Deontay Wilder Gears Up To Avenge His Only Loss Against Tyson Fury
Deontay Wilder has conveyed his intentions of avenging the only loss of his career against Tyson Fury.
Since then, Wilder has made few changes to his team, dropping former co-trainer, Mark Breland. Wilder had accused Breland of disloyalty and made allegations that his former coach may have spiked the water bottle in the corner.
Wilder has added former foe, Malik Scott as a replacement for Breland. He has joined the team as a head trainer earlier this year.
“Even on my worst night, on [Fury’s] best night, he still couldn’t get me out of there. People would try to label it as a knockout but that’s not a knockout,” Wilder told BTSport.
“No, that’s a stoppage because of a weak individual in my team that did something he wasn’t supposed to do and that’s throw in the towel.”
The Alabama native has promised to leave everything in the ring when he faces WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury in a trilogy fight, on Saturday, October 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The two goliaths first met each other in the ring in December 2018 where the Gypsy King dominated the most course of the fight, but Wilder came up with a vicious right hook in the twelfth and final round of the bout, dropping Fury to the canvas.
It seemed all over for the English man but he somehow got up on his feet and survived the bell.
The fight ended in a controversial twelve-round split draw.
They met again in a rematch in February 2020, and this time it was Gypsy King who recorded two knockdowns and eventually finished the fight in the seventh round to get his name written on the WBC title.
“I ended the fight on my feet. It’s a difference between the knockout and someone ending it on their feet, you know. I’m just looking forward to this time around and I can’t wait again.”
