Tyson Fury signs contract for Deontay Wilder trilogy on July 24th in Las Vegas

Deontay Wilder Tyson Fury

By Charles Brun: Tyson Fury signed his contract on Saturday to face Deontay Wilder in the trilogy fight on July 24th in Las Vegas. After signing, Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) made a first-round knockout prediction over the former WBC heavyweight champion Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs).

During ESPN’s broadcast tonight, Fury said this about Wilder, “B***, you’re getting knocked out.”

Wilder already signed his portion of the contract on Friday, and he looks ready to take Fury out. After Fury failed to sign on the same day, there was some speculation whether he would refuse and hope that he could slide out of the fight.

Obviously, the only way Fury could do that would be for him to pay Wilder some of the green that would have gotten from his $75 million purse for the August 14th fight against Anthony Joshua in Saudi.

Fury could have paid Wilder $20 million and likely gotten him out of his hair so that he could proceed forward to take the Joshua fight.

With Fury jet-setting around the globe from one place to another, he doesn’t look like he’s got his mind on boxing. Moreover, Fury is carrying around a worrisome amount of fat on the sides of his waist.

It’s just too bad Wilder had to take Fury to arbitration to get his rematch with him because they had a contract from their previous fight last year in February.

With his new trainer Malik Scott, Wilder looks like a completely different fighter since last year. As good as Wilder is looking right now, it won’t be surprising if he knocks Fury out in the first three rounds.

Fury doesn’t look like he’s in shape, and it appears he’s too busy living the life of a millionaire. You hate to say it, but the money and celebrity lifestyle is starting to cause Fury to lose his focus on the sport. In other words, Fury doesn’t have the eye of the tiger-like he used to.

Fury is assuming that because of his rabbit-punch assisted win over an injured, one-armed Wilder last year, that he doesn’t need to train, jet around the world, and not work hard.

The contrast between Wilder looking slim, fast, and devastatingly powerful and that of the blubbery Fury, it’s like night and day.

Not only does Fury look flabby, but he also appears slower and weaker than the fighter that clubbed Wilder into submission a year ago.

Fury’s physique makes him look considerably older than the fighter he was a year ago. I guess the old saying is true, ‘If you don’t use it, you lose it.’ The unfortunate part about Fury looking disengaged mentally and out of shape is that he’ll make excuses if he loses.
