Tyson Fury is setting himself up for fall against Wladimir Klitschko if a bizarre BBC interview is anything to go by.

The British world heavyweight champ reckoned he is completely unmotivated for the fight in Manchester on July 10, and was preparing by partying and drinking.

Fury may be trying to catch Klitschko off guard, but if not he could be in serious trouble.
Fury, the WBA and WBO title-holder, told boxing correspondent Mike Costello he was seven stone (44kg) above his fighting weight.

"I'm 24 stone at the minute," the self-styled Gypsy King said. "Klitschko don't go overweight, Klitschko don't lose his rag. I'm out drinking, partying 24/7.

"I am the number one in the division, I'm the top dog. I have achieved my goals. I've got no more to achieve."

Fury said "talent" rather than motivation would be key against the 40-year-old Ukranian.
"I love boxing, but when I achieved all the goals that I set out to achieve it's finished for me, it's over," he said.

"I'll go into a camp, train and I'll just show people how to win. Even though I'm not interested in the sport. You don't need motivation, you need talent and ability. That's it."
