Tyson Fury calls Deontay Wilder the most dangerous boxer in the heavyweight division right now. In a conversation with the media ahead of the trilogy fight, Fury shared his thoughts on Anthony Joshua’s unanimous decision loss against Oleksandr Usyk and claimed that Deontay Wilder gets past both the boxers comfortably.
Earlier this week, Anthony Joshua dropped a unanimous decision loss against Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk for the heavyweight titles. Needless to say, the loss brought clouds over the highly anticipated Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury. Be that as it may, Joshua has activated the rematch clause, and will have one more chance to keep the hopes of Joshua vs Fury alive. However, Fury also has a huge task ahead of him in the form of Deontay Wilder, and he will have to get past the Bronze Bomber before he can vouch for his name for the unified heavyweight championship once again.
“Did I watch the fight? yes, I did. Was I absolutely wounded that he won? yes, I was. I was hoping Joshua could win the fight. But he couldn’t and that’s none of my business.”
“And one thing I’ve learned in my life, I’m not that I’ve ever been involved in other people’s businesses but I always keep this nose out of everybody else’s business because it’s not my concern. The only thing I am bothered about is beating Deontay Wilder. And that’s the most dangerous heavyweight out there. In my opinion, Wilder beats Joshua, Usyk, all the rest of the division comfortable. But he can not beat me.”

Fury lauded Deontay Wilder and called him ahead of the other heavyweights including his arch-nemesis Anthony Joshua and the newly crowned heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk. That’s certainly saying a lot about Wilder, considering the bitter rivalry
Can Deontay Wilder beat Tyson Fury?
Deontay Wilder has a puncher’s chance against Fury, however, it’s highly unlikely he would be able to land that one punch against someone as technical as Tyson Fury. While there’s no denying Wilder’s power, I feel Fury’s footwork and his movement inside the ring will once again prove to be too much for Wilder who might once again find himself suffering to land a punch.
