“When I beat him this time, his career’s over” - Fury vs Wilder
Fury and Wilder will duke it out for the third time this Saturday in Las Vegas. In February 2020, Fury destroyed Wilder to become world champion.
In their last meeting, Tyson Fury dominated Deontay Wilder, stopping him in the seventh round after tying in their first match in December 2018. After becoming the world champion again, Fury started getting calls about a matchup with fellow British boxer Anthony Joshua, but Wilder insisted on a rematch and got the courts involved to make it happen. The fight was originally supposed to happen in July, but Fury was out with Covid 19, so it was rescheduled, and now, we’re almost to the day.
Fury and Wilder talking trash already
The two boxers are feeling confident about the matchup and ready to go. “I’m here for a fight and I want a challenge,” Fury said. “I didn’t come all the way to America, and be undefeated for 13 years, not to get a challenge.”
Wilder says he is feeling rejuvenated as well. “I’m ready to go. Saturday night is going to be a special night,” Wilder said. “I think the fans are here for a treat, as they always are when the Bronze Bomber steps in the ring.”
The third part of the trilogy takes place this Saturday, October 9 with the boxers expected to make their ring walks around 11:30pm ET at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. On the line are the WBC and Ring heavyweight titles. The winner will face Oleksandr Usyk, who beat out Anthony Joshua.
