The WBC heavyweight champion believes the American will be even more dangerous in their next fight.
Tyson Fury will not be underrating Deontay Wilder in their next fight. Fury overthrown Wilder as the new WBC heavyweight champion in February. A trilogy has been put in place for both boxers to get a third fight though it has been delayed because of coronavirus.
Fury, however, does not have a doubt about wilder’s quality saying the Bronze Bomber is still the king of a “one-punch threat”.
“Heavyweight boxing takes one punch. Dismantle Deontay Wilder? It only takes one punch off Deontay Wilder.”
“Still a very dangerous opponent, still a very hungry man, who is coming in there to prove his worth, to prove he can come back and become a two-time heavyweight champion.
“More dangerous than the last fight, for sure, do you know what? It’s just a boxing match. It’s a boxing match, I don’t look at it like anything else. You win some, you lose some. You never can tell.”
The trilogy fight between Fury and Wilder is being considered for outside of the US and the UK due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge, whenever that may be,” Fury said.
“I’ll get over there, nice and early, eight to 10 weeks beforehand. Put in a good, gruelling training camp. Hopefully, I’ll be injury-free and we’ll go out there and dance beneath the stars, in front of the world after the coronavirus.
“God willing everything goes to plan, and we both get out the ring safely and go back to our families in one piece, and the show continues to the next one, whatever that may be.
“I’d love to get out there and do what I do best, boxing, but it’s out of my hands. It’s out of everybody’s hands, apart from people who are running the world, and unfortunately, I’m not one of those, and I’m glad I’m not because that job is difficult. Much more difficult than taking punches in the face for money.”
