Manchester boxer Tyson Fury will face off with Wladimir Klitschko at the final press conference ahead of their title bout.

The 27 year old is confident he can become the heavyweight champion of the world in Dusseldorf this weekend. The fight was rescheduled to compensate for a calf injury Klitschko sustained in training.

Last month Fury told Granada:

"It was quite hard to know I was training for such a bit fight and it was off again." He went on, "If I'm afraid of someone then I'm in the wrong sport. That's why I'm not afraid of people and that's why I've won 24 in a row. The proof is in the pudding - unbeaten!"
