fury can talk with the best of them.
You’ve never fought a Gypsy King before. I cannot wait,” he said. “Welcome to my city, welcome to my town, UK baby.”
Fury says he wants to rid the world of the boring Klitschko.
“It’s a very personal mission for me to rid boxing of a boring person like you. I’ve fallen asleep listening to you. You have as much charisma as my underpants, zero, none. You are a robotic person who is not exciting to watch. Jab, jab, hold, that’s all you do. You are boring, and all of Europe wants to see you get beaten.”
One can say Fury was more Joker than Batman at the press conference as he went on and on taking shots at Klitschko and his trainer Johnathan Banks at the presser.
“You have a chin like a piece of glass, and when I hit it, it will explode like this glass against that wall. What am I afraid of? A man who has had 20 defenses against bums? I’m not interested in your titles; I’m only interested in breaking your face in.”
But come on October 24th, will Fury be more Dark Knight and end the Klitschko reign or just another Joker, who falls at the feet of the king of the heavyweight division.
