Leonard Ellerbe: “Wilder Knocks Fury Out Cold This Time!”

Floyd Mayweather’s right-hand man, Leonard Ellerbe, spoke with IFL TV a few hours ago, and he made a prediction ahead of the third fight (which we may or may not actually see) between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder which might surprise a good many fight fans. Ellerbe says Wilder will “knock Fury out cold this time.”

When asked why (and remember, Wilder took a fearful hiding in the February 2020 rematch with Fury), Ellerbe said we will see a “whole new Deontay Wilder this time.”

“Sugar Hill made some adjustments, they tweaked something [in Fury’s game]. It was a great adjustment. But Wilder can do some things where the advantages are in his favour,” Ellerbe said. “But he’s got to do it from the start. You know, he don’t need to sit back. He definitely don’t need to sit back, because Fury’s a tremendous boxer, especially for his size. But I fully expect, from what I know and, I’m privy to a lot of things that most people aren’t, and there’s a whole new Deontay Wilder that they ain’t seen. And I fully expect him to implement that when they go.”

There is no doubt about it, it would be one amazing heavyweight comeback if Wilder did manage to do what Ellerbe says he will, and knock Fury out, thus avenging his sole pro defeat, in so doing regaining his crown. But can Wilder really do it? The bit Ellerbe said about the “things he’s seen that most people aren’t privy to” is especially intriguing. Wilder has posted just a few snippets of himself training with new coach Malik Scott, and it’s tough to judge if Wilder has made any improvements or not.

Can Wilder really have turned himself into a “whole new Deontay Wilder” at age 35, nearly 36? Can Wilder do what he came close to doing in the 12th and final round of his first fight with Fury, and get the KO win? Ellerbe seems incredibly sure Wilder gets the KO this time. If the third fight actually happens.

  1. I really want wilder to knock him out finally but we don’t no fury didn’t ko him and he was out on his feet c’mon guys aj wud ‘ko fury aswel to big and strong

  2. Am I really reading a thread of people saying wilder is a better boxer than fury, wow just no.

  3. Nobody’s beating Fury for the next 2-3 years, he dominated the last fight & took all of the BB’s best shots , KO win in around round 4 for fury

  4. I just dislike how people love to predict and insult. Both are good fighters. May the better fighter win. Don’t let anyone discourage you Wilder.

    • Brian ,
      The reason I am hating with all my heart what fury stands for is because I am against the evil influences that tempt poor victimized fury with continually and consistently bribing referee’s , using steroids , glove tampering , doping opponents , manipulating horse hair gloves unlawfully , corruptively conspiring to commit fraud , and being allowed by you to sweep under the rug and hide expolsitory irrefutable evidence and crowing from the rooftops victory like you didn’t know he didn’t win .
      The UK long ago has tired of that banning fury from boxing forever .

    • Yeah the guy who said
      Costume was too heavy, Fury’s gloves were loaded, I had weak legs, my water was spiked, Fury’s gloves had no padding, had bicep surgery, disloyal trainer, complications in camp, I broke my arm, fight stopped too early, Andre Dirrell’s fault.” 😂

  5. Deontay Wilder is a much better boxer than fury . Deontay Wilder is faster , more coordinated , transitions smoothly through combinations , he has much better footwork and a better chin .
    I don’t know where people get.the idea fury is an master boxer . He is slow .
    Master cheater . Criminal who aught to have charges pressed for what he did in Deontay Wilder vs fury 2 .

  6. Anything can happen. Fury has taken Wilder’s best punches and still was right in front of him in their first fight to the end. And the second fight was all Tyson. Fury is a very smart fighter. We shall see. Good luck to both

  7. Fury will win again. BB was beat up bad in that last fight. If he went “out on his shield” he could possibly have died!! Wilder left a bit of himself in that ring.
    I think AJ and Fury should fight for undisputed then Wilder can be starched by the winner if he wants that smoke.

  8. Wilder can knock out anybody no question. But i don’t think he will sometimes a fighter just has your number and Fury has Wilders
