Fury: Klitschko is a bitch, even Manny told me I’d knock him out!

Phil Jay 18/05/2013

Ranked contender Tyson Fury has ripped into his main target Wladimir Klitschko again as the 21-0 bruiser contemplates his next move after stopping Steve Cunningham in New York last month.

The 24 year-old, who has been widely linked to a clash with European champion Kubrat Pulev in late summer, is currently behind WBA title holder Alexander Povetkin in the pecking order to challenge the four-belt champion and made no bones about what would happen in a future meeting.

“I’ll fight that pussy Klitschko any time any place anywhere,” Fury angrily stated to World Boxing News.

“All he has to do is name it and I will ready to rip his heart out and make him quit like the bitch he really is!”

Enjoying sparring sessions with the younger Klitschko on many occasions in the past, Fury was tipped by the late great Manny Steward as the natural successor to Wladimir and brother Vitali as the dominant heavyweight.

Fury says that Wladimir’s former trainer even told him that he would have edge if the two sign on for an explosive encounter and wants the chance to prove it against the world’s best sooner rather than later.

“Manny told us what the outcome would be if I get in the ring with Klitschko and that’s me winning by knockout,” he claimed.

The European Boxing Union have recently called purse bid between Fury and Pulev for the end of this month, a fight that would double as an IBF title eliminator and one that coach Peter is keen on putting together.

If Fury can come through that test he would then become the mandatory challenger to ‘Dr. Steelhammer’ and be in a position to carry out his threat as the outspoken heavyweight looks to depose the Ukrainian from his long-term perch at the top of the division.
