Wilder Labels Fury Boxer With ‘Pillow Fists’; Briton Targets knockout Win in Rematch
Trash talks have snowballed as the long awaited February 22 rematch between WBC title holder Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury beckons.
The American and British heavyweight boxers spoke during a press conference in Los Angeles on Saturday and it was trash talk galore, with each boasting to step up from the draw result in their first encounter and win it outrightly in Las Vegas on February 22.
Bronze Bomber, Wilder, dismisses Gypsy King, Fury, a pugilist with “pillow fists” but the Briton claims he has the unrivaled ‘big heart and determination’ to knock the American out in the second round.
Wilder said of Fury: “I don’t think he has the power to knock me out, we have not seen that. We have seen a couple of knockouts, but nothing as regular as mine.
“Tyson is a skilful fighter, but you cannot have it all. I said he had pillow fists at the hands.”
Fury who will be aiming at bagging his 221st knockout in 31 fights in the rematch responded sharply.
“I will knock him [Wilder] out in two rounds, in the first I tried to outbox him but I did not win,” he said.
“I am happy he doesn’t think I am a big puncher, the stats don’t lie, he is a far bigger one-hit puncher than me. But I don’t believe anyone can match me for heart and determination.
“Only one of us can win and I am not afraid to go mano-e-mano with the biggest puncher in history.”
