Both Wilder and Fury are in their true element for this battle. They are physically in proper shape and have the most ideal mindset to come up and showcase their best versions.

In his fresh interaction with ESPN, ‘The Gypsy King’ said, “Does it go the distance? No chance. I’ll stop him again. I’ll smash him. I’ll submit him this time. Like an MMA fighter, I’ll make him quit. I’ll punish him severely. I’m going to really, really damage him.” (h/t Michael Benson)

Fury, before his second fight with Wilder, promised to only go ahead with his shots and press the Alabama native. He did exactly that and this approach worked wonders for him.

‘The Bronze Bomber’ had no answers to the Lancashire native’s assault. Citing Wilder’s apprehensive approach, Fury capitalized with big blows.

‘The Gypsy King’ dropped Wilder twice in the fight, shocking the hard hitter. Building on that, he administered a beating on Wilder that prompted ‘The Bronze Bomber’s corner to throw in the towel.

Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3 – Will this fight be similar to the second fight?

The undefeated Fury is a true favorite to win the fight. However, Wilder will look to change the narrative and ensure that February 2020 isn’t repeated in October 2021.

Over the past few months, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ worked relentlessly on his movements and defense. Hence, pre-fight belief is that it won’t be like the second fight.

However, as ‘The Bronze Bomber’ will be at his heaviest for this fight, it won’t be so easy for him to carry that weight and move like a lightweight. Despite that, his approach will be worth the watch.
