FURY insisted he was going to knock out Wilder and his choice of gloves – the puncher’s Everlast MX – proved that. He often pressed down on his knuckles several times during the bout, to ensure his fists carried optimum weight. HEAVYWEIGHT legends Lennox Lewis, Evander Holyfield, Riddick Bowe, Buster Douglas, Gerry Cooney, Michael Spinks and Earnie Shavers were all in attendance. FURY cut a confident figure all week. Not least when he entered the arena on fight night in a white and red flowered shirt, pink jacket, ankle-biting maroon slacks and – the icing on the cake – some snakeskin loafers.
