There’s no way Deontay Wilder seems to be intimidating Tyson Fury for the trilogy fight, especially after being demolished in the rematch in 2020. Although Wilder has infused some prominent changes in his preparations, Fury is still confident about overpowering the American KO-artist on October 9.

‘The Gypsy King’ stopped Wilder in the seventh round of the rematch via TKO, handing ‘The Bronze Bomber’ his maiden and sole loss of his professional career. While Wilder has vowed to avenge it, Fury doesn’t see it happening. In a chat with Lockdown, the Brit boxer shared his views on Wilder as a rival.

While he hailed Wilder’s knockout prowess, Tyson Fury said, “I am going to run across the ring and I am going to knock the f*** out of Deontay Wilder. I am going to plaster him, I will be like a plasterer on a night plastering walls, I am going to splatter him in the ring. Getting knocked out for sure.”

However, Deontay Wilder and his trainer, Malik Scott, have claimed that they have crafted a plan for Tyson Fury’s loss. Following a year-long hiatus from action, Wilder, in his training videos, looks sharp and shredded. Furthermore, he seems to have worked on his speed and head movement. While he already had the vicious power on board, these new techniques can turn Wilder even more treacherous.
