Australian-based boxing journalist Anthony Cocks has been covering the sport for over 15 years for various print and online publications. He refuses to believe that Roberto Duran ever lost to Tommy Hearns and says that Jeff Fenech would destroy Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali on the same night.

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder 40-0 (39) has told lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury 27-0 (19) that now is his time ahead of their December 1 clash at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The unbeaten American knockout artist made the comments on BT Sport’s ‘Face Off’ programme.

“Your time may come but this is not your time,” said the 32-year-old ‘Bronze Bomber’. “You may think it is your time, you may feel like it is your time, but it is not your time Tyson. This is my time. And it will forever be my time until I retire.

“I’m sorry to tell you that because I speak it, believe it, receive it, speak it, believe it, receive it, speak it, believe it, receive it.”

The 30-year-old self-styled ‘Gypsy King’ scoffed at the comments.

“Let me tell you all that stuff you just said, you’re already beat,” replied Fury. “Anyone who has to have an alter ego and not be themselves and try and get in someone’s mind like that. You can’t beat me. I’m not talking to Deontay WIlder, let me talk to the other person, the Bronze Bomber.

“You’re looking at a man who stands in the light! I can’t be beat by any alter egos. I can’t be beat. I’ve already beaten you. I’ve beaten you once in Dusseldorf. I’ll beat you again in America. Can’t be done. I can’t be beat.”

Wilder and Fury completed a three city promotional tour last week to hype the fight, taking in London, New York and Los Angeles.

In his last bout Wilder stopped quality Cuban banger Luis Ortiz 29-1 (25) in 10 rounds in a competitive fight in March.

Fury is two fights into his comeback after spending 30 months on the sidelines dealing with drug and mental health issues.

Wilder is a firm favourite to defeat Fury in what will be the eighth defence of his WBC world title.
