Tyson Fury announces he’s back in training for Deontay Wilder
By Charles Brun: Tyson Fury has good news that he’s starting training for his trilogy match against Deontay Wilder on October 9th in Las Vegas.
Fury says he’ll be able to bring his daughter back from the hospital on Wednesday, so he’s ready to get back in training for his long-awaited third clash with Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs).
This fight is the most important of the three, as it could signal the end of their rivalry if Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) defeats Wilder for a second time.
Another knockout victory for Fury would surely be the end for Wilder and possibly finish off his career as we’ve known it. Wilder is going to be fighting his heart to avoid Fury wrecking his once-promising career.
Deontay has the power and hand speed advantage over Fury, but he had problems with size and the rabbit punches last time they fought.
“I’m hoping the baby gets out of the hospital on Wednesday, and I can start training for the big dosser Deontay Wilder, which gives me about 7 1/2 weeks, and that’s plenty enough time for a mug like that,” said Tyson Fury on Twitter on Monday.
Fury will be watched closely
There will be many eyes on Fury’s gloves before and during the fight to ensure they’re not loose and flopping around like in his last fight with former WBC champion Wilder.
Additionally, the occasional rabbit punches that Fury was able to hit Wilder with in the last fight likely will result in warnings and perhaps a penalization by the referee.
If Fury wins this fight, he’s going to have to do it cleanly and not by hammering Wilder to the back of the head.
If Fury starts fouling and the referee does nothing to address the issue, Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott will have to make himself heard.
The last time Wilder fought, it looks like he was out there on his own without the referee doing his job to stop the fouling, and Deontay’s trainer wasn’t making an issue about the rabbit punching.
If Fury wins cleanly, there’s no problem because it’s a sport, and I’m sure Wilder won’t have any complaints if it’s a clean fight.
On the other hand, if Fury is getting away with rabbit punching and if his gloves are flopping around, looking like they’re about to slide off his hands, the referee has got to be proactive this time.
What we would hate to see is both fighters just resorting to fouling to try and win.
Wilder has kept it clean in his first two fights, but if he feels getting worked over with fouling by Fury, he might be tempted to get in the mud with him and just make it a foul-fest.
The referee would look inept if both fighters throw the Marquees of Queensbury rules out the window and go Midevil inside the ring.
