Deontay Wilder is pretty sure about regaining his lost WBC world title against Tyson Fury on October 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Despite falling short in the rematch against Fury, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ is relying on the new initiatives that have seen him join hands with Malik Scott. And Wilder believes he has all the tools available to dismantle the undefeated Tyson Fury.

He said, “We are gonna be targeting the body, targeting the arms, targeting the neck, we are gonna be targeting the head. There’s no body part that is not gonna be hit. But in the end, my hands will be raised high in the sky. Not because I whopped his a** in 12 rounds. But because I knocked him out.”

Wilder has a professional record of 42-1-1 and has scored 41 KOs in his rise to the top. He is undoubtedly the scariest puncher in the entire heavyweight division.

Besides, Wilder could feed Tyson Fury to the canvas as he did in their original clash in 2018.

And although Fury had gotten back to his feet, the American star can take it as a blueprint to design his plans and can try to land a similar shot in the final leg of the Fury-Wilder rivalry.

Can Deontay Wilder beat Tyson Fury?

As we stand at a mere two weeks’ distance from Fury vs Wilder 3, Wilder has crafted his plan of knocking out Tyson Fury.

Hence, the nearing fight can see sheer violence coming from both sides

Both Fury and Wilder have fought no one since their latest collision in February 2020, in which Fury had his hands raised in glory. So, it’s hard to picture what Wilder will do differently in the third fight. Although the veteran boxer has showcased some prominent head movements in the clips of his recent training.

Hence, a lot will depend on how Deontay Wilder approaches the WBC title fight.
