Tyson Fury predicted he would knock Deontay Wilder out in the second round of their rematch next month.
Fury and Wilder will finally face off again at MGM Grand on February 22 in their highly anticipated rematch, having drawn their first fight in December 2018.
Unsurprisingly, the Brit (29-0-1) believes he will be successful, predicting a second-round KO of Wilder.
“Deontay knows he was rocked three or four times in the last fight and I didn’t have the gas to finish him. This time I can turn that screwdriver until he is gone,” he told a news conference on Monday.
“You are going to sleep in two rounds. I keep having the same dream about round two. I am playing poker and I get dealt the number two card.
“He is getting knocked out in round two, 100 per cent.”
Wilder, the WBC heavyweight title holder, responded by questioning whether Fury truly believed in his own comments.
“I mean that’s what he believes in his heart. That’s what he believes. I always teach people when I speak – I say speak it, believe it, receive it,” the American said.
