Fury ready for 'war' in Wilder heavyweight title rematch

Betfred secure Fury fight

Tyson Fury plans to knock Deontay Wilder out in the second round of their hotly-anticipated heavyweight world title rematch on February 22. According to the huge Englishman, he doesn't need to concern himself with much more than Wilder's risky right hand when they square off again at MGM Grand Garden Arena. "I don't know why, I don't know when but round two is when it's going to be".

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

"When I've seen him, been there with him and served my energy with him - that allowed me to be able to prepare for him a little bit different than last time because I've been in there for twelve rounds, I know what he's capable of doing and I know what he's going to do".

"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". Wilder is a ridiculous 42-0-1, with 41 of those wins coming via knockout, but Fury's record isn't too shabby either, as he's 29-0-1, with 20 KOs.

This fight should've taken place a long time ago, but TV rights held up the rematch, as Fury signed a contract with both ESPN and Top Rank, which led to issues about possible co-promotion.

But Fury said: "The one who should worry is Wilder".

"I took his best shot flush on the chin and I got back up". He's a single-handed pony, a rookie artist, but he had me in two rounds, the ninth and the 12th, and he had more than two minutes in each round to finish.

"I don't think he hits harder than Wladimir Klitschko". It was like that "Mortal Kombat" [guy] that said, 'Finish him!' "But the Gypsy King rose like a phoenix from the ashes at my feet, and I hurt him at the end of the round". "I keep moving forward".

Fury called his hiring the new coach Sugarhill Steward, who replaced Ben Davison, as "one of the best decisions I've made".

"If it's gonna give me an edge, I'm willing to try it".
