The world has seen the two magnetic contests between these two and a trilogy too was on the brink of taking place. However, as Tyson Fury and his team tested positive for COVID-19, fans will have to wait for a while to see these two fight each other again.

Recently, Frank Warren interacted with Seconds Out and analyzed both Fury’s and Wilder’s chances against each other.

I just don’t see what we can do. But having said that Tyson can’t afford to be complacent and in some ways, Tyson’s got everything to lose in this. He’s got nothing to gain. And then the other side of it is that, if Wilder beats this where gets beat by Tyson, where does he go from there so his whole career is on the line,” said Warren.

Wilder asked for this trilogy immediately after his loss to Fury in February 2020. Since then, he hasn’t made an appearance in the squared circle, thus staying firm on booking his trilogy with ‘The Gypsy King’.

Now that the contest between these two is off from its July 24th date, it seems Wilder will have to sustain his hunger for a considerable period.

Can Deontay Wilder turn things around in his trilogy against Tyson Fury?

More than anyone else, Wilder is eager to give his best in the biggest and perhaps the most important fight of his boxing career. In his fresh training videos, it appears as if ‘The Bronze Bomber’ has worked extensively on his movements and defense.

That said, he’s extremely ready to showcase his new and improved skill sets to vanquish Tyson Fury. More than the belts, this fight will see Wilder box to maintain his aura and legacy. Hence, it’ll be exciting to see how he presents himself in this fight.
