Fury: You Saw What Happened To Whyte, I Won't Overlook Wilder

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is not going to overlook his upcoming opponent, Deontay Wilder, when they collided for a third time on a tentative date of December 19.

Wilder and Fury fought to a controversial twelve round split draw in December 2018.

In their February rematch, Fury dominated Wilder and stopped him in the seventh round at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Fury was a very interested party this past Saturday night, as he watched Alexander Povetkin score a dramatic fifth round knockout of Dillian Whyte, who was Fury's mandatory challenger.

Fury believes the outcome once again provided that he's a level above the rest.

“The fact of the matter is I don't need any of their fighters, they need me. I'm the only undefeated world heavyweight champion out there. All the rest have been beaten, left by the wayside, stopped and battered. They need me. I'm a standalone Gypsy King giant ruling the division, ruling the roost," Fury told BT Sport.

“I don't need any of their money, I don't need what they can bring to the table, but for the fans you want the biggest fight possible and the biggest fight out there now is me against Joshua. They have nothing to lose, they've already been knocked out and beat. I'm the only one who has got something to lose, that big 0 (no defeats) I'm carrying around with me.

“All these boxers, the Joshuas, the Chisoras, the Whytes, the Povetkins, all these people are on a similar level. I see them as four, fives and sixes. And at any time they can take each other out. It shows you what level they're at.”

And based on what happened in Whyte-Povetkin, Fury is firmly fixated on Wilder. 

“As you saw on Saturday, if you overlook someone you get banged on the chin,” Fury said.

“I just want to concentrate on Deontay Wilder, the most dangerous fighter on the planet and history has ever had. I know Deontay Wilder is the most dangerous heavyweight fighter out there.”

[QUOTE=jackblack008;20727454]Anyone here thinks Wilder has a chance after the battering in March?[/QUOTE] I believe he has a chance. About one in a hundred.

[QUOTE=Boxviewer;20727412]But before the knock out he was outboxing Povetkin, leading in all cards.[/QUOTE] People said the same thing about the Marquez-Pac 4 fight and look how that ended..........

[QUOTE=Jkp;20728153]I see a devastating Breazeale style ko, for whyte. I think wilder lines him up with ease. Midgets like rivas and Povetkin dropped him, a heavy weight with reach and power of Wilder would line him up with ease.[/QUOTE] Povetkin…
