Previewing Wilder-Fury II with Boxing Insider Mike Coppinger
Thursday morning, just two days away from the Heavyweight World Championship rematch between Deontay "Bronze Bomber" Wilder and Tyson Fury. Boxing Insider, co-host of "The Pug and Copp Boxing Show", Mike Coppinger joined Host of "Southern Fried Sports" Travis Reier to preview the rematch at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
"They are two outlandish characters, two great heavyweights" Coppinger told Reier about Wilder and Fury's pre-fight antics. "They are ultra-competitive guys, there's been so much between the two. They are almost like a old married couple at this point the way they were fighting."

"I don't Tyson Fury has any margin for error," Coppinger told Reier. "I think he has to maintain focus for all Thirty-six minutes. We've seen anytime someone takes their eyes of Deontay Wilder, it's kind of like Wilder lulls people to sleep."
"Doesn't throw many punches," Coppinger continued. "He's rather economical, and then all of the sudden bam! The left hand blinds you, the right hand follows and your out."
The rematch is set for Saturday, February 22nd at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. You can listen to Coppinger's full preview of the Heavyweight World Championship rematch in the video above.
