Steward: I Expect Fury To Knock Wilder Out - That's The Strategy

According to trainer SugarHill Steward, he agreed to work with Tyson Fury because he believes the 'Gypsy King' will knocked Deontay Wilder out.

Fury will challenge Wilder for the WBC world championship on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The fight between Fury and Wilder is a rematch of their December 2018 showdown, which ended in a controversial twelve round split draw.

In the first bout, it was Wilder who nearly knocked out Fury, who went down in rounds nine and twelve.

Wilder has not been stopped since losing to Evgenyi Romanov as an amateur in 2008.

Steward explained that their entire game plane is centered around a knockout victory.

“I’m predicting a knockout,” said Steward to The Mirror. “I don’t know about the round, but I see Tyson Fury scoring a sensational victory. I’m training him for a knockout, that’s the plan, to get a knockout.

“Tyson has been putting every effort into his training and I’m expecting a knockout. He’s going to knock out the knockout artist! I wouldn’t have taken on this fight if Tyson didn’t believe he could knock him out. That’s the only strategy for me.

“I think he won the first fight. But regardless of what I think, he didn’t win the fight. The judges made it a draw. He left himself in a position where he was not they sole decision holder. If you go out there and knock the guy out, then you are the judge.

“You don’t let anybody else be the judge. They always say if you want something doing, then do it yourself. He wants to win this fight, so he should do it himself and go for the knockout. He says he wants a second round knockout. Good, that makes my job easier! I don’t have to convince him to get a knockout. That’s what I believe in, knockouts. This makes us gel a lot better because we’re both on the same page.”

[QUOTE=Roberto Vasquez;20419526]Credit to him, he did it. He did look like he lacked power though. Most of the damage was done because he caught Wilder on back of the head. Wilder was gone from the 3rd round and Fury couldn't…
