Wladimir Klitschko Challenger Dresses Up Like Batman, Beats Up Joker At Pre-Fight Press Conference (Video)
Boxing has always been about big personalities, but I don’t think we’ve seen anything as weird or gimmicky as this in quite some time. At a London press conference prior to Tyson Fury‘s fight against human giant Wladimir Klitschko, Tyson seemed to go off the rails…more than a little.
Tyson Fury showed up at the press conference in a yellow Lamborghini, which isn’t really that weird for a boxer. It would be weirder if he showed up in a Fiat or something. But when he stepped out, he was in full Batman gear. He then did the press conference as Batman, got in a fake fight with some dude he paid to dress up as the Joker (yup, really), then issued threats, in the character of Batman, to Wladimir Klitschko.
The general consensus is that Klitschko is going to wipe the floor with this guy, so it seems he’s just trying to get some PR in the weirdest way humanly possible. I suppose he’s succeeded in that regard.
Oh, and, of course, there are videos. Here are two of them so you can witness the absurdity firsthand, cutting out the middleman.
I wonder if he’s against getting his butt kicked in the ring while wearing that Batman costume.
