“Once I received my statue in my hometown and witnessed the celebration that took place with me and my family, seeing all the emotions, including grown men sobbing in front of their young children and declaring that he is a real true king, made me feel that my job was not yet finished.
“So, here I am once more, eager to enter the ring once more. I am excited to visit Barclays Center because it is where I have delivered some of my most devastating knockouts and because I think of it as my second home.
“Where are all my Bombzquad members? Put on your battle gear now. And now, baby, let’s get to work. The bomb squad has returned! “I’m a different fighter than Fury, so he [Wilder] is going to prepare differently,” said Robert Helenius.
“He gave Fury a strong battle in their most recent encounter. They were undoubtedly really difficult battles, but I believe he got better with each one.
“I saw him as a completely different fighter, and I am aware that people can evolve throughout a battle. Coming off a loss shouldn’t be a major issue for him because he has a lot of experience. It’s going to be a really, really excellent fight, in my opinion.
