The 27 year old English challenger is undefeated in his 24 fights with 18 knockouts as he faces the vastly more experienced champion and 12 years his senior, who holds the WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO belts.
Fury has much to prove at Duesseldorf's Esprit Arena, having insisted he has spotted 'chinks' in Klitschko's armour and has promised to 'expose' him in the ring.
"Old guy, young guy. Old champion, new champion. Enough said," was Fury's succinct appraisal.
Klitschko, 39, suffered the last of his three defeats more than a decade ago and plans to make Fury the 54th knockout and 65th win of his career.
As he rightly points out, "Fury has never faced an opponent like me before”.
