Fury To Wilder: Nobody With An Alter Ego Can Beat Me!

Tyson Fury had some choice words for WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, when they sat down for a face to face special with BT Sport.

Fury will challenge Wilder for his WBC heavyweight title on December 1 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Showtime Pay-Per-View and BT Sport Box Office will carry the event.

For Fury, this will be his third fight of the year since napping a long layoff - as the unbeaten challenger has been inactive since November of 2015.


Wilder is a very huge favorite to win the fight.

With an undefeated record of 40 wins and 39 of them by knockout - the champion has knocked out every single opponent in the ring.

The one man to go the distance with Wilder in 2015, former champion Bermane Stiverne, was knocked out in a single round when they collided in a rematch last fall.

Wilder always warns, that he becomes the "Bronze Bomber" when he steps in the ring.

But Fury views that Bronze Bomber persona as a big weakness in the fight.

"You're already beaten. Anyone who has to have an alter ego and not be themselves in there, can't beat me. You're looking at a man who stands in the light, I can't be beaten by any alter ego. I can't be beat. I've already beaten you. I came here today thinking me and you were similar but sitting around this table I know that me and you are so worlds apart," Fury said to Wilder.

"I look to nothing to come inside me and win fights, only the power of God above - that's it. I don't get the power from anything else, I don't need a second person to come and help me. I've already beaten people like you many, many times. I bump into people like you every single day of my life and I give them the same answer."
