In a month and a few days from now, Deontay Wilder will challenge Tyson Fury for the WBC world title in an epic trilogy clash to close off his rivalry with the undefeated champion. If not for Fury, the American star would have also remained unbeaten so far. 42-1-1 as a pro, Wilder has only failed to beat Tyson Fury in his entire professional career.

However, he seems prepared to unlock that accomplishment, and October 9 can see him return to his best form ever.

Deontay Wilder was spotted shadow boxing in a river where he was waist-deep in the water. He showcased his sheer speed and punches. Following this, Wilder also took a long dip into the water before walking away. Despite leaving no message for his upcoming opponent, the clip was enough to delight boxing fans who are eagerly waiting to see Fury vs Wilder 3.

It’s been way over a year since Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury had their last fight. So, this massive layoff needs an immediate ending, with both men putting everything at stake one last time. Besides, the trilogy clash will also outline several more matchups in the division and is a highly important bout for the entire chain.

Akin to Wilder, Fury also has all the reasons to believe in his supremacy. After all, he is the one leading the charts with one win over ‘The Bronze Bomber’. However, while the Brit has fallen prey to the complications of Covid-19 during this ongoing camp, Wilder has had an uninterrupted camp. Hence, it’s unfair to write off Wilder’s chances.

The former champion has introduced some prominent changes in his camp, replacing Mark Breland with his former rival Malik Scott. Thus, it will interest many to see whether Wilder can use it all in his favor to level the scores with ‘The Gypsy King’ again. The training clips certainly show that he is doing everything to iron out his errors from February 2020.
