The media outing began in a jovial mood for the challenger as he arrived dressed as Batman, but things soon turned heated as Klitschko labelled him a clown.
While Fury had to be restrained by his camp in order to avoid making a scene at the press conference, things calmed down soon after as the pair went head-t0-head.
Klitschko and Fury exchanged a few words before separating, and it has all undoubtedly built more interest in the bout which takes place in Dusseldorf on October 24.
The reigning heavyweight king puts his WBA, WBO and IBF belts on the line and has insisted that he will dish out some ‘therapy’ to his rival, as reported by Sky Sports. However, it doesn’t seem to have fazed Fury at all given that the outspoken Brit responded by insisting that he would ensure that this is Klitschko’s last bout of a storied career in the ring.
Fury is expected to produce the toughest test for Klitschko in some time, but it remains to be seen whether or not his talking has backfired and has merely motivated the champion.
