My first job was working for my dad. He was a used-car dealer, and I used to wash the cars down, clean them out, and so on. I would do stuff for him pretty much every day. It was quite a good job, to be honest.

Everything I've set out to do, I've achieved, and all the praise goes to God.

I never started in boxing to be a British champion or a world champion. There are loads of world champions in Britain, and if you mention them to someone out there on the street, nobody knows who they are.

I've said a lot of stuff in the past, but not with any intentions to hurt anybody. It's all a bit tongue-in-cheek.

Sometimes emotions can win fights. Sometimes letting your feelings out in a fight can win you the fight. When it means the world to you, it's not just a sports contest - a boxing match for money or belts.

I can fight, but that's the only thing I can do. When it comes to anything other than fighting or talking, I'm not very good.

I just need to count the rounds and count me money afterwards.

Goliath was a champion, a monster who had never been beaten, and then this young guy, David, came forward, a child who believed in God and did it.

They are the three venues I wanted to box in - I wasn't really interested in Las Vegas and all of them places. The three I always said was Croke Park, United, and Madison Square Garden.

Boxing is a dying sport, really. Years ago, the world heavyweight champion could be said to have reached the highest pinnacle of sport. Even in this country, boxers were heroes. Think of Henry Cooper and Frank Bruno.

I'm not homophobic, I'm not racist. I'm not against any people. All I have for people is love.

Listen, I believe I should be winning Sport Personality of the Year because if it's about sporting achievements and it's about personality, then I'm a winner hands down.

Lennox Lewis is a hater of Tyson Fury.

I don't need David Haye and his antics to earn money.

What do I see when I look in the mirror? One handsome man. No, I see the same person I have seen for the last 27 years: the person I believed I could be when I was a child, the person I have inspired and dreamed to be all my life, and that's the person I have seen, from being that big to as big as the roof - the same guy.

I've not been paid millions of pounds for any fights. I've not made any money out of boxing.

I'm a fighting man, a fighting man with generations of fighting men before me in my family. That's all we do: we fight.

What personality does it take to drive a car around a track 100 times or hit a ball back and forth. That's not very personality is it?

I'm a gypsy: no education, no schooling, nothing. I don't care what people think of me. I don't care about being a hero, a role model, a champion.

I believe all woman look good in dresses; is that a crime?

I do like going to the movies, but I like eating tons of sweets and ice cream, so I can't go to the movies anymore.

Although there's been a fighter before me called Mike Tyson, I'm my own Tyson. I'm Tyson Fury. I ain't trying to be anybody else.

My brother Shane and I used to spar with each other in the kitchen. We didn't have gloves, so we wrapped tea towels around our hands.

I will become the greatest, because all travellers have to be able to adapt. That quality, adaptability, is essential to that way of life. Not many boxers have it but I can adapt before a fight to the opponent, during the fight if necessary.

People can say what they want about me. But I've got a big heart and will keep going.

When my little son, Prince, had health issues as a baby, we were told that he had a 20 percent chance of survival.

I've got an outspoken personality, which gets people thinking, and my style of fighting is aggressive. Everything's on the line all the time. In my fights, there's drama.

Let's make this clear: I do not hate anybody.

At the end of the day, we're all brothers and sisters in God. What people do is none of my business.

Whether someone like Klitschko wins, loses, draws, or gets knocked out in five seconds, he is still a big name.

I'm looking forward to fighting Chisora, getting him out of the way, and then fighting Klitschko for all the belts, but I don't think Wladimir is going to take the fight.

Foolish people follow the system, get caught up in media news, what the government wants you to believe and all the higher powers want you to believe, and go down the same path as all the sheep in the cattle market.

Although I think of myself as the greatest heavyweight, I do respect the legends of the past for what they did. But they are not my heroes.

I've got a tidy chin and a decent punch. And, for people who think they can fight and are champions, I'll make it extremely hard.

I think I need a psychiatrist because I do believe I am mentally disturbed in some way.

All my people are from Ireland. I was born in Manchester, but I am Irish.

Whatever is conventional, I am the opposite. So if you want to walk in a straight line, I am going to walk in zigzags. If you want to throw a 1-2, I'll throw a 2-1.

I have not met a man as tall as me who is as quick as me, ever.

How many people have different opinions in this world? Every different person has a different opinion of what that bottle really is or what colour it is. If I say that bottle is clear, there will be someone out there telling me that bottle is green or blue.

There's never been someone like me in history - a fighter like me only comes along every 1,000 years.

My belief is that my wife should be at home looking after my kids and cooking and cleaning. She's a very privileged woman to have a husband like me. Not everyone's in her position, but the ones who are are very lucky. That's my opinion.

I'm a unique fighter - one of a kind.

Any man who puts a pair of gloves on deserves respect because lots wouldn't dream of it. To get in there and go one-on-one, you need your hand shaking afterwards. Many men wouldn't get involved.

My opinion is that I follow what the Lord says. Or I try to. Others are following what they want to do, basically. They are living for their self. I am living for God.

I set out in the beginning to be the heavyweight champion of the world. From a very young age, I was going to be the heavyweight champion of the world. Nothing else was a problem to me. That's what I'll finish doing.

Good will always prevail over evil. I see that in me versus Klitschko.

I'm a little bit backward. I didn't really go to school.

I'm really excited about my future plans, as I'm doing things differently and currently training like a Trojan in pursuit of becoming heavyweight champion of the world.

Wilder is not a big draw in the U.S. He maybe sells 5,000 to 10,000 tickets when he's fighting in his own town for the heavyweight champion.
