- Fury is the only hunter who survives until the last bell, but Wilder feels bullish
Deontay Wilder claims that he is ‘the toughest batter in history’, because he wants to score a score with Tyson Fury this weekend.
The praised power of the heavyweight champion of the WBC has earned him 41 knockouts from his 42 opponents, with only Fury surviving to the last bell.
However, even he was briefly unconscious by a 12th-round attack in their 2018 collision, just to get up somehow and draw on the scorecards.

Wilder from Alabama is convinced that Fury will not survive a second time.
“I’ve always had power,” said the 34-year-old for Saturday’s rematch in Las Vegas. “I always tell the story of how my grandmother said that I was anointed by God, that God is trying to use me for things.
‘It’s just about living, coming into this world and finding your purpose in life. I think I have found one of my goals in life, and that is of course foolish and taking names. And I do that very well.
“I’m just blessed. It’s one of those things. I cannot describe how it happened. If you have a calling in your life, it is exactly that. I just have a calling in my life and I give my greatness my service, I show the world who I am and what I am. The champion is not going anywhere. “

Wilder, a first-class talker in a matter of motor mouths, however, shares the honor for his fierce cruelty.
“Most of these things become muscle memory for me,” he said. ‘When I prepare for a hunter, the preparation for the fight is always great. I always have great sparring partners who come in and give me a great look that mimics the opponents.
“So when it’s time to fight with them, there are certain things, there is a look. I have the best coaches in the world (Jay Deas and Mark Breland) and none of my coaches ever get recognition and they are never recognized.

“You have one of the worst men on the planet, the hardest batter in history, and none of my coaches is recognized for their greatness.
‘They do a great job scouting my sparring partners, so that I have the best possible (preparation) to fight against some of these guys. They study many films to identify mistakes my opponent makes. So when I’m in the ring, I understand that and I can recognize it. It becomes a muscle memory. “
Wilder, who shows off victories, has won Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz since the first Fury fight, adding, “If you have power, it’s a blessing and a curse.”
“It’s a blessing, because when I hit boys, they are hurt or go to the canvas. And it’s a curse, I feel, because I have so much power that when I hit things, I either hurt my opponent or hurt myself and that’s it, there’s nothing in between. “
