Tyson Fury has fired shots at Wladimir Klitschko for comments made by the Ukrainian ahead of his fight with Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday night.

Millions from all over the world are set to tune in for the biggest fight of the 21st century, with both Fury and Usyk looking to become undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.


The bout had been due to take place in December, only to be delayed with the Briton needing more time to recover from his narrow win over Francis Ngannou.

It was then pushed back to February, only for an eye injury sustained by Fury in sparring to lead to yet another delay.



Fury's eye injury has since healed but there's a possibility it could open up again when he returns to the ring on Saturday.

Speaking to Sky Sports, however, the 35-year-old insists it would be 'fantastic' if that happened.

"The cut, it is what it is. If it opens up in the fight, fantastic," he said.

"It's not like I've not been cut before is it?"

Klitschko, who lost to Fury back in November 2015, has previously suggested Usyk should target his wounded eye.

Yet the Gypsy King has now mocked his former foe for his comments, insisting his advice isn't good enough.

"I heard Klitschko say a way how to beat me is target the cutthat's not going to beat me," he continued.

"What are you going to do? Cause some blood to come out, a bit of blood on me. Some blood trickling down my face, that isn't going to stop me.

"I just hope the referee lets me get a cut eye, if it happens.

"You need an army to stop me. Never mind a cut eye."

Fury and Usyk are both putting their reputations on the line, with neither fighter yet to lose a professional bout.

The Briton has won 34 of his 35 career fights, with a draw against Deontay Wilder back in 2018 the only time he's failed to reign supreme.

As for Usyk, the 37-year-old has won all 21 of his boutswith the Ukrainian also beating Anthony Joshua twice in the past.

Yet Fury is adamant he'll come out on top and consolidate his reputation as one of the best heavyweights of all time.

"Why will I win? Because it's what I do. I win, win, win no matter what. I've always won," he continued.

"What I deliver is victories. Whether it's by an inch or a mile, I deliver every time.

"I've had 16 years as a pro, I've been delivering my whole life. They should call me the midwife because I always deliver."

On tactics, he added: "I'm sure SugarHill Steward, his trainer has got an idea for what he wants me to do in the fight.

"For me, I'll figure it out when I get in there. I've seen many styles before.

"I've fought orthodox and southpaws, tall, short, fat, thin… I've fought them all.



"So I'll figure it out when I get in there."

The bout is expected to take place at roughly 11pm on Saturday night.

That will relieve British boxing fans, with many having to stay up until past midnight when Anthony Joshua beat Ngannou in Saudi Arabia in March.
