Boxing: Fury vs Wilder




Next weekend the time has come: WBC world champion Tyson Fury will play his world championship belt against ex-champion Deontay Wilder (live on DAZN from around 4:00 am).  It is the third meeting between the two heavyweight giants. 

Boxing: Fury vs Wilder




"All good things come in threes," as a well-known saying goes.  The fact that the third match between Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 Ko’s) and Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 Ko’s) takes place at all should be far more than just "good" at least for all boxing fans.  The only question is, who will have the better end on his side at that third encounter?

After the first fight, there was no winner - but neither was there a loser.  The second time it was Tyson Fury who not only secured the world title, but was also able to put the last critic in his place with a convincing TKO victory.  So now the third attempt to close the chapter "Fury vs. Wilder" - ideally, of course, with a clear victory.

But what makes this approach so interesting?  For one, both are heavyweights as they are in the book.  With their two meters tall, both protagonists cannot be overlooked.  On the other hand, there is the fascinating constellation "Boxer vs. Fighter".  The supposed boxer role was attributed to Tyson Fury right from the start - and rightly so.

It is also obvious that Deontay Wilder has earned the part of the knockouter.  The 35-year-old Wilder, who won 41 of his 42 wins by knockout, is considered one of the toughest puncher in heavyweight history.  But at the second fight, on February 22nd last year, the roles were reversed!  This time it was the "Gypsy King" who threw his adversary into the ring dust.

At dawn on September 25, Anthony Joshua will fight with challenger Oleksandr Usyk in a 12-round match for the WBO, WBA, IBF, IBO belts.  Judging that Usyk is the most dangerous opponent in his career after Wladimir Klitschko, Joshua still believes that he will win.

"I've only been preparing to deal with him for 3 months now. Those 3 months have been enough for me to practice how to get the angle, how to control the game when facing a southpaw puncher."

"Usyk must have heard stories of southpaw fighters taking down orthodox players. My job is to prove the opposite is also possible. An orthodox fighter will also cause a lot of trouble for a fighter.  southpaw."

 Anthony Joshua has always rated Oleksandr Usyk very highly.  That is not without reason.

Usyk possesses a very good set of spells, dangerous angles, and terrifying mischief in the ring.  After ending amateur competition with a record of 335 wins and 15 losses, Usyk only needed 15 fights to become the absolute champion in the cruiserweight division and still maintain a winning record to this day.  after 18 matches.

Joshua knows his advantage in this match.  He is taller, has a longer arm span, has a larger build, and has much more knockout power than Oleksandr Usyk.  But in front of a technical master like Usyk, just being big is not necessarily enough.

In early 2021, when Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury scheduled to face off in the summer, Deontay Wilder - former WBC king suddenly asked Fury to fulfill the rematch clause in the previous contract.

This forced Tyson Fury to give up his fight with Anthony Joshua to complete his third fight with Wilder on October 10.  Faced with the above situation, the WBO asked Anthony Joshua to perform the obligation to defend the title with Oleksandr Usyk.
