Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder face the third of their highly anticipated trilogy in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Wilder is desperate to claim back the WBC world heavyweight title he previously held since 2015 and retained no fewer than 10 times before being dominated by Fury in their rematch in February 2020.
Fury executed his game plan perfectly in that bout, knocking Wilder down twice. The pair’s first fight came back in Los Angeles in December 2018, when Fury survived two heavy knockdowns before a thrilling contest ended in a controversial split-decision draw.
“A lot of people are writing Wilder off in this fight,” Fury said as he prepares for the fight. “They almost look at him like he’s a bum. Like he can’t fight and he’s useless. You can’t write him off.
“Make no mistake about this, Deontay Wilder is the most dangerous heavyweight out there. Combine them all together and they don’t make a danger like Wilder. So that’s what I’m messing with. I’m playing with an atomic bomb, messing round, clipping wires.
“Every time you go into the ring with Deontay Wilder you’re playing with that danger.
“This is the third time now I’ve been in the ring with him and every single time he’s been very dangerous. He’s a very dangerous hombre with big, big power and he can close the distance quickly.
“With most boxers they need to hit you with five punches, with Wilder he can hit you with a quarter punch and knock you spark out.”
Wilder added: “I’m more focused now than I’ve ever been in my entire career. This is the second phase of my career.
“I had fun my first album coming, defending the title for five years, ten title defence — I gave my time to people and it was appreciated, but sometimes it wasn’t.
“At this point in time, we’re serious about everything. I’m super focused, I’m in a happy place, and I’m glad that I’m here.
“They say things happen for a reason and sometimes we don’t understand that reason until we get in a situation or a certain place in life and then we understand.
“And with me and my team, we understand everything that has happened and we’re just looking forward to it. I’m gonna beat his ass, just as simple as that. Just beat his ass.”
