The huge heavyweight championship rematch between undefeated champions Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder and Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury is just a few days away, and the fighters and their teams are ready and eager for fight night.
Before the showdown on Saturday night, the two combatants, their teams, and promoters will take the stage for the final press conference on fight week.
WBC champion Wilder has been calm and collected leading up to the fight. The Alabama native is widely considered the hardest puncher in boxing today and he really wants to close the show to finally shut Fury’s big mouth.
Fury survived a scary 12th round knockdown that looked like he was out cold, only for him to rise up off the canvas and return punches back at Wilder to finish the round strong.
The first fight ended in a draw but both guys feel they won the fight.
Wilder’s team believe the referee gave a long count and Fury should have been waved off when he was lying on his back looking at the ceiling.
Fury’s team believe they outboxed Wilder and were robbed of a rightful victory. The Gypsy King also said he wasn’t even in top condition for the first fight and this time around he will be in the best shape of his life.
Listen to what the two heavyweight titans have to say to each other right before the head into battle.
