Deontay Wilder: "I Feel Like I'm At My Very Best Right Now" Ahead Of Tyson Fury Fight

Deontay Wilder is very confident in his abilities and expects to be at his absolute best when he faces Tyson Fury.

Wilder, the current WBC heavyweight champion, recently had a media workout in Los Angeles and spoke on how he is feeling ahead of his title defense against Fury on December 1. Wilder stated that he is at his best in all facets of his game and is very eager to finally get in the ring and fight the former world champion.

"I feel like I'm at my very best right now. Mentally, physically and emotionally I'm ready to go. Everything is perfect. I just want to get in the ring and show action. Tyson Fury doesn't know what he's gotten himself into," Wilder said.

At the moment, Fury brings a resume no other opponent of Wilder has ever brought. Fury has held the WBA, WBO and IBF titles and ended Wladimir Klitschko's longtime dominance over the heavyweight division. Aside from his credentials, Wilder noted that Fury's similar height, as well as his agility and "awkward style" could make for a very entertaining fight.

"Fury has height just like me and he also brings an awkward style like myself. He's rangy, mobile and he believes he's the best in the world. You'll get two giants who are athletic and move around the ring like no one else in this sport," Wilder said.

The two will battle it out for the WBC title in the main event of a Showtime pay-per-view on December 1 from Los Angeles. Fightful will have live coverage of that card, which includes Jarrett Hurd vs. Jason Welborn for the unified WBA/IBF junior middleweight titles and Luis Ortiz in action. Wilder's trainer Jay Deas also spoke about preparing for Fury, which can be read at this link.
