War of Words: Klitschko vs. Fury
“His comments made me sick,” said Klitschko. “As for calling me a devil-worshipper, that’s just stupid.”

“His comments made me sick,” said Klitschko. “As for calling me a devil-worshipper, that’s just stupid.”
“His comments made me sick. It is disgusting,” said Dr. Steelhammer. “As for calling me a devil-worshiper, that’s just stupid.”

On November 28 at ESPRIT arena in Düsseldorf, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany, WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 53 KOs), from Kiev, Ukraine, by way of Zhangiztobe, Kazakhstan, defends his titles against undefeated Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs), from Wilmslow, Cheshire, United Kingdom.

With the temperature rising as fight night nears, Fury has building the gate like an old pro, resorting to antics which, while at times ludicrous, mysteriously resonate.

After appearing as Batman at a recent presser, an appearance which included knocking Klitschko’s championship belts to the floor and wrestling with someone dressed as The Joker, many wondered, with a mixture of fear and amusement, what Tyson Fury would do next.

They didn’t have long to wait.

During an interview with The Mail over the weekend, Fury revealed his serious side.

He spoke about his relationship to God, the approaching apocalypse, and sensitive issues like homosexuality, abortion, and pedophilia.

It was a far cry from the frolics that preceded it and Fury’s views, while shared by others, aren’t altogether in the mainstream.

“We live in an evil world,” said Fury. “The devil is very strong at the minute, very strong, and I believe the end is near. The bible tells me the end is near. The world tells me the end is near. Just a short few years, I reckon, away from being finished.”

The world may be close to being finished. Only time will tell. That same can’t be said for Tyson Fury.

“Goliath was a champion,” he said, “a monster who had never been beaten, and then this young guy, David, came forward, a child who believed in God and did it. God gave him the power. What was right will always prevail over wrong. Good will always prevail over evil. I see that in me versus Klitschko. To be honest with you, I know Klitschko is a devil-worshipper.”

Talking about God is one thing. Calling Klitschko a “devil-worshipper” is another.

Many are up in arms at Fury’s remarks. Not least among them is Wladimir Klitschko.

“His comments made me sick,” said Klitschko. “It is disgusting. It has nothing to do with the promotion. It just shows what is inside Tyson Fury.

“We live, thank God, in a democratic world and people have a right to an opinion. But people need to respect each other.

“As for calling me a devil-worshiper, that’s just stupid.”
