Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder face one another for a third time.
In a little over a week’s time.
A highly anticipated match-up at heavyweight.
Involving two of boxing’s biggest characters and exciting talents.
Fury last time out dispelled all talk that he couldn’t punch concussively.
An adaptation to his style under Sugar Hill, his trainer, has seen a readjusted version of Fury in recent times.
Deontay Wilder no doubt will try to make it a fight.
Not a boxing match.
To impose his vicious punching power on the contest.
Wilder knows all about hard work as the latest episode of PBC on Fox pointed out.
At one point mentioning that he went from beer delivery to becoming the WBC heavyweight champion.
His punch power and work ethic makes him hard to write off in any fight.
No doubt about it.
Speaking to PBC on Fox in the build up Wilder spoke about his mentality ahead of the fight:
“A lot of people when the tough get going, they tend to give up. Everybody wants things easy in life. That’s just not how it works. Certain things need to be tough. You’ll never appreciate things if they come easy. You’ll never be perfect but that doesn’t mean you can’t practice it. We going to be targeting the body. Targeting the arms. Targeting the neck. Targeting the head. There is no body part that is not going to be hit. In the end my hands will be raised high in the sky. Not because I whopped his *** for twelve rounds but because I knocked him (Fury) out.”
The fight takes place at the T-Mobile Arena on October 9th in Las Vegas.
It should be a good one.
The heavyweight division is buzzing at the moment.
