Tyson Fury has done his best to wind up Wladimir Klitschko in the build up to their fight on November 28, and it didn’t stop on Tuesday.
The pair came face-to-face in a press conference in Germany as the countdown continues to fight night, and Fury continued to mock his rival while Klitschko remained silent throughout.
With the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight world titles on the line, Fury will be aiming to end Klitschko’s reign as the king of the division and has insisted that he is bigger, stronger and faster than any opponent that the Ukrainian has faced previously.
In contrast, the champion remains defiant that he will be able to overcome his latest challenger and will look to silence his rival on the night after plenty of trash talk in the last few months.
It is an exciting period for heavyweight boxing with Anthony Joshua taking on Dillian Whyte on December 12, while David Haye announced his return to the ring for January 16 and was involved in a heated clash with Mark De Mori on Tuesday.
Deontay Wilder is scheduled to fight on the same night, but naturally the landscape of the division will change significantly if Fury returns to the UK with the three belts after this weekend.
While many accept that this will be the most difficult test that Klitschko has faced in years, it remains to be seen whether or not Fury’s lack of experience against elite level fighters works against him on the night.
The 27-year-old isn’t short of confidence and has promised to start the fight quickly, but that is easier said than done as Klitschko has been here many times before and will look to use all of his experience to negate the threat that his opponent possesses.
