SPOTY Betting: Tyson Fury can become the people's champion in Birmingham

Tommy Fury explains how his brother and his "favourite fighter" Tyson Fury has given him the motivation he needs as the light-heavyweight counts down the days to his eagerly anticipated professional debut on December 22nd on the undercard of Josh Warrington's IBF World Featherweight Title defence against Carl Frampton. It also has included some of the depression, suicide and alcohol misuse cases.

"I got over-anxious to knock Tyson Fury out", said the 40-0-1 Wilder, who has won 39 of his fights by KO, usually with his deadly right hand.

"I hold it with pride, respect and honour and it means more to me than any belt ever anyway". Perhaps there has been no such instance in the history so far. The fight ended in a draw. When he had given his statements over camera, he simply said that his comeback was really ionic. They don't want no one else to be equal to them or come past them. We can't get away from this fight.

"If he can conquer all what he has done, then I can conquer anything and it's the same to everybody out there - whatever you want to achieve in life you can achieve it", he said. From initially showing respect to each other when the fight was first announced, the relationship between the pair became increasingly fraught and they had to be separated by security staff during the last press conference. Everyone got so many opinions and I respect everyone's opinion'.

He's seen praying: "In the mighty name of Jesus, give me strength and power tonight, Lord".

"If you did a poll now with the fans for Anthony Joshua's next fight... what do you think would be top of the pops there?" Tyson was robbed of a historical moment, he is the people's champion, we will put it right.

Admittedly his lead-up form to the blockbuster fight was scratchy at best and quite poor if you are being honest.

"So let them continue to fight the second tier fighters". A fight that has earned millions of euro, that the boxer wants to pass.

"I'm just an outsider with an opinion buy it's a situation that is happening all over the world, especially in the United Kingdom as well".

"The heavyweight division in America is down", he added. "It might be a trilogy if it goes as good as the first".

Wilder is WBC champion for a reason though and reminded Fury of that fact by connecting with a shot in the 9th round that floored the Brit.

Joshua is keen to fight both Wilder and Fury. "And I'm ready to do it again".
