The first fight between the Alabama native and ‘The Gypsy King’ took place in 2018. Many expected Wilder to go full throttle against the former and knock him out in the early rounds itself. Yet, the Brit took the entire fight world by storm as he boxed until the final bell.

Fury gave ‘The Bronze Bomber’ a tough outing and displayed a champion mentality. However, the fight ended in a tragic draw, opening the doors for an enigmatic rematch. With that, in February 2020, the duo collided yet again, and this time it was Tyson Fury, who went all guns blazing.

He knocked Wilder down multiple times in this fight, handing him his first career loss.

Although the trilogy hasn’t fetched any official status yet, the ex-WBC champ has begun preparing for this fight in his own way. It seems, ‘The Bronze Bomber’, who took notes of his mistakes, is working hard to ensure that they aren’t there for Fury to exploit in their next fight.

Additionally, this contest is highly important for Wilder to escalate his boxing stint from hereon. If he secures a win against his foe, he’ll open himself up for an undisputed title fight. However, a loss could condemn him to the wilderness at heavyweight.
