Deontay Wilder will meet Tyson Fury for a third time on Saturday, Oct. 9 in Las Vegas.
At grand arrivals on Tuesday, Fury spoke with the media and offered up some interesting perspective around a number of wide-ranging topics related to his showdown with Wilder.
We rounded up some of Fury’s best quotes about the fight.
On possibility that Wilder has improved:
“No matter what Deontay Wilder does, I’m still going to knock him the f— out.”
On Wilder not accepting the loss from last fight:
“It just shows you that I’m living in WIlder’s mind rent free the whole time, two years. Every time he looks in the mirror, he sees Tyson Fury. Every time he goes to bed before he closes his eyes at night, he sees the Gypsy King. And everything he wakes up and thinks about in the morning, he thinks about Tyson Fury… It must be crazy to be obsessed with a man like me.”
On his preparation before the fight:
“Can’t tell with the Gypsy King. I’m magic, I’m like Houdini.”
On this being Round 20 of their fight:
“Wilder’s the biggest puncher in the history of our sport, but I’ve got the biggest balls in the history of our sport, as I’ve proved many, many times.”
On Wilder as a person:
“I think the guy’s a real piece of s—, he’s a real piece of work. And nobody and nothing will ever change my mind.”
On hoping Wilder has improved his fighting:
“I’m really hoping he’s improved because I’m here for a fight and I want a challenge. I didn’t come all over America and be undefeated for 13 years not to get a challenge… I hope he’s 50/60 percent better than he was the year before because I know I’ve gotten better. I don’t need to get better, because there’s an old saying if it’s not broken don’t fix it.”
