On October 9, the boxing fraternity will witness a trilogy between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. The pair have gone after each other twice and both these fights are rightly cemented in fans’ memories. Given what fans remember from the first two bouts, a third meet between the hard hitters is expected to shatter massive viewership records for obvious reasons.

Recently, Top Rank Boxing made a short documentary on Tyson Fury’s progress and activities for the Wilder trilogy. In this video, ‘The Gypsy King’s busted lip caught everyone’s eye and gave fans the opportunity to question his training methods. This is because Fury might have succumbed to the busted lip during his sparring sessions.

In their first two fights, Fury easily dominated Wilder by staying on the front foot and pressing the latter with his shots. However, as the ex-champ has worked tremendously on his movements for this trilogy, he is eager to pull off something out of the box on October 9. His training videos may have forced Fury to go that extra mile, resulting in the cut just days before their collision.

He, too, will come ahead and look to fight smartly rather than just throwing his right hand in search of a knockout.

On the other hand, Fury will look to stay composed and expose Wilder if ‘The Bronze Bomber’ makes a mistake. Both fighters are knockout artists and have promised a quick finish. Hence, every second will be vital, as all it takes for an opening is a split-second lapse in concentration.
