Boxing

British heavyweight Tyson Fury has claimed that he will retire if he fails to beat Wladimir Klitschko in his next outing.

The Mancunian, who has made such threats before, said he should be beating his illustrious opponent because of his age, with Klitschko approaching 40 and Fury just 27. The pair meet in Germany on October 24.

“If I can’t knock him out then I must be useless,” said Fury.

“If I can’t beat a 40-year-old man, I need banning from boxing. If I can’t, then I won’t be boxing on because I won’t be able to achieve and get my goals. He's been a great champion but [has] not fought anyone of note.

"That's where I come in to it. Every 10, 15 or 20 years there's a man who comes along and wipes everyone out. We're in a bad era of heavyweights but I tell you what I'm looking forward to – going in there and writing this fellow off.”

Formula 1

F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone has questioned Lewis Hamilton’s private life, admitting that the Englishman ‘may have gone too far in recent months’.

Hamilton has been snapped twerking with Rihanna, smoking cigars and turned up to Monza with bleach blonde hair.

Tennis

In tennis Serena Williams has conceded the only player she fears is her sister. The famous siblings will face off against each other in the US Open tomorrow, and though Serena won their last clash she won’t be taking anything for granted.

"For me I'm playing the best player in the tournament, and that's never easy," she said.

"She's beaten me so many times. I've taken a lot of losses off of her - more than anybody.

"She's a player that knows how to win, knows how to beat me, and knows my weaknesses better than anyone.

"It's not very easy. Like I said, for me, she's the only player in the draw I don't want to play - not only because she's my sister but because for me she's the best player."

Rugby

Lastly Jonny Wilkinson has backed George Ford to lead England’s Rugby World Cup charge this year.

England kick-off their tournament against Fiji next Friday, and Wilkinson thinks Ford is the right-man to serve as the Three Lions fly-half.

"The great thing about it is if you play George Ford he will grow and grow and grow in that shirt over a period of time," said Wilkinson.

"But the same thing exactly goes for Owen Farrell.

"Ford's secure at the moment though I think, and they will go into the World Cup really happy with what they've got."
