WBC heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury has described his victory over rival Deontay Wilder as the easiest of his career.
The Brit outclassed Wilder in their second meeting back in February and became the first man to inflict defeat on the American who was on a previous run of 41 fight unbeaten run.
Fury said he was disappointed by the outcome of the bout as he dropped Wilder twice before finally stopping in round seven.
“Because I did train for 12 rounds at any pace and put myself through hell and back for 10 weeks in the training camp.
“I prepared for the best fighter on the planet, I prepared for the most vicious puncher on the Earth that there’s ever been and I was quite disappointed because it wasn’t the challenge that I expected.” He said.
Wilder however blamed the epic loss on the custome he wore for the bout, something Fury admitted that it could have one of the reasons Wilder put in an underwhelming performance.
“Although it was a fantastic victory for myself and it was a great fight, it just did seem that Wilder maybe wasn’t himself.
“Maybe all the excuses he made, some of them were true. Maybe his legs were sore from the costume, maybe he did have the flu, maybe he did have a broken arm or a bone in his back or whatever.
“I’m not sure, because that wasn’t the Deontay Wilder that I prepared for. That wasn’t the animal I put myself through all those hours in training for. he added.
Meanwhile, Wilder has triggered the option for the third fight, and its likely to hold late 2020 or early 2021.
