Fury calls out the legend of the sport who’s been retired for a while now in a rather left field call out from a man who himself hasn’t boxed in some time.
Vitali Klitschko has appeared in the media quiet a bit this week at the 2017 WBC convention in Baku where he was attending.

As things stand, former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury’s last fight was against Vitali’s brother Wladimir back in 2015 when Fury scored a points win in Germany.
Now he wants a piece of the older brother, and called him out of retirement with the following:
