What have the fighters said?

Wilder: “Every word he has said he has now got to back up.

“People have been saying we are friends and we are too nice but that goes out of the window when we fight, it’s war.

“He says he was born to do it but I never saw it at the Olympic or with a medal, where was he?”

Fury: “Wilder needs me, do not mistake that, he has been the WBC champion since 2015 and made seven defences but is still unknown in this country so they have brought in a big-mouth Brit and the best fighter on the planet.

“It is a good stunt, get a good hiding from Tyson Fury, get famous and then come back and fight someone else.

“He could not make it as a basketball player or an american footballer so he tried boxing.”

FIGHT PREDICTION

By Wally Downes Jr, boxing correspondent

 

Who would have never thought Tyson Fury would be here.

18 months ago he was morbidly obese and on a suicide mission.

Now I reckon he’s on a split decision path from a higher power.
