The Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder trilogy concludes this Saturday 9 October 2021. The heavyweight champions have met twice and will meet for the final time in the fight that has been billed “Once and For All.”
Deontay Wilder, the Bronze Bomber, will be looking to come back stronger than ever after his defeat in their second fight. Tyson Fury knocked out Wilder in the seventh round meaning that Wilder lost for the first time ever in his professional career.
Tyson Fury, the Gypsy King, will look to reign supreme over his American rival and put the cheating rumours and allegations to bed by once and for all defeating Wilder.
Their first fight in 2018 ended in a draw after all three judges ruled differently. Fury then put in a defiant performance in the second fight, however Wilder accused the Manchester-born fighter of tampering with his gloves in order to win the fight.
In their final press conference on Wednesday 6 October, Fury retorted this suggestion by saying “I ask the question, if I only won because I cheated, what was the point of changing everything and doing all this other work?”
Since their rematch, Wilder has let go of his long-time trainers Jay Deas and Mark Breland. Wilder’s former sparring partner, Malik Scott, has come in a undertakes head coach duties for the first time in his career.
