The former WBC champion has had several unique entrances and donned different outfits in the past. This also includes the latest suit he wore in February 2020. The jet-black gear clearly grabbed a lot of eyeballs but didn’t help ‘The Bronze Bomber’ secure a victory against Tyson Fury.

Following the maiden loss of his career via TKO, Wilder was quick to blame the defeat on his overweight costume. However, once again, Wilder isn’t shying away from sporting another enigmatic costume for the career-defining bout in October.

When asked about it, Deontay Wilder said, “Nobody comes out with a better uniform than I. We’re gonna continue with that. We’ll just have to see what I put on. It’s gonna be something special.”

Despite the major setback against Tyson Fury in 2020, Wilder seems extremely confident in his newfound abilities. He has introduced several changes to his approach, replacing Mark Breland with Malik Scott for the role of his trainer. Besides, Wilder has had a long layoff and has remained in the gym for a very long time.

If all these factors can complement his impeccable knockout power, Wilder could stand a considerable chance of winning against Tyson Fury in the trilogy fight. It will be a demanding task to pull off. However, Wilder has shown his prowess once before by knocking down ‘The Gypsy King’ in the 12th round of their original clash.

Both Fury and Wilder have been away from action since facing each other in February 2020. So, their nearing WBC title fight could be a 50-50 matchup in some sense. However, Fury continues to proclaim himself as the favorite, since he was able to stop ‘The Bronze Bomber’ in round seven of their latest encounter.

However, one will hope Fury doesn’t underestimate Deontay Wilder’s power or the fight could end with the British star’s face planted on the canvas. That said, Fury vs Wilder three is undoubtedly an extremely gripping matchup.
