Tyson Fury Says He's Going To Knockout Deontay Wilder During Intense Face Off
Tyson Fury predicted he'd stop Deontay Wilder in the second round during their intense face off at the pre-fight press conference.
Fury and Wilder came face-to-face for the first time since their heavyweight world title bout was officially confirmed for February 22 in Las Vegas.
The pair held a press conference in Los Angeles as Fury and Wilder exchanged words before going head-to-head where the undefeated fighters continued to argue.
"Didn't I say I was gonna baptize that ass," Wilder said to which Fury replied by saying: "I'm still waiting to be baptized."
Fury then aimed a dig at Wilder's attire: "But I least you started to listen to me. Copying me with the suits. I gave you a little bit of dress sense, you sucker."
I told you before our first fight that I was going to baptize you. And I did. But not even God can save you the second time around. I promise you that. :crown::fist: #BombZquad #TilThisDay #WilderFury2 #February22 pic.twitter.com/ADRJHQEhgq- Deontay Wilder (@BronzeBomber) January 13, 2020

The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' continued to bicker in Wilder's face and issued his prediction for their fight.
"Two rounds and out. Two rounds," he said. "I'm gonna hit you at the point of the chin. The legs are going to go."
Wilder then said he wants Fury to be "terrified" ahead of their second fight to which Fury replied by saying: "I'm absolutely sh**ting myself. I'm frightened. I was so frightened last time, want I?"
Wilder added: "It's okay to be nervous." Fury replied: "I am nervous. I'm scared to death."
Since their first showdown in December 2018, both fighters have picked up two wins each. Wilder has defended his WBC title against Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz while Fury has defeated Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin.
Who wins the rematch? Let us know.
