Deontay Wilder has violent intentions for Tyson Fury for their trilogy fight on July 24.
After Fury TKO’d Wilder in February of 2020, the plan was for Fury to face Anthony Joshua in a highly-anticipated bout. It was then agreed to for August, but an arbitrator ruled Wilder was owed the third fight and Fury wouldn’t pay him step aside money.
Now, ahead of the trilogy, Wilder says he has a different mindset and is confident he will beat Fury to get back his titles. Not only does he think he will win, but he says he wants to decapitate Fury.
“Y’all don’t wanna miss this one. My mindset is just so different right now,” Wilder said (via Mirror). “Even right now, I don’t even feel like I’m here. My mentality is – you’ve been contemplating about hurting a person so bad, to the point you wanna disfigure him so his mother wouldn’t even know who he was. When you’ve had your mind on that, like you wanna decapitate him in every f*****g way possible, it’s like that premeditated stuff.
“When I do see him, I’m gonna love to see what I feel and what I’m thinking, how my senses change when he’s in my environment. I’ve been contemplating, premeditating whooping this man. Now that we have a date, like training has been even more intense. Those other camps, although they were intense, we had no guidance, no ETA, we just knew we wanted to stay in shape… Now it means something now. It’s for certain now. There’s nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, you got to go through me. The hardest puncher in the heavyweight division, probably in history, and I’m going to continue to do that.”
Deontay Wilder fought Fury to a draw in the first fight, yet “The Bronze Bomber” dropped him and nearly had him knocked out. In the trilogy, however, Wilder will need to make major adjustments if he’s going to win.
