Former division king Tyson Fury is confident that he'll outbox and overcome the dangerous punching power of WBC heavyweight title Deontay Wilder.
Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) was back in action last Saturday night in Belfast, and won an easy ten round unanimous decision over world title challenger Francesco Pianeta.
After the contest, Fury announced that he finalized a deal to challenge Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) for his WBC belt on a November date, in Las Vegas.
Wilder, who knocked out every opponent that he ever faced in the ring, is regarded as one of the most dangerous one-punch hitters in the entire sport.
Fury cautions that Wladimir Klitschko had a similar reputation - and the Gypsy King outboxed him in a huge upset back in November of 2015 in Germany.
Fury is not worried about Wilder's power - because he's confident the of defensively nullifying Wilder's big punches.
"It's alright having massive, massive power but if you can't land it, you've lost. Wladimir Klitschko had massive power - 'Dr. Steelhammer'. He had one of the biggest punching right hands in the history of boxing and he did land it but not effectively and not cleanly because I'm always riding the shots, Fury said.
"It's very hard to land cleanly on me nowadays. I have been over twice before, by [Neven] Pakjic and [Steve] Cunningham, but I'm a different fighter now. I don't walk square on, I don't rush, I take my time. Cool, calm, collected and calculated, thinking about my job.
"I'm very awkward to land on and I'll give Wilder his credit but I've not got a glass chin. I can take punches and I'll be there to fight. I'm not going to be there to play games. I'm going to make him miss and make him pay. I think his style is tailor-made for mine with his big, awkward, wild swings and I believe that I'm a better boxer than him, technically."
