Although Tyson Fury may be facing the hardest puncher of his career when he faces Deontay Wilder on December 1, he won't be changing his training methods.
In a recent media call, Fury spoke with Fightful on how he is preparing for his WBC heavyweight title challenge against Wilder. Wilder has quickly become one of boxing's most fearsome knockout punches, winning 39 of his 40 pro fights by knockout, but if you ask Fury, it hardly factors into his training. Fury said he's not worried about Wilder's power and will do his best.
"I don't really focus on any of that, to be honest, I just do what I do and that's it. I don't really care what Deontay Wilder is going to bring to the table. As long as I do what I do best, I'm not really bothered by anything he does. I just hope he comes to fight, so that's what I'm hoping for," Fury said.
This will be Fury's biggest fight since shocking the boxing world in 2015 when he defeated Wladimir Klitschko to win the unified heavyweight titles. When asked how the preparation for Wilder has been compared to training for Klitschko, Fury said the only thing that changes in training camp are the sparring partners and their size.
"All training comes from the same whether I'm training for Francesco Pianeta, Wladimir Klitschko, Deontay Wilder or anybody, they're all the same. You just train, eat, sleep, repeat for a long period of time and that's it. The only thing that might change is the size of the sparring partners. The only thing that will change in the training camp ever is the size of the sparring partners, that's it," Fury said.
