Former WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder is looking forward to handing out a revenge to reigning Champ Tyson Fury when they meet for the third time this weekend, Oct 9th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Wilder was subjected to a one sided beat down in the second meeting with Tyson Fury in February 2020, when he got dropped twice in the fifth and the seventh round respectively en route to a seventh round stoppage loss.
Before then, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury battled to a controversial split draw back in December 2018, when Fury largely out boxed Wilder through 12 rounds but got brutally dropped in the ninth round and the final round and was given too much time in the latter to recover by the referee.
Wilder wasn’t happy with the stoppage loss and was unhappy with his team members for throwing in the towel. He has since then, fired his head coach Breland from his team and brought in former foe Malik Scott to the team, made a huge shuffle to his team.
“Even on my worst night, on [Fury’s] best night, he still couldn’t get me out of there,” Wilder told BT Sport. “People would try to label it as a knockout but that’s not a knockout.
“No, that’s a stoppage because of a weak individual in my team that did something he wasn’t supposed to do and that’s throw in the towel.
“I ended the fight on my feet. It’s a difference between the knockout and someone ending it on their feet, you know. I’m just looking forward to this time around and I can’t wait again.”
