Tyson Fury: I Want To Do Serious Damage To Pajkic

TYSON FURY has vowed to make ­Neven Pajkic suffer when they finally meet in a grudge match in ­Manchester on Saturday night.

Fury defends his Commonwealth heavyweight ­title against the Canadian and it’s safe to say the two fighters will not be exchanging Christmas cards.

The Manchester-born British champion, unbeaten in 16 professional bouts, wants to make Pajkic pay for insulting him when they met last year.

The 23-year-old recalled: “I went ringside with ­Pajkic and said we should have a fight. He then chucked a dirty ring towel at me.

“He said we could fight there and then, and everyone jumped in and held us back. It was pantomime.

“Pajkic said some insulting things about me and my family. It wasn’t right and it annoyed me.”

The Romany gypsy added: “I went on TV in Canada and said exactly what I thought of Pajkic. From there it went ­really personal.

“It sounds ­terrible, but I am in the mood to do serious ­damage to him.”

The pair meet at EventCity in Manchester and Fury added: “I’m going to punish him. I’m going to make him suffer.

“Unlike in other fights when I’ve got the ­beating of someone and I finish them off, I’m going to stand off and tease him.

“It’s a gruesome sport. If I cut him, I’m going to work on it. I want to make him quit.

“I’ll be trying to put my fist through the back of his head. I’ll be trying to break his ribs and make them stick out the other side.

“I don’t like this kid. This kid has said some terrible things and I aim to make him pay.”

Bosnian-born Pajkic, 34, is also unbeaten in his 16 pro fights.

He said: “He talks too much and says rubbish things. But the best place to talk is in the ring.”

FURY v Pajkic is live on Channel 5 tomorrow from 9.45pm.
