USA: May the best man win! Wilder and Fury talk the talk ahead of Las Vegas bout

United States, Las Vegas
February 19, 2020 at 01:26 GMT +00:00 · Published

British heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury and reigning WBC champion Deontay Wilder took to the stage at MGM Grand Las Vegas, on Tuesday, ahead of their match on Saturday.

"The fans are the only winners here, on Saturday night, because we both have a lot to lose, we are going to put on an entertaining fight and may the best man win," said Fury.

He went further, promising his fans a great show. "They can expect the most exciting fight in the last 50 years see in the heavyweight division. Me and Deontay are putting all on the line, and I know he is coming for a fight and I know I'm definitely coming for a fight."

In response, Wilder said "It's going to be an amazing feeling due to the fact that this is my 11 consecutive title defence" and vowed, "my goal is to have one champion, one face, one name, in the heavyweight division."

During their fight back in December 2018, the 'Gypsy King' won most of the rounds, but the 'Bronze Bomber' knocked Fury down twice.

Fury claimed that he should have been declared the winner on points while Wilder complained that the referee started the count late when the Mancunian was on the floor in the 12th. Both fighters left undefeated while Wilder retained the WBC heavyweight title.

The pair will meet on Saturday, February 22 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
