The eccentric heavyweight will face the world champion on October 24, but has he Gotham worried with this outfit?

The world of professional boxing is no stranger to weird and wonderful goings on but today's press conference to start the hype for Tyson Fury's world title tilt at Wladmir Klitschko was unusual even by the standards of the sweet science.

The unbeaten Fury turned up to the event dressed as Batman, and then, when another person dressed as The Joker arrived, Fury/Batman hopped over the table and 'fought' the villain, all with the Batman theme music from the TV playing in the background.

“I’ve never had such an entertaining press conference,” Klitschko said before Fury left as Batman, returning a few minutes later in a suit to continue the press conference to throw a few more verbal jabs at the champ. 

Fury will fight Klitschko for his WBA, WBO and IBF in Germany on October 24.
