Deontay Wilder Makes A Bold Promise After Tyson Fury's Rematch Prediction
Deontay Wilder has vowed that he will retire from boxing should Tyson Fury knock him out in their blockbuster rematch.
The 34-year-old WBC champ will trade blows with Brit superstar Fury on 22nd February at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
And Fury, 31, has already ruled out plans to win on points and promised that he would knock Wilder out in the second round.
"I am going to knock him out in the second round, he is going down inside two rounds," he said.
"I keep having dreams where I knock him out in round two and I have been playing a lot of poker and getting dealt lots of twos, it is definitely a sign.
"He is 100 per cent getting knocked out in two rounds -- he can laugh about it now but he will be looking up from his back inside two."
Wilder dismissed the idea that the 'Gypsy King' would live up to his pre-fight prediction and said he's "done" with boxing if he manages to pull it off.
The 'Bronze Bomber' told TMZ: "Nobody believes that. Him saying he's going to knock me out in the second round is non-believable.
"He has pillows as fists so I can't see that happening.
"I already have six years left in the sport, but if he gets me out in the second round?
"Knock me out? I'm done, bro. I'm done. Period."
Wilder and Fury initially clashed in December 2018 and the WBC champ kept hold of his title thanks to a controversial draw.
Earlier this week, the two boxing superstars met for the first time since their initial fight during a press conference for the rematch.
And KO artist Wilder aimed a brutal dig at Fury over his status as the lineal champion, saying he carries "something that's make-believe and fake."
