Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is talking tough ahead of his third fight against Tyson Fury.
The 34-year-old Ameican boxer was handed his first-ever defeat about two months ago at the MGM Grand Arena.
Wilder was made to kiss the canvass in the seventh round of their bout- thereby forcing him to relinquish his title.
Not only was he beaten, but he also landed in the hospital as he bled through his ears.

The Bronze Bomber has now vowed to hang his gloves if he fails to triumph over the British opposition in a fight which is expected to be staged sometime this year.
According to SunSport, the American claims he is sending off moles from his team as he believes they contributed to his emphatic defeat to the Gypsy King.
The third meeting between the two boxers was initially scheduled for July 25, however, the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic forced the date to be shifted.
Wilder stressed the importance of bouncing back during an interview with PBC Podcast - adding that he needed to deal with "snakes" around him who were "jealous" of how his career had progressed.
The former WBC champions said: "This is the last final straw as I see it. I'm taking everything in that happened, everything that happened towards me.
"I'm cutting my grass, I'm getting rid of a lot of snakes in the grass. "This time has allowed me to look back, dig in the weed and see what was really going on.
"You can have a lot of great people around you, but certain jealousy of people you can't control.

"Everybody wants certain things, everybody wants what you have but they don't want to work as hard as you, to sacrifice as much as you.
"People get envious of the things they can't have, I had to weed out, change up certain things."
Wilder's corner threw in the towel when the beating was getting unbearable but the American said he could sack his coach for pulling such stunt.
This means that the Bronze Bomber is opened to bringing one or two new faces to join his team before his next fight.
