British heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury has said his upcoming challenge with Wladimir Klitschko will be one of his easiest fights yet.

In a press conference, free from his usual jokey antics, Fury said: "Old guy, young guy. Old champion, new champion. Enough said."

At 6ft 9, Tyson has won all his pro fights, mostly by knock-out, and said this weekend will be no different.

He told ITV News: "Saturday night we'll have a new heavyweight champion or I'll have egg on my face, one of the two."

Hugs from Klopp make Liverpool goalkeeper feel 'good'

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has expressed his satisfaction at receiving a hug from Jurgen Klopp.

The German manager is rather touchy-feely with his players before matches, on the touchline and after the final whistle, when he is often captured hugging each Liverpool star, one-by-one.

And Mignolet believes this sends out the right message, as well as making him feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Speaking to the club's official website, he said:

He’s hugged with all of the players and it gives you a good feeling because it means you know he is behind you and supporting you.

That’s what you need as a player; the confidence of the manager and the whole staff, that they’re behind you and we’re working in the same direction.
