Ahead of the fight, EsNews asked Tys0n ‘The Gypsy King’ if he felt the extra time leading to the fight would help Wilder train better. Fury replied, saying, “It doesn’t really matter how good they wanna come in, it’s really unimportant to me. Yeah, they have a lot of time. But however long he’s been a pro, 13 years, he still can’t beat me. So you know, what’s another few months gonna do?”

Fury has always been very open about his game plan against Wilder. Ever since they announced the rematch, Fury confidently spoke about how he was going to walk through Wilder. ‘The Bronze Bomber’, on the 0ther hand, says the changes he made to his training camp will bring out a different side of him for this fight.

With his new trainer Malik Scott engineering an excellent training camp, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ seems confident that he will win his titles back from Fury. The last time these two met in the ring, Fury dominated his American foe. For seven straight rounds, Wilder looked lost inside the ring as the Gypsy King put on a show.

According to Fury, training is the only thing that motivates him. In a chat with BBC 5 Boxing Radio Podcast, he said, “What motivates me? I’m getting asked this a lot. It’s definitely not a few quid. It’s a fact there’s nothing else. I’m boxing because I can — I don’t enjoy anything else, I don’t have any hobbies. After boxing, I will be a very sad, lonely person.”
