Tyson Fury states Deontay Wilder is “running scared” ahead of the set’s heavyweight rematch in Las Vegas on Saturday.
Fury and Wilder will revive their intense competition at the MGM Grand Arena, 14 months after a controversial split attract Los Angeles.
Former unified world champ Fury believed he had actually done enough to win on points at Staples Center, though 2 knockdowns from Wilder in the ninth and 12 th rounds, respectively, eventually showed expensive.

There has actually been no love lost in between the fighters in the lead- as much as Saturday’s rematch, however Fury is persuaded he has the upper hand, including that he does not fear taking another punch of the quality that Wilder landed in the final round in December 2018.
“He’s on the back foot already, he’s running scared,” Fury informed Omnisport.

” It was excellent[to take the punch] It’s good to take a big right-hand man like that once in a while. It’s what I train for and what I earn money for. It was charming to do some work for the pay.
” It was a lapse in concentration. I feel great and the training school has actually worked out, completely. It won’ t take place once again.
” Not stressed at all[about taking a big punch] It’s what I earn money to do, train hard and battle hard.”
Fury went back from boxing in 2019 to venture into expert wrestling. He beat Braun Strowman in his WWE debut, at the Crown Gem event in Saudi Arabia, by count-out, and the 31- year-old thinks the training program he went through ahead of his wrestling bow has actually provided him the advantage versus Wilder.
“[The training for wrestling] has actually assisted enormously for sure,” Fury stated. “There’s a massive difference, almost unbelievable, between training for something like that and a world title fight. It’s more about agility and speed, definitely.”
