Klitschko challenger Fury goes to news conference as Batman, levels Joker in bizarre stunt

Wladimir Klitschko's heavyweight challenger, Tyson Fury, staged some comic theatrics on Wednesday at a press conference for their Oct. 24 fight in what will be Klitschko's record 28th heavyweight title bout.

The undefeated 27-year-old British heavyweight Fury (24-0) has a history of press conference shenanigans such as taping his mouth shut and knocking a table over.

The Batmobile must have been taken as Fury arrived via Gotham City at the conference in a yellow Lamborghini before eventually sitting at the dais as the masked superhero.

After Klitschko's trainer, Johnathon Banks, addressed the assembled media, Fury/Batman performed his stunt as Batman's theme played and a man dressed as The Joker took a beating from the 6-foot-9 challenger (watch above).

As for the 39-year-old Klitschko, this is where he's at:

Fury is a more talented boxer than he is a showman, but he probably won the interest of at least a few more dozen people for the Oct. 24 bout.
