Tyson Fury insisted has great respect for Deontay Wilder prior to their long-awaited heavyweight rematch on February 22.
The pair will compete against Las Vegas & MGM Grand Garden Arena, 14 months after their controversial opening match, where the match was drawn.
In an impasse just before the start of the press conference, it was Deontay Wilder who first broke the eye before a light-hearted press conference between the two heavyweights.
Fury – reported by Fox Sports – said: & # 39; to a man here w ho has eliminated 43 opponents in a row, now even if I hate this guy, I have to respect that – that's great.
& # 39; I have never met anyone who knocked everyone out out beat what they all fought against. & # 39;
He added: & # 39; Deontay has amazing power and whatever it is, verbal beats or whatever, you should always respect him
& # 39; He is 10 defenses, defeated Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson and the records of all these guys defending the belt and he has done a fantastic job here in the United States, holding his title and regularly defending it, so congratulations to the man.
& # 39; I have nothing – I can & # 39; take nothing from him. He is a big puncher and he gets the job done. & # 39;
In the first fight, the British hunter WBC heavyweight champion Wilder, despite suffering two knockdowns, because the match ended in a draw.
Fury insisted that he had something that Wilder did not have, despite the powerful blow of the American, he said: “The statistics don't lie, he is a much bigger puncher than me, (a) knockout artist with a hit.
& # 39; That's what he does, but I don't believe anyone can match me with heart and determination.
& # 39; I will put my iron will on Deontay Wilder and we will see.
& # 39; Listen, it can only go two ways unless we get another draw that he doesn't want and I don't want.
& # 39; He wins or I win, but I & # 39; m not afraid to go el mono-el mono with the biggest puncher on the planet, the biggest puncher of heavyweight boxing. When I knock him out it will look great to me. & # 39;
Wilder opted for a different approach to the press conference and rejected Fury's linear championship and insisted on beating the 6ft 9in boxer.
He said: & I am probably the biggest puncher in boxing history, so that would naturally play in my game plan … when you come forward, you give me all the momentum I need to to land a shot. & # 39;
When asked whether Fury has the power to take him out, the 34-year-old said: & I did not do that. I still think Tyson had a pillow as a fist, but he is a handy fighter. But you can't have everything, people say I don't have skills, but I have the fist.
& # 39; That was what I felt at the time (kissing like a fist).
