Tyson Fury holds no fear of the power possessed by Deontay Wilder. The ‘Gypsy King’ is ready to rip away the WBC heavyweight title on December 1.
Speaking during the recent press tour, Fury made the outlandish claim that Wilder will be his simplest victory to date.
“There isn’t a man born from his mother that Tyson Fury is afraid of, and especially not a man who wears pigtails every day,” said Fury.
“I don’t fear anything about him; I don’t fear anything he can do.
“It’s a fight. We can do all this stuff on stage, I can walk around here and I can talk as good as any man in the country. But when it comes to a fight, it’s going to be a hell of a fight.
“Deontay Wilder. He’s a massive puncher. Me? – I’m a skillful boxer. It’s going to be an epic night.
“This is a legacy fight and I do believe that’s true. And after I win, he’s going to hire me as his publicist. I do believe I can promote Deontay Wilder back to being heavyweight champion of the world in no time.
“But there’s no shame in losing to me because I am the greatest boxer of my generation and I can’t be beat, especially not by him.
“Deontay Wilder needs Tyson Fury but Tyson Fury doesn’t need Deontay Wilder. I chose Deontay Wilder as an easy victim. This is going to be the easiest fight of my career.”
Wilder vs. Fury tests the raw power of Wilder against the unmatched size and mobility of Fury.
America’s only heavyweight champion since 2007, Wilder has 39 knockouts in 40 professional fights. This includes knockouts in all seven of his title defenses.
Fury is a former IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight world champion. He is undefeated in 27 professional fights and holds boxing’s coveted lineal heavyweight title.
