Tyson Fury is “one million per cent” confident that he will defeat Deontay Wilder in Saturday’s heavyweight title fight in Los Angeles.
The undefeated 30-year-old is looking to get his hands on Wilder’s WBC belt three years after he became the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, Ring magazine and lineal heavyweight world champion when defeating long-time unified champion Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf.
Fury lost his belts following a long spell out of boxing, but he is determined to return to the top of the heavyweight division and expects to end the American’s unbeaten record at LA’s Staples Center this weekend.
Fury said: “I’m going to win this fight – one million per cent. There is not a doubt in my mind. No matter what he brings on Saturday night I will overcome him and win and take the WBC title back to the UK.
“You will see the best Tyson Fury. It needs to be the best Tyson Fury to compete at this level and beat such a champion as Deontay Wilder but I’m pretty confident that I have worked hard enough and done everything in my power.
“I’m going to go in there and do my best on Saturday night. I’m very relaxed I don’t get very tense before a fight – it’s just another fight for me. It’s another boxing match. “I have already had 27 professional fights and been a professional for 10 years and I’ve needed to win all of them.
“I don’t really have a weight goal (for this fight) but I’ve worked very hard and I’m as heavy as I have been in most of my fights. I was 257 pounds on the nail this morning.”
