TYSON FURY claims Wladimir Klitschko has agreed to fight him next year – and the ­British boxer has vowed to knock him out in Germany.

The Morecambe heavyweight must first get past American Kevin Johnson in Belfast on Saturday but says his team has already had talks with the Ukrainian world No.1.

Fury, 24, is chasing a scrap with Wladimir – the WBA, WBO and IBF champion – rather than his elder brother Vitali, the WBC king.

The 6ft 9ins gypsy giant is up to third in the WBC rankings and Vitali, 41, is pondering hanging up his gloves for a career in politics.

But Fury is concentrating his efforts on securing a crack at Wladimir, 36, ­rather than waiting for a shot at the vacant WBC title should Vitali retire.

Fury insists when he fights Wladimir it will be totally different to the points loss fellow Briton David Haye – currently ­appearing in ITV’s I’m a ­Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! – suffered to Dr Steelhammer last year.

He said: “We’ve made contact and Wladimir has said we can do the fight whenever. I read he might be fighting Alexander Povetkin in early 2013 but we’ll be looking to take him after that.

“I want it in May or June – as soon as possible. The quicker the better ­because I’m in tremendous shape. Mark my words now, I will beat Wladimir Klitschko for sure. I will go to Germany to do it. I don’t want to fight him in England, I don’t want it in Ireland, I don’t want it in the US. I want it in Hamburg or Berlin. Wherever he wants it in Germany, he can have it.

“I want to be a total underdog, I don’t want anything on my side. I’m going to go over there and I’m going to wreck him. I don’t want a points decision. He will get knocked out for sure.

“I don’t want to fight any other idiots in the division, it’s Wladimir or ­nobody.

“I’ve no interest in fighting Vitali. I’m not interested in fighting an old guy who is on the slide.

“I think Vitali will retire in December. The WBC title is going to be vacant and Chris Arreola will fight for it against either Denis Boytsov or Jonathan Banks.

“But I want to fight the No.1 in the division with all the belts.

“Why fight for one when I can fight for all of them against Wladimir?”

The ex-British champion was ­nominated to face Russian ­Boytsov in a semi-eliminator for the WBC belt. But the fight fell through to leave Fury against Johnson, 33, who was ­outpointed by Vitali three years ago.

He said: “Johnson is better than Boytsov. He has a tighter defence.

“I’m not interested in Boytsov ­because he refused to fight me next week. I’ve taken his ranking at No.3 with the WBC now.”

Big talk from a big underdog.

Klitchko easily knocks out Fury,pathetic mismatch but we should be used to that by now.

comment by Earl Hickey, on 11-25-2012
He's got as much of a Writ to fight Wlad as did Messers, Wach, Mormeck and Thompson he will lose but he's only a 24 year old baby so it will be good experiance for him

Just talk. Fury will avoid Wlad & hunt the vacant wbc belt like all the others.

[QUOTE=knockoutking565]How can you keep someone at the end of a jab when there left arm is at their waist, out of 3 jabs wlad would throw he would only land 1 and the other 2 would graze the top of haye's head or the sides, when you watch it live it looks like its the jab that keeps haye away bu...
