But even more than Fury, it’s the ex-champ Wilder who is eagerly waiting for this collision. He has waited desperately to get his hands on ‘The Gypsy King’ and now he’s coming to reclaim his throne. Recently, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ talked about his mindset and how he carries his game plan to the bed.

ESNews shared this video where Wilder said, “I go to bed with a mission on my mind, and I wake up all the time with what I gotta do on my mind as well. You know, so it’s eat, sleep, breathe, and sleep boxing right now.”

Earlier this year, Fury was all set to lock horns with his compatriot, Anthony Joshua, for all the heavyweight titles. But Wilder and his team proceeded legally to book their third meet with ‘The Gypsy King’ and the arbitrator too ruled the decision in Wilder’s favor.

That said, the Alabama native knows how important this fight is to keep himself from fading into obscurity in the dynamic heavyweight roster. Accordingly, he’s ready to roar and put on a performance of the ages on Saturday night.

For this fight, Wilder also got himself a new trainer, and he worked tremendously on new skills.
