The former WBC heavyweight hampion Wilder (42-1, 41 KOs) says Fury “cheated” during their rematch last year, and beause of that, he’s going to have to anwer to him next monty.
Although Wilder isn’t guaranteeing a knockout, that’s what he’ll be looking to get when he faces the ‘Gypsy King’ in the main event on pay-per-view on July 24th.
Wilder wants to avenge his loss and prove his doubters wrong at the same time. He takes responsibility for his defeat, even though he feels he was cheated.
Wilder wants revenge
“Revenge, solid revenge,” said Wilder to ESPN on his reasons for wanting to fight Fury again. “What I did for him and what he didn’t do for me. Playing games, and he even cheated. My mind is very violent right now, and revenge is all I see.
“I’m looking to be victorious and show the world greatness and the best version of Deontay Wilder. I’m on a vision. I only have to be perfect for two seconds, whereas they have to be perfect for 12 rounds. I’ve gotten a little meaner, so my mindset has definitely changed.
“When I speak, people tune in beause they want to hear wheat I say,” said Wilder. “Even if they don’t like what I’m going to say, they want to hear what I say.
“I can’t give away too much. I want it to be a surprise to everyone that is tuning in. I want the to take my word for it, but take my actions seriously,” said Wilder.
Fury had been watch on on July 24th becaue Deontay is in the zone, thanks to what went down in his second fight with Tyson. Wilder is seeing read now, and the only thig that can calm him down is Fury’s pelt at his feet.

“All of it, I can’t blame no one else,” said Wilder when asked how much responsibility does he take for his loss to Fury. “I can tell you the facts, and when I display the facts, it’s up to each indiviual to accept what I’ve told them.
“I have no reason to lie about nothing I said. It happened to me, so I take full overnship of it. July the 24th, it’s my time.
“How is it going to end? When people come and see a Deontay Wilder fight, they know one thing for sure that he’s going to give his all and somebody is going to get knocked out,” said Deontay.
Wilder wants the knocout of Fury badly to pay him back for what went down last year. We’ve never seen Wilder so focused as he is now, and it could be trouble for Fury on July 24th.
Deontay isn’t blaming anybody for his loss to Fury. He takes full responsbility for the defeat. If Wilder had addressed the fouling from Fury early on in the contest, he may neverhave been hurt.
But then again, it may not have mattered. Fury looked like his mind was set on roughing Wilder up,and the rules were secondary to his goal.
