Despite his underdog status, Deontay Wilder isn’t lacking confidence ahead of the trilogy fight against Tyson Fury for his lost WBC title. Instead, Wilder believes he will avenge his sole career loss in fashion. Coming from a humiliating TKO defeat in 2020, the American KO-artist seems to have re-invented himself with trainer Malik Scott.

Although Tyson Fury has denounced all these new antics, there’s no denying that the upcoming fight will bring two of the best heavyweight boxers against each other.

Also, relying on Wilder’s inevitable knockout power, it will be bizarre to write off his chances. Therefore, we can expect the trilogy to be a 50-50 contest, even though Wilder looks behind Fury on odds.

Moreover, the former world champion has sent a stern message to his rival, Tyson Fury. He has suggested ‘The Gypsy King’ to prepare well or chances are that fight night might not end well for him. PBC boxing released a portion of it on social media.

Deontay Wilder said, “Tyson Fury, I’mma gonna be short, sweet, and simple. This fight right here, you better be preparing. You better train your bu** off as if your life depends on it. Because your life depends on it. Don’t go up missing.”

Meanwhile, Tyson Fury’s recent statements actually contrast with what Deontay Wilder advised him. ‘The Gypsy King’ has revealed to have introduced nothing new in his ongoing camp. In a chat with The Volume Sports, Fury spoke out his mind.

“I didn’t take any extra time to prepare. Why do I need to prepare for a bum like Deontay Wilder anyway? I could fight him on three days’ notice at f***ing 400lbs and still knock the p***y out,” said Fury (H/T:- Benson)

All the above-mentioned statements cite Fury vs Wilder 3 as an intense square-off between two of the best in the business. Apart from the infused rivalry, the fight will also determine the course of the heavyweight division, staging a potential four-belt unification fight ahead.

Thus, all of it will happen only after Fury and Wilder settle their differences. Following two battles in the past, the Briton star is 1-fight over his American rival. Thus, the final leg of the rivalry will see either man have the last laugh.
