Speaking to Sky Sports from his training camp, Fury said Klitschko was “in trouble” because the biggest win of his career came against ‘The Hayemaker’.

“His best win was against David Haye, but he’s a bottle job,” said Fury.

“If that’s the biggest win of his career so far then he’s in trouble, because that man wouldn’t face me twice.

“What’s he’s going to be like when he has a 6ft9 Gypsy King in front of him?”

Klitschko defeated Haye by a unanimous points decision to unify the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO Heavyweight titles in 2011.

Fury was then twice due to battle Haye, first in September 2013 then in February 2014. But the Londoner pulled out due to injury.

Haye has recently made noises about a comeback against undefeated Olympic champion Anthony Joshua.

Fury also told Sky Sports the Klitschko bout on October 24 in Dusseldorf was “just another fight”.

“There is no losing for me at this stage in my career. All fights are equally as important to win as each other.”

The Morecambe man has been hard at work training three times a day, six days a week, and says he’ll train right up until the bout at the Esprit Arena in the German city.

He has been working on a tailor-made fitness plan to generate more power in his punches, enduring strength and conditioning training including weights and workouts in a swimming pool.

Earlier, Fury filmed himself in the car on the way to training, for his own personal Periscope video feed.

He said: “I woke up this morning at 8am, guys are here from press, newspaper people, photographers, press are here every day. It’s starting to feel like a world title fight.”

His uncle and trainer Peter also talked about how he fits media interviews into Tyson’s training schedule.

“As long as they don’t get in my way, I’m happy,” said Peter.

“We’re press friendly, we like talking to people.

“But yesterday they wanted Tyson to drive around in the car for an hour, that’s not happening.”

Tyson appears in a six-page feature in top fight weekly Boxing News magazine, out today.

In an interview with Danny Flexen, he said: “I’m the most negative person in the world.

“I’m not interested in being an ambassador for anything or holding titles for a long time. There’s nothing that makes me happy, I’ve tried everything.

“I’m 27, I don’t want to be boxing late on in life and I want to enjoy what I’ve done really.

“Because when you don’t like what you do, you don’t like your job, you don’t want to do it, do you?

“I hate every minute of training and every minute of boxing. I just don’t like it. I box because, fortunately, I’m bigger than everybody else and I’m blessed with a little bit of talent.”

Earlier today Fury tweeted on his Twitter account @Tyson_Fury:

“Keeping a positive mindset is the most important thing during training camps, the mind is the key to victory, fights are firstly won in head!”
