WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have been preparing for their bout that will take place on Saturday October 9th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and they are not holding back when it comes to verbal jabs at each other.
This bout was originally scheduled for July 24th, but was moved due to Fury testing positive for COVID-19. While there has been some talk about the fight being rescheduled, both fighters are ready to go for the third time.
Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) is looking forward to this bout to show that he is much better than Wilder as he aims to stop the former WBC champion faster than the last fight which lasted seven rounds.
“I’m going to knock Deontay Wilder spark out. It will be a one sided fight,” said Fury in a recent interview on iFL TV. “If he couldn’t beat me after three years out of the ring and 10 stone weight loss, he never has a chance of beating me. I am the biggest puncher in the sport. I took Wilder’s punches and knocked him out.”
Fury puts himself higher than every heavyweight in the sport right now, as he feels that he is levels above all of them.
“Compared to me, Joshua, Usyk, and Wilder are all bums,” he said. “They’re hyped up bums.”
Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) has been waiting since February 2020 to avenge his only loss in his professional career. It is known that he has been training with Malik Scott for the past few months, and he feels that camp has been very beneficial for him.
“This training camp has rejuvenated me. It’s refreshed me,” Wilder said about camp. “I have all the right people around me and we’re looking forward to October 9th.”
He feels that Fury has delayed this fight intentionally, but regardless of what happened to cause the fight to be delayed Wilder is ready to face Fury in a few weeks.
“Fury is running away from this fight. I’m running to it,” Wilder said on the PBC Podcast. “Hopefully Fury is confident enough to go through with this fight, because I’m going to be a reinvented Deontay Wilder. I’m in a great place, and you will see a fighter that you have never seen before.”
This “new version” of Wilder wants to reclaim the WBC title against Fury who thinks that there is no fighter around that can beat him. It is shaping up to be a big battle come October 9th.
