Boxing News: Deontay Wilder on his own preparations for his October 9 fight with Tyson Fury: “The sparring has been incredible. I’m not allowed to disclose names, but I can tell you that there have been a lot of people on the canvas”
In the build-up to their trilogy battle, Deontay Wilder claims he was warned by an insider that Tyson Fury was getting banged up in sparring.
After Anthony Joshua defends his IBF, WBA, and WBO titles against Oleksandr Usyk at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on September 25, Fury will defend his WBC heavyweight title against Wilder on October 9 in Las Vegas.
After contracting Covid-19, Fury had to postpone his bout, but Wilder has now told the PBC podcast: “I’m all set. I’m hoping they’re prepared. I’m hoping they’ve got their priorities straight. Their strategy, or how they intend to approach the war.
“I knew he wasn’t having a good time at camp. The young men were putting him back together.
“I had a young kid from my camp putting him back together.”
“When you hear those kinds of rumours with this type of high-calibre fight, those are not rumours, those are truths,” Wilder’s new trainer Malik Scott previously told the same podcast.
For his third fight with Wilder, Fury employed Michael Hunter, Christian Thun, Jared Anderson, and Efe Ajagba as sparring partners.
Regarding his own preparations, Wilder stated: “The sparring has been incredible. I’m not allowed to disclose names, but I can tell you that there have been a lot of people on the canvas.”
“Hopefully he is confident to go through [the fight] and not have anything go wrong,” he remarked of Fury.
He assured his supporters: “Deontay Wilder in a new light. You’ve never seen anything like this before.
“We’ve spent our vacation doing nothing but work, work, work.
“My mind was still working even though my body was resting.”
When they last met, Wilder lost his title belt and unblemished record due to a ring-walk costume that exhausted his legs, a “disloyal” trainer throwing in the towel (who has since been fired), and Fury unlawfully tampering with his gloves (which the WBC have ruled out).
“People don’t comprehend,” Wilder has now stated. They had no idea what happened. They are unaware of the truth.
“How did I deal with myself?” Whether others accept it or not, I know the ultimate truth.
“Having a violent mind yet approaching it calmly is the secret to triumph.”
“My silence is priceless. It’s all about silence, which is why I didn’t speak at the news conference. There isn’t much else to say.
“There have been so many people who are against me. They have proof, but they are unconcerned.
“I have a violent mindset.”
