Tyson Fury has been backed to live up to his promise and hunt for the knockout against Deontay Wilder.
The former world champion has vowed to stop the American in their rematch on Saturday night.
Fury insists his decision to ditch trainer and confidant Ben Davison for SugarHill Steward is designed to ensure he takes the result of the fight out of the judges’ hands.
And trainer partner and fellow former champion Joseph Parker has revealed he has enjoyed an insight into Fury’s training camp.
“I love how everyone has a different opinion on this fight. It’s going to be amazing and exciting to watch. We all know the reasons why as the first one was so controversial and tight,” he told Vegas Insider.

“You can’t just walk up and bully Wilder, he has proved he has a good chin and one of the biggest punches in the world. Hearing stories from his camp, he’s one talented guy.
“That being said – and I may be wrong – but I believe Fury can pull it off by the approach he said he will do of putting on more pressure and taking it to him. I believe boxing ability beats power.
“Tyson’s been sparring Guido (Vianello) at the beginning of his camp and I was there watching cheering them both on. I’ve seen them do many rounds in the gym in this build up and he is looking good.
“The reason I say he is going to put on more pressure is that I have seen it in camp. Coming forward, back, forward in his movement, he looks like he is implementing what he is saying he is going to do which to come forward, throw more punches, be more aggressive – I think Tyson is going to try to knock Wilder out at some stage of the fight, for sure.”
