Tyson Fury wants Brock Lesnar after he ‘Knocks Out Deontay Wilder’
Tyson Fury already eyes his next opponent after Deontay Wilder.
Tyson Fury (29-0-1, 20KOs) has made it clear that he intends to knock out Deontay Wilder (42-0-1, 41KOs) when they meet in a rematch. The lineal heavyweight champion would rather take matters into his own hands than to leave it up to the judges.
Under new trainer Sugar Hill, Fury looks to implement a different style from the one that saw him settle for a controversial draw on the night of December 1, 2018 at the Staples Center.
“Why do you think I employed Sugar Hill?” asked Fury. “Is it to improve my slick boxing move style? I don’t think so. Just look for that big right hand, Tommy Hearn style. POW. That’s what we’re looking for, knockout; or go home. If you don’t knock him out, it don’t count.”
The Manchester-bred fighter hopes to set himself up for another big fight with a knockout victory over Wilder. Though that fight won’t take place in a boxing ring, as Fury called out a WWE superstar as his next potential opponent.
“When I knock out Deontay Wilder, then I’m gonna go to WrestleMania in April for sure,” said Fury. “I want Brock (Lesnar), that’s who I want. I already done (Braun) Strowman. I already done the biggest one they got.”
Fury is no stranger to the WWE, as he made his debut against Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia. He went on to defeat “The Monster Among Men” by count-out after hitting him with a right hand. When asked if he would knock out Lesnar as well, “The Gypsy King” replied “100 percent.”
