Fury predicting one of his 'easiest fights' against Klitschko


Tyson Fury joked about being nervous ahead of his bout with Wladimir Klitschko before predicting one of his "easiest fights".

Fury will take on WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Klitschko in Dusseldorf on Saturday and the pair appeared at a pre-fight media conference on Tuesday.

Klitschko boasts a 64-3 record, his last defeat coming against Lamon Brewster in April 2004.

But Fury, who has a 24-0 record, feels confident he can exploit weaknesses in Klitschko's technique.

"I am nervous, I am very anxious, all these people and cameras are making me shy," Fury said while sporting a smile. "I am shaking. I hope it is giving Wlad confidence.

"I think this is going to be one of my easiest fights. I know that sounds crazy because he's a super champion, but I see so many chinks in his armours.

"There's nothing he does that worries me. I'm attracted to him in every way. There are so many things he doesn't do very well and we'll see what I'm talking about on Saturday night."

Klitschko, meanwhile, was characteristically reserved in his comments.

"I have faced many fighters that were different," he said. "This time, I have a colourful guy who's young and wants the real challenge.

"I heard him say he's nervous, which means he's well prepared, which means he is alert. I'm nervous before every fight, this is fact. I always faced so many challenges.

"I am really happy that this fight is taking stage. We will see each other at the workout, the weigh-in and eventually the fight.

"I want to say thank you to the fans following this fight and it will be a sold out stadium."
