Tyson Fury threatens Klitschko with an axe (VIDEO)

Tyson Fury threatens Klitschko with an axe (VIDEO)
The rivalry between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko has taken another bizarre turn, with the Brit threatening his fellow boxer in a tongue-in-cheek video.

In the clip, Fury appears to be wielding a big axe, seemingly threatening the Ukrainian Klitschko with it.

“I’m the lumberjack and I’m going to chop Klitschko like a big old oak tree,” he says.

This latest episode is yet another instalment in the growing rivalry between the pair, with the upcoming heavyweight rematch set to take place on July 9 in Manchester.

The first fight between the pair took place in November last year, which saw Fury win by unanimous decision, ending Klitschko’s almost 10-year reign as IBF heavyweight champion.

Klitschko requested the upcoming July rematch, which will not be for the IBF title, due to Fury choosing to fight the Ukrainian as opposed to the IBF’s mandatory challenger, Vyacheslav Glazkov, and thereby vacating his IBF belt.
