THE RING heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has branded Tyson Fury “a bipolar psychopath” following the pair’s bizarre press conference in west London on Wednesday, which included the unbeaten Brit arriving dressed as Batman and having a staged scrap with an intruder – aka ‘The Joker’.
Klitschko, the WBA, WBO and IBF titleholder, and Fury (24-0, 18 knockouts) were in the English capital to promote their eagerly anticipated Oct. 24 clash in Dusseldorf, Germany. Fair to say, the Manchester man’s madcap antics, all conducted in good taste and with humor, completely stole the lunchtime show.
“That’s the most entertaining conference I have been at in 25 years boxing. It was funny and amusing,” said 39-year-old Klitschko (64-3, 53 KOs). “But a lot of the statements and nonsense that he said is because of the insecurity inside him.
“So I definitely think Tyson Fury is a bipolar psychopath and he needs treatment and that I can make him a better person. I have done the same with a lot of other guys previously and the way of the treatment is the fight. The treatment has already started for him.”
