Seeing this fight, a former opponent of Anthony Joshua has some advice and tips for Deontay. Charles Martin was on the undercard of Fury vs Wilder 2. He picked up a win over Gerald Washington via KO. He watched the main event closely and had a lot to say.

Martin said, “Well, he just has to go back to the drawing board. And he needs to be more of a boxer and really not abandon the things that he should be working on and getting sharper at to win fights.” He added, “Basically, if he can’t box and he isn’t using the jab it is just going to be all bad for him again because Fury is a good boxer. This is the sport of boxing and not the sport of one-punch knock you out. You can’t knock out everybody and you definitely can’t knockout everybody with one punch so that is not something you should rely on.”

Deontay said, “I’m almost sure that he will take a rematch because he’s a dynamite puncher. At any time he can take somebody out,” he said last month. With that danger, then you’re always in a fight. I’m pretty sure we’ll run it back again if he wants to. But if he doesn’t want to, these are my promoters and whatever they want to do, I’m happy with. Whoever’s next will get the same treatment, that’s for sure.” 

Deontay is up and already preparing for his next bout irrespective of the opponent. He prefers Fury next but will take anyone.
