EXCLUSIVE Christian Hammer: All the pressure is on Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury's February 28 opponent Christian Hammer explains to James Slater why the upset will become a reality

GERMAN-BASED 27-year-old Christian Hammer says he has proven how confident he is ahead of his February 28 clash with Tyson Fury by agreeing to challenge the unbeaten giant “at his place.” The man who captured gold at the Junior World Amateur Championships in 2006, is 17-3 (10) as a pro (included amongst his victories a decision over Kevin Johnson, who Fury also outpointed), and says Fury’s size is no problem as he “likes fighting taller guys.”

The Romanian-born contender will be having his first fight outside of Germany or Romania, yet he says all the pressure is firmly on Fury’s shoulders.

Q: You are on a roll having won your last 10. Do you feel you are at your peak now and capable of scoring a stoppage win over Tyson Fury?
