Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder came face to face for the first time since their rematch in 2020. It was a bizarre yet intense faceoff as Deontay Wilder decided not to answer any media questions.
On the other hand, Tyson Fury made sure that he reminds Wilder of the beating he took in the rematch. The Gypsy King even predicted to finish Wilder faster in the trilogy compared to the second encounter. Besides that, Fury made a shocking revelation about his game plan for the trilogy as he said that he will be weighing in at 300 lbs for his upcoming fight.
Now, this might shock many boxing fans considering the fact that Fury only weighed 273 lbs for the rematch against Deontay Wilder. It is to be noted that the highest Fury has weighed in during a fight was 276 lbs and it was against Sefer Seferi back in 2018. Fury confessed:
“I am building my weight up. I am trying to get up to 300 lbs for this fight. Because I am looking for a big knockout straight away.”
Now, this may concern the fans of Fury as the extra weight might limit the movement of the Gypsy King which is a huge weapon for him inside the boxing ring. However, Fury is not worried about that as he is aiming for one-punch KO power going into the trilogy. Fury stated: “I am not looking for movement or speed, I am just looking for a knockout like I did last time”
Tyson Fury makes a bold prediction for the Deontay Wilder trilogy
Just as he did before the rematch Tyson Fury predicted the outcome of the trilogy against Deontay Wilder during the press conference and stated:
“Deontay Wilder is a one-trick pony. He has got one-punch power. We all know that. Great. But what I am going to do to Deontay Wilder this time is I am gonna run him over as if I’m a 18-wheeler and he is a human being. And I guarantee you he does not go past what he did before. Because before I had 5-6 weeks of practicing of what I was gonna do to him. This time I would have 18 months of practicing what I am gonna do to him. I anticipated it is gonna be like a 18 wheeler running over somebody.”
Now there is a huge possibility that the outcome of the trilogy is not going to change much from the rematch. However, it seems it seems it’ll be a different Deontay Wilder who will fight Tyson Fury on July 24th. So we might see a much better version of The Bronze Boomber or we might see a Wilder with less confidence coming off his first loss.
