Deontay Wilder displaying new artillary for Tyson Fury trilogy on July 24th

By Charles Brun: Trainer Malik Scott posted some new video of the talented Deontay ‘Bronze Bomber’ Wilder showing off his new heavy artillery that he’s added to his arsenal for his July 24th trilogy match against Tyson Fury.

The former WBC heavyweight champion Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) is now punching in combinations instead of just one shot at a time as he’d done throughout his 13-year professional career.

A big reason for Fury’s success in his two fights with the 6’7″ knockout artist Wilder was the fact that Deontay was only throwing one shot at a time, usually just right hands.

Wilder can’t let Fury maul him

When Wilder would miss with a shot, Fury was able to counter him repeatedly in close and basically maul him, using his 270+ lb Grizzly bear frame. Wilder fell into the same trap that Wladimir Klitschko did when he fought Fury.

Wladimir was the same type of single-shot type of fighter that Wilder is, and when he’d miss with his right or left hook, Fury was able to counter him with clubbing shots at close range.

Rather than fire back at Fury on the inside, Wladimir would hold. That tactic didn’t work against Fury because he would club Wladimir repeatedly in close before the referee would break them.

“Bronze Bomber, they tried to bury you alive, brother and now it’s your time to prove them all wrong and become 2X Heavyweight Champion, I can’t wait.💣⚔️ It’s us against them,” said coach Malik Scott on Instagram talking about Wilder.

“Unapologetic: Glaz za Glaz [eye to eye],” Scott continued. “Retribution: Bad Intentions as usual.”

Wilder is also showing off some excellent body punching and forward that he’ll need for the Fury trilogy. Landing to Fury’s midsection is a must for Wilder if he wants to take the 6’9′ fighter’s wheels away from him.

What Wilder really needs, though, is the ability to fight in close because he’s going to have to be able to do that each time he misses with one of his bazooka-like right hands.

Fury is going to use his 40-lb weight advantage to make a mess of Wilder in close when he misses with his shots, and we could have a repeat of their match last year.

Otto Wallin showed how to beat Fury

What Wilder needs in training camp is the big 6’6″ Otto Wallin, who showed that he could more than match Tyson Fury at close range fighting in their clash in September 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Wallin was missing with his power shots as well from the outside, but when he would keep firing punches when he was close.

The big Swede Wallin didn’t let Fury club him repeatedly on the inside without nailing him back with hurtful shots. Fury should have lost the fight with Wallin, given the terrible cut that he suffered in the third round.

It’s unbelievable that the ringside doctor allowed Fury to fight for a full 12 rounds with that cut. Many boxing fans believe that the fight would have been stopped if the B-side fighter Wallin was the one that was cut instead of Fury.

If Wilder is going to beat Fury, he’ll need to be able to fire punches when he’s in close range after throwing a right-hand shot. In other words, Wilder can’t depend on the referee to break him after he winds up in close after he throws his right hands.

Wilder has got to be able to punch his way out. That’s the difference between Wilder and Anthony Joshua. With Joshua, when he’s on the inside, he’s firing punches one after another.

He’s not letting his opponents club him repeatedly at close range and then waiting helplessly for the referee to break the action.
