WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder discussed tactics for his forthcoming clash with Tyson Fury in a radio interview this weekend.

The 32 year-old, who is undefeated in 40 contests with 39 knockouts, was quizzed by Sirius XM Boxing host Gerry Cooney regarding his recent opponent's rope-a-dope attempts against Francesco Pianeta.

Wilder was ringside to witness Fury's ten round domination of the Italian-German, which leads both into a massive undefeated encounter in Las Vegas at the end of this year.

Cooney: You know you had to be licking their chops sitting in a row when he was bobbing and weaving on the ropes back and forth and he fights such a slow pace he tried to slow the pace down. I mean the early that he fights about a 30 mile an hour fight you fight about 110. Were you looking as to how easy this was going to be for you?

Wilder: Well just when he was on he was doing a little rope a dope and stuff. I hope you know he's not going to be doing that. No, don't do that with me because I'm such a smart fighter.

"You know If he had me on the ropes, like that. I know how to get out of that as I do it for like two hours a day and we're there to do that because they know it is boxing, Gerry. We also know in boxing all it takes is one mistake and your goal is over.

"I'm just not the one that you want to waste your energy on time trying to get me in the ring and stuff like that when you know you got a big body. How can I miss the body?

"When he's moving his body like that and we know we don't like to get in the body even though you all know he's very fragile (there). But this is going to be a good fight," he added. (WBN)
