Wilder Will Be Just Another Tick On The Record
For Tyson Fury, nothing is more important than defeating Deontay Wilder on February 22nd and finally gain the WBC world heavyweight title.
“I’m not here to run him down,” Fury said of his rival ahead of their highly anticipated rematch inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. “It only makes my victory look s****y on the night, don’t it?”
“I want people to think he’s the best puncher in history, the greatest boxer in history, the longest-reigning champion ever, the best there ever was,” notes Fury of Wilder, who has knocked out every person he’s faced but Fury. “So, when I beat him February 22, then it makes my victory look even sweeter.
“But when I look back and really face facts, when I beat Deontay Wilder, I’ve just beaten another bare bum in the shower with a pair of boxing gloves on. Just another tick on the record, just another man on the street. That’s all he is, just another person to me.”
