Posting on Twitter, Klitschko said: ‘I arrived at camp and I’m happy to get back to work and prepare for the battle. #NowMoreThanEver.’

It is just the latest stage of the quarrelling between the pair that will add another loud bang to the box-office promotional drum for their rematch.
Fury is no stranger to an occasional foul-mouthed rant but even Klitschko resorted to similar tactics at a press conference last month when he said to Fury about his controversial comments: ‘I want to say f*** off.’
