LONDON: World heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko blasted Tyson Fury as a “clown” on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) after his British title rival arrived at a news conference dressed as Batman. Fury, who will take on the Ukrainian in Dusseldorf on October 24 for the WBA, WBO and IBF titles, burst into the room at a London hotel dressed as the Caped Crusader. “I have good friends in Cirque du Soleil, they can give you a job as a clown. I’m telling you, not in an abusive way, I’ve a lot of friends from the circus industry. They’re clowns, it’s very tough to make people laugh,” said Klitschko.
