What have they said?
Fury: “Let’s put it this way – he’s not here to fight David Price. I’m a fighting man.
“So we’ll see.
“He’s tough and durable. These are the fights I want.
“I have learned the hard way and that’s the way I want it.
“If the knockout comes, it comes.”
Hammer: “He’s from the Fury family but he’s not Tyson. He’s a young guy.
“I will try to break him.
“I hope he doesn’t only run. I am here to fight.
“I want a fight, not a marathon.”
