Fury: I'll Show My Power - I'll Make Deontay Wilder Quit!

Tyson Fury is few days away from his highly anticipated rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

They will collide this Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Back in December 2018, they fought to a controversial twelve round split draw at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Fury insists that he's pursuing a knockout victory in the rematch - because he doesn't trust the contest heading to the official judges.

To meet that goal, he dropped head trainer Ben Davison and replaced him with Unites States coach SugarHill Steward.

Fury does not intend to dance around and move like he did in the first bout. He wants to stay close to Wilder and test his chin as much as possible. He even believes the unbeaten champion will quit at some point in the fight from incoming punishment.

"The bigger the risk, the bigger the reward. I know that is not the strategy Ben would have taken but that is why Ben is not training me for this fight, because I don’t need that strategy," Fury told BT Sport.

"What I did last time was fantastic but it wasn’t good enough to get me the victory. It had to be changed. It is very risky walking on to a puncher, but you won’t knock him out by dancing around the ring for twelve rounds. I have to knock this guy out, simple as.

"Anyone who thinks Wilder can’t be knocked down is an idiot. I will prove how powerful I am. I am going to make him quit."
