Tyson Fury believes that Deontay Wilder is making one of the biggest mistakes in his bid to reclaim the WBC Heavyweight title in their Third meeting on Saturday night Oct 9th at the T-Mobile Arena. Live on FOX Sports Pay-Per-View And ESPN.
Fury believes that Wilder is failing to admit the defeat from his last fight which will hamper his quest in identifying the mistakes, he did in the fight while developing a better technique capable of getting him a win, when they collide one again this weekend.
Tyson Fury totally destroyed the formerly unbeaten Wilder in their second meeting, dropping him twice in the fifth round and in the seventh round and leaving him totally bloodied before his Mark Breland, his then assistant trainer threw in the towel. The win directly made him the new WBC heavyweight world champion.
Deontay Wilder after that loss, fired accusations in all directions and blamed everyone for his loss. He blamed his heavy suit for the weakness of his legs, blamed members of his team for spiking his water, blamed the referee and Fury for putting an egg-plant in his gloves and many more.
Wilder made a huge change to his camp, bring in his friend and former foe Malik Scott as his new head trainer. However, Fury believes Wilder can only win, if he is able to admit defeat, which goes a long way in dentify mistakes and work towards correcting them.
“If he went into this fight saying, ‘You know what? I got absolutely annihilated the second time, it’s probably going to happen to me again,’ then his mental attitude would definitely be of a loss straight away. But if he’s convinced himself that there’s been some skullduggery going on, maybe he thinks in his own mind he has got a better chance or something,” Fury told MMA Hour.
“Acceptance is a hard thing because nobody wants to accept the truth. When I was an alcoholic, I didn’t want to be told I was an alcoholic. I didn’t want to be told I’m a fat bastard. I was just happy being that. It’s almost like this little game in your own head where you don’t want to know the truth even though you do know the truth. I always knew I was a fat bastard. I knew I was addicted to alcohol but I didn’t want it pushed in my face.
“The moment that I accepted that I had to change and I had to get help and stop what I was doing, that’s the moment I could step away from it all and start again. From what I’m hearing from this idiot here, he hasn’t accepted what’s happened to him. Therefore, without accepting defeat, you can never regain. You can never go on from that. ‘Cause you’re still dwelling on the past.
“So there’s my advice. If he’s listening or some of his team is listening — acceptance first, acknowledgment, and then you can move on.”
