Tyson Fury – Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury

A 32-year-old native of Manchester, Tyson Fury, made his debut in the pro ring in December 2008, having 35 amateur fights (30 wins, 26 KO, 5 losses), including as part of the national teams of England and Ireland, he became a prize-winner of the world and European youth championships.

Until 2015, he managed to win several regional titles in the heavyweight division (BBBofC, EBU, WBO International), and received the status of a megastar after defeating the dominant heavyweight champion, Wladimir Klitschko (on 28.11.2015, he won by unanimous decision and became the owner of the IBF/IBO/WBO/WBA championship belts). After a triumphant ascent, the newly-made champion could not cope with the burden of fame and struggled for 2 years with psychological problems that almost ended his career (he refused titles and was deprived of his boxing license).

The return of the "Gypsy King" took place in 2018 and began with 2 victories:
  • June 9-ahead of schedule (RTD, Round 4) won against the representative of Albania, Sefer Seferi (23-1);
  • August 18-got the upper hand (UD) over the former European champion and ex-contender for the world title, Italian Francesco Pianeta.
The main goal of Fury was the WBC title, which was owned by the undefeated American knockout, Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs). Their first match was held on 01.12.2018 and ended in a draw (the "Bronze Bomber" retained the title, which he defended for the 8th time). On 22.02.2020, a rematch took place, in which Fury won a convincing victory, by technical knockout in the 7th round.

This victory opened the way for the Briton to a unification match for the title of absolute world champion with his compatriot, Anthony Joshua, but the megafight announced several times was postponed, because Wilder again intervened in the situation, having obtained through the court the right to a third fight with the "Gypsy King".

Tyson Fury has a track record of 30 wins (21 KOs) and 1 draw. The fighter has impressive anthropometric data-height 206 cm, arm span 216 cm, and uses both a left-sided and right-sided stance. The head coach is his uncle, Peter Fury.

Deontay Wilder

Boxing career, one of the most formidable punchers of the heavyweight division, Deontay Wilder, who received the nickname "Bronze Bomber", began in the amateur ring, where he became the champion of the United States and won "bronze" at the Beijing Olympics, after which he turned professional.

Tyson Fury – Deontay Wilder Fight Prediction

Before the end of the trilogy, the shocking Tyson Fury is full of optimism and in his characteristic manner "destroys" his opponent in numerous interviews, reinforcing the verbal attack with regular trolling in social networks. After the dominant victory in the 2nd match ,the "Gypsy King" is sure that he" calculated " Wilder and is ready to show his trump cards again, which played a key role in his success:
  • Unpredictable gameplay (can work in different styles);
  • Skillful use of advantages in anthropometry;
  • A wide arsenal of technical actions;
  • Excellent timing and footwork.
All these arguments, combined with the increased striking power (the merit of coach Fury, Sugar Hill), cast great doubt on the chances of the "Bronze Bomber" to pay off the offender and regain the lost WBC title. The lesson that Tyson received in their 1st confrontation, when Deontay's punches sent him to the canvas twice, Fury learned well (the boxing IQ of the" Gypsy King "is at a decent level), while Wilder believed in their strength so much that, having received a counterplay, he turned out to be an easy" prey " in a repeat fight.

Deontay decided that his coaching staff was to blame for everything and in a hurry parted with long-term mentors, but it would be naive to assume that in a year and a half it is possible to compensate for the gaps in skill that accompany the "Bronze Bomber" throughout his career and became obvious when they were "exposed" by Fury.

Wilder "confused the cards" of Tyson, who was preparing for the most important fight with Joshua, but this only further motivates the Briton, who is in excellent shape and understands the level of bets on the outcome of the fight. Of course," lucky punch " has not been canceled, and Fury understands this very well, so he will eliminate the risks as much as possible if Wilder tries to arrange a chopping. With all the past merits of Deontay, he will be an underdog in this fight and may well repeat the sad experience of fight No. 2.
