WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is expecting to beat Deontay Wilder in even quicker fashion than their February 2020 rematch.
Last year, Fury dropped Wilder twice before stopping him in the seventh round to capture the WBC world title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Wilder would then exercise an immediate rematch clause to force a third fight - which is going to take place on July 24 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Wilder has made several allegations against Fury - including claims that the unbeaten heavyweight had manipulated his gloves, loaded them with egg weights, and even had someone spike the water bottle in the corner.
"Clearly he’s suffered his first mental breakdown since I gave him his first defeat. Not surprising really. I injured him heavily. As well as the torn biceps he kept going on about he ended up with a ruptured shoulder, while I also gave him a cracked skull and two burst ear-drums," Fury told Daily Mail.
"I smashed him to pieces. He felt like he’d been run over by an 18-wheeler. Make that a six-foot-niner. Then he lost the plot completely with all those mad allegations. I haven’t spoken to him since that night but he’s had a lot of mental issues. I would be the best person to help him. I will if he wants. Maybe not before July 24.
"I hope he brings a lot more to the ring than last time. That was a one-sided beat-down but I love real challenges. I didn’t think he would take the trilogy fight but he’s proved me wrong. Either he’s a glutton for punishment or he’s just coming for the money. Because he knows he can’t win. At least it will be over quicker for him. He won’t last seven rounds this time."
