In an interview with Tyson Fury, he has said that Wilder is more dangerous than ever and won’t underestimate Wilder despite dominating him in their last fight. Obviously, Fury is going in as a heavy favorite and is expected to win but never count Wilder out. Wilder is hungrier than ever since he is not a champion anymore and will do whatever it takes to become a two-time heavyweight champion.

The first match was certainly a close fight and Fury applied a more technical style of fighting where he would use feints and choose to rather fight on the outside. He would wait for Wilder and counter, it is a difficult 12 round fight as Fury needs to be wary of Wilder’s right hand but if anyone can somehow pull it off it is Tyson Fury.

Although Fury got knocked down twice in the fight which means he at least lost two 10-8 rounds, but many still saw Fury winning the fight. That just shows that Fury dominated most of their first fight but sadly the judges saw it the other way and gave it a draw. Win, Lose, or Draw, it still made sense that they have to run it back.

Fast forward, Fury and Wilder did not fight immediately as there were issues with their team negotiations. Both went on to fight two more fights before booking the rematch. Wilder faced Luis Ortiz and Dominic Breazeale and all ended in a devastating knockout win for Wilder.

As for Fury, he faced two young undefeated boxers, Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin. Fury made a quick night against Schwarz but his fight against Wallin was not easy. In the early parts of the fight, Fury suffered a huge cut that would hinder his vision. Many were saying that the fight should be stopped since the cut was above the eye and it was a matter of time for the doctor to step in and stop the fight.

Fury still showed his tremendous heart and determination winning most of the later rounds. The cutman did a great job of preventing further damage and Fury ended up winning via unanimous decision.

A few months later, the Fury vs Wilder rematch was booked and somehow Fury decided to switch camps. Fury ended up training for Kronk Gym since he thinks that the style would be able to exploit Wilder’s weaknesses which later proved to be beneficial.

Fury just had a few months to prepare his Kronk Style against Wilder and he performed brilliantly. He managed to catch Wilder off guard, applying pressure to neutralize Wilder’s right hand. From Wilder calling Fury a pillow-fisted fighter ended up giving him, his first-ever TKO loss.

Now, one might assume that the beatdown that Fury gave Wilder meant that he will dominate once again in their trilogy. No, Wilder is still dangerous, he still has the “eraser” where he removes all his mistakes with one punch. Wilder’s power is still dangerous, and Fury still needs to be perfect the whole fight.
