Tyson Fury: “At this level, there is no room for error!”

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury (30-0-1, 21ko), isn’t going to fall into the trap that has hurt fighters thinking that once they knockout their opponent the rematch will be easy.

Now that a sign of life is being pumped back into boxing against the current COVID-19 pandemic, all eyes are focusing on the trilogy between the new WBC champion and former champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-1-1, 41ko).

The Alabama power puncher lost the belt back on February 22 via stoppage in the seventh round. He would go on to immediately invoked the terms of the rematch clause and a date was set for July 18.

However, the fight was canceled because of the current crisis.

Furthermore, many boxing pundits and fans believe that the Gypsy King will have his hand raised once again in the trilogy. Fury isn’t taking the bait and expressed the reasons why on a live workout feed via social media.

The charismatic British champion went live on social media and was joined by a member of the media where he was asked about a fight with unified champion Anthony “AJ” Joshua (23-1, 21ko).

However, the Gypsy King doubled down on not looking past Wilder as he stated earlier this month.

“Providing I beat Deontay Wilder, it’s not a given when you’ve been beaten for the first time in your life it can do two things to you. It can break you after seeing many times the bubble being burst.

“Or it can give you that bit between your teeth where you wanna get back and smash guys face in who beat you.

“So if I don’t prepare like I did last time for Deontay Wilder, like a trojan warrior with no diet cokes no distraction not doing any interviews nothing, then I can’t see myself winning again without the strict attitude. The strict lifestyle.

“If I go into this camp taking it lightly thinking I already knocked him out, it’s an easy fight, Deontay Wilder will most probably knock me into next week!

“I gotta approach this fight as if I am still learning. As if I didn’t beat him the first time or the second time and I am still very, very hungry.

“I have to put on a fantastic display because at this level now there is no room for error. One mistake can cost you big-time.”

This is a good sign from the WBC champion especially considering the fact his life spiraled out of control once before after reaching the highest of heights when he defeated unified champion Wladimir “Dr. Steelhammer” Klitschko (64-5, 53ko) back in 2015.

Fury would fall into depression and would be out of the sport for three years before finally coming back. Knowing this, it’s safe to say the WBC champion isn’t going to squander a second chance at establishing his legacy!
