Tyson Fury has all the reasons to tout himself superior to Deontay Wilder, especially after a lopsided win in their rematch in February 2020. However, that doesn’t hamper the confidence in Deontay Wilder’s team, who are aiming for retribution in the third meeting in October. The American knockout artist, who seems prepared, has constantly claimed that he will poleaxe Fury this time.
