Tony Bellew Tips Deontay Wilder To Overcome Tyson Fury Loss
Former Cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew believes the former WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder will bounce back from his horrible loss to Tyson Fury.
In February, Deontay Wilder was handed the first loss of his professional career, succumbing to a one sided beatdown that saw the former champion get dropped twice en route to a seventh round stoppage loss. Fury also carted away with the WBC heavyweight title in the process.
Before their meeting this year, the two heavyweight giants battled to a controversial twelve round split draw back in December 2018, which paved way for their second meeting.

Wilder has since exercise his optional rematch clause for a third fight which was initially scheduled to take place on the 18th of July but has been pushed back due to the ongoing Corona Virus Pandemic. It is now tentatively scheduled for October.
“He deserved an awful lot of credit for the last fight [against Fury] because he was taking a one-sided pounding and beating, and he showed the heart of a lion,” Bellew said during an appearance on ‘Colin Murray’s 52 podcast. “He will be back.
“Not anybody can carry out Tyson Fury’s game plan – so don’t think this guy will come back and everyone can do that to him. That’s not going to happen.
“Very very few will be able to dictate the pace and dictate the range to Deontay Wilder like Tyson Fury did. Tyson Fury is a master boxer.”
