From Charles Brun: Tyson’s anger signed his contract on Saturday to face Deontay Wilder in the Trilogy Battle on July 24th in Las Vegas. After signing, Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) made a knockout prediction for the first round against former WBC heavyweight champion Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs).
During today’s broadcast on ESPN, Fury said this about Wilder, “B ***, you’re being knocked out.”
Wilder already signed his part of the deal on Friday and appears ready to take out Fury. After Fury failed to sign the same day, there was some speculation that he would refuse and hope he could slip out of the fight.
Obviously, Fury could only do this if he paid Wilder a portion of the greens he would have received from his $ 75 million wallet for the August 14 fight against Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia.
Fury could have paid Wilder $ 20 million and probably got him out of the hair so he could continue the Joshua fight.
With Fury Jet setting going from one place to another around the globe, he doesn’t look like he chose boxing. In addition, Fury carries a worrying amount of fat around the sides of his waist.
It’s just a shame Wilder had to take Fury to arbitration to get his rematch with him because they had a contract from their previous fight last February.
With his new coach Malik Scott, Wilder has been looking like a completely different fighter since last year. As good as Wilder looks right now, it’s not surprising when he knocks out Fury in the first three rounds.
Anger doesn’t look like he’s in shape, and it seems like he’s too busy living the life of a millionaire. They hate to say it, but the money and celebrity lifestyle is causing Fury to lose his focus on sports. In other words, Fury no longer has a tiger eye like he used to.
Fury believes his rabbit-lashed win over an injured, one-armed savage last year means he won’t have to train, fly around the world, and work hard.
The contrast between Wilder, who looks slim, fast and devastatingly powerful, and that of the blubbery Fury is like day and night.
Not only does Fury look limp, he also appears slower and weaker than the fighter who forced Wilder into submission a year ago.
Fury’s physique makes him look considerably older than the fighter he was a year ago. I think the old adage is true, “If you don’t use it, you lose it.” The unfortunate thing about Fury looking mental and out of shape is that he apologizes when he loses.
