Fury fires fighting talk at Klitschkos

"KlitSchkos, I'm coming!" is the war cry from Tyson Fury as he psyches himself up for tomorrow night's battle with giant American Nicolai Firtha at the King's Hall in Belfast.

With Dereck Chisora's scalp to his credit, Fury says he's finding it difficult to get meaningful opponents, claiming David Price is among those who turned him down.

Price defeated Fury when they were amateurs and his manager Frank Maloney ridicules Fury's claim. "It's rubbish that Fury claims David Price says 'No' to a fight," he insists. "I never received an offer. Tyson's promoter must have been dreaming and got confused."

But Fury reckons he's on his way to a world title shot. "Don't blink," says Fury of tomorrow's fight. "This is going to be an all-action showdown."
