Fury on the other hand knocked Deontay Wilder out in the seventh round of their first bout in the second month of 2020.


The bout was arranged to come with a conditional rematch which Wilder immediately demanded but was canceled amidst Wilder’s injury and coronavirus pandemic which put a ban on sporting activities.


The two boxers, AJ and Gypsy King, will be battling for the pride of who is the biggest and strongest British boxer of the 21st century.


Both fighters engaged in a fight talk just some hours ago with AJ describing himself as “a Spartan who prefers action to mere talks of Fury” while Fury replied by describing AJ as “no talk, no action.”
