Tyson Fury to Klitschko: You Let A Fat Man Beat You Shame On You
In a highly entertaining press conference ahead of Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko’s rematch in Manchester this summer – both men were in top form.
I’ve seen a lot of boxing press conferences over the years, but today’s public presser in Manchester between Fury and Klitschko could indeed be the very best of the lot and has really got the pre-fight hype rolling ahead of their fight in Manchester.
It had everything, from journalists launching scathing attacks on Wladimir Klitschko, to Tyson Fury’s usual explosively candid quotes, to even having a moment where Wladimir Klitschko went against his usual polite etiquette and told Fury to: “F*** off.”
Fury at one point stood up, took off his top and said:
“A Fat man that’s who beat you. Shame on you my friend. You let a fat man beat you.”
“A fat man has beaten him and relieved him of all his belts. I don’t take boxing seriously, as you can tell. I don’t care about boxing. It’s mainly about getting a few quid and putting the food on the table. That’s it.”
