‘I must break you’ was a popular term coined in the iconic Rocky movies series, when Russian heavyweight destroyer Ivan Drago uttered the icy words to Sylvester Stallone in Rocky IV.
Well, fast forward a few years and switch fictional heavyweight tales to a potential real life heavyweight title collision between two undefeated champions, and the phrase has rather entertainingly popped up again, with Tyson Fury putting his own unique twist on it:
