BT Sport have won a massive bidding war against Sky for the United Kingdom television rights to Fury's world heavyweight championship rematch with Wilder.

The second showdown between the two heavyweights comes 18 months after their first bout in Los Angeles, which was scored a controversial draw.

The two are well acquainted with one another at this stage after a memorable press tour before their first fight back in 2018.

Both are promising a knockout victory this time.

"You are going to sleep in two rounds". "As sure as I was this morning putting this suit and shoes on and having to wash and brushing my teeth, that's how sure I'm gonna kick this motherf-er's ass all over that ring".

Asked what he was going to do in the fight Fury, who felt he won the first fight despite two knockdowns said, "What can I say that Deontay Wilder hasn't already bored us to death with for the last 20 minutes?"

"He is getting knocked out in Round 2, 100 percent". "I will do exactly what I said I will do - I'm gonna knock him out. I won't run", he continued.

He told TheBoxingVoice: "I saw it. Look at those b**ches, that's what I said, they're all some b**ches". He's getting knocked out in two rounds. That's what I'm looking for.

Ahead of their rematch, Wilder and Fury have been at verbal loggerhead with the Bronze Bomber boasting of his superior power. "But the magic of it all is the belief". "I'm going for a knockout because thinking I won the fight ain't enough".

"When I see guys double teaming and trying to help each other out like that when the world's trying to see who is the best out of the heavyweight division, it makes me feel good. He's very scared because of what happened the first time".

The consensus from fight fans following the bout was that Fury thoroughly outboxed Wilder, but Wilder's two knockdowns of the British fighter arguably offset that boxing display. Fury, seemingly down and out, managed to rise and beat the count. "That's exactly what I'm going to do".

Deontay Wilder knocks Tyson Fury down during their first heavyweight bout. "That not only affects you but it affects your environment and your family as well". And you know what he's capable of doing. I need to know.

This sequel is the biggest heavyweight bout since Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson squared off in 2002.

Wilder is aiming for a knockout, but he also believes he can win a decision. Usually I'm months and months and months between fights. I didn't come here again to get a bad decision. I like to say I put shape on top of shape. "He has to put it there, but this time.it won't be there".

That being said, one suspects what could be planned for later on could be even more off the hook.

And what will be the result?

Despite admitting he says things he later regrets, Joshua then doubled down on his comments and said: "Sparring Fury is only going to do me good, in my opinion. I'm going to give him a boxing lesson". "Rising up is part of the baptism". I'm going into this fight knowing I can't win a decision. But this time around, it's a different story.

"Deontay knows he was rocked three or four times in the last fight and I didn't have the gas to finish him". The "Gypsy King" vows that Wilder won't be able to detonate and land it this time.
