Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury

Both fighters are capable of using their experiences that night; Fury by observing where Szpilka succeeded, and Wilder through how he overcame his approach. I look at him and I don't see a bad man, I see a pretender.

That was Klitschko's first loss in 11 years but Wilder goaded Fury by claiming the Ukrainian had been a passive foe. Wilder vs Fury: Lennox Lewis makes Wladimir Klitschko prediction Wilder vs Fury: Anthony Crolla reveals "worry" for Tyson Fury "I'll tell you what happened".

That victory perhaps remains the finest any active heavyweight has achieved, and vowing to stop America's champion, Fury said: "It's three years since I went to Dusseldorf and kicked Klitschko's a*** all over the place".

In a video which has recently surfaced, the Gyspy King and his team took to the streets of LA to question random people by simply asking - 'Do you know who Deontay Wilder is?'.

While Deontay Wilder credits his "Bronze Bomber" nickname as an homage to fellow Alabama born boxer, the "Brown Bomber" Joe Louis, Tyson Fury feels there's another reason.

Ben Gallop, Head of BBC Radio and Digital Sport, said: "This clash between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder promises to be one of the most exciting boxing moments of the year".

"I can't wait", he said. "He feels pressured, you can see the pressure he is under out there". "Now it's my time".

In response, Wilder dismissed Fury as having had "his time" when he stunned Klitschko, who he also insisted had "beaten himself". If Klitschko would have thrown more punches the fight would have been different - we all know this. I was ready two weeks ago.

The champ simply could not get near Fury as he ducked and weaved his way around the ring, switching from Orthodox to Southpaw on a frequent basis.
