Fury predicts second-round knockout of Wilder

Fury and Wilder will face off again at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena on February 22 in their highly anticipated rematch. And, oh yeah, the "Gypsy King" was rocking a custom suit with images of himself celebrating in boxing glory.

He believes he can find that extra reservoir of strength this time, even if he has to abandon the boxing skills that served him well for most of the first fight.

When Fury took the mic for his opening statement, however, he kept it brief.

"If anything, I feel that he's nervous, he's very scared because of what happened the first time and I understand. It's scary for your friends, your family, because they know you're going in there with that monster". The two delivered an incredible bout in December 2018 when they fought to a controversial split draw.

Fury almost won the first bout with his impressive movement and activity, but Wilder's strength proved to be an equaliser. February 22 thus marks an opportunity to handle unfinished business. I know I need to get a knockout here.

Deontay Wilder knocks Tyson Fury down during their first heavyweight bout. Twitter had plenty of fun with that.

"Deontay knows he was rocked three or four times in the last fight and I didn't have the gas to finish him". "I knocked him out the first time".

The American champ had landed a knockout-bound punch on Fury but the Brit summoned some courage to give Wilder some good punches inside the ring.

"I told you before our first fight that I was going to baptize you", Wilder said. I've proven myself time and time again and I will do it again in February, " the 34-year-old pugilist said.

"I've never been as sure as anything in my whole life", he added moments later. "I keep having the same dream and when I'm playing poker I keep getting dealt two. One hundred percent, he can not win". Fury fought two virtually unknown boxers, Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin. Fury suffered a gruesome cut over his right eye during the latter bout.

Wilder is aiming for a knockout, but he also believes he can win a decision.

Fury is well aware that Wilder only has to be ideal for one second because he possesses the best weapon in boxing - his right hand. He won't be able to get back up.

"It ain't luck", Fury said of Wilder's right hand. But this time around, I'm putting shape on top of shape on top of shape.

"If he beat me, then why all the new trainers?"

Wilder also ridiculed Fury's insistence that he should have been declared the victory of the 2018 meeting.

"I'll meet you in the middle of the ring", Fury dared Wilder.

Fury kicked things off by telling Wilder, "You are going to sleep in two rounds".

He told TheBoxingVoice: "I saw it. Look at those b**ches, that's what I said, they're all some b**ches". But I always come in shape. This time I can turn that screwdriver until he is gone.

Wilder didn't sound fazed at all.

"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".
