Fury Regrets Batman Stunt, Says it Scared B*tch Klitschko

TYSON FURY called Wladimir Klitschko a “b*tch” after the WBO, IBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight champion postponed their October showdown.

Klitschko, 39, was forced to withdraw from the Dusseldorf clash after tearing a tendon in his left calf during training on Thursday.

But the unbeaten Fury does not believe the champion is really injured and fears his antics at Wednesday’s press conference in London has scared him off.

Fury, 27, arrived as Batman and wrestled with a man dressed as ‘The Joker’ before threatening to fight Klitschko there and then after the Ukrainian called him a “clown”.

The Manchester-born traveler saw two fights with British rival David Haye fall through in 2013 and 2014 after the former heavyweight champion pulled out with injuries.

Fury said: “It is horrible to be ‘Mr Right’. It was Wednesday and I stood face to face with him and I knew he wouldn’t fight me.

“I said to Klitschko ‘I’m going to have to back off you now because I think you’re going to pull out of this fight’.

“What I saw in him, I saw the same thing in David Haye and I knew he wasn’t going to fight.

“You have to wonder what is going through their minds, am I that intimidating? Am I that scary? Batman worked a treat then and cost me a big fight.”

The fight is set to be rescheduled for late November at the Espirit Arena in Dusseldorf with the exact date to be confirmed next week.

But Fury called Klitschko a “b**ch” on Twitter and does not believe the Ukrainian is actually injured.

He said: “Let’s hope he reschedules, but whatever Klitschko’s reasons are I can tell you there is no injury.

“He either needs more time to prepare or more time to get his mind straight. There is definitely not an injury, definitely not.”

Klitschko, who has reigned as heavyweight king since 2006, was doing some routine exercises in the gym when the injury occurred.

He said: “Especially after the exciting press conference last Wednesday, I was looking forward to this fight very much.

“I am so sorry that I am not able to fight on October 24. I also apologize to my opponent, who has spent many weeks preparing for this fight. I will do my very best to recover as fast as possible.”

[QUOTE=Travycat;16082587]LOL Fury is suuuuuch a bozo. I'm excited for this fight, but he isn't even Klitschko's toughest opponent to date. Not by a long shot. Wladimir gives him the same emotionless stare down every press conference and he's saying he…
