MGM GRAND, Las Vegas, NV - The always boastful Tyson Fury has made many bold statements over the years but his recent prediction of a 2nd round knockout victory over Deontay Wilder was bold even for him.

Experts are split on who is going to win this 50-50 showdown but most feel if Fury wins it will be via his superior boxing skills leading him to a decision victory over the more powerful Wilder.

Fury lost close to 130 pounds in the lead up to their first encounter and spent a lot of that training camp working on getting in shape. He said that his camp for the rematch was even better.

"I felt fantastic then and I feel even better now. I have had a good training camp. Everything went really well for me in training. I couldn't of done anything more. I am feeling ready to go. I have not left any stones unturned. Every box has been ticked and I have finished the training and all that has to be done," Fury stated.

As for the early knockout prediction, Fury stated that his power has been on full display during his training camp.

"Well, being that I have knocked all of my sparring partners out cold then yeah, I am definitely looking like a beast," Fury told
