The wait is over as we are weeks away from one of the biggest heavyweight rematch in recent times. The two Goliaths of heavyweight boxing, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will square off once again to finish the unfinished business.
The first encounter was one of the most epic battles the fans have seen inside the boxing ring. It truly marked the return of the Gypsy King against an opponent who is notorious for knocking guys out in devastating fashion. Fury outclassed Wilder and according to many fans won the fight.
On the other hand, Wilder knocked down Fury multiple times and as per some fans, Fury did not get up before the allowed 10 seconds. Those arguments are all in the past as we look forward to the rematch to find out who is indeed the better boxer of the two.
There have been a few narratives going into the rematch. The boxing fans are split between Fury and Wilder, trying to predict the outcome of the rematch. Recently, Anthony Joshua gave his verdict on the rematch and talked about how Fury can overcome Wilder in the rematch.
Anthony Joshua Predicts Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 2
Anthony Joshua believes Tyson Fury is going to get his hands raised in the rematch. Although he respects the power that Wilder brings to the table he thinks Fury with superior boxing skills can get the job done against Wilder.
“I believe that Fury will win because, Wilder has shown you can’t blink for a second with him because it just takes one punch, against Ortiz. But it shows that a good boxer, who’s young and fresh and can follow out a game plan can be victorious seven to ‘x’ amount of rounds.”
Wilder is not the best boxer in the world when it comes to skills and he is well aware of that. But as he says he only needs a few seconds to end the fight and he does not have to be perfect for 12 rounds. However, Joshua believes Fury is evasive and smart enough to inflict enough damage to win the fight while evading the power punch of Wilder. Joshua explained:
“Boxing is about hitting and not getting hit and Ortiz got hit with a big punch but Fury’s quite evasive, Fury’s a lot bigger, Fury boxes back and flicks out his jab. So he is quite difficult to hit. Fury fought Wilder the first time after a long lay off. I think Fury’s taken some relatively soft touch fights, got his confidence back and going into the new year as a new man, new team, new mindset. He’s over his mental health issues. So he must feel something in him that is new and he wants to be the new heavyweight champion of the world. So I think Fury has a good chance to beat Wilder providing he follows his game plan through the 12 rounds.”
Well, the heavyweight champion has picked his bet for the Fury vs Wilder rematch. Who do you think gets the job done?
