Deontay Wilder has knocked out everyone he’s faced as a professional, running up a record of 40-0 (39 KO) along the way, and capturing the WBC heavyweight title.

But his biggest fight is coming on December 1, when he faces Tyson Fury (27-0, 19 KO) on Showtime pay-per-view in Los Angeles.

Wilder has been adamant that he’ll knock Fury out, and he’s staying with that prediction.

“I can’t wait to fight Tyson Fury in the biggest fight in the heavyweight division and all of boxing,” said Wilder. “I have tremendous respect for Fury for agreeing to leave England and come to the U.S. to challenge me. I’m the WBC champion, he’s the lineal champion, and the winner of this fight will show the world who is ‘The Man’ in the heavyweight division. As much as I respect Fury, I fear no man and fully intend to knock him out like every man that I’ve ever faced in the ring.”
