Wladimir Klitschko believes Tyson Fury has “mental issues”

Simon Lloyd

Wladimir Klitschko has responded to Tyson Fury’s alarming rant by suggesting that the Mancunian is bipolar.

The Ukranian is due to face Fury in Dusseldorf on November 28 and appears to have been shocked by his extreme views on homosexuality, abortion and paedophilia.


Speaking from a high-altitude training camp in the Tyrol region of Austria, Kitschko described Fury as “bizarre”.

“He is bipolar. He has mental issues for sure,” the Ukrainian said.

“Some comments that come out of his mouth do not work well with me. I’m not commenting on some of them. I will answer those with my fists in the ring, the way I have done many times before.

“I have stopped being surprised by Tyson Fury. He is bizarre.”

With the fight a matter of weeks away, we can expect the pair to trade a few more verbal blows before the first punches are thrown.
