Tyson Fury ready to 'smash' Deontay Wilder in third fight

Tyson Fury is determined to "smash" Deontay Wilder as the pair fight for a third time.

The Gypsy King had been set to fight Anthony Joshua before a court ruling meant he was ordered to fight the American once more and Fury has declared his intentions of a quick knock-out victory.

He said: "Wilder, this contract is signed.

"You're getting smashed. When I say smashed, I mean smash, smash, smash, bang.

"You're getting knocked out. End of. One round, you're going. I've got your soul, your mojo, everything."

Meanwhile, Fury's former promoter Mick Hennessey suggested that it was not a surprise that the proposed bout between the boxer and Joshua collapsed due to the wily nature of Wilder's support team.

He told Sky Sports: "I wasn't surprised one little bit really, because you've got to realise that Deontay Wilder has got very, very capable and extremely professional people in Shelly Finkel and Al Haymon and although they haven't joined the circus, they've been sitting in the background, doing their due diligence, and not mouthing off.

"They've been quietly working away in the background and when you know how good and how capable these people are - I knew something like this was going to come out, 100 per cent.

"I knew it, so it didn't surprise me in the least."

Hennessey suggested that both Fury and Joshua could have remained active in the fight while Wilder's court threat was in place.

He said: "You can't put deals together while there is an arbitration in place. That's way too presumptuous. It's crazy.

"Maybe during that period, if they were able to fight in other fights, especially Joshua.

"Joshua could have been working this whole time, couldn't he."
