Deontay Wilder isn’t expecting a quick fight but expects to stop Tyson Fury just the same.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Deontay Wilder has built his reputation on having stopped every single opponent he’s ever faced, and he promises that trend will continue when he faces Tyson Fury on Dec. 1 in Los Angeles.

Wilder admits that Fury is a tough opponent, and that’s exactly why he believes it’ll raise both his profile and credentials when he knocks him out. Wilder doesn’t expect it to happen in the early rounds though, but he feels he’ll catch Fury before the full 12 rounds have passed.

“I think mid to late rounds. I don’t think it’s going to be an early night. It’s going to be mid to late rounds and we’re going to see what happens.

“I’m going to knock him out for sure, you’re definitely going to hear about a knockout. That’s what I do and that’s what is going to happen, for sure,” he concluded.

The WBC titleholder also mentioned that fans tune in to his bouts because they want to see a body on the canvas, so to that end he promises to deliver exactly that.
