TYSON FURY claims Wladimir Klitschko will refuse to fight him for the WBO heavyweight title.
Fury faces current WBO international and European champion Dereck Chisora on July 26 at Manchester Arena for the right to challenge Klitschko.
But unbeaten Fury insists Klitschko will duck at fight with him, even if he comes through the bout with Chisora with his perfect record still intact.
“Klitschko will not happen, just like I said David Haye was not going to happen,” Fury, 25, said.
“Klitschko is a p*ssy, he is not a bum. He just does not want to fight. I want to fight him.
“Even before I was on his level I knew he was not going to fight me.”
Fury, who previously trained alongside Klitschko in 2010, claims the Ukraine superstar will avoid the potential dust-up and follow the advice of his late trainer Emanuel Steward
“He would not spar with me as all he kept hearing was Emanuel saying ‘this is the heir to your throne’ and ‘within two years he is going to take your title’," he added.
“Anything Emanuel said he took it as gospel, so he is not going to go back on his word.”
