Deontay Wilder says Wilder vs. Fury rematch ‘Will Be Worse’ for Tyson Fury
Deontay Wilder vows to put Tyson Fury out this time around.
Deontay Wilder appeared to have knocked Tyson Fury out cold when they met at the Staples Center in December 2018. But “The Gypsy King” got up to the shock of many, with about one minute left in the final round.
Although Fury held on to the last bell, Wilder has claimed he gave the Brit a concussion; as he laid unconscious on his back momentarily following the knockdown.
“Just imagine one second you close your eyes,” said Wilder. “And you wake up, you on the ground. Jumping around, don’t know what’s going on. And the only way you reveal what happened is you go look on video yourself. It’s scary.”
After the bout ended in a draw, Wilder (42-0-1, 41KOs) is coming off two vicious knockout victories over Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz. Those victories have only fueled the WBC heavyweight champion to achieve the same result when he meets Fury (29-0-1, 20KOs) in a rematch on February 22nd at the MGM Grand Arena.
“He understand that my last two outings don’t make it no better for him,” said Wilder. “Because I did that in devastating (fashion).”
“The Bronze Bomber” believes the knockdown had it’s impact on Fury mentally, making him vulnerable to repeating the same fate in the ring. Though Wilder assures that this time will be more unpleasant for the lineal champion.
“This time it’s gonna be worse than it was the first time,” said Wilder. “But that’s goin be his mental issue he has to deal with.”
