Boxing Match: Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder both vowed to land crushing knockouts as they arrived in Las Vegas for their heavyweight grudge match.
Fury and Wilder spoke to the media outside the T-Mobile Arena, the site of their trilogy bout, before settling their bitter rivalry in this weekend’s WBC title fight.
The British star has pledged to deliver another harsh victory after stopping Wilder in the seventh round of their rematch in February last year to win the WBC title.
“It’s going to be exciting,” Fury said. “Wilder is a devastating puncher, and the heavyweight environment has shifted dramatically in recent months. But I’m still on form and doing what I have to do.
“On Saturday night, I’m going to knock him spark out, and I can’t wait to get him in the ring and give him nice hiding.
“I might even go slowly with him. I’m thinking of taking it slowly and punishing him. ‘No mas,’ make him say.”
Wilder, on the other hand, is adamant that he would exact catastrophic vengeance after plotting Fury’s defeat with new head trainer Malik Scott.
“I feel terrific, I feel amazing,” Wilder added.
“I’ve been revitalised and remade, and I’m ready to go.
“Saturday night is going to be something extraordinary. Fans are in for a treat, as they usually are when the ‘Bronze Bomber’ enters the ring.”
When asked about a prediction for the fight, the American said: “I envision myself thrashing him and knocking him out.
“Many things occurred to me during the first and second fights, and I failed to execute the game plan.
“But it’s just a different vibe this time. All of the time. The ambience. The total amount of energy.
“I’m looking forward to putting on a spectacular performance on October 9, and those in the arena will feel the electricity that’s in there.”
