Tyson Fury Eerily Predicted His Path To Top Of The Boxing World In 2013 Tweet
Tyson Fury eerily predicted that the biggest fight of his era would be him against Deontay Wilder and insisted that he would knock him out.
The 31-year-old Brit superstar dropped his fierce rival twice en route to a seventh-round stoppage in their blockbuster rematch last Saturday.
And Fury, who vowed to KO Wilder in the build-up to their rematch, sent out a clear-cut warning to the former WBC champ back in 2013.
The 'Gypsy King' was involved in a heated spat on social media after Wilder called him out on Twitter.
"The biggest fight of my era will be @BronzeBomber! But ill [sic] knock him out!" Fury tweeted.
Wilder, who suffered his first professional loss to Fury, wasted no time in firing back at his rival before the 'Gypsy King' doubled down on his claim.
Fury tweeted: "I can't wait to knock u out. Chump."
Former WBC champ Wilder responded by suggesting that he wanted to show Fury "how your own blood taste[s]!"

But on the night in Las Vegas Fury busted the 'Bronze Bomber' open and appeared to lick his blood during the fight.
Wilder, who has the option to trigger a rematch clause, has vowed to return "even stronger" after his defeat to Fury.
"My side threw in the towel, I was ready to go out on my shield," the 34-year-old KO artist said.
"I had a lot of things going on coming into this fight. I make no excuse, I wish my corner let me go out on my shield. No excuses, I will come back and be stronger.
"Even the greatest lose, that's part of it. You take it for what it is. I had a lot of complications, we'll come back even stronger. This is what heavyweight boxing is all about.
"I hope everyone at home enjoyed the fight. Thank you for coming out."
