Tyson Fury Reveals What He’s Been Carrying in His Pocket For 18 months

Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury has announced that he’s signed his contract to face Deontay Wilder for the third time, expected to go down on July 24.

Fury would get 60 percent of the purse with Wilder receiving the lower sum. The heavyweights fought to a draw in 2018 and Fury earned a TKO victory to win the WBC heavyweight title in 2020.

Tyson Fury in an interview with ESPN opened up about his last fight.

He said, “You know I think he’s going to give it a good roll of the dice as this is his last hurrah. I’ve got his heart, his soul, his mojo everything of Deontay Wilder, I’ve got it right here in my pocket. I carry around with me for the last 18 months.”

“This guy is a glutton for punishment. He’s an idiot, he got absolutely dismantled and smashed to bits in our last fight. He wants that all over again. He’s either one of two things, either absolutely crazy or he’s a sucker for punishment.”

Following Fury’s miracle rise from the canvas to preserve a December 2018 draw in their first clash. The fighters struck a two-fight agreement after Fury delivered Wilder his lone defeat by TKO.

When television conflicts scrapped attempts for a December bout, Fury pursued Joshua. Wilder flexed his right to arbitration and won a ruling that their trilogy bout needed to happen by September.

Neither Fury nor Wilder has fought since clashing in February 2020. When Fury outclassed the previously unbeaten American to win via a seventh-round technical knockout.

The two fighters had previously battled to an epic draw in 2018 at Staples Center Arena in Los Angeles after Fury survived a 12th round knockdown.
