Wilder replied by picking up his own microphone and loudly sniffing it, mocking Fury for his past problems with drug abuse. He's getting knocked out in two rounds.

Fury and Wilder will go head-to-head at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena in February, 14 months after their controversial opening bout.

"In rematches, I'm always better than I was the first time because of what I've seen in the ring and with what I've experienced with an opponent", he said. The fight's most memorable moment was Fury's stunning rise from a 12th-round knockdown that had left him flat on his back.

"I'm prepared for more than ever", Wilder said.

"I keep having a dream about two rounds". "Rising up is part of the baptism".

"This is unfinished business that I will finish".

"This time it's going to be different", Fury said, "I want him to meet me at the center of the ring and let's have a slugfest".

Unsurprisingly, the Brit (29-0-1) believes he will be successful in taking Wilder out early.

Fury almost won the first bout with his impressive movement and activity, but Wilder's strength proved to be an equaliser.

"I'm not coming here for a points decision, I've had too many of them - nine of them - I'm coming here for a knockout, I've had 21 of them and from the heart that's what I'm looking to do", Fury added.

In announcing the nominees for best director , actress Issa Rae said with a deadpan expression: "Congratulations to those men". Monday's plethora of nominations "matters" for the industry as it further validates the Netflix business model.


He even changed trainers and hired a nutritionist with a knockout in mind, moving from trainer Ben Davison to Javan Hill, a nephew and disciple of the late Emmanuel Steward.

"Just watch out for the right hand because you're going to sleep in two rounds", said Fury, who has won 20 of his fights by knockout. "That's why I'm able to set guys up and get rid of them in devastating fashion". Thinking it doesn't count.

That's right; Wilder really said "flying elbow kick".

This is to prepare Fury for his fight against Wilder which is scheduled to take place in February.

But Wilder isn't the only one Fury is wanting to get his hands on as the Gypsy King revealed that he's administering some self love seven times a day in the build up to the fight. February 22nd, you won't have to look anywhere for me. "He's got to survive 12 rounds with me".

Wilder also ridiculed Fury's insistence that he should have been declared the victory of the 2018 meeting.

Wilder points to Fury's less-than-impressive effort against Sweden's Otto Wallin in September as a sign of his decline.

"Thinking ain't enough", the 31-year-old Fury said.

"It's not only scary for you". Because they know you're going in again with this monster.
