Wladimir Klitschko has paid upcoming opponent Tyson Fury a major compliment by insisting the November 28 bout will be ‘one of the hardest fights’ of his career.
The 39-year-old heavyweight champion has fought the likes of David Haye and Tony Thompson during his illustrious career but he believes he will face just as tough of a challenge against Fury.
Klitschko, speaking ahead of the rescheduled fight which takes place in Dusseldorf, told Boxing Scene: ‘I think this will be one of the hardest fights of my career.
‘This time the opponent will be taller, heavier, with very long arms, and he is also younger and has great ambitions.
‘This guy really wants to prove himself in the ring and confirm what he keeps telling everyone, that he’s the best in the world.
‘He will be difficult opponent to adjust to, because of his style of fighting and physical conditions. Fans will certainly not be bored.’
Fury and Klitschko were originally scheduled to go head-to-head on October 24, however the champion had to postpone the fight with a calf injury.
Manchester-born Fury decided to put on a show at the original press conference by turning up in a batman costume.
