Tyson Fury says ‘real champion will be crowned’ in rematch with Deontay Wilder, explains trainer switch

first_img“I proved myself the first time and I’m ready to do it again,” the WBC champion said. “It was a very controversial fight. I promise my fans that there won’t be any controversy with this one. I’m going to finish it.”I’m happy and I’m excited that the rematch is finally happening. I want to give the fans what they want to see. I’ve been doing it with my last three outings — Fury, Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz. They’ve been spectacular events — from my ring walks where I gather all the energy of the people, to my uniforms that I wear to help spread that energy. “Then I give them what they all come for — the knockouts, and my knockouts have been amazing.” “There’s no more ducking and diving,” Fury told reporters. “The date has been set, and the ‘Bomb Squad’ is about to be securely detonated and the real champion crowned as the world watches on for the most anticipated fight in years.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a year”This is unfinished business for me, but come Feb. 22, this dosser will finally get what’s coming to him, and I can’t wait!”Fury also explained his surprising decision to split with longtime trainer Ben Davison in the build-up to the fight, saying their work had gone “stale.” SugarHill Steward will instead train Fury.”We’re going to go back to basics,” Fury said on ESPN’s “College GameDay.””I trained with SugarHill Steward back in 2010, we got on like a house on fire.”I was going a little bit stale, repetitive, doing the same things day in, day out for years. I needed a change.”@ringmagazineNumber 1 – @Tyson_FuryNumber 2 – @BronzeBomberWhen number one and number two in the ratings fight, the Ring Magazine belt is on the line #WilderFury2 pic.twitter.com/T6gDHb2R6c— Frank Warren (@frankwarren_tv) December 27, 2019Wilder insists it is he who will end any doubt over who is the better fighter.
