DEONTAY WILDER will knock out Tyson Fury and move on to fight for the undisputed heavyweight title.
The American will bid to avenge the seventh-round TKO defeat he suffered at the hands of the WBC heavyweight champion last February on October 9 in Las Vegas.
Wilder, 35, goes into his trilogy fight with the undefeated Gypsy King as a huge underdog.
But head coach Malik Scott is confident he’ll move on to a clash with the winner of Anthony Joshua’s clash with Oleksandr Usyk with a brutal KO.
He said: “He will KO Fury and will never lose another fight afterwards. Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk is next.”
Defeat to Fury was the first of Wilder’s professional career, in which he’s knocked out all but one of his 39 career opponents.
And the Olympic bronze medallist is hellbent on inflicting a world of pain on the Brit in their second Sin City showdown.
He said: “My mind is very violent. ‘We built a whole facility to commit a legal homicide and that’s just what it is, my mind is very violent at this time.

“I can’t wait, when you’re contemplating and pre-meditating about harming a man and you see that person, what you’ve been thinking and feeling will come out.
“The only thing about it is, at that point in time, I have to wait until I get in the ring to really release because I can’t do it on the outside, it’d defeat the purpose.
“The baby’s got to eat, but when I do get in the ring, this is what I love about it, I’m able to release everything I’ve been feeling, everything I’ve been thinking, and get paid to do it.”
Fury, 33, doesn’t foresee his one-dimensional opponent doing anything different in their third bout, saying: “I gave my game plan away the first time because he wasn’t good enough to do anything about it.
“And I’ll do the same thing this time because he’s not good enough to do anything about it.
“Deontay Wilder is a one-trick pony. He’s got one-punch power, we all know that – great.
“But what I’m going to do to Deontay Wilder this time is I’m going to run him over as if I’m an 18-wheeler and he’s a human being.
“I guarantee he does not go past where he did before [the seventh round].
“Because before, I only had five or six weeks practicing what I’m going to do to him.
“This time, I’ve had 18 months of practicing what I’m going to do to him.
“So I anticipate it’s going to be like an 18-wheeler running over somebody, and that’s what you’re gonna see.
“I’m building my weight up, trying to get up to 300lbs for this fight. Because I’m looking for a big knockout straight away.”
