Tyson Fury ready to release “wild” side

British heavyweight Tyson Fury has vowed to be like a “wild animal” when he gets the chance to take on Wladimir Klitschko on November 28.

The Brit opted to swerve the chance to take on Deontay Wilder and will instead go toe-to-toe with the 39-year-old Dr Steelhammer.

The highly-anticipated meeting was initially scheduled for October 24 but has since been pushed back to the November date due to an injury to the Ukrainian.

Klitschko suffered a problem with his left calf muscle during his training camp and he is now getting his training regime back on track for the new date in Dusseldorf.

The Ukrainian is putting his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles on the line as Fury looks to prove his worth at the highest level.

Fury is currently unbeaten in his 24 bouts, picking up 18 knockouts in the process, while his opponent has been defeated on three of his 67 trips to the ring.

The 27-year-old insists he has a few tricks to find a way to get past Klitschko, and has vowed to come at the defending champion with an animal-like aggression.

Fury said: “Just expect a wild animal.

“[I’ll be a] Tiger, a lion, a bear, whatever you like. Have I ever shown weakness on big occasions? There’s a lot more from me. I’ve got a lot of stuff up my sleeves. Wladimir doesn’t know what he’s in for. I can just say that,”

Klitschko can be backed at 1.25 to pick up a victory, while Fury is priced at 3.80 and the draw is available at 26.00.
