Wilder Preps For Early New Year’s Camp For Fury
Just over a month after his knockout victory of Luis Ortiz, Deontay Wilder is making plans for his return to action on February 22nd against Tyson Fury.
“I can’t wait,” Wilder told Boxing Scene as he prepares for the rematch against Fury for the WBC world heavyweight championship. “I had a beautiful vacation (in Italy), we met Pope Francis, it was such a tremendous honor. I got to stand in The Colosseum—man, the whole journey was just checking off bucket list (items).
“My mind is right, now we ready to add my next highlight, baby. I’ve been holding the heavyweight division down when it comes to excitement. Whatever Tyson Fury wants to do with his career and whoever training him, all he’s doing is preparing himself to be added to my career highlight reel.”
“Everything I throw will hurt him,” said Wilder of the former unified world heavyweight champion.
“I can’t wait. It will be an amazing fight, an amazing night. All the work we put in this camp, will all lead to adding to my collection of memorable knockouts.”
