Wilder Out For Blood In Fury Rematch
Deontay Wilder continues to focus on the right eyebrow of Tyson Fury, even though a potential fight between the two is over four months away.
Wilder, who fights Luis Oriz in a rematch on November 23rd, claims that if they both make it to February 22nd, vowed to reopen the cut Fury suffered in September against Otto Wallin.
“I’m going to open [the eye] if it ain’t right. I don’t know how many rounds it will take — depends on how good his plastic surgeon was,” said Wilder of the cut that needed 47 stitches to close.
When asked if Wilder is planning to fight Fury this winter, the WBC champ said, “Most definitely. If everything is good with him. He says he wants to fight. I try to give these fighters what they want. I understand the sport, and how hard it is for us to make it.”
“I’m going to have to dramatically knock out Ortiz and give the fans what they paid to see. How do you do that? End it in the first round. That will be sensational… It will pump up the Fury fight since he can’t sell tickets, and then we’ll know who sold the pay per view.”
