Tyson Fury took the opportunity to rip into former rival David Haye ahead of his heavyweight world title showdown with Wladimir Klitschko.
Fury heads to Dusseldorf on October 24 to take on Klitschko in an attempt to end his reign as the king of the heavyweight division.
While the champion is the favourite to hold on to his belts, it is widely acknowledged that his latest British opponent will cause him more problems than many of his previous foes in recent years.
Nevertheless, after Haye pulled out of two scheduled bouts with Fury due to injury, the 27-year-old still seemingly hasn’t forgiven him after putting his career on hold for a significant period of time.
Haye went to Germany to take on Klitschko himself in 2011, but fell to a defeat on points and blamed a toe injury as a reason behind his inability to fully express himself in the ring.
This isn’t the first time that Fury has mocked his fellow Brit over the incident, but he is confident that he will be able to put on a better show and more competitive fight when he takes on the ageing champion.
The mandatory challenger is deep in training camp and has even drafted up a special regime for what will be the biggest fight of his career to date, while Klitschko has promised to deliver some ‘therapy’ to him after what he has perceived to be an insulting approach towards him which included a disrespectful showing at a press conference in Dusseldorf last month, as reported by Sky Sports.
