"I always support him, because he was named after me. So I'm a little biased. It does not matter how strong you are missing a punch - it's hard to beat the person who never gives up," Iron Mike said in an interview to BT Sport. "But this does not mean that I do not like Wilder. He is also a great guy."

The closer the clash between the two giants, the more bets are made on Deontay Wilder's victory . Many bookmakers are already offering odds on "Bronze Bomber" lower than for Fury.
