Fury: Wilder is a Basketball Player, I'm Knocking Him Spark Out

Lineal champion Tyson Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) feels very confident in his ability to unseat WBC world champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs), who is heavily favored to win their upcoming contest.

Wilder will defend his title against Fury on Saturday, December 1, live on Showtime Pay-Per-View from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

For Fury, it's his third fight of the year and his biggest challenge since scoring a shocking decision win over Wladimir Klitschko in November of 2015 in Germany.

Wilder has knocked out every opponent that he ever faced in the ring - with Bermane Stiverne, who went the distance in 2015 - getting obliterated in one round in their 2017 rematch.

Fury had been inactive for over two years after beating Klitschko, and finally made his return in April of this year.

Most believe Fury took the Wilder bout way too soon and should have had a few more fights to shake off the rust.

But Fury feels ready and certainly appears to be in proper physical shape for the contest.

"I beat men like you seven days a week. The Brits were afraid of you, the other s***house didn't want to fight you, but I fight any man born from his mother's c*** and you're no different. I'm knocking you spark out," Fury said during their face to face on BT Sport.

Fury does not view Wilder as a career fighter. He believes the unbeaten champion was originally looking to enter another sport, and took up boxing after striking out. Wilder captured a bronze medal in the 2008 Olympic games and turned pro in the same year.

"You're a basketball player. You came into boxing at 21 year old, I've been doing this all my life. I've beat men like you seven days a week," Fury said.

The winner would fall in line to potentially fight IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO champion Anthony Joshua in April of next year.

[QUOTE=Noelanthony;19189103]I agree with all your points it’s just Tyson depends heavily on reflex and though his reflex responses are very good, his predilection to carry a low guard whilst evading punches will be his undoing. I think Fury will make…

[QUOTE=LoadedWraps;19193152]It's based on lifestyle and nutrition, no actual age, bright one. And depression, being classified as a mental condition does not mean you are "mentally weak" in the way it was implied here. It's an ignorant take and if you…
