Fury: Let's See if Wilder is Substance or Full of Hot Air!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (21-0, 15KOs) is pressing to fight Deontay Wilder (30-0, 30KOs) on February 8th in Manchester. Fury was scheduled to face former two division champion David Haye, who withdrew a few days ago from the fight. It was Haye's second withdrawal from the Fury bout. Last week Haye underwent shoulder surgery and doctors have advised him to retire from boxing. Wilder and his team have expressed their interest in facing Fury.

"Team Fury will do everything in [our] power to make [the] Deontay Wilder fight happen. It's up to Team Bomber now. I'm the best heavyweight on earth! Let's see if Wilder and his team are substance or just hot air. This fight will get every boxing fan in the world on their feet. Let's go," Fury stated on the social networks.

We'll see if one of these guys is a fraud.....maybe both. I don't see a lot of potential in either.
