Superstar trainer Freddie Roach has been part of Tyson Fury’s training camp as Fury (27-0, 19 KO) prepares to face Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KO) in one of 2018’s biggest fights on Saturday night in Las Vegas, live on Showtime pay-per-view.
The trainer spoke with Fight Hub TV on Wednesday, and says that Fury is ready for the fight in every way.
“He’s mentally ready. I think you’ll see the best Tyson Fury ever. We had a great training camp, he’s really happy,” Roach said. “He’s smiling every day. I love when I have a fighter like that, because they’re in a good mood for a reason.”
Roach also predicts that Fury will knock Wilder out.
“The biggest thing is that we can’t go to the ropes,” the trainer said. “Then we might be a sitting target, because the ropes will slow his movement down. So we’re gonna move and use the middle of the ring, and I do believe that we’ll knock him out in the late rounds.”
