'If It's Boxing, It's Vital'

The Champion and the Challenger Meet

October may be some way off still but promoting a heavyweight showdown, especially a long-awaited requires a meticulous build-up.

Today, in Dusseldorf, the first of a series of head-to-head meetings between Wladimir Klischko and Tyson Fury saw the heavyweight duo exchange a few opinions.

Fury, in his own manner, wasted no time in trying to get under the skin of the multi-belt champion, remarking to the Ukrainian,

'It's a personal mission for me to rid boxing of a boring person like you.

'I'm interested in all of them belts you've got on there. I'm interested in breaking your face in. You're boring, I want to rid you out of the heavyweight division.

'You have about as much charisma as my underpants - zero, none.'


Not really the opening gambit you’d expect, but hey-ho.

Continuing, Fury added about his foe,

'I believe he has never faced a challenge like me ever before and I don't think he will face a challenge like me again.

'I'm a unique fighter, one of a kind, there's never been someone like me before in history. A fighter like me only comes around every 1,000 years.

'You go on - you're a sports psychologist, you speak 37 different languages, so what? You're still a robotic person. You're still not exciting and fun to watch. I am the new blood in the division, you are an old man.'


The response from Wladimir was a little more restrained with the Ukrainian remarking,

'I believe Tyson Fury is really meaning what he is talking about and he is definitely not coming here on October 24 just to be present and be on the canvas. No, he came here to win the championship fight.

'This guy is so entertaining. He sings, he dances, he is a cool dude. He does different things that people like - or hate.

'Some people adore you, some people say they can't stand you, which is good.'


It looks like the build-up to this fight is going to be like no other!
