The Boxing world is full of surprises with twists and turns. While everyone was expecting a Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua bout, the legal team of Deontay Wilder won the case for a rematch with the Gypsy King. Then a unanimous decision to Usyk turned the tables upside down. In a trilogy bout, Tyson Fury will face Deontay Wilder in what might be his last match at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada.
The bout was earlier scheduled for July 2021 but Fury tested positive for COVID-19 and it was postponed. Now, it is finally happening and Fury is getting unwavering support from all the boxing fans. Tyson Fury snatched the WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles from Deontay Wilder in the previous meeting. The initial faceoff between the two giants ended in a controversial draw. So, team Fury and team Wilder will be eagerly waiting to decide who is the best.
Another championship bout takes place in the fight card, Nigeria’s Efe Ajagba challenges Frank Sanchez of Cuba for the WBC Continental Americas and WBO-NABO heavyweight titles. Even the other two bouts in the fight card are heavyweight bouts, so at least one or two faces will be deshaped by the end of Saturday.

Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder
At the end of the first bout, both the boxers showed mutual respect by hugging each other. Deontay Wilder’s power clearly showed in the first bout, he threw a right hook followed by a left in the most threatening way. Fury saw blood in the second bout and an overwhelming victory, things changed drastically. In a social media post, Wilder accused Fury of cheating in the rematch. A few conspiracy theories spilled out of the mouth of Wilder as well. However, the pandemic pulled down the curtains at the right time and it provided Wilder with more than enough time to reflect upon.
Now, the Alabama boxer is a stark contrast to the Gypsy King, he is serious and furious at the same moment. His mentality will reflect in the outcome and there is no other way for the fans to understand him in the current circumstances. Deontay Wilder made a few changes within his team, making Malik Scott his new chief of staff and his sparring buddy is Robert Helenius. Jay Deas and Don House haven’t left the Wilder camp, they will deliver the needed support for the former champion.
In hindsight, there is a bit of reasoning behind Wilder’s fuming and grumbles. He certainly looked like he was under a spell in the second bout. A pinch of fear or over alertness was lingering in those dark eyes since the first round. In the second round, Fury delivered a clean shot to Wilder’s left ear and probably damaged his eardrum. Cause after that, Wilder’s legs started to give up and were wobbly, to say the least. Wilder really did never come back into the match after that, he was throwing punches in the air for most of the time. All these flashes light on Fury’s technical brilliance. But the Gypsy King is well aware of the danger. In his own words, “I’m playing with an atomic bomb, messing around clipping wires… a quarter punch from Wilder can knock fighters down.” A whopping 41 of the 42 wins for Wilder have come through knockouts.
Tyson Fury is an enigma. He doesn’t look ripped nor like a technical fighter. But he is. Critics and fans compare his footwork to the likes of Muhammad Ali. Some say that he is the second fast heavyweight after Ali. The greatest of all time, Ali misses and switches stances like no other. Fury misses and makes lateral movements in the Southpaw stance. This creates opportunities for him to deliver shots from unorthodox angles. Fury by decision and Wilder via stoppage are some of the wise options to contemplate.
