Boxing heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has put the boot into rival Deontay Wilder, saying he had expected a much bigger challenge in their rematch.

Fury dropped Wilder twice and stopped him in the seventh round of their February sequel in Las Vegas when the American's corner threw the towel in.

The one-sided victory saw Fury capture Wilder’s WBC belt to become a two-time heavyweight champion.

It was a far cry from their first encounter in December 2018, when Fury was knocked down twice as the pair fought to a controversial split draw at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The two rivals are due to meet again this year after Wilder exercised an immediate rematch clause, but it has been postponed from July 18 to October 18 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
