And according to Fury’s father John, the Gypsy King has designated December as the month for that spectacle — he’s confident he’ll beat Wilder again after controversially drawing the first fight before putting him in the rematch.
“He’s trying to get Joshua in December,” Fury told senior GiveMeSport. “We are going for that fight this year.
“Because we don’t see Wilder as a threat at all if he’s done the camp right.
“If he’s done everything to the letter, Wilder’s no problem, he’s got his number, hit him twice, hit him like a rag doll, beat him to a pulp last time.
“Wilder has nothing to offer him at all, just that big blow.
“And believe me, what I see in the new trainer, we also know a lot about him, so we have no fear at all.”
