Tyson Fury: I’m coming for you Deontay Wilder
By Allan Fox: Tyson Fury came out of the woodwork on Tuesday to let WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder that he’s coming for him, and he’s going to be looking to “obliterate” him when they do face each other.
Fury, the former IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion, has been out of action for 2 years with his problems. After all this time, Fury has suddenly gotten motivated, acting as if he’s woken from a 2-year slumber. Fury wants to get his boxing license back with the UK Anti-Doping committee and British Boxing Board of Control, and resume his career.
“Guess whose back? The one and only,” said Fury on his Instagram. “Shout out to Bronze Bomber, Deontay Wilder, giving me motivation, telling me I can’t do it and I’m finished. I’m coming back for you, baby. I’m coming back for you. I’m going to fulfill that promise I gave to you a few years ago. You know what I’m talking about,” said Fury.
Wilder and IBF/WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua are Fury’s immediate targets when he’s ready to take on the big dogs in the division. In the short term, Fury will likely be looking to take 2 or 3 easy tune-up bouts against 3rd tier opposition. It depends though on how money hungry Fury is.
If Fury is just looking to get a quick cash out fight, then he’ll go after the 6’5”, 254-pound Joshua right away so he can fill his bank with millions. But if Fury is serious about wanting to be successful with his comeback, then he’ll take his time before he looks to fight Joshua and Wilder. I thinks it’s more likely that Fury will shoot for the big cash against Joshua rather than being smart and getting the rust out first before he takes that fight.
” I’m coming back for the stick man,” said Fury to Wilder. ”The man is struggling with a midget. What will it be like when he’s in with the Gypsy king, 6’9”, 18 ½ stone, and fast? I’ll obliterate you,” said Fury.
Wilder is defending his WBC title this Saturday night against the 6’2” Bermane Stiverne in a rematch on Showtime Championship Boxing at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Wilder isn’t expected to struggle with Stiverne. The fighter that did struggle is Joshua, who had a lot of problems with the 6’1 ½” Carlos Takam last Saturday night at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. Joshua won the fight by a 10th round knockout, but it was far from an easy fight for him. Joshua struggled to win.
