Although the latest fight between them would not have Wilder as the favorite, the American star is optimistic about shaking the odds and beating Tyson Fury.

Wilder is now training with one of his former rivals, Malik Scott, and looks to don a perfect fighting physique. However, Wilder’s impeccable power remains his best tool. Tyson Fury is a technical puncher and has mastered the art of defense. But Wilder has envisioned beating him brutally this time.

“Wooo, it be a train, you say I am a truck, Imm’a run you over with a train baby”, said Deontay Wilder to Tyson Fury, while he was undergoing a gruesome training session.

Meanwhile, a victory over Tyson Fury would bring back the WBC belt on Wilder’s corner. Besides, it would also validate him for a unification fight ahead with the winner of Joshua vs Usyk.

Hence, it’s a must-win situation for Deontay Wilder. However, one more loss against Tyson Fury will be equally fatal for the American knockout artist.

However, no one expected ‘The Bronze Bomber’ to arrive for the trilogy shot at this time. As Tyson Fury was supposed to claim a unification bout against Anthony Joshua, fate took him back to Wilder’s yard.

The former rivals will square off in less than a month for one last time at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. While the entire combat world will have their eyes on Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder, it’s either repeat or redemption inside the ring.

Do you think Deontay Wilder can beat Tyson Fury?
