British heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury and reigning WBC champion Deontay Wilder took to the stage in Los Angeles on Monday ahead of the pair’s hotly anticipated rematch next month.
"I am prepared more than ever for this fight. I knocked him out the first time. I told Fury two years ago I was going to baptise him, and I did just that," said Wilder.
He then vowed to end the "unfinished business" in the rematch, adding, "I am going to knock him out. Like I told him, 'I am the lion; I am the king of the jungle.' And come February 22, we are going to rip his head off his body."
In response, Fury said, "What's going to happen on that night is I am going to get what I won last time. I am going to get that green belt, I am also going to get the Ring Magazine, and I am also going to keep my lineal championship.
During their fight back in December 2018, the 'Gypsy King' won most of the rounds, but the 'Bronze Bomber' knocked Fury down twice.
Fury claimed that he should have been declared the winner on points while Wilder complained that the referee started the count late when the Mancunian was on the floor in the 12th.
Both fighters left undefeated while Wilder retained the WBC heavyweight title.
The pair will meet again on Saturday, February 22 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
