Deontay Wilder doesn’t see himself losing to Tyson Fury one more time, when they meet inside the ring on October 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for the WBC heavyweight world title. Coming from a horrific TKO loss against the Brit star, Wilder has had a long hiatus and has apparently infused several new techniques in his recent camp. He has also roped in Malik Scott.

Deontay Wilder claimed to have benefited from the postponement of the fight. In a chat with 78 Sports TV, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ talked about several things, including how the official postponement has turned him invincible at this stage.

“The longer they give me time, the better, the better here I become. The only thing about it you know they had their greatest chance back in July. At this point in the night, it is no stopping me. I am on a mission and as I have been saying, my mind as well as my team mind. All our minds are violent,” said Deontay Wilder.
