TYSON FURY already has the edge over Wladimir Klitschko – after outlasting him in the sauna.

The unbeaten Morecambe heavyweight floored Martin Rogan twice in a fifth-round stoppage in Belfast on Saturday to keep on track for a world title shot.

Fury’s promoter Mick Hennessy believes a showdown with WBA, IBF and WBO champion Klitschko is still a year off, with the Ukrainian set to defend his crown against American Tony Thompson on July 7.

The 6ft 9in gypsy giant, 23, is not only three inches taller than Klitschko, 36, but has been boosted by outdoing him in a contest to see who could last longest in the sauna.

He said: “I believe I’ve got one over on him already. We had a sauna competition at his training camp in Austria in October and I mentally broke him down. I almost passed out before I got out. We were in there with a few of his training team and everyone was getting out after 10 minutes.

“Me and him stayed in. It got to 15 minutes and I was having to count down the seconds in my head to get through it.

“Eventually he got up in a huff and walked out without speaking.

“I’m ready to fight anyone in the world right now. If my promoter wants me to fight Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko in the morning, I will do it, but things can’t be done like that. It’s a long process. I’m going up in the world and Wladimir has mentioned me as a possible opponent.”

Hennessy is planning for Fury to face an American opponent when he returns to action on June 30.

But walds only fights shorter men so fighting fury will be his hardest fight for a long while. David price is the next big talent. Fury bottled it when price called him out

[QUOTE=Superflo777]Agree. I'm already looking forward to his fight. Fury would tower over Wladimir just as Wlad towered over Haye.[/QUOTE] Its only 2inches mate, hardly towering.
