Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder seem ready to settle their dispute for once and all in a stellar trilogy collision that will go down in the ring on October 9. With the WBC world heavyweight title at stake, Fury and Wilder will turn around after a similar length of layoff to collide in one final battle. However, Tyson Fury, who had reportedly contracted Covid-19, hasn’t really opened up much about his ongoing camp.

He appears to have recovered and might be back at the gym. But ‘The Gypsy King’ hasn’t revealed a lot about his health and conditioning. However, his brother Tommy Fury did just that in the latest press meet of Woodley vs Paul. ‘TNT’ Tommy Fury will appear on August 29 and face Anthony Taylor on the same card.

While he addressed several scenarios surrounding his own camp and the upcoming fight, the 22-year-old also shed light on Tyson Fury’s camp for Deontay Wilder.

Tommy Fury said, “Yeah, Tyson is looking spectacular. I was on the phone too this morning. He is deep in training camp and he is fit, he is healthy. He is ready to go and Tyson got Wilder’s number. You know he already done him in twice. It’s gonna be the same story from October 9 and Tyson is like myself. He is cool, calm, relaxed, and just can’t wait to get in there.”

Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3 was originally scheduled for June 9. But Fury’s sudden medical reports postponed the event for a few more months. While we are still more than a month away from the fight, both men seem to have their chances of winning the show.

Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3- Heavyweight slugfest

Unlike Fury, Wilder has been in the gym with his trainer Malik Scott for months. After announcing his return, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ has appeared very different from what he had looked like in the past. Far away from trash-talking or verbal feuds, Deontay Wilder has seemed focused on his training regime. But he has also vowed to bring a fatal outcome for ‘The Gypsy King’ whenever they meet inside the ring.

But Tyson Fury is still the favorite on paper, especially after the lopsided win in the second collision against Wilder in February 2020. So, it leaves the door open to both men relishing their chances of winning in a potential slugfest.
