Tyson Fury remains confident he will end the career of a 'mentally broken' Wladimir Klitschko when they meet in the ring on November 28.
The Ukrainian is putting his WBA Super, WBO and IBF world heavyweight titles on the line against the Briton, but despite his unflappable persona, Fury reckons there are cracks in the veneer.
"I'd say he needs to take it seriously, with this being the last fight of his career. He'll definitely be needing to take it very, very serious," Fury told Sky Sports.
"If he wants to go out with any sort of reputation left at all, he'll have to take it deadly serious. I intend to send him out in tatters, to be honest, because he's mentally weak.
"He's mentally being broken down in the build-up and he will be mentally broken down even more the closer the fight comes.
"Everything's strictly business for him. Everything must be perfect. We know life doesn't run smoothly or perfect and he's in for a rude awakening on November 28."
