After Wladimir Klitschko had to postpone his highly anticipated fight with Tyson Fury due to a leg injury, Fury pretty much laughed it off because he predicted it would happen all along.

And despite anxious fans awaiting the fight, trainer Peter Fury doesn't expect this episode to be a repeat of the David Haye fight that never took place, with Haye pulling out of the fight twice. He's confident that Tyson will eventually get Wladimir between the ropes.

"To be fair on Tyson we had the David Haye scenario twice, but Wladimir Klitschko is no David Haye," Fury exclusively told World Boxing News.

"We are used to all this anyway - you know, but we've always got to look at if there is any antics being played to try and disrupt our camp in any way, so we are fully aware of what could go on."

"We are looking at that they are very genuine people, so I just hope that they reschedule as soon as possible and get the fight on," he added.

While both sides are still trying to work out a rescheduled date, it's quite possible that the fight gets put off until early 2016 should Sky Sports be unable to fit them into a late November date.
