Fury came dressed up as the Caped Crusader, and partway through the event he jumped up and fought another man, who was playing the part of The Joker. Fury then pointed at the heavyweight champion and let him know he would be suffering the same fate as the comic book villain.

Klitschko smiled throughout the show, calling it the “most entertaining press conference I have ever been to,” according to The Associated Press.

The heavyweight champion will take on the undefeated Fury in Germany on Oct. 24.
