Footage has re-emerged of Tyson Fury enjoying himself just hours before he managed to dethrone Wladimir Klitschko of his 10-year reign at the top. 

The video comes from inside a hotel room in Dusseldorf, Germany, the city where the 2015 fight was held.

Fury is standing in his room, rapping to a song, talking about how he will defeat Klitschko, which is something he went on to do of course, winning the fight on points after a tactical 12-round encounter.

He says: "Calm before the storm.

"November 28, 2015, before Tyson Fury went down in history, as undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

"Trying not to show everyone how nervous I really am.

"It's all good baby.

"Does this face look bothered?"

Clearly, Fury has a way of dealing with his nerves.

It seems like this worked, though, as the Brit went on to defeat Klitschko for the heavyweight titles which the Ukrainian had held on to for so long.

Maybe we'll see something like this again ahead of his February 22 fight against Deontay Wilder.

Previous interviews with the Gypsy King have revealed that he is preparing for his battle in pretty unorthodox ways, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him taking up the mic once again to get rid of his pre-match nerves. 

While it might seem pointless, it's a great insight into how these elite-level boxers prepare themselves for their biggest fights, and it's not something we get to see very often.
