Fury Slams Wilder's Record: Former NFL Players, Has-Beens, Bums!

Tyson Fury does not see anything impressive about the ring record of WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

Both boxers have undefeated tallies in the pro ranks - with Wilder having a 42-0-1 record with 41 of those wins by knockout.

Wilder came close to knocking out Fury in December 2018, with the British boxer surviving a big knockdown in the twelfth and final round. The contest ended in a controversial twelve round split draw.

The rematch takes place on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Wilder has taken over as the betting favorite, even in the UK, after Fury was leading the way for most of the pre-fight promotion.

“Let's not make any mistakes here, Deontay Wilder has fought 35 stiffs. Honestly, over here in America they call his level of opposition ‘tomato cans’. If you are fighting and knocking our real opposition that would impress me, but I look at his résumé and he has fought a few former football ­players, a few has-beens and a load of bums," Fury told UK outlet Inews.

According to Fury, the first contest was very easy for him.

“It was an easy fight,” Fury said. “I’ve been involved in much harder fights in my career.

"Wilder’s inadequacies did not shock. He was exactly what I expected, a limited boxer with immense power. It was a one-sided mismatch in boxing skill and everything.”

Fury was very upset when the first bout was announced as a draw. To avoid the possibility of another controversial decision, Fury is planning to go for the knockout victory. He dropped his head trainer Ben Davison, and hired SugarHill Steward, to properly train with the sole goal of securing a knockout victory.

[QUOTE=JakeTheBoxer;20401539]No it is not. He fought prime undefeated Chisora and past prime Chisora. Chisora is clearly the most proven top 15 guy right now. Chisora is bigger name than guys like Washington, Arreola, Szpilka, Duhaupas, Ortiz.[/QUOTE] Chisora is garbage

[QUOTE=JakeTheBoxer;20401576]Ortiz is a bum, his biggest success is being stopped by Wilder. Twice. Again, Chisora beats every Wilder`s win. That will change if Wilder beats Fury.[/QUOTE] Del Boy's biggest success ? Price ? The opponents they beat look similar. I…

Ortiz is a bum, his biggest success is being stopped by Wilder. Twice. Again, Chisora beats every Wilder`s win. That will change if Wilder beats Fury.
