Fury ready for 'war' in heavyweight title rematch with Wilder

Britain's Tyson Fury vowed to deliver a career-best performance in his upcoming heavyweight title rematch with American Deontay Wilder, expecting a 'war' in their February 22 showdown at Las Vegas.

The 12-round battle of unbeaten fighters for Wilder's World Boxing Council crown is a rematch of a thrilling 2018 draw at Los Angeles.

Fury was knocked down twice by Wilder in the first fight but the 31-year-old Englishman plans a more aggressive approach for the rematch.

"Never have I been as ready and focused for one fight as I am for this fight," Fury said in a conference call.

"You're going to see the best Tyson Fury that Tyson Fury can be. I'm match fit. I'm ready. I'm confident. I'm injury free. I'm ready for a war, one round or 12."

Fury, the lineal champion, is 29-0 with one drawn and 20 knockouts while Wilder enters 42-0 with one drawn and 41 knockouts.

"If I beat Deontay Wilder, I'll be the best heavyweight of my era, standing alone," Fury said.
