‘I don’t want another beatdown,’ Tyson Fury taunts Deontay Wilder before of their trilogy battle.
The trilogy bout between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will take place in Las Vegas on Saturday, October 9.
Tyson Fury has teased Deontay Wilder ahead of their trilogy rematch on Saturday night in Las Vegas. Fury, 33, bounced back from a contentious draw with Wilder with a convincing seventh-round knockout in their rematch, and now says he believes the ‘Bronze Bomber’ can give him a tougher battle the third time around.
Fury, on the other hand, has cautioned the American that he’s in better shape today than he was before either of their previous fights.
“Deontay will face a Tyson Fury who is 30 to 40 percent better than the Tyson Fury who thrashed him in the previous bout. Fury told MailOnline, “I haven’t wasted our 20 months out of the ring.”
“I’ve been working nonstop on my boxing, footwork, and jab. Everything. I’ve been an elite fighter for years, but the sabbatical has allowed me to advance to an even greater level.
“I’m sure Deontay has been working hard as well.” He’s acquired a new trainer, and he’s determined to improve. But, while he’ll have the strongest punch in the world, I don’t think he’ll be able to make much of a difference in his basic boxing. I’m hoping he’ll get better. We don’t need another beating, so I’m hoping he can offer me a bigger challenge.” The battle was originally scheduled for September, but it was postponed after Fury tested positive for Covid-19. However, the ‘Gypsy King’ is now fully healed and, despite indicating that he doesn’t want an easy night, predicted another convincing victory.
“I enjoy boxing, and we all want to see exciting fights.” In any case, if we’ve both progressed, the result should be the same. Me dismantling him and shattering him to bits once more. “Only faster.” Fury’s animosity for Wilder, 34, grew this year after Wilder’s camp launched legal action to prevent the British fighter from arranging a long-awaited match with Anthony Joshua.
Fury’s team was outraged when a subsequent court verdict sided with Wilder’s contention that Fury was legally obligated to finish the pair’s trilogy before fighting another opponent.
After the BBBoC raised pre-fight medical concerns, the fight between Chris Eubank Jr and Anatoli Muratov was canceled.
