Frank Warren Could See Fury "Fighting" Wilder, Jabs Hearn

Frank Warren, promoter for Tyson Fury, is hinting that his man may very well go on the offensive very early in his upcoming showdown with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

Fury will challenge Wilder for his title on December 1 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The fight will be carried by Showtime/BT Sport Pay-Per-View.

Wilder is regarded as one of the most dangerous one-punch hitters in the sport. He's knocked out every single one of his 39 opponents.

Fury did the unthinkable back in November of 2015 in Germany, when he shocked the sport by outboxing Wladimir Klitschko over twelve rounds to capture the WBO, WBA, IBF, IBO world titles.

Against Wilder, most insiders expect Fury to box behind the jab, move around the ring, and use a lot of defense.

But Warren believes a different scenario could play out - with Fury letting his hands go on an unsuspecting Wilder.

"Everyone thinks Wilder is a one-trick pony, but Tyson can’t underestimate him. Wilder is a much better fighter than people give him credit for. It seems like he’s got a good chin, he showed that in the Luis Ortiz fight. I’ve watched lots of his fights very closely. He’s awkward yes, but one thing he’s got is speed. Tyson’s got speed too. I just feel Tyson might take the fight to him," Warren told Metro.

"Everyone’s got in their mind how this fight will be, Wilder’s going to come looking for the big punches and Tyson’s going to be on the back foot and try to outbox him. But, I feel it could turn into a fight from the beginning. Somebody is going to try and stamp their authority on the fight and Tyson can have a fight with anyone. He can stand his ground, he’s got a good chin himself and let’s not forget he’s 6 ft 9 and unlike anything Wilder has ever come up against!"

Warren also took a jab at rival promoter Eddie Hearn, who tabbed Fury as a very "boring" fighter to watch.

"Look at what he did to Dereck Chisora. He did a complete job on Chisora and fought southpaw for a lot of that fight. Eddie Hearn says Tyson is the most boring fighter to watch, but he’s promoting Whyte against Chisora. Look at what Tyson did to Chisora. He never lost a second of any round. Dereck was coming in off of five good wins and Tyson took him to school. Broke him up, took him apart and Chisora had to pull out eventually. And that was in 2014, Chisora was at the peak of his powers then," Warren said.
