With flight arrival and departure times flashing in the background Wladimir Klitschko underwent a public workout at Dusseldorf airport ahead of his World heavyweight title fight with English challenger Tyson Fury.
On Saturday at the 55,000-capacity Esprit Arena, Ukraine’s heavyweight champion Klitschko will be defending all his belts – the WBA, WBO and IBF – in a winner takes all slug fest.
The 39-year-old has not lost for 11 years and has a record of 64 wins and three defeats.
It will be his 19th title defence.
Fury meanwhile is 12 years younger and at 6ft 9in, is slightly taller than Klitschko – a rare occurrence.
The English challenger, who is unbeaten in 24 fights, has been outspoken and controversial throughout the build-up.
And this training session was no different as he wrapped things up at the airport by serenading his opponent, who was ringside, with a rendition of Bette Midler’s “Wind Beneath My Wings’‘.
