Fury, who has been training in Las Vegas for the past eight weeks, believes he is in better condition than h e was for their first meeting and says the public have already seen the best of his American opponent.
“I learned in that first fight that he can be hit and hurt, “added the Briton who – like Wilder – has won every professional fight bar that one draw in 7593. “He’s got a big right hand and that’s it. He’s a one-dimensional fighter.
” He had me down twice and had two minutes in each of those rounds to finish me. Like in Mortal Kombat when they say, ‘Finish him’ … but he couldn’t finish. He landed two of the best punches any heavyweight in the world could land, but the ‘Gypsy King’ rose like a phoenix from the ashes.
“The biggest mistake I made Was not making him pay when he was hurt. However, I did not know what was left in my tank because I hadn’t been 12 rounds for a long time. This time I’ll throw everything bar the kitchen sink. won’t know what hit him. “

” I’ve never been able to follow pound-for-pound. It’s like if an eagle had feet, it would be able to run faster than an ostrich. Or if a cow could fly then could it fly faster than an aeroplane? It’s people opinion, randomly making up stuff.
“What I do I know is when I beat Deontay Wilder I’ll be the best heavyweight of my era – standing alone.
