WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury is planning a more devastating finish to former champ Deontay Wilder when they meet for their third fight on the 9th October at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas. Live in BT Sport’s Box Office and ESPN Pay-Per-View.
Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) will be making the first defence of the WBC title he ripped off Deontay Wilder’s shoulder in their rematch in the 22nd of February 2020. Fury dropped Wilder twice en route to a convincing stoppage victory and believes that this time will be a lot easier that the first.
“This time, I’m going to absolutely obliterate him. It isn’t going to seven rounds this time, I’m going to get him out of there nice and quick.
“He was the biggest puncher in history, but I knocked him out. I’m the biggest and toughest puncher. He’s only a threat in somebody’s nightmares but not in mine.
“They’ve always got a puncher’s chance but so has every heavyweight out there. When I say I’m going to annihilate him, what did I say last time? I said I was going to drop him, knock him out, smash him and I did.
Tyson Fury believes the Alabama Knockout Artist can never defeat him, if he wasn’t able to defeat him after struggling through mental issues and having to some much weight on him in their first meeting.
“In the last seven years I’ve had two years back and five years off so there are no miles on the clock. I actually feel sorry for Wilder. He’s had time to get over the beating, now has a new trainer, and more bag carriers and yes men.
“I think he will come in fired up, but after one round he will realize he’s back where he started. If he couldn’t beat me after three years out and 10 stone weight loss, he never will.”
