Via Jim Calfa: Tyson Fury expects Deontay Wilder to appear as his mandatory WBC as the smoke clears out of the title elimination bout.
Wilder will face Robert Helenius in the WBC semifinal heavyweight match on October 15 on FOX Sports pay-per-view. If Wilder wins that match, he will face Andy Ruiz Jr for the final WBC elimination.
Although Ruiz Jr showed strong last Sunday night, beating Luis Ortiz in another WBC semi-final elimination, Fury still believes Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) will be the man. finally stood firm when all was said and done. .
“Looks like I’ll be fighting Wilder for the fourth time,” Tyson Fury said on social media, reacting to the WBC title removal setup.
It is possible that Wilder will be the man to become a mandatory WBC player, but it remains to be seen whether Fury will still hold the belt by the time he finishes with Helenius and Ruiz Jr.
Wilder must beat two formidable opponents he must beat in Helenius and Ruiz before he can win tickets for a fourth fight with Fury. Wilder 6’7 ″ will need to fight a lot better against those two fighters than Fury if he hopes to win.
Fury is likely to face dangerous former unified champ Anthony Joshua next November or December, and there’s no basis for him to win that bout.
Just because Joshua struggles with Oleksandr Usyk’s slick boxing style doesn’t mean he’ll have the same problem going up against Fury, who favors an upright and stationary boxer.
To be fair, Joshua will have a much easier time knocking Fury down than Usyk.
Fury’s fighting style has changed in two years, from a slick mover to a regular runner you see from second-rate cruising fighters.
That style works for Fury against Otto Wallin and Wilder, but it may not work for Joshua, who has the muscles and inner play to make him pay if he tries to beat him. ta.
Joshua’s top lanes are too close and the way he can land his powerful right arm while being held makes him especially dangerous for a mage like Fury.
If Fury beats Joshua, he will likely face Usyk for the undisputed championship in February or March. It was another tough fight for Fury.
