Deontay Wilder makes key change for huge Tyson Fury third fight

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will face off in the ring once again in October in their trilogy bout.

Deontay Wilder’s sparring partner Stephen Shaw has stated that the American is ‘trying new things’ ahead of his trilogy bout with Tyson Fury

The pair returned to the ring to face-off for a final time on October 9th in Las Vegas, with the winner then set for a potential clash with Anthony Joshua.

After a controversial draw in the first fight, Fury secured a comfortable win in the second meeting between the pair – wiping the floor with his opponent.

Wilder is now looking for revenge and, according to Shaw, this quest has led him to change his approach for the fight with new tactics on the cards.

“It’s kind of cerebral. He’s reserved, but he seems like he’s at peace,” he told the Sun.

“He seems cool to me. It’s not like, ‘Grrr, I gotta get him back. Nah, he’s like, ‘Fight night, they’re gonna see. He’s all business, that’s one thing I can say. I can’t wait to see it, I’m excited.

“Hopefully we will see a different Deontay. With the different things that he’s doing in camp and that Malik is adjusting and adapting him to, I see Deontay working on those things.

“It’s only going to tell on fight night but he’s definitely trying new things. He’s not just trying to hunt you down with one big shot.

“I think one of the mishaps he had before was thinking, ‘Guys have to be perfect for a whole 12 rounds, and all it takes for me is one second to change the fight’.

“Even though that’s true, it can go either way, it is heavyweight boxing and one punch can change the fight for Deontay or Fury.

“Trying those things and working on them and actually executing them on fight night is what is going to tell how this fight is really going to be. From my point of view, he’s definitely working on new things.”
