THE heavyweight fight between Tyson Fury and Christian Hammer will take place in comic book format, it has been announced.
Promoters have confirmed that rather than contesting 12 rounds of boxing, the rivals will slug it out in a 23-page comic.
Frank Warren said: “Instead of tentatively walking in circles round a ring as is customary, drawings of Fury and Hammer will fight on top of skyscrapers, in the crater of a volcano and on a cliff edge with each blow being marked by a red box stating ‘Blammm!!’
“The fight will be won once one fighter knocks the other out of the Earth’s atmosphere and wins the affection of a damsel in distress who had been chained to a nuclear bomb.
“Either that or it goes to points.”
Sources close to Fury have reported that the Irishman has spent much of the week rehearsing slick one-liners to direct at Hammer after landing punches.
Hammer said: “Fury is a worthy adversary, but he will have no answer when I turn myself into a 10-foot tall hammer and pummel him into the ground.”
Fury replied tentatively:”I’m too fast and too Fury-ous,”
