Tyson Fury going offline until after Oct.9th fight with Deontay Wilder
By Scott Gilfoid: Tyson Fury posted on social media on Wednesday to let his loyal fans know that he’s going offline for the next 52 days until AFTER his trilogy match with Deontay Wilder on October 9th. Fury claims that it will be a “total blackout” from him until after he faces Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) for the third time.
Fury was supposed to defend against Wilder on July 24th, but he came down with a bit of COVID-19, resulting in the trilogy being moved to October 9th.
Rumors are that Fury was getting worked over something fierce by sparring partners Jared Anderson and Efe Ajagba in training camp before coming down with COVID-19.
Fight guys, I’m going offline until October 10, som1 else will be keeping you updated, a Total blackout from me. See you in vegas. Let the games begin. 7 weeks Saturday until I smash the big dosser Again,” said Fury.
It’s going to be interesting to see if Fury can resist not posting on social media for the next 52 days without breaking down, putting something up, showing him buying a high-priced item with the millions he’s made.
Fury has only started training for the Wilder fight, leaving him just six weeks to ready himself for the dangerous knockout artist.
There is already a legion of boxing fans that believe WBC heavyweight champion Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) won’t make it to the fight, and he’ll come up with another excuse to swerve the trilogy to avoid a knockout defeat at the hands of Wilder.
If Fury backs out again, WBC interim champion Dillian Whyte calls for the World Boxing Council to strip him and give him the ‘Champions in Recess tag. Whyte wants to be the one to fight Wilder, and that might happen if Fury keeps delaying the fight.
Wilder has been waiting for his contractual rematch with Fury for a year and a half now since he lost in February 2020.
Fury could have gotten the fight over with in 2020, but he thought he could walk away from the contract to fight Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia.
Unfortunately for Fury, that didn’t fly with the U.S arbitrator, who ruled that he must fight Wilder.
Fury might have the same problem that Andy Ruiz Jr had, having problems getting mentally focused in training after enjoying all the money he’s made in the last couple of years.
If you’re Fury, it’s got to be hard for him to get back into the torture of training camp and not to be able to buy things and enjoy all the money.
Fury is struggling with getting the motivation to train for the Wilder fight; it looks bad for him. He doesn’t seem motivated, and he’s about to fight an angry lion in Wilder, who wants to rip him apart.
I wonder who the referee will be? Will they give Fury a count if he’s knocked cold again like in the first fight?
