Deontay Wilder on Tyson Fury trilogy: ‘Don’t blink, Baby”
By Scott Gilfoid: Deontay Wilder is vowing to make quick work of Tyson Fury on October 9th when the two battle it out in their long-awaited trilogy match on FOX Sports PPV.
Wilder is like a giant bow that has been slowly pulled back for the last nineteen months, and he’s ready to be released on October 9th.
The talented former WBC heavyweight champion Wilder has a lot of pent of anger that he wants to unleash on Fury after how their last fight played out in 2020, as he thinks the big ‘Gypsy King’ was dealing from the bottom of the deck with his rabbit punching and flapping gloves.
When Wilder gets big 6’9″ Fury in the ring on October 9th, he’s planning on royally thrashing him and taking back his WBC property. As far as Wilder is concerned, Fury has it coming for making him look bad last year.
Fury humiliated the 6’7″ Deontay in front of his own fans in Las Vegas by roughing him up, dropping twice en route to scoring a seventh round knockout.
Wilder ready to exact revenge
“I’m a dangerous man at this point in time,” said Wilder to PBC Podcast. “Malik [Scott] and my team have brought the best out of me, and I’m just ready.
“But it don’t mean nothing if you can’t show it to the rest of the world, and I know that. I’m ready to do so. Don’t blink, baby. Don’t blink,” said Deontay.
Wilder was gone physically after getting clubbed by a well-placed punch behind the head by Fury in the third round.
Though Wilder didn’t want the fight to be stopped, he was too hurt from that point on to unleash one of his right-hand bombs on Fury’s big lantern jaw like he’d done in their first fight.
Wilder’s ex-trainer Mark Breland would have done him a good service had he stopped the fight at the end of the third rather than leaving him out there for another four rounds to be used as a punching bag by Fury.
In an indication of how wary Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) of the threat former WBC heavyweight champion Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) brings to the table, he tried to swerve his contractually obligated rematch clause from last year when Wilder was the world champion and Tyson the voluntary challenger.
Fury may sound like he’s not worried about Wilder, but actions speak louder than words. He doesn’t want to go to sleep again as he did in their first fight when Wilder put his lights out in the 12th round in what some boxing fans viewed as a long count.
If Fury wants to win this fight, he’s going to have to walk through pure fire to get the W because Wilder will be bringing the pain on October 9th.
