Deontay Wilder seems immensely confident ahead of his trilogy fight against Tyson Fury. The pair will face each other in the ring on October 9 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will take place at the T-Mobile Arena, and Wilder will look to win the WBC and The Ring titles that are on the line.
Deontay ‘The Bronze Bomber’ Wilder, under his new training camp and trainer Malik Scott, feels very confident in his ability to win. Wilder’s powerful one-punch knockout power propelled him to stardom. In a recent interview with 78SPORTSTV, the former heavyweight champion addressed people claiming Wilder had the power to kill a man.
“I mean anybody in boxing can actually do it. Your head is not meant to be hit in the first place, so any of us can do it. Don’t take me more serious than anybody else that’s talking. Oh Wilder’s crazy, he got crazy power, he can actually kill. Man, ya’ll that’s bullshit man”
Wilder did not seem too happy with the media and news outlets fishing for stories. He said these news outlets take everything he says so seriously and they live off controversial stories.
Deontay Wilder claims Fury goth thrashed by sparring partners
Wilder says that Tyson ‘The Gypsy King’ Fury’s self-confidence shattered after getting beaten up by sparring partners. Wilder thinks Fury was not ready to fight him and they came up with the COVID-19 story in order to give Fury more time to prepare.

“He wasn’t ready. A lot of his sparring partners were piecing him up. The rumors are true. He was getting dropped, and he was getting pieced up. He wasn’t having a great camp. My thing is, you weren’t having a great camp then, and you’re not going to have a great camp any other time.”
On October 9, all the trash talk will stop as everyone will find out who the real heavyweight champion of the world is. Who do you think will get their hand raised, Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder?
