IBO / IBF / WBO / WBA Super heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua says Tyson Fury has a good chance of defeating Deontay Wilder this time. He thinks we’ll see another Fury now against Wilder, not the one in December 2018. Fury fought with the WBC champion Deontay Wilder after a long miss and a few weak opponents. Since then there have been a few tougher fights and time to prepare. In the first fight, he experienced Wilder’s strengths and weaknesses, and now he will use it against him. Joshua says Fury with his long arms will be able to keep Wilder away from himself. Although Wilder has enough just a moment, a good shot to win as he does against Ortiz. But a young, focused boxer who can stick to a pre-planned game plan can defeat him. In the first match, Fury almost succeeded, as if he hadn’t down to the floor in the 12th round, he’d probably have beaten Wilder in scoring.

According to Joshua, Fury’s mental and weight problems are a thing of the past, he will be able to focus on 12 rounds and avoid Wilder getting hit really hard. He’ll beat Wilder and take his WBC belt. He didn’t talk about Fury being able to knock Wilder out, he probably didn’t think so, but he could outbox him and win with decision. Incidentally, for Joshua maybe better if Fury wins. It might make it easier for him to unify the titles.

Fury does everything to win. Late enough, but he changed his coach, he is in the US with Sugar Hill Steward. And thinking of his serious eye injury last September, he hired one of the best cutman in the industry, Jacob “Stitch” Duran, to be in the corner on the rematch. Wilder said earlier that he would attack Fury’s previous injury and that if he could open it, this could be in serious trouble for Fury. If Otto Wallin was able to inflict so much damage on him with a blow, then the biggest puncher, the “Bronze Bomber” would do even more.
