Fury raised eyebrows with another bizarre performance at the press conference.

Published Add your comment

Wladimir Klitschko has hit out at Tyson Fury over the Briton's controversial remarks about homosexuals and women.

Fury, who beat Ukrainian veteran Klitschko on points last November in Germany to become world heavyweight champion, has provoked outrage by equating homosexuality and abortion with paedophilia and saying a woman's "best place is on her back"'.

The two fighters meet again in a July 9 rematch at the Manchester Arena, with the WBO and WBA belts Fury claimed from Klitschko back on the line.

Out for revenge

And at a press conference at the venue on Wednesday, Klitschko said of his revenge mission that he looked forward to there being "a champion that represents the sport in a good way and can be looked up to".

The 40-year-old then said: "I'm not okay with what comes out of Fury's mouth, his statements.

"For example - that all homosexual men and women and paedophiles belong in the same place, in jail basically. That all women belong in the kitchen and on their back.

"So that is basically where he sees Elton John and the Queen.

"To all people who say the same and think the same way out there, and to you Fury - I want to say f*** off."

Slanging match continues 

Fury, 27, responded by drawing attention to the fact that Klitschko had sworn and doing a mocking impersonation of him - before labelling him a "p***y", then throwing further, foul-mouthed abuse at his opponent.

"He can make all the excuses - 'I was having a bad day, my fingernail broke,'" Fury said.

Tyson Fury & Wladimir Klitschko Head to Head Press Conference

"Who gives a s**t what happened to your fingernails? You got beaten fair and square the first time in Germany. You got whupped.

"You will need to be about 1,000 times better because you landed about four shots in 12 rounds.

"You might be going down as a Hall of Fame fighter, but you are a hall of dogs**t fighter in my eyes.

"If the super champion can't land on a big, fat, lazy gypsy with a loud mouth, what kind of super champion is he? He must be a s**t one."
