Deontay Wilder & Tyson Fury Press Conference

Deontay Wilder says Anthony Joshua fight is going to happen

When Fury held the WBA and WBO titles, he confronted Wilder in the ring after one of the American's title defences but it has taken almost three years for the fight to be made because of Fury's prolonged absence from the ring, during which he put on eight stone.

"Deontay Wilder doesn't possess anything I'm scared of".

Wilder described the bout as a "mega fight".

Just moments after sitting down Fury said: "I'm savouring nothing, the only thing I'm savouring is smashing Deontay Wilder's teeth in".

Before defeating Seferi, the 30-year-old Fury hadn't boxed since he beat the heavily favored Klitschko by unanimous decision in their 12-rounder in Dusseldorf, Germany.

The WBC champion flew into London for a press conference with Tyson Fury ahead of his next title fight in Los Angeles on December 1, although Joshua remains a long-term target for the American.

"I want to feel it". I'm going to squeeze him like a lemon.

Fury and Wilder went face-to-face at BT Studios to kick-off a media tour to promote their upcoming fight.

"I will prove what I can do to this idiot".

"Hey Joshua, me and Fury have got this thing going on to see who is the biggest and baddest in the world, to see who is champion, one face, one name, something you was too coward to do", Wilder said on ITV's Good Morning Britain. Therefore, Joshua's choice to avoid the American once more has led many to suggest that he is following a set career plan, something Wilder has become increasingly frustrated with. "You'll know what time it is, you come here to see one thing, me knocking somebody out". I'm ready, you're banking on me having two fights in three years. "He knows he's going to get knocked out".

"Nobody forced me to fight Deontay Wilder, I chose to fight him because I believe he is an easy touch". I feel 10 of you. I could've fought another ten bums if I wanted to. I don't get no gratification [from] you being done. Of course I'm going to show all the emotion because enough is enough. "That's the only reason you took this fight, you think I'm done".
