‘Because we see Wilder as no threat at all once he’s done the camp right.

‘If he’s done everything right to the letter, Wilder ain’t a problem, he’s got his number, beat him twice, beat him like a ragdoll, beat him to a pulp last time.

‘Wilder has got nothing to offer him at all, only that big punch.

‘And believe me, what I’m seeing in the new trainer, we know a lot about him as well, so we’ve got no fear at all.’
