Tyson Fury’s mega money clash with linear World Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has been postponed from 24th October after “Dr Steelhammer” suffered a calf injury sustained during the course of a training session on Wednesday, it has been announced today.
Klitschko representative Bernd Boente advised disappointed fans that tickets for the initial October date will still be honoured.
Speaking to German newspaper Bild, Boente advised: – “Next week we will make it known when the fight will be restaged, We will definitely remain in Dusseldorf.”
The Postponement follows a highly entertaining press conference to promote the encounter, one which saw the Manchester man at his rambunctious best, dressing as batman and staging a highly amusing brawl with cousin Hughie Fury – also playing the fool whilst dressed as the joker.
It was a somewhat surreal occasion, one which spawned a smile from the champion whilst setting the conspiracy theorists off into a lexical frenzy on social media.
Some individuals have questioned the presence of Klitschko’s proverbial “bottle” when faced with a man clearly not daunted by the challenge of facing him; claiming that a calf injury may be a spurious reasoning for the fight’s current status in order that the champion’s professional credibility takes a minimal blow.
Fury on the other hand has not appeared to concern himself with such speculation, preferring instead to console those affected by the news.
“Don’t feel sorry for me I’ll b ok, I’m sorry for the fans again as they are the biggest losers hear. Flights & hotels travel, sorry” voiced Fury, via his twitter account.
