Tyson Fury is one of the biggest boxing stars today. Over the past few years, Fury has stirred the fight world with his absolute magic inside the ring, coupled with his trash talks. He never likes sparing his opponents by any means and whenever he gets an opportunity, he takes a dig at them with no concerns.

That said, recently, the Brit went all out against his fellow compatriot, Anthony Joshua, his promoter, Eddie Hearn, and rival Deontay Wilder too.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said, “I’ll deal with these guys later – the most important thing to me is Wilder, the most dangerous heavyweight in the world who would knock out Joshua in the first round.

“I’ve got to get past Wilder, then those guys will get their five minutes of fame. I’ll give them the biggest beat down they have had in their lives.

“As I’ve told Eddie Hearn, the difference between me and them is they are businessmen and I’m a Spartan.”

Prior to facing Wilder in a trilogy, ‘The Gypsy King’ was in contention to face ‘AJ’ for the undisputed heavyweight championship. But the Alabama native came in like a dark cloud for this battle and abruptly derailed the progressions of the fight. With that, he is now all set to face Fury once again on July 24.

Although the undisputed fight fell through, Fury is still optimistic and is eager to annihilate Wilder yet again. The world will have its attention on this trilogy and the fans would be pining to see who comes out on top.

Will it be easy for Tyson Fury to get past Deontay Wilder this time?

Over the past few months, Wilder has put himself to the test by going through some extreme training regimes. Wilder wants to bring in his A-game for this clash, and for that, he won’t look to budge an inch in his preparation.

Citing that, Fury will have to dig in deep this time, if he wants to claim another thunderous win. He himself has kicked off his camp for this bout and it’ll be intriguing to see what approach he adapts to beat ‘The Bronze Bomber’.

What do you make of Fury’s comments? Do you envisage him beating Wilder for a second time?
