Tyson Fury’s Trainer Discusses Plans With Deontay Wilder Trilogy In Doubt
If you haven’t heard by now, Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder III is looking bleak.
Fury and Wilder were expected to swing leather a third time on December 19. The WBC Heavyweight Title fight would’ve been held inside Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. Top Rank Boxing’s Bob Arum revealed that the date was a no-go. Eventually, Fury said he has “moved on” from the trilogy fight with Wilder and will fight someone else on December 5.
It’s an interesting scenario. While Fury’s team is adamant that “The Gypsy King” has moved, WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman says that as of now, the bout is still on.
Fury’s trainer, Sugarhill Steward believes it makes more sense for Fury to fight someone other than Wilder before 2020 comes to a close. Here’s what Steward told Sky Sports.
“Tyson and myself agree that another fight in 2020 makes sense, in sticking with the original plan to fight this year, period. I am really excited to see Tyson in the ring again to once again watch him grow into a fighter which the world anticipates viewing his future bouts henceforth in his career.”
To this point, Fury has amassed a pro boxing record of 30-0-1. Of those 30 victories, 21 of them have come by way of knockout. In his most recent outing, he stopped Wilder in the seventh round via TKO.
Wilder’s loss to Fury was the first of his pro boxing career. The knockout artist was a perfect 42-0 with 41 knockouts to his credit before his two fights with Fury. “The Bronze Bomber” has gone 0-1-1 in his last two bouts.
