Deontay Wilder will benefit with delay of Tyson Fury trilogy says Andy Lee

Trainer Andy Lee believes former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder gains more Tyson Fury in having their fight postponed three months from July 24th to October 9th.

Lee, who works with Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs), thinks the extra time that Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) will be getting from the postponement will help him because he’ll be able to work with his new trainer Malik Scott.

Still, Lee thinks Wilder will struggle mentally because of how he was beaten last year by Fury in losing by a seventh round knockout. Fury dominated the fight from the third round after clipping Wilder with a punch behind the head.

Whatever chance Wilder had to win the fight went out the window after getting clipped with the rabbit punch from Fury.

“I think it’s a benefit to [Deontay Wilder],” said Andy Lee to the DAZN Boxing Show on Wilder having the edge over Tyson Fury due to their fight being postponed until October 9th.

“Because he’ll have longer with Malik Scott, allow him to prepare, and more time to get himself in the right place mentally, because that’s what the challenge is for him is to be right mentally,” said Lee.

Even if Wilder wasn’t right mentally, he’s going to come out guns blazing on October 9th, looking to KO Fury with every shot. When Lee talks about Wilder needing to be right mentally, he’s overthinking the process.

Wilder is going to throw power shots whether he’s afraid or not. That’s just how he fights. In the end, the fight will come down to physics.

If Wilder can land one of his shots with full force on Fury’s chin, it won’t matter if he’s still haunted by the loss to him.

Fury will be knocked out just the same. The stuff that Lee is talking about would make sense if Wilder were afraid to throw punches, but he’s not. He’s going to come out and try and take Fury’s head off.


“I think after the second fight, the job of pace is done,” said Lee. “It will take an immense, immense effort to come back from that mentally for Wilder. So it’s given him more time, more time to get the style that Malik Scott wants to have.

“I don’t know what they’re going to do, whether they’re going to fight or try and box,” said Lee about Wilder.

Fury did a good job of coming back from getting knocked out by Wilder in their first fight in 2018. Wilder knocked Fury out cold in the 12th round, and the referee clearly should have stopped the contender.  Fury came back from being knocked out.

It might be harder for Fury this time because he’s not carrying around as much weight as he did in the second fight. He really bulked up last time for the rematch with Wilder, but that size is gone for Fury.

  1. John scary admitted to his son faking the covit and accused Americans of being stupid .
    I refuse to listen to that rubbish without responding .
    It’s us , the fans that make it possible for you to live in the lap of luxury .

  2. Now you’re in a pickle , in check , fight or flight . You are in the snake’s coil . You should have stayed home in Ireland , the snake’s were all exterminated in Ireland . Check ( mate ) ha ha ha ha ha .

  3. These boxing executive types have ruined America . Put on some good matches . You have more talent to work with than ever before. Bunch of cheating and smiling thinking it’s funny but it’s not .
    Honest square deal and may the best man win.

    • American culture is based on corruption . We want to see one boxer with padding in his gloves and the other guy with proper padding in his . Americans want to see one guy with all sorts of drugs in his hopped up frame and the other without .
      Please allow fury to use cocaine steroids and loaded gloves again . Do not clean up our national sport . Please allow fury to keep using detached thumbs for her gouging , wrestling , tripping and rabbit punching like he always has .

  5. As a white person , I am sorry and offer my sincere apology for the way the white race as a whole has mishandled this Deontay Wilder vs Tyson fury debacle .
    Correct The record books
    Give the belt back to it’s rightful owner Deontay Wilder
    Pay Deontay Wilder for his financial loss
    Fine fury
    Investigate and prosecute criminal actions
    Ask forgiveness of the boxing fans
    For once in your life , do the right thing .

  6. Beoncay Wilder the twerkanator got saved this time by covit . Next time you won’t be so lucky .

  7. Maricio Suliaman president of the WBC said that anyone who thinks there should be an investigation into the allogations of water spiking , gloves tampering and manipulation of the horse hair repositioning advantage , floppy glove or loaded gloves is stupid .
    So Wilder fan boys quit making excuses for beoncay the twerkanator . There’s no such thing as cheating , jay deas checked the gloves ,

  8. Deontay Wilder just keeps on getting better and better while fury is fragmenting both in his mental state and physical state .

  9. Dear Mr. Abby Normal ,
    Deontay Wilder can box real good , Malik helped Deontay Wilders foot work , combinations , and overall preparation . Malik’s biggest contribution to the legendary unfolding of Deontay Wilders legacy was and is the buffering of loud mouth , incompetent , phoney baloney , imbecilic , idiotic moronic mindsets like your anocranistic babbling .
    Ssshut up , be quiet now ! And forever , please .

  10. I was just joking about Deontay Wilder being second best . Deontay Wilder is the best heavyweight champion that ever lived .

  11. Agreed, very biased. Going on about a rabbit punch to the back of the head when it was the shot to ear that threw off his equilibrium and constant pressure that won it for Fury. Poor writing.

    • Deontay Wilder received 30 rabbit punches and with the tampered gloves padding repositioning advantage of bare knuckles clearly visible through the leather gloves .

    • Bias article ?
      If anything , this article is understating the fury cheating tactics and the corrupt boxing industry .
      I don’t blame you for being scared or at least precautious . I can’t see anything wrong with the gloves either , my gloves flop around all over the place as well and as for the bare knuckle photos , they are computer generated .
      It was an fair and clean boxing match and anyone who thinks otherwise Is stupid like Maricio Suliaman president of the WBC insisted .

  12. Watch out for that right hand of Wilder.
    He’s hiding that right hand in training and I believe he’s going to be much better prepared
