42-1-1 as a professional. Wilder’s resume has 41 KOs. This particular stat touts him as superior to any other contender in the division. But the sole loss and the sole draw in his career have come in his two fights against Tyson Fury. Hence, Wilder is yet to overpower ‘The Gypsy King’, like all of his other opponents.

Can Deontay Wilder beat Tyson Fury?

Wilder has all the power in this world to dismantle any person inside the boxing ring. Hence, he knows he has the weapons to beat Tyson Fury. Unfortunately, under technical parameters, he may fall short before Fury. Wilder looked bleak in the rematch in February 2020, where Tyson Fury poleaxed him to claim a seventh-round TKO victory.

Nevertheless, the trilogy collision will offer him a chance to make things right and show that he has grown as a boxer. Thus, Wilder cannot afford to let his chance slip by. He has done a lot in the sport of boxing and a win against Fury will be massive.
