Fury attempts to rattle his opponent who steps in for Chisora…
Tyson Fury came face-to-face with Alexander Ustinov on Friday ahead of their heavyweight clash at the Phones4u Arena in Manchester on Saturday night.
After Dereck Chisora’s withdrawal due to a fractured hand, Ustinov steps in to face Fury with promoter Frank Warren suggesting that he will reschedule the original bout for October, provided Fury comes through unscathed.
The 25-year-old has been in confident mood all week despite the fact that he is facing a completely different proposition on Saturday night, and after previously directing his ire at both Chisora and the press in the past fortnight, he saved a salvo for his next opponent on Friday too.
Fury proceeded to mock his opponent despite the fact that he did not understand English, insisting that he would knock him out when they enter the ring in just over 24 hours.
Ustinov smiled as Fury continued to make jokes at his expense, and it remains to be seen whether or not the Belarusian is capable of pulling off a shock.
