"You're going to sleep in two rounds" I Tyson Fury predicts outcome of rematch with Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury believes he will need a knockout against Deontay Wilder in their rematch in Las Vegas on February 22nd.

The heavyweight meeting between the two in 2018 ended in a draw, a fight that Fury outboxed Wilder in but the American put Fury down twice.

However, many felt Fury had still done enough to earn the win so the 31-year-old has decided a change of approach for the rematch is necessary.

Speaking at a press conference in Los Angeles last night Fury predicted an early finish against Wilder.

"You're going to sleep in two rounds, I keep having the same dream and when I'm playing poker I keep getting dealt two.

"It's definitely a thing. He is getting knocked out in two.

"I want him to meet me in the middle of the ring and the best man wins. I'm going to give him a boxing lesson."

Fury announced a change of trainer last month with Ben Davison replaced by Javan 'Sugar' Hill, the nephew of the late Emmanuel Steward.

Ireland's Andy Lee will also be Fury's corner as they look to inflict a first defeat on Wilder.

Fury wants to make sure the rematch doesn't go to the scorecards this time around.

"I know I will not get a decision in the US.

"They had to rob a man who had been out of the ring for three years and they still couldn't beat him.

"I'm not coming here for a points decision, I've had too many of them - nine of them - I'm coming here for a knockout, I've had 21 of them and from the heart that's what I'm looking to do.

"This is why I employed Sugar Hill. If I didn't want a knockout, I wouldn't have hired a Kronk trainer.

"If I didn't want a knockout, I'd have kept Ben Davison and working on that herky-jerky style."
