Tyson Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, believes the Fury versus Deontay Wilder duel at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, USA, on February 22, 2020, will be more promising for the British boxer. Warren rate, now people are starting to believe Fury can take WBC’s heavyweight title owned by Wilder.
Rematch Fury counter Wilder is seen as a battle that will take place closer than the first meeting in December 2018 last. At the first meeting at the Staples Center, Los Angeles (LA), December 1, 2019, Fury was an underdog with most observers assessing he would be a knockout victim, having just returned to the ring.
However, Fury reversed predictions by making an unexpected appearance by serving Wilder 12 rounds. Fury was dropped twice during the contest but was said to have won most of the rounds. The draw was also considered controversial.
‘The first meeting was a brilliant battle but the second will be much greater because now people believe Fury can take the WBC heavyweight title. The last time they clashed, Fury was underestimated because he had not been in the ring for a long time,’ Warren told Mirror.
‘But he showed in LA that night (the first meeting) that he was a better fighter than the two and he will prove it again next month.’
‘This will be the biggest heavyweight battle for decades. There are only seven weeks left until the night of the fight and I can’t wait for the big duel.’
‘Full appreciation must be given to the two boxers for agreeing on the agreed date. Wilder only fought in November so he barely had a break but he must not be weak.’
‘While Fury suffered a bad injury in the victory over Otto Wallin in September. But he never considered canceling the rematch and making sure his wounds healed well.’
‘Now, we have the battle the world has been waiting for to start what will be a big year for boxing.’
