The water between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury keeps on boiling ahead of their attention-catcher rematch on February 22nd at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Wilder reiterated on Fury’s claim to knock him out early come Saturday night.
“Honestly and truthfully, I don’t believe Fury believes the words coming out of his mouth,” Wilder said who will make his 11th WBC title defense.
“We all know he don’t have no power. As far as him knocking me out, he don’t believe that himself,” the Bronze Boomer added.
The two heavyweights are very vocal and have been trading tirades since their first meeting that resulted in a controversial draw.
Wilder has a better record on paper with his 42 wins including his impressive 41 knockouts with one draw while Fury is 29-20-0 with one draw.
Earlier the Gypsy King Fury predicted to knock Wilder out in two rounds which Wilder responded by saying “he can’t even see that in his dreams.”
The winner of the mega-fight will potentially be staged on another mega-fight fighting the unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
Making the spotlight in the co-main event is former heavyweight world champion Charles Martin and Gerald Washington in an IBF Heavyweight Title eliminator.
Meanwhile, Emmanuel Navarrete will defend his WBO Junior Featherweight belt against the Filipino Jeo Santisima in pay-per-view.
