Tyson Fury sent the following message to Deontay Wilder after ‘The Bronze Bomber’ predicted a KO victory in three rounds or less in their upcoming heavyweight trilogy bout at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday.
“Ya little b***h. Turn up and fight. Get me knocked out in 3 rounds ya little p***y. How about that for a message?” Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, told TMZ Sports ahead of the rematch.
‘The Gypsy King’s’ comments come after Wilder guaranteed a highlight-reel knockout on Saturday night.
“Leave it up to my trainers, they believe 5 and under,” Wilder said, “I’m gonna go with 3, lesser than 3.”
“Ya know when people come to see heavyweights, that’s what they wanna see. They don’t wanna see no 12-round fight.”
As for Fury’s prediction, the 6 ft 9 in heavyweight anticipates “pain! A lot of pain!”
Fury is undefeated after 31 pro fights. The Mancunian fought Wilder to a draw in 2018 but won last year’s rematch via 7th-round TKO.
The highly anticipated trilogy bout takes place this Saturday, Oct. 9 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
