He is clearly boasting his signature confidence before Wilder, who is seeking revenge. Coming from the sole loss of his career, Wilder has added more weapons in his arsenal that already had the treacherous power. But all of it isn’t putting any pressure on Fury.

In a clip of his training for the Fury vs Wilder 3 docu-series, ‘The Gypsy King’ opened up on his overlook to the trilogy fight, while chatting with a teammate. He said, “I just said to Joe if I don’t knock Wilder out in the first five rounds, I consider it as a loss.”

Fury appeared flawless in his latest win against Wilder from February 2020. After poleaxing ‘The Bronze Bomber’ from every angle, he forced Wider’s cornermen to throw in the towel in seventh. The loss ended Wilder’s dominance, which had seen him set a record of 42 wins and 1 draw, including 41 knockout wins.

It also appeared to hurt Wilder’s ego, as he refused to accept the defeat. After cursing his trainer, Mark Breland, Wilder justified the loss with his overweight costume. Now, he will look to leave no stone unturned, as he has the ability to avenge himself within the ropes.

Thus, the trilogy fight can differ a lot from the first two collisions. Relying on Wilder’s vicious power, it will be unfair to write him away. However, Tyson Fury’s skills, IQ, and past record sets him apart from all, positioning him as the favorite over Wilder once again.
