Back in February 2020, Tyson Fury put on the performance of his life as he demolished the highly intimidating Deontay Wilder. Before the fight, he promised to only march ahead with his power-packed blows. When the actual fight took place, Fury did what he said and attained a stupendous win.

Now, ‘The Gypsy King’ is again aligned to face Wilder for the third time on October 9. That said, the hype behind this contest is insane and fans are rooting for another eye-catchy tussle.

Recently, the WBC heavyweight champ, in an interaction with Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports, gave a prediction for his upcoming fight with ‘The Bronze Bomber’.

“I’m predicting another knockout. We’re going to go out there and start trading punches from round 1 and I’m going to land on him. I’m going not to stop punching him until he’s on the floor,” responded Fury.

Fury, in his first fight against Wilder, made adjustments, citing Wilder’s approach. In this fight, he landed his quick jabs and right hands on the Alabama native. However, he remained sharp with his footwork to avoid the wrath of Wilder’s power. Despite his best efforts, he got caught with the same twice.

However, in the rematch, Fury polished himself and only stayed on the front foot to vanquish Wilder. This approach helped him outclass his nemesis in every department and attain a T/KO win in round 7.

Will the trilogy be a cakewalk for Tyson Fury?

Over the past few months, he has worked extremely hard to adapt to a new fight style which comprises offense, defense, and sharp movement. That being said, on paper, it won’t be a cakewalk for Tyson Fury and it may not be as easy a knockout as ‘The Gypsy King’ predicted.
