Tyson fury and Deontay Wilder
Earlier fury explained why Wilder can’t win.
“After all I went through health problems, drug addiction, alcohol addiction, I’m back. I won it all. And how do I let someone beat me two Boxing gloves?
I was born and raised to fight. I need a box. No Boxing, no life. That’s how I feel about Boxing. Boxing is my passion.
Many fighters just do it for money or fame. None of this matter because if I said I don’t pay for this fight, I still want to fight because I want to fight the best. And I think at the moment Deontay Wilder fits like no other. I’m going to come back and beat him. And it will be one of the greatest comebacks of this century,” said fury.
During a press conference in Los Angeles, which took place on October 3, fury and Wilder again staged a brawl.
At a joint press-conference dedicated to the fight, Wilder said, “cut down” Tyson fury.
“This battle brings light into havivah. Once the division was going through dark times. It was boring, the bright soldiers were absent. People asked:
“Where’s the Golden era of Boxing? Where it all go?” Now everything is different. We breathed life into havivah. Everyone knows that the knockout is Deontay Wilder and Wilder Deontay is a knockout. And when I promise to knockout the opponent, then keep your word. I promise to cut Tyson fury.
I returned the fury to the ring, pulled it out of the quagmire. I told him: “You can do it, dude.” Wish he was in great shape and full of confidence. But I think that in any case he knows what he is destined. I’ll smear his face.
He now swaggers, but it is different in the ring. He is nervous, hides behind a mask your nerves. Don’t give people false promises. Do not promise that you will not be able to perform. I say I’ll knock you out, because I know I can handle to do it,” said Wilder.
