Tyson Fury staged one of the most bizarre press conferences this year, starting when he arrived dressed as batman and ending in a brawl between himself and the Joker.

Fury took several questions from journalists as the caped crusader before a staged fight when the superhero’s nemesis turned up.

The boxer launched over the table, wrestled the Joker to the ground while knocking some of Vladimir Klitschko's title belts to the floor. 

Fury is set to fight Klitchko for his IBO, WBO and WBA belts in Dusseldorf on October 24 and the 27-year-old is expected earn in the region of £2.5m from the fight.

At the start of the conference, Fury left Klitschko waiting in front of journalists before entering the room to loud renditions of the Batman theme tune.
