TYSON FURY has vowed to ‘smash’ Deontay Wilder in one round and boasted that he has his rival’s soul and mojo.
Fury is set for a trilogy bout with Wilder after a judge in arbitration ruled in favour of the American.
It meant the Gypsy King’s super-fight with Anthony Joshua, which was targeted for August 14 in Saudi Arabia, fell through at the final hurdle.
Fury has since officially put pen to paper on another fight with Wilder but warned it is over before the bell has even sounded.
He told his his US promotional team, Top Rank: “Wilder, this contract is signed.
“You’re getting smashed. When I say smashed, I mean smash, smash, smash, bang.
“You’re getting knocked out. End of. One round, you’re going. I’ve got your soul, your mojo, everything.”
Fury, 32, and Wilder, 35, first drew in 2018 before rematching two years later.
It ended in defeat for the Bronze Bomber in February 2020, but their contract included an immediate rematch.
That never came to fruition amid the coronavirus pandemic and the Fury’s team argued the stipulation expired in October.

As a result, they entered talks with Joshua all while Wilder took his case to civil court.
And after months the decision went his way, meaning Fury was faced with either fighting him or negotiating a step aside deal.
Both the WBC champion and Wilder had no intentions of putting together a compensation package, meaning the trilogy was on.
And it forced Joshua to turn to WBO mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk, 34, in the meantime.
And despite the undisputed title decider between the two leading heavyweights collapsing, Fury is still adamant he will face AJ this year.
He said: “I’ve got to beat up Deontay Wilder a bit better than I did last time, because he didn’t get a good enough hiding last time.
“This time I’m going to really double, double, treble smash him.
“100 per cent [I’ll fight Joshua]. AJ’s got a big mouth and no substance.
“He says I’m the one that does all the talking, but if I didn’t talk boxing would be stone dead because I’m the only character alive left in it.
“Let’s say that for a fact. [The Joshua fight] happens this year.
“I’m gonna deal with this mug, Deontay Wilder, I’m knocking him out cold, and then I’m going to deal with the other guy straightaway.”
