Earlier, the fight was set for July 24, but unfortunately, since Fury and his team members tested positive for Covid-19, this contest had to be pushed ahead.

With that, both Fury and Wilder got some extra time to prepare for their clash. ‘The Bronze Bomber’, ever since this fight’s announcement, began putting in the hard yards to ensure that he has the best possible shot in the ring.

Recently, Wilder spoke to PBC on FOX about his training and progress. He said, “They are just sharpening me up and allowing me to say now it’s time for retaliation baby.”

Wilder is extremely eager to get his hands on ‘The Gypsy King’. The pair fought each other for the very first time in 2018, and this contest ended with a draw. Post that, the only thing fans wanted to see was a rematch between these two.

In February 2020, Wilder and Fury again met each other. This time, the Brit went all guns blazing to batter Wilder in every department. ‘The Gypsy King’ attained a round 7 T/KO victory and stunned the world. However, the memory of that night may serve as motivation to unleash an even scarier Wilder.
