The undisputed heavyweight champion of the world added some laughter to today’s press conference to promote his rematch with Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko.
The undisputed heavyweight champion of the world insisted it is a “disgrace to call me an athlete,” because he is a “fat man.”
Fury whipped of his T-shirt to show off his belly and his “love handles.” The 27-year old proceeded to taunt Klitschko by telling the former heavyweight champion “you lost to a fat man… Shame on you my friend.”
“Does it matter what a pit-bull looks like? Does it (expletive), he’s going to fight. I’m fat as a pig, 30 stone and I can beat him (Klitschko) here and now.”
People can say what they want about Fury, but the man is entertaining and brings laughter to the sport of boxing. The fact the WBA and WBO heavyweight champion is out of shape hasn’t done him no harm so far in his career. He’s 25-0, 18KO’s and the unified heavyweight champion of the world.
