Deontay Wilder has claimed that Tyson Fury has “pillow fists” as he stated that the unbeaten British star isn’t blessed with punching power.

The Gypsy King however vowed to knockout the WBC king within two rounds when the pair face off for their rematch on February 22 in Las Vegas.
Speaking at a press conference in Los Angeles on Saturday, the two heavyweights were once again embroiled in a war or words as they referenced their epic first encounter that ended in a draw.
The Bronze Bomber declared: “I don’t think he has the power to knock me out, we have not seen that. We have seen a couple of knockouts but nothing as regular as mine. Tyson is a skilful fighter but you cannot have it all. I said he had pillow fists at the hands.”

Fury – who has 20 knockouts from his 30 fights – insisted he is willing to meet Wilder in the centre of the ring and trade punches with the fearsome KO artist.
He vowed: “I will knock him out in two rounds, in the first I tried to outbox him but I did not win. I am happy he doesn’t think I am a big puncher, the stats don’t lie, he is a far bigger one-hit puncher than me. But I don’t believe anyone can match me for heart and determination. Only one of us can win and I am not afraid to go mano-e-mano with the biggest puncher in history.”

While he also added: “Even if I hate this guy, I have to respect his record, he has knocked out every opponent apart from me. Deontay has amazing power and even when it comes to our verbal blows, I have to respect that.”
The winner of next month’s bout is expected to face Anthony Joshua in a blockbuster bout for the chance to become the first undisputed heavyweight champ since Lennox Lewis in 1999.
