Wilder, Fury vow to settle rematch with a knockout

Wilder, Fury vow to settle rematch with a knockout

This is to prepare Fury for his fight against Wilder which is scheduled to take place in February.

Fury and Wilder will face off again at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena on February 22 in their highly anticipated rematch.

But Wilder isn't the only one Fury is wanting to get his hands on as the Gypsy King revealed that he's administering some self love seven times a day in the build up to the fight.

Aside from the fighters' charismatic personalities and their penchants for wild public statements, this matchup is fascinating because it pits Fury's boxing skills - which are impressive for any fighter, let alone a hulking heavyweight - against Wilder's ferocious punching power, which is likely unmatched in the sport.

"You're going to sleep in two rounds", Fury told Wilder at a press conference on Monday in Los Angeles. I keep having the same dream about Round 2. I am playing poker and I get dealt the number two card. He's getting knocked out in two rounds.

During that first encounter, Fury outboxed Wilder for large stretches but Wilder dropped him once in the ninth and almost ended the bout with another knockdown in the dramatic twelfth.

Kane's injury will keep him out of action until April at the earliest, leaving Mourinho short of options up front. Eriksen has entered the final six months of his Spurs contract and has told the club he will not sign a new deal.

"I mean, that's what he believes in his heart".

"I never had the gas to put that foot down", he said, referring to his conditioning in their first clash. "So you just don't know what's going to happen", said the native of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, who is prone to speaking in third person. I've proven myself time and time again and I will do it again in February, " the 34-year-old pugilist said.

"This is the first training camp in 10 years where I haven't had one Diet Coke, and I won't have any until after the fight", Fury said.

"When you get knocked out like that and you don't know how you got there or how you got up, it was the grace of God". That bothers you. That not only affects you, but it affects your environment, it affects your family as well because they know you're going in there again with this monster and you know what he's capable of doing. No diet coke, which I've become susceptible to", Fury added, "I've had tons, and tons, and tons of it in every training camp. "Every guy that I've faced, I've put him down, and it won't be no different this time around, either".

That being said, one suspects what could be planned for later on could be even more off the hook. "Rising up is part of the baptism". This time around, it's called unfinished business.

That's right; Wilder really said "flying elbow kick". "I'm going to give him a boxing lesson".
