Fury chasing knockout in Wilder rematch

14 Janvier, 2020, 12:18 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion
  • Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury each vow to deliver devastating KO in rematch

Fury kicked things off by telling Wilder, "You are going to sleep in two rounds".

Wilder replied by picking up his own microphone and loudly sniffing it, mocking Fury for his past problems with drug abuse.

The two fighters faced off before and after Monday's press conference before exchanging a handshake.

Fury, will fight WBC heavyweight title holder Wilder next month in Las Vegas after their 2018 bout in Los Angeles ended in a controversial draw.

Unsurprisingly, the Brit (29-0-1) believes he will be successful in taking Wilder out early.

Wilder (42-0-1, 41 knockouts) however was unimpressed with Fury's claims of a tactical switch.

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn, meanwhile, told iFL TV before Christmas that he wouldn't be surprised to see Fury and Joshua spar each other though seemed to cast doubt on the idea. "That bothers you", said Wilder. "It allows me to prepare even harder and even more for him". "I am going to knock him out of those ropes". "Rising up is part of the baptism".

"That's why I hired Sugarhill".

The presser is expected to get underway later today at 2pm LA time on the West coast. He won't be able to get back up. "I knocked him out the first time".

Aside from the fighters' charismatic personalities and their penchants for wild public statements, this matchup is fascinating because it pits Fury's boxing skills - which are impressive for any fighter, let alone a hulking heavyweight - against Wilder's ferocious punching power, which is likely unmatched in the sport.

During that first encounter, Fury outboxed Wilder for large stretches but Wilder dropped him once in the ninth and almost ended the bout with another knockdown in the dramatic twelfth.

"I know I will not get a decision in the USA", said Fury on Monday.

Last month, Fury moved from Davison to team up with Javan "Sugar" Hill.

"I told Fury two years ago I was going to baptise him and I did just that". Thinking it doesn't count.

Fury and Wilder were full of respect for each other after the first fight.

Fury believes he hurt Wilder several times in their first bout, but said he "just didn't have the gas" that would have been necessary for a knockout. Wilder believes the short break between bouts will be key. He also feels the first fight should have been stopped due to a deep cut on Fury's face. The Cuban outboxed him for most of the seven rounds but the American finished it at the end of the seventh with a devastating right hand.

"When I speak, I say, 'speak it, believe it, receive it", said the champion.

Fury added: "If I'm stupid enough to get hit by that big, stupid right hand, then I deserve to get knocked out".

Wilder also ridiculed Fury's insistence that he should have been declared the victory of the 2018 meeting. Fury fought two virtually unknown boxers, Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin.

Wilder recently responded angrily about any suggestion Fury and Joshua could combine to help get the former get the better of the "Bronze Bomber".

"It's not only scary for you".
