Joseph Parker: Tyson Fury does not want Deontay Wilder rematch going 12 rounds

Joseph Parker says Tyson Fury 'wants to make a statement' against Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury is adamant that he will dethrone Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas by way of knockout.

The Gypsy King wants to become the first man to stop the Bronze Bomber following their controversial draw back in December 2018.

So what has Fury done to help change his approach to the fight? Joseph Parker says he's seen the Englishman in his camp and says he a more aggressive plan is being put in place.

"If he [Fury] wants to make a statement, he's going to have to put on more pressure and throw more punches," Parker told GIVEMESPORT in Las Vegas.

"Hopefully he can execute this plan he's put in place for this fight."

One key element behind Fury's thinking surely has to be the evidence of Wilder's power not diminishing in the latter rounds of the fight.

Last time out, the American delivered a sickening power shot in the 12th and final round, which Fury miraculously recovered from.

Parker shared the opinion that Fury will not want to risk history repeating itself twice on Saturday.

"You're always going to be wary of Wilder, because of the power that he possesses," Parker he added.

"He can knock anyone out in any round, so I guess he [Fury] is a bit wary of that and plus, if it goes 12 rounds again, he knows he can out box him, but is he going to get the decision?"

Three American judges will be scoring the fight on Saturday and there will be the concern that they will sway towards their countryman.

But it would be rude to ignore Wilder's underrated boxing skills and Parker is adamant that the Bronze Bomber should be renowned for more than just his heavy hands.

"The way he [Wilder] controlled Luis Ortiz, even though he wasn't winning the first six or seven rounds, he believed in himself that much to throw the right hand and knock him out," Parker said.

"He stalks his prey and controls the distance, he's a great fighter."

It's almost impossible to predict which way this one is going!
