With less than a week until Tyson Fury’s blockbuster clash with heavyweight kingpin Wladimir Klitschko, WBN spoke to trainer and uncle Peter about what we can expect leading up to the fight.
Klitschko (64-3, 53 KO) has not lost since 2004 – a knockout loss to Lamon Brewster – but has since gone unbeaten, picking up the IBF, IBO, WBO and WBA super world titles.
Manchester’s Fury (24-0, 18 KO) is the latest to try and dethrone the 6’6” Ukrainian and a large Fury camp has travelled to Dusseldorf, fully confident their undefeated fighter will soon be crowned champion.
“The preparations are all done, all the training and hours of hard work are all complete. It’s fight week now and we are ready to relax and enjoy it,” Peter Fury exclusively told World Boxing News.
“Everything is in place for Tyson to become champion. We have 40 of our direct family in Germany for the big fight and it’s all pure enjoyment. We aren’t nervous, it’s about being professional and confident – Tyson is as ready as he will ever be.
“This week, there will be loads of media and press coverage, so a lot going on, all part of the job. Tyson relishes the experience and of course he is an entertainer – he always has some things up his sleeve.”
In regard to the fight, Peter is not concerned about it taking place in Germany and is prepared for whatever Klitschko has to offer.
He said: “I’m not worried about it being in Germany, you have to fight for your life to win over there. if it goes anywhere close, you can’t expect to get the decision over the champion in Germany – no chance. Anyway, Tyson would rather go out on his back than lose on points, he won’t leave anything in the ring.
“We have been training for almost 5 months for this fight and we are ready, as ready as we could ever be. I’m confident in our game plan and we can adjust as we go along. We have ten irons in the fire for whatever Klitschko decides to turns up.”
