He can try and land more punches to me face and that will help his chances of winning. Usually a good idea to hit the opponent in the face as much as possible.

There’s no secret, there’s no rocket science to boxing, although a lot of these fighters today try and make it quite technical and all this ‘downloading data’ bulls**t, I’ve never heard such bollocks in me life.

You know, it’s two men fighting, punching each other in the face and body for 12 rounds or less, there’s no rocket science to it. You gotta train hard, get to bed early, eat right, drink plenty of water, and get stuck in best way you can,” said Tyson Fury.

‘Sugar’ Hill Steward expects Tyson Fury to end the trilogy with a knockout

Tyson Fury‘s trainer, ‘Sugar’ Hill Steward, recently spoke about his progress and development through the training camp. He said that judging by the amount of work that ‘The Gypsy King’ has put in, he has now grown a lot of respect and appreciation for him.

He also believes the WBC champion has doubled his strength and that he is expecting him to finish the trilogy with a clean knockout.

Working with Tyson Fury is like looking at myself in the mirror. We both have tremendous respect for each other. We both understand each other, we’ve grown a lot more closer.”

Tyson Fury’s grown a lot stronger and the things that I wanted him to do as a fighter, he can move, he can punch, he could think, he has defense, he can talk, he could sell a fight, he can make you think he’s lying but he’s telling the truth.”

I’m expecting to see a full-out attack, throwing bombs, hurtful bombs, and showing his devastating knockout power, said ‘Sugar’ Hill Steward.

Tyson Fury cannot underestimate Deontay Wilder

However, underestimating Deontay Wilder could be a huge mistake for the Fury camp.

The former WBC champ has been training nonstop since his first and only loss last year. In recent pad-work videos, he can be seen implementing new moves like body shots, active footwork, and improved head movement.

‘The Bronze Bomber’ has given it his all to prepare for this trilogy fight on October 9. The new visible modifications in his fighting style are key pieces that he clearly lacked in the previous two fights. If he can translate his training to his actual performance on fight night, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ could prove to be a real challenge for the Englishman.
