Deontay Wilder reckons he has ‘ended Tyson Fury career’ after watching the British fighter labour to a victory over Otto Wallin.
Tyson Fury survived a major scare to beat Otto Wallin in a thrilling Las Vegas encounter as a rematch with Deontay Wilder draws closer.
“Anyone who saw this fight will understand and recognise that he’s [Fury] not the same fighter, this is what I do to them – I end careers,” Wilder told Barbershop Conversations.
“I’m the baddest man on planet, he’s not the same fighter at all, I gave him a concussion. He’s done and I can’t wait. I cannot wait, oh my god, he didn’t even have the best of me, we had the best of Fury. I keep telling Fury himself, if you really look deep at his whole situation, the mental health, that’s the story they sold, and still selling, that’s the only thing that he can hold on to tight and claim to, there’s nothing else.
“I can’t wait for this fight because the rematch is going to be so much different because I’ve been in there before for one and for two I’m [going] to be at my best, at my most healthiest. Otto Wallin put up a good fight. I was most impressed with Wallin when he cut Fury open.
“When you cut a guy open with that deep of a cut, two inches long, or longer, he even at one time tried to grab the boy [Fury] eye and tried to pull it out, I thought ‘s***’, there you go, that’s what you got to do, put them in a headlock, put the sweat up in the eye.”
