Tyson Fury believes that no amount of adjustments can help Deontay Wilder in their trilogy fight.
Tonight (Oct. 9), Fury and Wilder will mix it up a third time. The two will collide inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tyson Fury will be putting the WBC and The Ring Heavyweight gold at stake.
During an interview with Top Rank’s Crystina Poncher, Fury said that he doesn’t doubt Wilder has made improvements since their rematch but it won’t matter (h/t BoxingScene.com).
“I think you could go to college and get a master’s degree in nearly two years. So, for a boxer to change his style is very easy to do. But no matter what Deontay Wilder does, I’m still gonna knock him the f—- out! Quick time, quick fashion. Like my trainer, ‘Sugar Hill,’ says, ‘We’ll just bang and get it over with.’ ”
Fury went on to say that he and trainer SugarHill Steward have been working on some new things of their own.
“Yeah, it’s been good. You know, we’ve had such a long time in the gym together. We’ve been on holidays, we’ve hung out. We’ve done so much stuff, Crystina. It’s been unbelievable. We chilled out in Vegas for quite a few months. We’ve been training the whole time. Not had the fights, unfortunately, but COVID f—– up the world.”
Fury and Wilder first shared the ring back in Dec. 2018. “The Gypsy King” survived two knockdowns and made it to the final bell. The bout was ruled a split draw. In the Feb. 2020 rematch, Tyson Fury demolished Wilder on his way to a seventh-round TKO finish.
The trilogy fight has had a ton of anticipation surrounding it. Wilder has accused Fury of cheating in their second matchup. “The Bronze Bomber” has also hired a new trainer in former heavyweight boxer Malik Scott.
