Saturday’s fight was scheduled for July 24 before Fury’s positive COVID-19 test forced a postponement.
Fury welcomed a baby girl nearly two months ago but she had to be placed into the hospital’s intensive care unit. He said he spent two weeks by her side before she came home.
“I knew if I got that hurdle out of the way, things would be good and I could concentrate on the fight,” 彼は言った.
“Daddy’s just got to do his job. それでおしまい,” 彼は言った.
Wilder, sporting a blood red track suit with the words “Eye for an eye” written on it in Russian, appeared more relaxed, saying he had “nothing to lose and everything to gain” in the fight.
“I’m in a great place, a great state of mind,” Wilder said.
“There’s nothing to prove at all. This right here in redemption, retaliation and retribution.”
Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott said the two have been working to expand the knockout artist’s toolbox while Fury’s trainer Sugar Hill Steward said their focus has been on fine-tuning the “already exceptional” フューリー.
The winner is expected to face Oleksandr Usykget, who holds the other three titles, for a chance to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lenox Lewis 21 数年前.
