In a chat with Talk Sport, ‘Hayemaker’ said, “Wilder seems like he’s got a massive point to prove. Fury feels like he just wants to get in there and get him out of the way. It’s a bad energy to have going into a fight. He needs to realize this is the biggest fight of his life.”

“Wilder wants to prove to the world that he’s better than people think he is. He’ll train harder than he’s ever trained in his life. Fury, on the other hand, he’s had a lot of issues that have distracted him from being in the gym and training, completely understandable, but putting all these things together, it’ll make for a cracking night.” (H.T:- Boxing Scene)
