Ever the entertainer, British boxing heavyweight Tyson Fury stunned his next opponent Wladimir Klitschko when he showed up to today’s press conference dressed as Batman.
Fury (24-0) pulled up in London in a flashy Lamborghini, before jogging into the hall dressed as the ‘Caped Crusader’ and doing a lap of honour around the room, much to the amusement of the assembled press.
And, to be fair, the 27-year-old’s antics did manage to draw a rueful smile and a clap from world heavyweight champ Klitschko (64-3).
Things only got more ridiculous from there, as The Joker showed up and Fury leapt over the table to wrestle him to the ground and eject him.
Klitschko, watching the whole bizarre scene unfold, remarked: “I’ve never had such an entertaining press conference!”
Eventually, Fury got changed into a dapper three-piece suit and returned to the press conference, jokingly apologising for being late, before launching into his usual trash talk tirade about the champion.
Fury said: “I can already tell you’re afraid because you’ve got the biggest gloves possible,” to which Klitschko simply responded: “I’ll let my fists talk.”
And let’s just say there were no smiles and jokes when these two faced off for the cameras!

Fury challenges Klitschko for his five world heavyweight titles on October 24 in Germany.
Whether the fight itself will be anywhere near as entertaining as the promotion remains to be seen!
