Tyson Fury vows to ‘splatter’ rival Deontay Wilder and warns Anthony Joshua that Oleksandr Usyk has looked ‘s***’ on PURPOSE

Tyson Fury plans to make light work of Deontay Wilder and knock him out even faster than he managed in February 2020.

The ‘Gypsy King’ will lock horns with the outspoken American for the third time next month with the WBC heavyweight championship on the line.

Fury wrenched the belt from Wilder’s grasp when they met nearly 20 months ago in Las Vegas with a powerful and punishing display which ended in the seventh round.

Wilder was dropped heavily on two occasions and looked shell shocked at the power punching panache of Fury, who was mocked in the build up to the fight by the ‘Bronze Bomber’ and his team for lacking a killer instinct.

And with the trilogy fast approaching, Fury has made his intention clear.

“What’s going to happen is I’m going to run across the ring and knock the f*** out of Deontay Wilder,” he told Frank Warren’s Queensbury Promotions. “I’m going to plaster him.

“I’m going to be like a plasterer on the night, plastering walls.

“I’m going to splatter him in the ring. He’s getting knocked out for sure, 100 per cent. It was an easy fight the second time, and it’ll be an even easier time the third time. I’m knocking him out inside quick time.”

Provided Fury can dispatch of Wilder for a second time and Anthony Joshua can get rid of mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk, the prospect of finally seeing the two Brits collide will become a distinct possibility.

It is almost exactly a month to the day when Fury and Joshua were set to meet in Saudi Arabia for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world, only for boxing politics to get in the way.

Of course, even the best-laid plans in the heavyweight division can go awry as Joshua painfully found out two years ago against Andy Ruiz Jr in New York City.

Usyk represents a real danger to his fellow Olympic Gold medallist, with Tony Bellew proclaiming the Ukrainian is the ‘best boxer Joshua will ever face in his career.

And Fury believes the best is yet to come from the slick southpaw, who has flattered to deceive thus far since moving up from cruiserweight.

He added: “What I’ve seen from Usyk in the last two fights hasn’t been a lot, but then I had a little think about it, a brainstorm. Maybe he’s not showing us everything he can do.

“Maybe he [Usyk] was playing around with the likes of [Derek] Chisora and the other guy he fought, [Chazz] Witherspoon. Maybe he didn’t try and win those fights properly.

“Maybe he was looking bad on purpose so he could get that big payday and do his good boxing on that night, which has been done before.

“A lot of fighters have looked terrible in fights to get other big fights and then rose to the occasion and got those big fights.

“I got a sneaky feeling that Usyk is better than he looks, and on the night when he feels he needs to perform, then he will.

“A bit like myself. I can fight a bum and half a s*** fight, but I can then fight the best in the world and rise to the occasion and have good fights.”
