In a fresh conversation with Lance Pugmire and Mike Coppinger, Fury went all out against ‘The Bronze Bomber’.

He said, “You had a boxing lesson the first time, humiliation. Then you had an absolute destruction. I hate to think what he’s gonna get the next time. I’m gonna have two sets of knuckle dusters in my gloves this time, p***y.” (h/t Michael Benson)

In their first outing, Fury stunned Wilder as he survived the vicious power coming off the Alabama native’s hands.

The entire fight world was on its feet to applaud Fury for the performance he put up against Wilder. But no one expected him to smother ‘The Bronze Bomber’ in their rematch. In their rematch, Fury abided by his words and only went forward with his sturdy combination of shots.

With that, Wilder got wobbled throughout that fight. Subsequently, in round 7, it was all over for the ex-WBC champ. Now, ‘The Gypsy King’ will look to prove that it was no fluke.

Fury was all set to enter his dream fight against Anthony Joshua for all the heavyweight titles. But Wilder, who played his cards extremely well, could play spoilsport, denying fans the ‘AJ’ vs Fury fight for good.

A win here will help ‘The Gypsy King’ get back on course for his legacy-defining bout. Hence, his third showdown with Wilder could potentially be career-defining, as there are no more rematch clauses between the two.
