Tyson Fury thinks Deontay Wilder is “very nervous” ahead of their WBC heavyweight face-off as the pair almost came to blows Wednesday.
Fury and Wilder took on at a press conference simply days from their rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and they pushed each other prior to being separated.
Fury, who drew with Wilder in their previous bout in December 2018, thinks his opponent is revealing indications of nerves.

“Wilder is very nervous. I can see his jumper going in and out from the big heart beat pounding out of his chest,” Fury stated.
“He’s terrified. He’s nervous as hell. He doesn’t know what to expect, and he’s getting knocked out.”
Wilder chuckled off Fury’s recommendation ahead of Saturday’s face-off, where he will protect his WBC title.
“When I knock you out, go do stand-up comedy. You’ve got a career there,” Wilder informedFury “You’ve got pillows for fists and that’s why I kept running through you.”
