Tyson Fury challenges Deontay Wilder in rematch

Fury will challenge Wilder on February 22 in Las Vegas for the WBC title, in an attempt to become a two-time heavyweight champion after the end of Klitschko's reign, which lasted nearly a decade in 2015.

"I know why I did it, moving forward with my gloves high, swinging with no hope, just doing certain things because of the excitement of the fight".

"I took his best blow on the chin and got up again".

"Make no mistake, all heavy weights hit hard". It's the speed at which he lands. I see he's trying to get in different superstitions but at the end of the day, you've seen all of it.

Tyson Fury appears to believe he has "unfinished business" with Deontay Wilder, as the last time the two met the fight ended in a controversial split draw, so the upcoming rematch was appropriately named because each fighter is looking to settle the score. Currently, betting odds essentially list it as a pick'em, with both Fury and Wilder at -112, and the draw at +2200.

However, it is unlikely Fury will be fazed by Wilder's latest comments with a week to go until the big night. The one who should be concerned is Deontay Wilder because with him being a one-trick pony, he's a knockout artist, but he had me down twice in two rounds, nine and 12, and he had over two minutes in each round to finish me and he couldn't finish me.

"He got the two best punches that any heavyweight in the world could throw".

"I've spoken before about my broken hand, but I also didn't fight like I normally do".

"I've been beaten, hurt, humiliated".

"His boxing IQ was fine, but it wasn't up to someone like Wladimir Klitschko".

He has pledged to separate Wilder from consciousness in the second round and insists he'll be far more aggressive in his tactics as he feels leaving it to the judges is far too risky after what happened last time.

"Ten days until we find out if I'm bluffing!" It was like that "Mortal Kombat" [guy] that said, 'Finish him!'

"This time I'm going to knock him out and he won't get up".

He told talkSPORT: "I'm gonna knock him out early so we can all get in to Hakkasan and get drunk".

"I learned in that first fight that he can be hit and hurt", he insisted, as reported by BBC Sport.

"My schedule has been busy but it's been good for my career and it's going to be great when it comes to February 22nd, when everyone gets to witness a devastating knockout". So yeah, it's gonna be pretty hard for Wilder, not me.
