Deontay Wilder promises more pain for Tyson Fury in rematch!
Once again Deontay Wilder (42-0-1, 41KOs) displayed his remarkable power as he erased “King Kong” Luis Ortiz (31-2, 26KOs) with one devastating right hand in the 7th round in their rematch.
Wilder was extremely hesitant while being out-boxed by Ortiz literally the entire fight. However, the man hailed as the “Bronze Bomber” delivered on yet another knockout promise.
Now his focus turns towards a man many feel bested him last December in Tyson Fury. The two will get reacquainted on February 22, 2020.
In their first encounter, Fury controlled a majority of the rounds behind an excellent jab and ring generalship. Wilder would still catch him as he scored the only two knockdowns in the bout. The first came in round 5 and the second and most dramatic one happened in round 12.
Fury laid in a coma-like state as Jack Reiss counted to eight before the former unified champion rose to his feet! Many times in the past, referees have stopped fights over the similarity of a fighter looking as motionless as Fury was on the canvas for so long. To this day, Wilder believes he should’ve been awarded the knockout.
The British boxer would suffer a concussion in the fight from the bone-crushing power of the Alabama slugger.
BRING THE PAIN
Wilder has promised more than a concussion for Fury this go around.
“I gave Fury a concussion. If I had the referee I had tonight in that fight, we wouldn’t be talking about this right now.
“Come February, you know, I gave him a concussion and I’m planning on doing even more damage to him. They don’t want this fight or they would’ve really took the rematch.
“If he felt like he beat me like he claims it’s an easy one. That’s an easy rematch to take, but he don’t feel that way. They know I’m very dangerous with the right hand. He’s said it a million times and he’s going to feel it again, but in the worst way come February.”
Their first fight was thrilling and I expect more of the same come February. Can Wilder take out Fury in the same way he has done many of his opponents? He clearly feels he can and will.
The world will find out come February 22, 2020!
