Tyson Fury: There’s ‘No Chance’ Wilder Trilogy Goes The Distance


Tyson Fury doesn’t believe there’s any chance that his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder will go the distance.

Fury and Wilder will meet again tomorrow night (Oct. 9). Wilder is looking to avenge a seventh-round TKO loss to Fury back in Feb. 2020. It was the first pro boxing defeat in “The Bronze Bomber’s” career. Wilder lost the WBC gold as a result.

When asked by ESPN if he thinks there’s any chance the trilogy bout goes the distance, Tyson Fury made it clear he doesn’t think it will (via Michael Benson).

“Does it go the distance? No chance. I’ll stop him again. I’ll smash him. I’ll submit him this time. Like an MMA fighter, I’ll make him quit. I’ll punish him severely. I’m going to really, really damage him.”

Fury is undefeated in his pro boxing career. His first meeting with Wilder back in Dec. 2018 ended in a split draw. Fury survived two knockdowns in the fight. As mentioned, Fury ran through Wilder in the rematch.

Since the rematch, Wilder has ousted trainer Mark Breland in favor of Malik Scott. Wilder has also bulked up to 238 pounds for this fight. Wilder was 231 for the rematch, hoping that he’d be able to withstand Fury’s size advantage. It didn’t work for him in the rematch but he insists things will play out differently in the trilogy bout.

Wilder has hurled cheating accusations Fury’s way. He claimed “The Gypsy King” loaded his gloves with egg weights in their second encounter. He even accused Mark Breland of spiking his water.

Fury has joked that he will cheat again by stuffing his gloves with more metal and dynamite. He has also questioned what Wilder’s excuse will be this go-around.

We won’t have to wait long to find out who will get the last laugh.
