Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are now deep in preparations for their fight on December 1st and neither are taking any chances in their training.
Both men are putting in the graft as we speak with Fury now off social media and his trainer Ben Davison managing his social media presences until after the fight in LA on December 1st.
Wilder is always in top shape year round but you can tell in his recent interviews he’s now in training mode for what he knows isn’t a fighter to be overlooked.
Speaking to Tha Boxing Voice Wilder has now revealed his sparring partners as below.
Roberto Alfonso is a highly rated undefeated Cuban heavyweight with a professional record of 17-0 (8KO),
Michael Polite Coffie is a newly turned pro-American prospect, 32 years old and has a record of 4-0 (3KO).
Craig Lewis – an American heavyweight contender (34 years old) with a professional boxing record of 14-3-1 (8KO).
All three of the above are fairly big standing between 6’4 and 6’5 but that’s still nowhere near as big as Fury – who will enjoy a size and weight advantage over Wilder.
Interesting that Wilder has not looked to bring in any giants of Fury’s dimensions.
Granted they were probably hard to find, but nonetheless, Fury will be huge in the ring now for him compared to what he will have faced in sparring.
