Wilder Looking To Make Fury Pay On Fight Night
Deontay Wilder rarely has someone matching him in the smack talk department, and while Tyson Fury may meet his match on the microphone, the WBC world heavyweight champion refuses to let it get to him.
The two face off for Wilder’s title on December 1st at Staples Center in Los Angeles, and during the Los Angeles portion of a recent media your, Fury and Wilder needed to be pulled apart in a near melee.
That withstanding, Wilder claims he won’t let the lineal world heavyweight champion live inside his mind. “Fury got into Klitschko’s head, and Klitschko wasn’t able to let his hands go, execute or do the things he usually does. Fury is trying to do the same thing with me, but he’s not getting into my head—trust me,” Wilder told Premier Boxing Champions.
“I’ve been through that so many times, this is just another phase in my life. But I want Tyson to think he’s in my head. If he thinks that, then I’m doing a great job of making him believe that.”
‘When he steps into the ring with me, Tyson Fury is going to pay for everything that he’s said. I’m going to hold him fully accountable for his actions. I’ve got a thick skin, so this is nothing,” Wilder said of Fury’s constant taunting.
“[Steve] Cunningham is a much smaller guy, and if he dropped Fury, then I’m not going to have any problem connecting. The major difference though is that when I connect—and I am gonna connect—it’s only going to be a matter of time for him. And when it comes, it’s going to be good night for Tyson Fury.”
