Tyson Fury feels many in the boxing world are overlooking the danger that Deontay Wilder brings to the ring and will be bring to the ring, when they both share the ring for the third time at the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday night.
Fury was at the end of two brutal punches from Wilder in the ninth round and the final round of their first meeting back in 2018 and will can testify from his two meetings, it’s no joke sharing the ring with the Bronze Bomber.
Wilder has knocked out every opponent he has faced in the ring except Fury and from Fury’s encounter in the first fight, it was important to avoid getting caught with Wilder’s big punch in the second fight.
After finishing the first meeting with Wilder with a split draw, Fury was able to subject Wilder to beat down in their second meeting, dropping him twice en route to a seventh round stoppage win, snatching the WBC Heavyweight world title from Wilder.
“A lot of people are writing Wilder off in this fight. They almost look at him like he’s a bum. Like he can’t fight and he’s useless. You can’t write him off,” Fury told the BBC.
“Make no mistake about this, Deontay Wilder is the most dangerous heavyweight out there. Combine them all together and they don’t make a danger like Wilder. So that’s what I’m messing with. I’m playing with an atomic bomb, messing round, clipping wires. Every time you go into the ring with Deontay Wilder you’re playing with that danger.
“This is the third time now I’ve been in the ring with him and every single time he’s been very dangerous. He’s a very dangerous hombre with big, big power and he can close the distance quickly. With most boxers they need to hit you with five punches, with Wilder he can hit you with a quarter punch and knock you spark out.”
Tyson Fury will look to defend the WBC Heavyweight title for the first time since defeating Deontay Wilder this coming weekend at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas. The fight will be broadcasted live on FOX Sports and ESPN.
