THE WAIT is finally over! Tyson Fury takes on Deontay Wilder in their huge trilogy fight this weekend.
Neither man has been in the ring since their last outing in February 2020, when Fury stopped the Bronze Bomber in seven thrilling rounds.
BETTING SPECIAL: GET 30/1 ON FURY OR 50/1 ON WILDER
After Wilder’s corner threw in the towel after a seven-round pummelling, the Bronze Bomber gave a whole host of excuses as to why he had lost.
One was that his ring-walk outfit was ‘too heavy’ and another was a ludicrous accusation that his coach Mark Breland had ‘spiked his water’
Speaking to PBC, Wilder said: “All I gotta do is half of that. He ain’t good, all I gotta do is half of that. He ain’t what people think. He a f***ing cheater.
“I feel great. I have a great team, everybody’s just on one accord. And when you have a team that’s on one accord it’s like the instructions come even clearer.
“And it’s like how can you go wrong when you have so many guys on the same page and looking for perfection.

“You’ll never be perfect but that don’t mean you can’t practice it and here we’re practising to make perfect so when I get in the ring won’t be no questions asked, won’t be going back to old habits and build right off what we’ve been working on in this camp.
“My hand will be raised high in the sky, and not because I whooped his ass in 12 rounds, but because I knocked him out.”
