Fury Claims Klitschkos Behind Conspiracy To Beat Him

By Edward Chaykovsky

Over the years, heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (22-0, 16KOs) has splashed down an arsenal of controversial statements. In a video interview posted Thursday on, Fury alleged that Dereck Chisora possibly had no intention of going forward with their scheduled rematch - and instead he was helping train Alexander Ustinov for the date.

On Monday, Chisora revealed that he fractured his left hand and withdrew from the fight, which was scheduled to take place on Saturday at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester. Two days later Ustinov officially replaced him. Chisora's injury was said to have come during a sparring session with Ustinov from last Friday.

"Maybe [Ustinov] was [training to fight me]. I don't know what's going on behind the scenes. Chisora might not have been going to fight [me] all along and he was using my name to sell tickets and trying to get me beat in the background by training Ustinov and keeping him sparring up until the fight and let him fight me," Fury said.

"For all I know he's been sparring Mariusz Wach down there every day. I don't know anything about it. I think it's all a touchy subject. I think there is a conspiracy going on behind the scenes, to get me bumped off from the heavyweights and put me out of action. We'll see on Saturday night if they can achieve that."

When Fury was asked to reveal the people "behind the conspiracy," he claimed the Klitschko brothers were heavily involved.

"I think the Klitschkos have a big involvement in it, because they don't want to fight me and they are avoiding me," Fury said.

Ha ha ha ha. Funny as fhuck! Fury's not even on Klit's radar, he's a total zero!! Fury's never fought ANY top tier opposition and he thinks Klit's running a conspiracy. Total w4nk3r.

Fury's comments are frightening and show this man is off the rails...for his exciting antics in the ring this man is not good for our sport as he knows no boundaries.

The Klitschkos are trying to throw every member of the K2 roster in front of Fury to protect Wladimir from the Furious One.
