And now, his new trainer Don House revealed their game plan, going into the fight. “Deontay’s always been focused on knocking his guys in the head. We’re not gonna do that in this fight. We’re gonna fight every minute of every round, we’re gonna box him and we’re gonna break down the body.

“It’s a bigger target, and you see how big Fury’s body is–it’s a bigger target to hit, we’re gonna put that money in the bank, then break him down and knock him out,” House stated in an interview with 78SPORTSTV.
