Trainer: Fury not intimidated by Klitschko

Tyson Fury is not intimidated by the prospect of fighting heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko, according to his coach Peter Fury.

Klitschko, the WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO heavyweight champion, is due to face the British contender on October 24 in Dusseldorf, Germany.

In a chat with Boxing News, Fury's father and trainer Peter said that his son can't wait to face the Ukrainian and was not feeling intimidated at all.

"Tyson's ready, not intimidated by any stretch. He can't wait to get in there. He's really looking forward it.

"We got a very good reception. Klitschko's very professional. That's what we expected. It was very good,” said Fury senior. 

"He's got a good team around him. It's very good doing business with him."

He confirmed that training was going well and everything was going to plan.

"It's going well. We're on form and everything's going to plan," his trainer said. 

"We're getting eight to 10 sparring partners in, all different kinds really."

Fury went on to say that they respected Klitschko but did not expect him to do anything different tactically from his previous fights. 

"I think Klitschko can't really do anything different than what we've seen in 60 odd fights. What he does, he does very well. 

"He'll look to change a few tactics and probably try to put the pressure on, or he could just wait and bide his time. 

"Who knows? It's not really of interest to me what Klitschko's going to do. It's what we need to be doing.

"I predict a very, very good fight," he added.
