Tyson Fury feels confident ahead of his third showdown with Deontay Wilder on July 24.
The Gypsy King has yet to lose to the American after two encounters with a split-decision draw and a crushing seventh-round save in his favor so far.
The undisputed heavyweight title fight with Anthony Joshua was signed and ready to go before Wilder took his case to arbitration tribunal and forced Fury to catch up with him.
Now, the boxing world is hoping that Fury and Joshua both win their next outings – with AJ likely fighting Oleksandr Usyk in September – so the fight can be remade.
But Fury doesn’t think much of Joshua.
In fact, he thinks Wilder is a vastly superior fighter who would take out AJ in the first round.
“I’ll deal with these guys later – the most important thing for me is Wilder, the most dangerous heavyweight in the world who would take Joshua out in the first round,” he told Sky Sports.
“I have to get past Wilder and then these guys will get their five minutes of fame. I’m going to give them the biggest beating they’ve ever had in their life.
“Like I told Eddie Hearn, the difference between me and them is that they’re businessmen and I’m a Spartan.”
Fury says he doesn’t care about the money, the belts, or even becoming the undisputed champion. All he cares about is fighting.
“This unchallenged speech means nothing to me. I’m not Eddie Hearn or Anthony Joshua. I fight because this is what I do – this is what I was born to do, ”he said.
“I have nothing personal against Wilder.
“I don’t care about belts or those things that you remember. I care about crushing people.
“If Wilder is in front of me, I’ll give him a good hiding place.” Motivation? This is what I was born for.
“I’m not interested in money, belts or anything that goes with it. I am interested in blood and in combat.
If Fury can beat Wilder in Las Vegas, he’ll have a clear path to the fight he wants, but the huge national showdown with Joshua – with or without all the belts – is still one of boxing’s biggest fights.
