Fury: Wilder Will Beg Me To KO Him

While Tyson Fury respects Deontay Wilder’s ability as a boxer, he cannot think of a scenario where the WBC world heavyweight champion can beat him on December 1st.

During last week’s press tour, the lineal heavyweight champion feels that he will frustrate the Alabama born boxer so much ,that he will beg for a stoppage.

“He is what his name says,” Fury said recently during their three-city press tour. “It says it on the tin, what he does. He’s very wild. But I think he’s got underestimated boxing [ability]. I think his boxing skill is better than people give him credit for. But you need more than a big punch to beat somebody like me.”

“Deontay Wilder needs more than a big punch to beat me. Because there’s been massive punchers before, and we’ve seen them be out-boxed before by the likes of Larry Holmes. Earnie Shavers was one of the biggest heavyweight punchers in the [history] of boxing. But he didn’t beat Holmes. Holmes just jabbed and moved and beat him up quite comfortable [in two fights].

“And that’s what I’m gonna do to Wilder. I’m gonna stick and move, stick and move, stick and move, and then, ‘Bam!’ And he ain’t even gonna see it. But he’s gonna be begging for it. He’ll be begging to get knocked out after a while, because he’ll jack in his mind, he’ll quit and he’ll think, ‘You know what? I’m looking a fool here. I’m not knocking anybody out. I can’t land any punches. Just knock me out, please.’ And I’ll oblige. I’ll detonate a big right hand off his jaw and we’re gonna see him on the floor. And I’m gonna stand over him and say, ‘I told you so. I told you.’ ”
