Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will close off their rivalry by locking horns for one last time. Following two gruesome encounters in the past, they both have held the WBC heavyweight championship. While unified champion Anthony Joshua had his right to influence the journey, Wilder’s subtle move has temporarily shattered a possible unification bout between ‘AJ’ and Fury.

The matchup is still relevant, but not before Wilder gets his shot at the WBC world title. The former titleholder, who won his arbitrary case against Tyson Fury, will reportedly get his trilogy on July 24 at the Allegiant Stadium.

Fury vs Wilder 3 is imminent and will determine the best possible contender for Anthony Joshua. That said, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ now has a chance to avenge the sole loss of his pro career. He has made a few changes in his training camp, replacing Mark Breland with Malik Scott as head trainer.

Orthodox Boxing for Deontay Wilder

Unlike the first two fights, Wilder can appear composed and calm this time. Other than aiming for a KO, he can box and jab in an orthodox fashion to keep himself from being mauled. If he sticks to the basics and keeps thwarting Tyson Fury’s best shots, he may reclaim the heavyweight gold. Meanwhile, he cannot depend on that one factor throughout the battle. Hence, he will look to back his strength.

Deontay Wilder and the right hook

Wilder has already showcased his knockout ability against Tyson Fury in their first fight. The American successfully knocked down Fury with a thunderous right hook. It was a punch that could have ended the fight. Hence, he might repeat the same, and this time Tyson Fury may not have the chance to get back up.

So, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ needs to time the perfect punch. While he can not afford to rush after it, Deontay Wilder will have to constantly be on his toes, in search of that one opening to land one shot.

Compilation and hits

Tyson Fury is a quick puncher and is thoroughly unorthodox with his antics. So, Deontay Wilder will have to not get hit and add a few more combinations in the later rounds to advance himself in the score. Apart from headshots, Wider can also aim for Fury’s body to gain legitimate momentum.
