Wilder Predicts A Fury KO In Mid-To-Late Rounds
Deontay Wilder’s strengths in the ring lie in his knockout power as he has knocked out every boxer put in front of him and expects that trend to continue.
Wilder’s next fight will have him defend his WBC heavyweight world title against former unified champion Tyson Fury on December 1 and expects to knock him out once more.
“I’m going to knock him out for sure, you’re definitely going to hear about a knockout. That’s what I do and that’s what is going to happen, for sure,” Wilder said.
But know the question for Wilder is at what point will the knockout come? Wilder has knocked out opponents late in fights, such as Luis Ortiz in the 10th round back in March and Bermane Stiverne in the first round of their rematch last year.
The longtime WBC champion predicts that he will knock out Fury around the middle rounds at the earliest, believing that the fight will not be a quick one as with some of Wilder’s past fights. Fury will be taking a big step up in competition after winning his first two fights against Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta after a lengthy absence from the sport.
“I think mid-to-late rounds. I don’t think it’s going to be an early night. It’s going to be mid-to-late rounds and we’re going to see what happens. I’m going to knock him out for sure, you’re definitely going to hear about a knockout. That’s what I do and that’s what is going to happen, for sure.”
