Fury-Klitschko II: Full Press Conference

Today's presser featuring Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko featured some choice words from both sides. That's probably to be expected from Fury, but Klitshcko, not so much.

Today's press conference announcing the rematch between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko was an interesting one. Wladimir was in rare form, and Tyson Fury responded in a manner you might expect. Here are some excepts from the presser:

Wladimir Klitschko:

"In the past months, I was going through a lot of emotions, analyzing certain thing that I can confirm - I made a mistake in the fight with Fury...and that mistake cost me titles. Of course it's not so easy to fight a challenger with great skills that Fury has, obviously, otherwise he wouldn't take the titles. Aside from that, [there's] many people out there who are looking forward to having a champion that represents the sport in a certain way, in a good way, and also myself that I can look up to and say 'you know what, he's doing a great job,' I'm okay with that.

"I'm not okay with that. What comes out of Fury's mouth, and statements, he's [made] a lot of statements that are disrespectful. For example, I will not say a lot but will be very short in my speech, that all homosexual men and women and pedophiles belong to the same place - jail, basically. All the women belong in the kitchen and on their back - so that's basically where he sees Elton John and The Queen [of England].

"To people that say and think the same way out there, and to you Fury, I want to say...Fuck Off! Thank you."

Tyson Fury:

"Seems like Wladimir has found his bollocks from somewhere...have a day off, Wlad, will ya?

"'First of all, I want to thank everybody for coming, does anyone else need a blow job? Because thank you camera man, thank you arena for having us, it's such a great day' [Fury said mocking Klitschko]. Pussy.

"What can I say, he got beat the first time fair and square. Listen, he can make all the excuses - 'I was having a bad day, my fingernail broke,' who gives a shit what happened to your fingernails? You got beat fair and square the first time, in Germany, on your own turf, in front of all your own people, on your own TV station. And you got whooped, let's face it. You're gonna have to come about 1000x better because you landed about four shots in twelve rounds mate.

"And that, to me, you might go down as a Hall of Fame fighter but you're a Hall of Dog Shit fighter in my eyes. If a super champion can't land on a big fat lazy Gippo with a loud mouth, what type of super champion is he? He must be a shit one. So the reason why he was so victorious in eleven years is because he never fought anybody who had a pair of bollocks to fight back. He always fought men who didn't wanna win, just turning up for the money. But when Team Fury bulled through the doors in Germany, he knew he couldn't get away with his cheating antics. He's cheating with his ring, the gloves, so many bullshit things that he had to do to try to win. But as soon as that went down he knew he couldn't win because when it's fair and square he can't win - simple.

"And the outcome of this fight is gonna be different, I'm gonna knock him out inside a round, so, there we are. Just to show how shit he really is. And I know no 40-year-old born from his mother can beat Tyson Fury, 27, boom, 'nuff said."
