Tyson Fury claims he should quit if he cannot beat Deontay Wilder .

After being respectful towards Wilder in the build-up to their rematch at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in the early hours of Sunday, Fury has savaged the WBC heavyweight king.

Fury derided Wilder, despite his unbeaten record, and says he should hang up his gloves if he does not win. “I’m not putting pressure on myself, but if I cannot beat Deontay Wilder then I’m no good,” said the undefeated Gypsy King. “I won’t go down as a great or a champion. I will go back to Morecambe and never sniff boxing again in my life. I will be s**t, total s**t. That’s how confident I am of kicking him all over that ring. There is no losing and if he wants a rematch then he will lose again.”

Fury, 31, dismissed Wilder’s 42-0-1 record, claiming it has been padded out with “stiffs”. He contrasted Wilder’s CV with his and says he has been in competitive fights since beating John McDermott in his eighth contest to claim the English heavyweight title for the first time.
“People go on about his knockout power and him being the biggest puncher in heavyweight history, but it’s who you’ve fought that counts,” he said. “Let’s not make any mistakes here, Deontay Wilder has fought 35 stiffs.Honestly, over here in America they call his level of opposition tomato cans. He has only had probably seven competitive fights, where people have actually tried to fight back. The rest were duck-egg dummies, only there to fall over. I’ve always been in fights that I could lose, that’s the difference between me and Wilder. Wilder’s KO power and ratio is padded. If you are fighting and knocking out real opposition, that would impress me. But I look at Wilder’s resume and he has fought a few former football players, a few has-beens and a load of bums.

“The only good man he’s ever faced was me and I beat him after three years out when I was as weak as a robin at 17st 11oz with two shoulders on me like coathangers, and he still couldn’t beat me. Wilder is not going to beat me, his power isn’t going to hurt me, it will bounce off me like I’m bulletproof.”
Fury clearly enjoyed rubbishing Wilder as he spoke at the offices of his US promoter Top Rank, just off The Strip, and claimed their controversial draw was one of his easiest fights. “He was exactly what I expected to be honest,” he said. “I’m not going to pussyfoot about the matter, Wilder was one of the easiest fights I’ve ever had. Apart from the two knockdowns, it was a lopsided, one-sided mis-match in boxing skill and everything. I’ve been involved in harder fights all the way through my career.”Photo Credit: Getty
