Undefeated unabashed British fighter Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury will challenge the e World Boxing Council heavyweight champion, Deontay ” Bronze Bomber” Wilder, on February 22 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Fury who`s enjoying a brilliant boxing renaissance commented:
“I was born ready to be a champion. I feel good in the training camp. Everything has gone very well. There are no excuses. Everything is dedication and sacrifice, day after day.”
“The first fight I wanted to get in and get it over. It did not work. No matter what people say, I didn’t win. I count the draw as a defeat.
“We are giant heavyweights. I have had 20 knockouts, so I am very capable of knocking out my rivals. When you underestimate the power of another person, you usually end up defeated. If I am a great puncher or not, I don’t think anyone else can equalize with heart and determination. I will put my iron will to knock out Deontay Wilder.
“How to beat a massive puncher? You have to work it well. He gets great power from his long arms. I have to keep it at a distance so that he absorbs some of my power.
“He had a great performance against Ortiz. He did what he was supposed to do. He knocks everyone out. He was relaxed and calm under pressure.
“Wilder has knocked out 43 opponents. I respect him. He has incredible power and his name lives up to the best of all time. He is a great puncher but I can defeat him.”
