Fury vows to make his dream real ahead of Wilder battle

It's unfinished business like an EPMD album and a calm and confident WBC World Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder has promised to finish the job against former unified titlist Tyson Fury.

Fury and Wilder will go head-to-head at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena in February, 14 months after their controversial opening bout.

"What is going to happen is that I am going to get what I won last time".

"You're going to sleep in two rounds", Fury told Wilder.

"He is getting knocked out in Round 2, 100 percent".

"I hired him [Hill] for a knockout".

"This is unfinished business that I will finish", Wilder continued (emphasis his).

"I'm looking for a knockout", he said. "Two rounds, he's going down". That's what I'm looking for.

The bold prediction elicited a chuckle from Wilder, who is considered by many to be the hardest hitter in boxing history.

"I mean, that's what he believes in his heart". "But the magic of it all is the belief".

"The consensus is either he knocks me out, or I win on points", Fury said. If anything, I feel he's nervous. I'll knock him through the ropes'. Their first fight ended in a draw in December 2018. Fury, seemingly down and out, managed to rise and beat the count.

"It's not an act, it's something I do every time I'm out. And it won't be no different this time around". He gets you to sit down on that big right hand.

That's right; Wilder really said "flying elbow kick". 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.

Both fighters have fought twice since. He defeated Schwarz by second-round TKO in June and took a tougher-than-expected unanimous decision from Wallin in September.

Wilder blasted Dominic Breazeale with a devastating first-round KO in May and produced a seventh-round KO of Luis Ortiz in their own rematch in November. It's been fantastic for me because it's been a quick turnaround. I like to say I put shape on top of shape. "This time I can turn that screwdriver until he is gone", he told a news conference on Monday.

Fury (29-0-1, 20 knockouts) earned a share of the spoils in the first fight after frustrating Wilder with a superbly elusive performance.

And what will be the result?

"He thinks I'm going to come out herky-jerky with my famous style, but I want him to meet me in the centre of the ring and have a slugfest, best man wins". "Rising up is part of the baptism".

"It's going to be a attractive moment in time for me", Wilder said, "but not so pleasant for him". And he did just that.

The trash talk is ferocious from both but as last time also showed - they both back it up in the ring. The "Gypsy King" vows that Wilder won't be able to detonate and land it this time.
