Wilder and Fury have fought each other twice until now. Their first tussle ended in an astounding draw as both the fighters traded substantial punches with each other. The surprising fact in this contest was ‘The Gypsy King’ surviving the wrath of Wilder‘s thunderous power.

Later, to settle on one true winner, the pair fought each other again. This time, it was all about the Brit hammering the Alabama native. Right from the first bell, nothing went well in Wilder’s favor and he failed to land his spine chilling right hands.

As a result, Fury took advantage of the same and he handed ‘The Bronze Bomber’ his first pro-boxing loss. Hence, Wilder will look to return the favor on July 24 and hand ‘The Gypsy King’ his first loss.

Will Deontay Wilder bring in his A-game for this fight?

Though Wilder hasn’t made a ring appearance since his last fight, he has polished up his boxing prowess under his trainer Malik Scott.
