British heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury who out-matched is opponent Deontey Wilder in their heavyweight championship bout courtesy of his seventh round TKO victory in Las Vegas, as spoken of how well he and his team had prepared towards the rematch after their draw in december 2018.
Speaking in his post bout press conference in a celebratory mood; fury well renown as the gypsy king stated; “I told everybody with a pair of ears that the Gypsy King would return to the throne. My last fight everybody wrote me off. I was under weight and over trained. I’m a destroyer. Not bad for someone with pillow fists.
“I’m a man of my word. I told Wilder, his team, the world. We trained for a knockout, we wasn’t tapping around in that gym.
Fury who used his reach and height advantage beat Wilder to the punch, took total control in the third round where he landed a right hand to Wilder’s left ear to drop him to the canvas; a punch hit that made the former champion wilder to never regained his legs or footing through the rest of the match.
The Gypsy king fury also talked up a possible third bout against Wilder, calling him a warrior despite defeating him; Fury said: “I talk like this because I can back it up. People write me off, they look at my fat belly and bald head and think I can’t fight. He fought the best Tyson Fury, we’re both in our primes.
“I expect him [Wilder] to ask for the third fight. I know he’s a warrior and I’ll be waiting.”
Wilder has a one-month waiting clause to trigger a third bout against the new WBC heavyweight fury, as the british boxer who sang Don McLean’s ‘American Pie’ in the ring after his victory wants the third bout against Wilder to take place in Las Vegas; the Allegiant Stadium stadium which is currently being built for the re-located Las Vegas Raiders American football team, and is due to be opened in the summer of this year.
