Deontay Wilder looking dangerous training for Tyson Fury trilogy
By Charles Brun: Deontay Wilder looks fast, powerful, and DANGEROUS in his newly released training video of him preparing with coach Malik Scott for his trilogy match against ‘The Gypsy King’ Tyson Fury on October 9th.
The former WBC heavyweight champion Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) shows massive improvements in head movement, body punching, and maneuverability with his mitt workouts.
Malik has fine-tuned Wilder’s game to prepare him perfectly to deal with the huge 270+ lb gargantuan Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) on October 9th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Will Fury pull out of the fight again?
The Fury vs. Wilder 3 trilogy was recently moved to October 9th from the original date of July 24th after allegedly Tyson came down with COVID-19. Many boxing fans believe that Fury never had COVID.
Fans think it’s a case of Fury going into panic mode after being repeatedly thrashed by his sparring partners Jared Anderson and Efe Ajagab during training camp for the July 24th fight with the 6’7″ Deontay.
Rather than stick it out and give it his best shot, it’s believed that Fury chose to bail on the fight and reschedule for October 9th, hoping that he’ll be in better form by then.
Assuming this rumor is true about Fury pulling out of the fight because he was getting royally pummeled, it could mean that we’ll see another postponement if those two are used for this training camp. Hopefully not, but you never know.
Fury isn’t going to want to go into his trilogy match with Deontay after getting beaten up daily by the young gun Jared Anderson or the knockout artist Ajagba.
As you can see in the video, Wilder is focusing on throwing body shots to prepare him to attack Fury’s soft midsection. Fury’s Achilles heel is his flabby stomach, and Wilder and Scott are clearly aware of that.
Wilder must learn from Jared Anderson’s success
It would also be a good idea for Wilder to learn from Jared Anderson’s success with his sparring of Fury. Anderson is a combination puncher, and it’s believed that he overwhelmed Fury with shots.
As such, instead of Wilder focusing on throwing single punches, as he’s done in both of his fights with Fury with mixed results, he would be better off attacking in a huge tsunami-like surge.
Throwing single shots makes it easy for Fury to dodge and then land his clubbing rabbit shots in return. Against a guy like that, you’ve got to unload with nonstop shots to overwhelm Fury’s ability to make his opponents miss.
We’ve seen how Fury was successful against Wilder and Wladimir Klitschko’s one punch at a time styles. It’s obvious that style of fighting DOESN’T work against Fury. In fact, it’s a recipe for disaster. The fighters that have enjoyed the most success against Fury, Otto Wallin and ‘Big John McDermott, used combination punching to get the better of him.
Fury should have lost his first to McDermott, and he clearly should have been stopped in the Wallin fight. That was a fight in which Fury fought with a horrendous cut from the second round.
With a cut like that, most fights would have been stopped early, but Fury was allowed to fight with it.
Fury: I’m going to punish Wilder BADLY
“I’m feeling really good. I was over there and was two weeks away from the fight. I came down with COVID, and I had to quit and come back home and take a month off,” said Tyson Fury to The Lateish Show.
“I’m going to go into camp for 10 weeks, and then I’m going to go back to America, and I’m going to kick some a**,’ Fury said in predicting another win over Wilder.
“I’m really going to have to f*** him up this time. I’m not going to knock him out like last time. I’m going to make him pay,” Fury said of Wilder. “I’m going to punish him badly. 100%, he’s going to get smashed.
“I’ll probably tell him, ‘Get your excuse ready now, a long, long list of them,’ because I’m going to retire him after this fight,” said Fury.
