Deontay Wilder could only smile regarding Tyson Fury-Anthony Joshua sparring talk”

At the risk of coming across as a sore rival, Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn has suggested the rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder has "probably sold only 60 percent of the tickets".

Recall that the first fight of the WBC heavyweight Deontay Wilder and former owner of the titles WBA, IBF and WBO Tyson fury in December 2018, ended in a draw.

"Hey, get him ready because I'm looking for a great event, looking for the biggest fight in history", Wilder added about his February 22 rematch against Fury.

Wilder vs Fury 2: Where is it?

"It only allows me to continue to keep the claim that I'm the baddest man in the planet".

He said: 'Fury's a amusing guy, he's a skillful fighter, good fighter. "This is definitely the biggest fight in my life right now, as each fight is, and I'm looking forward to it. So that's what I think about him, when I hear his name".

The pair are set to do it all again in one of the biggest fights of all time which will have far-reaching implications on the landscape of the heavyweight division for years to come.

Wilder and Fury's second fight has parallels to "Super Fight II" between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier in 1974, a global event and the second chapter of a potentially legendary sporting rivalry. "You are not thinking about anyone else, you're just thinking about yourself and what's going on".

"He had multiple chances of fighting me. So, if (Joshua) could come and give him some type of pointers, or looks or whatever to make this fight even more exciting, then go ahead and help him out".
