Most experts, pundits, and armchair fanatics believe that Tyson Fury did enough to win his WBC title fight with Deontay Wilder back in December 2018.

Many believe that Fury beat Wilder on the scoreboard.

"I think Fury wins", he said.

To kick things off this Friday evening, February 14th at 9PM on ESPN, "Wilder vs. Fury 2: The Roundtable" will premier with replays all week long, featuring Joe Tessitore, Tim Bradley, Andre Ward and Max Kellerman, analyzing every important variable and factor involved within the highly touted match-up.

"Fury can hit a little. If you underestimate someone, he makes it unsafe because you don't respect him until they hit you". Wilder is not the best fighter, but he has the right hand. "If you can avoid that, you have the beating of him".

"Of course I want Fury to win because he's a Brit", Hearn continued.

The "Bronze Bomber" claimed Joshua was a coward, and criticised his win over Andy Ruiz Jr.

"Good luck to Fury - it would be great to have two heavyweight champions here in England". He knows what the truth was, and I'm looking forward to it. "I want to keep him for several years".

"One day I woke up and thought today's the day I end it all", he said.

Asked about his rivals' rematch, Joshua said: "Wilder coming through is better because [a fight with me] is what people have been eagerly anticipating".

"This is a guy who, for years and years, has failed to fight Anthony Joshua".

On Saturday afternoon, February 22nd, at 1 PM ET, ABC will broadcast a live one-hour preview for "Wilder vs Fury 2" to entice mainstream and casual sports fans who are now "on the bubble" about purchasing the highly anticipated event.

"Once it's open and blood is in his face, I might get some on me as well".

"It's a quick conversation between me, Bob Arum and MTK, and it gets done instantly".

He accused his new client of "not stepping on the gas" in the first fight, and has suggested that Fury will not be making the same mistake twice.

Although there will be different announcers and full live coverage for all preliminary bouts, the official start time of the PPV fight card will indeed begin at 9PM ET, and can be purchased for $79.95 through the ESPN + and FOX Sports apps.

"The curve is in terms of; those guys are preparing for their (third fight) and we have an opportunity in place that we can present to the victor to get them away from (a third fight)", Hearn explained. Who has he fought since then?

Wilder, however, is unimpressed by the changes in Fury's corner.
