Fury: Wilder is One-Trick Pony, Nothing Special Needed To Win

Tyson Fury sat down with popular American podcast host, stand-up comedian and MMA commentator Joe Rogan on Thursday night. Fury gave an incredible insight into his life since his triumphant victory against Wladimir Klitschko on Rogan’s extremely popular podcast ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’ from his studio in LA.

Fury’s mental health issues and road to recovery were explained in detail by the lineal heavyweight world champion in what was a deep and inspirational conversation with Rogan.
 
Tyson of course had time to speak about his upcoming opponent, America’s WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

The two giant athletes go toe-to-toe on December 1st at the Staples Centre, Los Angeles live on BT Sport Box Office.
 
Tyson told Rogan that he “hand-picked” Wilder as his opponent and explained how Wilder was a catalyst and motivation for his incredible comeback to the sport.
 
“I see this video of Deontay Wilder saying ‘Tyson Fury is finally done’.
 
“He did this video after seeing this photo of me being fat and said: ‘He’s finally finished and even if I did fight him in his heyday I’d have knocked him out’.”
 
The ‘Gypsy King’ also found offence in Wilder’s choice of words towards a heavyweight great; which happened to be about the boxer that Fury was named after.
 
“Before that, he was talking about Mike Tyson and how he’d knock him out in a round.
 
“And I thought to myself: ‘That’s very disrespectful to talk about someone who is not even in your era and all that sort of stuff’.
 
“So, I thought to myself: ‘If I ever do fight you I’m going to give it to you for that reason’.
 
“And then when I saw the other video of him saying I can’t come back he gave me that much more motivation to return just so I can beat Deontay Wilder.”
 
Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have been back and forth with each other dating back to before Fury’s famous upset against Klitschko.
 
The rivalry between the pair has intensified since the announcement of the fight and participated in a feisty media tour which saw the heavyweights come-together on several occasions.
 
Fury made sure he had the opportunity to share his reason on why he defeats Wilder convincingly on December 1st when speaking to Rogan.
 
“Deontay Wilder is a one-trick pony.” stated Fury.
 
He continued; “I don’t need to do anything special to beat him. I just need to be myself. Deontay Wilder is looking for that one right hand all night.”
 
“It’s a good trick though!” joked Rogan, with Fury responding with “It’s a very good trick, but we all know what happens when that trick doesn’t land… you’ve lost!
 
“You need more than one punch to beat me. You’re going to need to set it up with footwork, speed, feints, movement and he doesn’t have any of that.”
 
“If I get hit by a swinging right hand, I deserve to get knocked out, it’s my fault, I want it to knock me out, I’d deserve knocking out!”
 
“If I let Wilder swing one of those wild punches, swinging from the back of the hall and it hits me and knocks me out, I’d say ‘Thank you very much for putting me out of my misery! God bless you Wilder!’
 
“Because obviously I can’t be the great fighter I think I am if I’m getting knocked out by swinging punches.”

I agree that Wilder is going to have to add a few wrinkles in his game in order to be successful against Tyson Fury. He will need a constant jab in order to push Fury back to the ropes and…

[QUOTE=Mike Haynes;19225243]I guarantee Fury is gonna get at least a point deducted for holding.[/QUOTE] :rofl: No doubt! According to Fury though, if Wilder is swinging and missing, Wilder may get one for repeatedly rabbit punching Fury :rofl:

[QUOTE=REDEEMER;19232975]Just another random post, nothing true at all. Fury has a new team because his uncle wanted to concentrate on his son and fury wanted more strength involvement and he called Ben up who is great at implementing more direct…

When Fury faced Wlad you knew he had all the tools to cause an upset, it was just a matter of putting it all together. But Wilder is a different animal. It's been great seeing a refreshed and fit Tyson…

[QUOTE=Marchegiano;19226743]Not at all worried about Tyson beating Wilder. I was, but then he started talking more and more about what he plans to do and bubba his plans are all wrong. First his mental game. What the damn hell guy?…
