WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring and lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury said in his latest interview that he feels he is challenger Wladimir Klitschko’s ‘bogeyman’, since he has the mental edge over him ahead of the July 9 rematch at the Manchester Arena.
In an interview with Boxnation TV, Fury [25-(18)-0] gave an update on his training camp in the Netherlands, saying he has been training seven days a week to get the weight off that he gained since he won the heavyweight crown from Klitschko in November 2015 in Düsseldorf.
“We usually only train five days a week, but this time, we’re training seven times a week to get the weight off,” said Fury.
“I’ve been killing it in the gym, pumping iron, doing cardio, doing boxing work, sparring, I’ve been sparring twelve rounds four times a week.”
The 27-year-old Fury acknowledged that he is a fan of Klitschko’s [64-(53)-4-(3)] and felt he was a very dangerous opponent but added “he don’t like me, I get under his skin”.
“He hates what I stand for because I am a real man, and he can never be what I am,” said Fury. “I’m Wladimir Klitschko’s bogeyman and I’ve been saying it for a hell of a long time.”
