Tyson Fury is building up his rematch with Deontay Wilder with a bold statement: a second round knockout when they meet again next month.
The highly anticipated rematch will happen at the MGM Grand on February 22. The first match in 2018 ended in a draw.
Fury predicts second-round knockout winThe British heavyweight believes he can knock out Wilder in the second-round.
"Deontay knows he was rocked three or four times in the last fight and I didn't have the gas to finish him. This time I can turn that screwdriver until he is gone," Fury said.
"You are going to sleep in two rounds. I keep having the same dream about round two. I am playing poker and I get dealt the number two card," he added.
"He is getting knocked out in round two, 100 per cent," Fury declared.
Wilder respondsWilder responded by questioning Fury over whether he believed in his own comments.
"I mean that's what he believes in his heart. That's what he believes. I always teach people when I speak – I say speak it, believe it, receive it," the WBC heavyweight title holder said.
"But the magic of it all is the belief, it's the belief. And though he's saying it, I don't feel that in his energy that he believes that he's going to do that," Wilder added.
Fury nervous?It isn't a secret that Fury has found exit strategies already. It sparks a question whether his WWE appearances mean he's on his way out of boxing already.
Wilder feels his rival is nervous because of what happened in the first fight. "He knows what happened. What you get knocked out like that and you don't know how you got there or how you got up, it was the grace of God. That bothers you," he explained.
