Heavyweight Tyson Fury insists that he is only three fights away from becoming World Champion and believes he is on course to dethrone Wladimir Klitschko.

Fury recently earned his 23rd career victory and extended his unbeaten run with a points victory over fellow Brit Dereck Chisora.

The Mancunian’s win meant that he is now the mandatory challenger for Klitschko’s WBO crown and he is keen to arrange a meeting with the Ukrainian.

However, the 26-year-old feels that Klitschko, who also holds the WBA and IBF titles is looking to try and avoid him at every possibility.

If the 38-year-old tries to swerve Fury’s advances then he has already mapped out a plan to continue his climb towards the top of the division.

The southpaw has mapped out a 3-step plan, which sees him fight a yet to be named opponent in February before going on to fight for the belts.

Fury said: “If Klitschko, who is 38, retires soon then all those belts are going to become vacant.

“So it’s going to be my mission to get all of those belts. And next month you’ve got Bermane Stiverne defending his WBC world title against Deontay Wilder in America.

“I win on February 28th, I win over Klitschko for most of the belts and then I win over Stiverne or Wilder, there done it. And it’s very capable of being done.

“Whatever happens, if I fight Klitschko or not, this is my time now. The brothers [Vitali and Wiladimir] have had their era and I will build my own empire.”
