Reigning world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko called Tyson Fury as 'a clown' after the Briton turned up to a press conference ahead of their heavyweight title fight next month dressed as Batman.

Klitschko will defend his IBF, WBO, IBO and WBA heavyweight titles against Fury in Dusseldorf on October 24.

Fury however was in a mood for some laughs as he arrived in the attire of the famous caped crusader.

Things took a further bizarre turn when Fury jumped over the table to wrestle a member of the audience dressed as Batman's arch-enemy The Joker.

Klitchko smiled at Fury's antics and labeled him a 'clown'.

"I've never had such an entertaining press conference," Klitschko said.

"To act funny, doesn't mean to act stupid.

"David Haye, a cruiserweight, could have knocked you out."
