Robert Garcia Believes Wilder Has a Good Chance To Beat Fury in Trilogy

World class trainer Robert Garcia recently went live on social media to answer fans' questions on various topics in the sport of boxing.

Garcia has a large stable of fighters that includes his brother Mikey Garcia and WBC/WBO super lightweight champion Jose Ramirez. He also previously trained world champions such as Marcos Maidana, Abner Mares, Antonio Margarito and Brandon Rios.

A fan asked Garcia for his thoughts on the upcoming trilogy bout between WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (30-0-1) and Deontay Wilder (42-1-1).  The two fighters first fought to a draw in December 2018. In their rematch Fury battered Wilder and stopped him in 7 rounds.

The third installment was originally scheduled for July 18th but those plans had to be scrapped due to the covid-19 pandemic.  The new date penciled in is December 19th at the new Allegiant Stadium which is the home of the Las Vegas Raiders.

Fury has already opened up as a 3-1 favorite at some Las Vegas sportsbooks but Garcia believes Wilder has a great chance to regain his title.

"I think Wilder has a good chance at getting his belt back. I said it before that I think something was wrong with him. He didn't say nothing or come up with any excuses besides saying that the outfit was too heavy but I really thought something was wrong with him. Even before he got dropped I thought something was wrong with him. He just didn't seem the same," Garcia stated.

The Southern California based trainer was also asked for his opinion on a potential Errol Spence-Terence Crawford welterweight unification bout which is a fight that boxing fans have been craving for the past couple years.

"Right now at this point I would have to pick Crawford over Spence because he had that (car) accident and we have to see how he is going to come back," Garcia explained.

A coward hope like Wilder has no chance, except get lucky through corruption aka vs Sconiers and Ortiz. Wilder is finished, exposed and now his people need to invest in a new hope, probably AJ after he professed his pro…

If the loss had been their first fight, Fury might come in ****y. Thing is, Fury isn't going to forget getting knocked on his ass and flat on his back. Fury is not going to overlook this fight. If Wilder…

[QUOTE=Mindgames;20659015]I think the reason Wilder has such a good chance is precisely because he didn't really make any excuses or anything. If the mysterious something wrong that he didnt mention goes away before fight three,he wins. Otherwise he loses, but…
