Wilder lost to Tyson Fury in February 2020. This was his first and the most dreadful loss in his extensive boxing career. Prior to that, Wilder had a stellar run in the game and he placed himself as one of the most terrifying fighting prospects.

But the Brit gave a major blow to the Alabama native and consequently dethroned him from his spot. Ever since then, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ has asked for only one bout, that is, a trilogy with ‘The Gypsy King’. And for that, he’s immersed himself in some rigorous training sessions.

This fight is vital for both the fighters, but for Wilder, this contest plays a prime role in escalating his boxing run. This bout is more than the belts for him this time and it’ll unquestionably help him solidify his legacy.
